Salt Lake City Comicon Review 2015

Hey everyone, I am back from Salt Lake Comicon! Spending some quality time with my wife and #SLCC15 #EPIC .My Wife and I took in the first panel of the Convention which was Marina Sirtis and her panel was pretty funny.  It was fantastic, we took in a number of panels and even got interviewed by none other than Skelator Ace Report of #IdiotBoxProductions Podcast aka #IBP AT 1:06 CHECK IT OUT #SkelatorAceReporter

I didn’t know that Menopause was such a big part of her life as of late. ( Oo; really…. not joking need to check it out) then we just sat in the grand ballroom for the next Panel which was the one my waifu (My wife) and I were waiting for the Scott Wilson Panel. He’s had a long filming career and I didn’t even know he was in the late samurai movie. The Q & A were pretty funny as well and afterwards we strolled around checking the Dealers Floor and checking out some of the awesome Cosplayers that were there. Plus #JohnBarrowman was there #GOTEAMBARROWMAN ! Oh and we got to hear him sing, brought a tear to these old eyes. Here is the panel itself enjoy it please!

I ran into #ShelyLundberg and #NathanJodzko #DenverBradbury and other friends while my wife and I were there. Got a chance to get #PhelpBrothers autographs, as well as #JennaColeman. I was Cosplaying the entrepreneuring Aperture/BlackMesa Double agent-Scientist (Since I could) and ran into the #Glitch booth and found an excellent #Aperture Polo I can wear at work. Wife bought some small items from artists alley. I got a ton of pics as well and I will update this later when I have access to my camera soon.

I think the only real issue I have with #SaltLakeComicon is the fact they close the dealers room WAY too early. I’ve been #SDCC as some of you know in my younger days, and I will say the dealers room there stays open till 9 pm for two of the 3 days it was open and then till 3 to 4 pm on the last day for tear down and clean up. But they kept the rooms open because they knew there would be those that came in late due to work or whatever, but it gave them a chance to get the items they wanted to get for their collection/cosplay/library/props. On a side note I am hoping that #SaltLakeComicon gets #PeterCapaldi to come to #FanX1016 that way I can get his autograph with #jennacolemans ‘s on the photo we picked up at The Con a couple of days ago.

Oh yea, #ChrisEvans and some of the marvel avengers were there too. 😛

OH Ok, fine yea he was there with #HayleyAtwell #SebastianStan and #AnthonyMackie they did a panel or two togther as a group and individually as well. The Celebrity Row was PACKED to the brim Saturday for autographs and pictures with the Marvel team and I think we might even see #SLCC become one of Marvel’s Fave Conventions to come to as well in the near future, after all #Stanlee did say we had the Greatest Convention so far. My hat is tipped to #DanFarr and #BryanBradenburg for a successful Convention and turn out, and I do hope that they’ll consider having the dealers room open just a little bit longer on the next Convention or maybe even at #FanX to experiment and see how the crowds react to it and see if more purchasing and people come as well.

ASL – Anime Salt Lake here we come !


Well, it’s less than 24 hrs. away and I’m already prepping and getting ready to invade ANIME SALT LAKE! It’s snowed this morning so we’re all hoping this is just a pass over it will be gone by this afternoon and we won’t have to worry about it tomorrow, especially for some of the cosplayers that will be attending this ASL. I will of course be Tomodachi from 20th Century Boys, The Manga, and Live Movie adaptation by Naoki Urasawa. I love that guy as much as a bad guy he was portrayed as I think personally he was just misunderstood and that is why he walked the path and took a wrong turn and only at the end his journey did he and the others realized that he had found the path back, but a little late at that point.

Some of the fun that was had Last Year at ASL 2012.







But we’ll be on the lookout for Chris Rager Voice Actor Extraordinare, Mr. Satan, Hercules, King Yama from The DragonBall Z Franchise from FUNimation. As well my new Video Character Mr. Torque of Borderlands 2 – By Gearbox and as Arlong Lord of The Auquadic Kingdom in the mainstream anime of One Piece . Also a rare opportunity to meet up with fellow podcast team Hello Sweetie, which will be at ASL Saturday evening March 23rd with Ms. Danielle Britton Crafterian of Jewelry Lovecraft Style and an Artist of some talent as well. 😉 SO, be ready and if by chance you see us on the floor at ASL? Don’t hesitate to say hi to us.

Here is Chris Ekstrom on and His Live Action Anime Panel 101
