With panels featuring amazing actors and a convention full of colorful characters, it's the perfect setting for a kindergarten teacher to unwind and a writer to gather new ideas. (But yes, a character based on John Barrowman would be larger than life.)
Some words of wisdom from my first Con:
Do good things just to make the world a better place. (Stephen Amell)
Smile when you feel down and choose a happy life. (John Barrowman)
If you haven't found the part that's made for you, keep looking. (Stephen Amell)
People don't love you? Why should you care? (John Barrowman)
The overall message of the Con is clear:
Whatever your passion, let your geek flag proudly and loudly!
And just to prove I take my own advice...
