Fun at Fan Fest 2016

Cosplay, panelists and competition!

As I look forward to 2017 (and a certain New Years Resolution to keep up more with my blogging), I spent some time looking back through some fun in 2016, Phoenix Fan Fest being a part of that!

 

Needless to say, the trendiest cosplays at Fan Fest were anything and everything related to Stranger Things.

This wasn’t that surprising considering David Harbour and Millie Bobby Brown had a panel together, where everything from babies to drugs was discussed, with David Harbour saying that he’d love to play Indiana Jones some day, so long as he gets to pop anti-depressants before heading out to save the day.

And yes, he is as awesome in person.

Who else was awesome? Tim Rose (AKA Admiral Ackbar). He spent his entire panel telling us stories about all the creatures he’d built and brought to life (yes, his work on Labyrinth is DEFINITELY my favorite).img_20161023_132946

Finally, what other awesomeness did I engage in? PUGS of course, for an explanation see this post here. And for the first time since 2014 I WON! With a little help from my husband.

joinus_bannerHey Readers,

elizabeth_henstridge_bioLet’s start with the not so good. Unfortunately for Doctor Who, Broadchurch and Legends of Tomorrow fans Arthur Darvill had to cancel his appearance, “due to filming commitments”.

The good news though, especially for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans is that Elizabeth Henstridge will a guest at Fan Fest this year, having a joint panel with Brett Dalton on Saturday from 4:00-5:00 pm, with photo ops starting at 11:00 am on Saturday.

Are you planning on going to Fan Fest? Who are you most excited to see? Let us know in the comments!
