At the beginning of this month Hot Donna and I attended the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con for the second year in a row. As with any convention one of my favorite parts is checking out everyone’s costumes. Somewhat surprisingly I’m not (yet?) a cosplayer myself but I sure do love when others dress up.

There were so many amazing costumes. I’d have more photos but I was only able to attend for two days, Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we had a ton of stuff to do (attending Q&A’s, getting photos with celebs, seeing Ghost of the Robot in concert, etc.) so I didn’t have much time to snap pics. Sunday we were exhausted. Plus there aren’t as many people dressed on Sundays (or so it seems to me).

We spotted this freaking awesome group of folks dressed as Game of Thrones characters right after Hot Donna picked up her ticket. They are fab!

xena sm
It was a possibility that I was going to interview Kevin Sorbo at this con (it didn’t end up happening), so when I saw a chick dressed as Xena I had to take a photo. Nice pose, BTW.

spirit
I’m one of those people actually enjoyed the film The Spirit so I totally had to get a photo with this guy, great job!

troma gumby
I’m not the biggest Troma fan. I think I’ve seen two of their films but c’mon, a killer Gumby? Fuck yeah!

simmons coll

This dude’s Gene Simmons (Kiss) costume was awesome! We ran into him a few times and he gave us tips on things to check out. At one point I jokingly commented to Hot Donna, “Why is Gene Simmons always telling me what to do?”. I want his boots, seriously.

dalek coll

dr who
I’m not a Whovian but thanks to my boyfriend I can spot a Dalek and a guy dressed as Dr. Who standing next to a Tardis. The Dalek was traveling very quickly so I had to chase him for a minute. Yes, that’s a real guy in there! I’m always impressed when I see robotic R2D2s at cons but this freakin’ blew my mind. You can check out Bob the Dalek’s Facebook here.

Tusken Raider
I love me some Star Wars costumes and this one was so neat. This guy was headed in the direction of the 501st Garrison Carida (a Pennsylvania, Delaware & West Virginia Star Wars costuming group). So, of course I had to flag him down and ask for a p0hoto.

A press pass to the convention was provided to me gratis from the awesome PR team at Wizard World. For more info on upcoming Wizard World conventions please visit the Wizard World site.

kris q a coll

Kris Holden-Ried is a good-natured actor who is currently known for his portrayal of Dyson on Syfy’s Lost Girl. I was lucky enough to catch his Q&A and later meet him at the 2013 Philadelphia Wizard World Comic Con. Lost Girl recently finished airing its third season. In case you aren’t in the know, Lost Girl is about a succubus who learns that there is a whole world of magic within our own. Kris plays Dyson, a police detective/werewolf. He mentioned that the cast is gearing up to film the fourth season this upcoming week. He just managed to squeeze this con into his schedule. The Q&A was moderated by Rebecca Housel.

Filming was allowed at this Q&A but Hot Donna and I had some technical issues. So while we were only able to film a few snippets of the Q&A, which you can watch below, we also took notes.

A few choices anecdotes:

fan: “Who was the biggest practical joker on set?”
Kris: “I’ve been known to walk onto set without my pants on.”

Kris: “I would definitely do superhero roles.”

Ried loves playing Dyson.

He has great on and off screen relationships with both of the main actresses, Anna Silk and Ksenia Solo (who play Bo & Kenzi).

While he doesn’t feel that he’s been typecast thus far as a werewolf in both Lost Girl & Underworld: Awakening (2012), he wouldn’t take a similar role in the very near future.

He is a fan of Games of Thrones. He’d like to appear on the show if it weren’t for scheduling issues with Lost Girl.


“I like everything from classical to rap”

on the episode “Original Skin”

Hot Donna later told me that her initial thought when watching the show was “This guy (the character of Dyson) walks like a jerk”

“they’ve been inside each other literally…but not the p in the v kind”

Hot Donna and I both purchased photos with Ried at his table on Saturday and Sunday, as he’s fun, friendly and sexy. The first time I mentioned he was hilarious at the panel, which he seemed to like. The next day I complimented him on his hat. He replied that it was his bad hair day. I said “Nah, you don’t have bad hair days” and he said “self inflicted”.

both kris sm

His convention manager, Holly Evans, was personable and even remembered us when we returned for another photo on Sunday. She told him that we were back, it was slightly embarrassing but funny. I said “yeah, we’re here every day” and he said “me too”.

Hot Donna would like to mention how huggable Mr. Ried is and I fully concur.

I turn 30 tomorrow. I’m super excited.

allen 22

As an ASD individual I feel the need to explain the above was (obviously) sarcasm.

I think Lily Allen sums up my feelings perfectly. By the way-don’t put huge expectations on your children when they are young just because they get good grades. That shit will haunt them forever.

Yours in loneliness/mediocrity,
Mary (my real name)

22
by Lily Allen and Greg Kurstin

When she was 22 the future looked bright,
But she’s nearly 30 now and she’s out every night,
I see that look in her face, she’s got that look in her eye,
She’s thinking how did I get here and wondering why,

It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over,
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say,
‘Til the man of her dreams comes along,
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder,
It seems so unlikely in this day and age,

She’s got an alright job but it’s not a career,
Whenever she thinks about it, it brings her to tears,
Cause all she wants is a boyfriend, she gets one night stands,
She’s thinking how did I get here, I’m doing all that I can,

It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over,
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say,
Til the man of her dreams comes along,
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder,
It seems so unlikely in this day and age,

It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over,
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say,
Til the man of her dreams comes along,
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder,
It seems so unlikely in this day and age.

Seven Psychopaths Poster

Seven Psychopaths is a comedic crime thriller written and directed by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). The cast includes Colin Farrell, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Tom Waits. To even lightly explain the plot is to rob you of the experience of the film. The simplest way to give you an idea of the chaos that ensues is to say that it involves a writer, psychopaths, dognapping and murder.

Christopher Walken in Seven Psychopaths

Earlier this year I was finally able to watch the film. I didn’t really know what to expect going in, aside from a stellar cast. I thoroughly enjoyed it but was at a loss to write a review. I merely tweeted the below.

Luckily contributor Hot Donna caught the movie this week. She has decided to share her thoughts on it with us below.

Colin Farrell,  Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken in Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths is Excellente! It makes me want to rewatch Matchstick Men and Choke. I love Sam Rockwell. He’s both hilarious and nuts. It’s the perfect black comedy with action and a fitting ending. Seven Psychopaths is the best movie I’ve seen in years. I laughed and was frightened at the same time.

Last month was the premiere of my father’s TV ad. I wanted to look a bit nice but still casual. I also really wanted to wear some hot ass maroon boots but they have almost no traction and there was a shitload of snow on the ground. So, of course, I stuck with my trusty Kmart cowboy/motorcycle boots, instead.
