Calgary Comic Expo 2010

Yesterday I went to my first comic book convention. I’m not sure why I’ve never ended up at a first proper convention like this before, guess I’ve always been put off by costs / having to get out to the NEC. This one was a little pricey but not too bad for a whole days entertainment – it was $20 and took place at Stampede park so pretty easy to get to (well assuming you live in Calgary that is!).

The main exhibition room was pretty huge full of lots of interesting and sometimes slightly strange displays. I was taken aback abit with the Vulcan town stand but it did reaffirm by need to travel south to Vulcan – yep there really is a town called [Vulcan in Alberta]. Overall I had a very good day with the highlight being hearing Leonard Nimoy talk about his career and watching him get “white hatted” by a bunch of storm troppers. Great fun. I have a video of this, so take a look below and you shall find it (it’s about 8 minutes long).

There were quite a few people dressed up too.. some much more impressive than others but it was fun to see how people went about things..

Overall a great day and if you fancy hearing some of the Leonard Nimoy talk here you go (if you can’t see the video try [here]:

Oh and if you want to watch Gumby faceplanting on stage:
