Fan Expo Vancouver: Day Two

There’s something very special about day two of the Fan Expo. I noticed it last year too, but I put it down to only discovering that I was really into comics in the second part of Sunday. This year was very different – once I’d sorted out David Prowse’s autograph on my limited edition translucent-helmet electrified Darth Vader figurine (OH YES), I headed straight for the art and spent most of Saturday picking through my favourite pieces. Somehow, today was far more relaxed (even if, at times, it didn’t feel any less busy) and I had a great time chatting with all the cool people that surrounded me, as well as waiting two hours to again meet David Hayter, AKA Solid Snake (who jointly holds the title of Nicest Celebrity Ever with Micha Collins).

So, thanks to the organisers for making today go much more smoothly, and a huge thank you to all the cosplayers who posed instantly when I went in for my photo. See you next year!
