As I sit here sipping my tea looking over my pictures from the weekend I can’t help but think of how great of a weekend it truly was.
Yup, that’s my name in the top center column! It was the first of my two panels (my second one was on crafting). Being on the panel was a fun experience. I think I may do it again next year.
So as I mentioned I was planning on doing some cosplaying. Here is my Captain Jackie Harkness:
I am really proud of how it turned out. I think I was a unique Jack.
Of course I wasn’t the only one cosplaying this weekend. Here are some photos of some other great cosplayers from this weekend:
Because of course Mary Poppins is a Time Lady!
Jackie and the Doctor
The Doctor and his Daughter (my friends Angel and Becky)
My friend (and Author) Robin Burks as Rose
Of course you never know who you will run into in the dealer room:
Yes that is THE Chris Hardwick, my favorite Nerdist Podcast Host. I also got to meet Chloe in person and let me just say she is just as nice and adorable in person as I thought she would be.
In between shopping, plays, interviews and panels I got to meet some pretty awesome people that have had a hand in making Doctor Who the awesome show that it is today. Gallifrey One had a special brunch where I got to have eat with members from the original show. How could I turn that down brunch AND Doctor Who, two of my favorite things all rolled into one delicious event. Here are a few pictures of some of the people I got to have brunch with:
This is Frazer Hines, better know as Jaimie from the highlands during the Patrick Troughton years (the Second Doctor).
The lovely Deborah Watling, also known as Victoria another companion of the Second Doctor.
In addition to getting to meet Deborah and Frazer, I got to meet Colin Baker (the 6th Doctor), Matthew Waterhouse (Adric), and Terrance Dicks (sp?), a script editor for the show.
Here are a few other pictures from my adventures this weekend:
All in all it was a great weekend. Needless to say I am exhausted. So if you will excuse me, I am going to go get some more hot water for my tea and cuddle with one of my pups.
