Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo 2014
Another (great) year of geeks-gone-wild at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo. Loving the sci-fi horror classic, Aliens' panel and full cast meet and greet. It's one of my favourite movies of all time. Glad that they brought famous cosplay girls this year - and not ashamed to say I'm a big fan of Jessica Nigri. With the added morning parade to kick-off was a huge bonus. And how could I resist not going when knowing BBC's Dr. Who's 11th doctor (played by Matt Smith) was there? Though personally I found the vendors were a little "bland" this year, but I did enjoy seeing all the quality costumes/cosplays at the expo. This event had certainly became a "2nd Halloween" celebration each year - minus trick-or-treating. Blending classic American superheroes and Japanese otaku exhibited the multi-cultural dynamics of Canada. Also very excited to see the expo expanded utilitzing almost the entire Stampede ground, which attracted more than 90,000 visitors. The biggest comic expo in all of Western Canada has now become an annual festive tradition for yyc.
