Obviously this is literally a drop of the huge ocean of opportunities you have to enjoy at Megacon Orlando. I’ll mostly be concentrating on anything Marvel related and I’ll toss in some DC and Cosplay as well. The Ming Na Wen and Elden Henson panels are at the same time which is heartbreaking but otherwise they did a pretty good job breaking everything up. I’m proud of this team that works so hard each and every year.
Oh I forgot to mention the John Barrowman Q&A that you absolutely can not live without seeing. But be prepared for how high energy he can be. I’m high energy and he exhausted me. It’s also not the safest for small children in my opinion, he is one fun crazy dude and colorful is a word that barely covers it. Oh how I love that man.
Finally I’m really hoping a specific exhibitor is on site who I met 2 year back. He sells these adorable little books for children that are handmade and tell stories using Doctor Who. Something like “10 Little Cyberman Jumping On the Bed” for example. That’s not really one of them, I made that up, but you get the point. My friend Dori is coming to town with her new baby and I want to buy a few of these for my Whovian friend so fingers crossed. I’m sure there will be a ton of other unique gift options as well throughout artists alley. Plus you can get a tattoo, so there’s that.
