|Rob, Tariq, and I with a few Star Wars characters. |
Rob and I both booked Friday off last weekend to attend Fan Expo Canada. We hadn't been in a few years and were both looking forward to going. I was thrilled to hear Rob's long time friend, Tariq was going to meet us there as it's been years since I'd seen him too.
We didn't do any celebrity photo-ops or panels, but chose to browse the exhibits and displays. We both enjoyed watching a number of children get sorted into their houses by the "Sorting Hat" in the Family Zone.

Without a doubt our favorite part of Fan Expo and Comic Con's are the cosplayers. I love seeing the fans dressed up, and so many of them put in such hard work to making some unbelievable outfits. I also love that cosplay organizations like the 501st Legion
and Ontario Ghostbusters
set up elaborate displays and raise money for charities.
|I found a friendly Storm Trooper!|
We met Violet Love in 2014
(click date) when I almost ran her down, I got overly excited when I saw her, as she was dressed as Vampirella, one of Rob's favs. She now has a huge fan base and a booth of her own at these shows, and we are always happy to see her. She remembers us fondly, as it's probably not often a wife is throwing her husband at her for photo ops. LOL!
|Rob with Violet. She makes all her own costumes. |
|Tariq was happy to meet "Wonder Woman". |
The Lego creations at this years event were amazing!

You never know who you are going to see "cosplayed" at these event's and the following are a few of my favs from Friday.
|We both thought "Fat Thor" from Avengers's End Game was awesome and unique!|
|First time seeing a Ghost Rider at one of these events, I was thrilled!|
|We've seen these Hobbits before, but what an awesome costume!|
It was a long day with lots of walking, but so much fun. New discovery this year was Deadly Grounds Coffee
which provided a much needed afternoon boost. The blends we tried were wickedly good, and we plan on visiting their cafe when we are on vacation next month.
I also scored a couple original Sabrina comics for my collection! Looking forward to next year, maybe I'll even dress up!
You both look so happy at Fan Expo! That place is a lot of fun. Everyone can be themselves at Fan Expo.
