There was much awesomeness to be had at today’s Salt Lake Comic Con. I don’t want to spoil our future content, but I thought I would highlight what was awesome and what will be coming in more detail:
We got there at 11am for the opening press conference. We saw Where we saw Lou Ferrigno talk about Ferrigno Legacy. We sang to Jason David Frank because it’s his “29”th birthday (while he ate some cake). We heard Manu Bennett pledge $1,000 to help a little girl with cancer.. and then turn around and challenge every other celebrity on the stage to do something similar. We saw tons of cool cosplays and artists.
After the conference, we got a chance to interview a handful of the celebs that were there. We were able to speak with Lou Ferrigno, Jason David Frank AND Manu Bennett. We’ll post videos of those interviews soon. Lou is a bit of a low talker, so we’re crossing our fingers that the audio picked up on that one.
Lots of local cosplayers walked through the Salt Palace in costume for a parade for all of the children that had been invited to come. Video of that event to come soon.
We hit as many of those today that we could. Including the Non-Cosplay Costume Contest. Summary articles for the panels coming next week. Gallery for the costume contest coming soon.
Lots of info and fun stuff coming soon, stay tuned!
