Steel City Con December 2018

Post by Cozmik » December 10th, 2018, 6:26 pm

Most every con I go to involves a lot of traveling one of the great things about Steel City Con is 3 times a year its a short trip for me. The bonus this time every one I wanted was doing table ops which not only saved me money but saved me from one of Steel City Con's few negatives, waiting days to get a digital copy of a photo to come by email.

This time around I had a short list of celebs I wanted to meet and got them all done in a couple of hours.

First off I hit Jerome Flynn, Bronn of Game of Thrones, for a combo plus an additional autograph on a Funko Pop.

Next was Adam Baldwin of Firefly and Independence Day. I had met him at Dragon Con in 2005 and had him sign an 8x10 for my wife's birthday and this was a chance to get an autograph of my own. So again it was combo and a Funko Pop.

Next it was over to the stunning Natalia Cordova of Agents of SHIELD. The camera doesn't do her justice. While I was standing in line I met Joresky for I think the 3rd time and Greg2600 and they pointed out djknightrida, who was standing in another line, to me who I don't think had any idea who I was lol. Asian Dave also stopped by and I got to meet him. Really cool meeting you all. Anyway went for the combo from Natalia, who was super friendly .

And then it was over to Henry Simmons of Agents of SHIELD, also incredibly fan-friendly for another combo. This just leaves Iain De Caestecker as the last of the cast I need. He's rare but maybe someday.

And finally, I had a Funko Pop I needed signed by Brent Spiner. Spiner's line was the slowest I've seen because he was being very talkative with every person waiting to see him. Always a thrill when you meet a celeb who wants to give you some time.

It was a really fun morning and I really liked meeting all the celebs and the guys from Marked Out.

Awesome stuff, man. I still need to meet Spiner.

I met Michael Dorn and he was a big disappointment.

Yeah, the times I've seen Dorn he acted like he was annoyed to be doing cons. Spiner seems to be really enjoying meeting fans these days.
