Fan Expo 2008 aka the highlight of my life because I met Edward James Olmos

Me and Rorschach!

So today I can die a happy woman because I met Edward James Olmos (Bill Adama from Battlestar Galactica) and Brent Spiner (Data from Star Trek) at the Fan Expo in Toronto.
I attended three celebrity question and answer periods featuring Spiner, Olmos along with Aaron Douglas (Chief from Battlestar Galactica) and finally Sean Astin (Samwise Gamgee from Lord of the Rings.) It was beyond cool seeing my favorite TV and movie actors in person. I got to sit right up at the front with my borrowed press pass and took lots of photos. Brent even gave my friend props!
The great thing about these actors is that they are so personable and approachable and are really grateful to be there and truly love their fans.
After the Q&As I went to the autograph line to meet Olmos, and while I couldn't afford $60 for an autograph we did chat for a few minutes and he almost cried when we talked about the end of the series which made me almost cry.
Anyways, I took a bunch of photos of the people dressed up as their favorite animé/sci-fi/comic book/horror hero. Some of the pics (like one of me with Rorscharch) are on another camera so I'll be posting those later. The amount of time these people must have taken to put together their costumes is incredible because they were so detailed and true to the character.

And even though this isn't fashion related, a couple of pics of my heroes for anyone who is interested:

Update: Here's a video of Olmos speaking at the Fan Expo Q&A:

What prince-o3-tour would be bettre in my opinion would be to remove the wrist straps and the skin, and instead make it a 2 babolat pure drive, 2 stereing wheels, 1 baseball bat and 1 golf club. Still, this package is great value for your money. When my wife informed me that Emporio Armani was now pushing its own signature wilson k six, the EA7, I’ve got to admit, I was intrigued. Italian designres producing tennis rackets? How fashion forward of thstrong. I love it. head microgel is style and preformance at cheap tennis racquets best. Haute couture meets the hard courts.
