Sadly there were no Ryan Reynolds sightings at Wondercon on Saturday (he was there, I heard, on Friday), and even though I was a bit out of my element I still had a wonderful time rubbing elbows with people much more knowledgeable about comic/pop art than me AND I even got to meet the infamous Elvira, which was...well, surreal, since I remember loving her back in the '80s when I was a kid. Another high? Standing two feet away from the Lou Ferrigno. Amazing!!
|Lou Ferrigno: The original hulk.|
|Richard Kiel, who you may know from such movies as Happy Gilmore, The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. Kiel is HUGE and tops out at 7'2''.|
|Elvira: The original creator of The Poof.|
|And this is...not me...posing with Elvira.|
|The throne from Game of Thrones, which is premiering on HBO soon. I haven't read the books but I've heard many good things -- my brother is absolutely obsessed with the series.|
|We got to watch Jon Favreau (awesome!!) and Roberto Orci talk about their movie coming out called Cowboys and Aliens, and were also shown a nine-minute sneak peak from the flick.|
|Favreau seemed very cool and humble, nothing like you'd expect from Hollywood.|
