Just bought my ticket for Florida Supercon, July 12-15.
So far the only Who guest is John Barrowman, but they usually have more than one.
So far, they have some Star Trek and other guests, as well as some comic artists.
I reserved a room at one of the Supercon hotels, too. Totally worth it for the Fast Past - I won't have to wait in long lines to see celebrity guests and get into events. Also, last year there was a huge traffic jam for people trying to get to the con on Saturday and Sunday, which I won't have to deal with, as I'll be right across the street from the convention center.
Finally sharing my photos from Florida Supercon last month.
I met Gates McFadden, Dr. Beverly Crusher from Star Trek TNG, at Florida Supercon. She was lovely to speak with. She’s a fantastic dancer, too, tap danced with Nana Visitor at their Q&A.
Meeting Nana Visitor, Kira Nerys from Star Trek DS9. I was surprised how tall she is. She said, “I’m wearing high heels.” 🙂 But we also discussed the fact that she looked short in DS9 because so many of the other actors were so tall. (I was later informed by a friend that's she "only" 5'7" - which is still taller than me.
This is how I was dressed the first day of Supercon, wearing a hat and a Tom Baker scarf. Including a Doctor Who t-shirt. And the first few people I met, including the Supercon volunteers who checked me in, thought I was cosplaying either Harry Potter or Mary Poppins. 😯
Me with a Giant Duck. A bathroom renovation company in the Supercon exhibit hall had it there for photos. I took the pic because my daughter-in-law's last name means something to do with ducks.
I also met Mike Colter, who plays Luke Cage in the Marvel shows, and had this conversation with him. Me: I haven’t watched season 2 yet. Him: What are you doing to me?! Me: Well, you see, if I start watching... Him: You’ll have to watch the whole thing at once. Both of us: Laughter
And Sadie Sink, Max in season 2 of Stranger Things.
Stage 9 Studios had a set of the bridge of the Enterprise at Supercon for people to take photos, so someone got the idea to do the Doctors on the bridge of the Enterprise.
But first, the owners of the set wanted to do photos with Billy the Marlin, mascot of the Miami Marlins baseball team, so we did the Doctors on the bridge of the Enterprise with Billy the Marlin in the captain's chair:
Then we did the Doctors on the bridge.
Hold onto your hats, the Doctors are doing some crazy flying!
A friend of mine has a small TARDIS model that he takes around to cons and uses for photo ops with cosplayers and celebrities. (You can also spot it in the pics above on the bridge of the Enterprise.) He calls it The Legend of the Traveling TARDIS. He apparently also has or participates in a podcast now.
Almost forgot to upload my professional photo op with John Barrowman. With the scarf, of course.
Forgot to mention that when he first saw my Blake's 7 shirt, in the selfies upthread, he exclaimed, “Doctor Who AND Blake’s 7!” I told him that almost no one here knows Blake’s 7, but I knew he would, which is why I wore the shirt. He liked that.
Mike Colter and John Barrowman are likely the two nicest people I have met. Mike Colter is especially down to earth and doesn't let it get to his head that he is famous. He is just there because he loves that people love his work.
