Ottawa has Comiccon in early September, and of course I went. I go mostly for merchandise and the photo ops that such an event includes, but the event includes panel discussions, cosplay, celebrity guests, and much more. It was busy, and got more so as I was inside.
A most elusive fellow was, oddly enough, easily found. I did not see Carmen Electra, however.
Display cases included some rather dangerous looking items, some definitely from science fiction. I contemplated buying a steel reproduction of Thor's hammer. Maybe next year.
Close by, business cards for this establishment were in the head of this little Groot, from Guardians of the Galaxy. The Groot in the comics at present is planet sized and consuming entire planets. It's a long story.
The 501st Legion is a Star Wars cosplayer group, and of course they were here- with members in costume as well as a few droids running about. Including the most foul mouthed character in movie history, whose every word has been bleeped out.
Darth Vader having a rest before going on a walkabout to Force-choke an admiral who's failed him for the last time.
There was a moment with Artoo that I found hilarious. The droid rolled up to a baby in a stroller. As the parents looked on, the droid beeped and chirped. The baby just stared in total fascination.
