My Geek Fest in September
For the last few years, I've been hitting at least one sci-fi convention a year if possible. The major I got to on average is in Toronto each year and its run by Hobbystar. Its the ultimate convention because it has stuff related to games, anime, comic books, horror, and sci fi, and the entire top convention floor is merchants and their crap to sell. I love it!
Over the last few years of conventions, I've had the privilage to meet stars like Ted Raimi from Xena: Warrior Princess, Nicholas Brendon from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Kevin Sorbo from Hercules, and many others. I've gained a small but loved autograph collection, as well as some photos of the celebs I didn't get an autograph from (Too expensive).
I've picked up some useless junk over the years to from the convention, included two Dawn Action figures, a few Xena magazines, a few Dawn comics, Star Wars Figures from the 70s, etc. Nothing to write home about, but still loved.
This year I'm heading out again, and to add to my day of Geekiness, I'll be added in the experience of Video Games Live at Massey Hall. Here's a small writeup about the show and a video of the first few minutes of the event.

This year they have only a few people I'm interested in seeing like Tommy Tallarico from Electric Playground, and Carrie Fisher from Star Wars, but all in all, I tend to go for the guys in Sailor Moon costumes. No, just kidding. I go for the hot asian chicks in anime costumes.
I'll have a huge story from all of you when I actually go on the weekend of September 1st.
