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.

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”.

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.

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.

I turn 30 tomorrow. I’m super excited.

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.

4 out of 5 stars

(Note that clicking through and making a purchase via the links to the dresses located in the review, the Men in Black 3 DVD link or the widgets at the end of the review will yield a commission for missemmamm.com)

Deciding on the Purchase
Last summer the Darque Desires Fetish Wear by Coquette line was released. It is full of super sexy wetlook pieces. Since then I’ve bought quite a few pieces. I originally only bought separates though. I was worried that trying to buy one of the dresses would end in disaster since it can be difficult to find a dress that fits correctly on both the top and bottom of my body. I kept coming back to the Wetlook halter top dress though. It just screams sexy.

After watching Men In Black 3 for the third time late last year I just knew that I had to get this dress. It totally reminds me of the dress that Nicole Sherzinger wears in the opening of the filming (as seen below). Technically her dress may be a bit more reminiscent of the Wetlook dress with molded cups but that one just looks too long for my 5’4″ frame.

Packaging

This awesome dress comes on a plastic hanger from Coquette with a clothing tag (featuring a model in the dress and care instructions) attached that is covered in plastic.

Sizing
This dress comes in sizes small, medium, large and extra large. I usually go with a size large when purchasing a Coquette piece. However after reading the past reviews on this dress about the cups running large I decided to go with a medium. SMichelle’s review was especially helpful.

I wear a size large or 10-12 in women’s clothing with a size 36C bust. That is why I would usually buy a large from Coquette. However I did size down and was super happy that I had done so. This dress in a medium seems to fit more like the Coquette sizing for a Medium/Large, which should fit a size 10-12 with a C cup, 36-40″ bust, 28-32″ waist and 38-40″ hips. Be advised that when you get this you will think, “oh no, this is too small!”. That’s how I felt when I saw it on the hanger. The original, unstretched measurements on the dress prior to my wearing it were 30″ bust, 26″ waist and 28″ hips. It stretches a lot though.

Material & Care Information
This dress is 80% nylon and 20% spandex. The inner tag says that it is to be handwashed only and hung to dry.

Ignore my “model” pose. I was a bit tipsy.


Experience
I ordered this in late December. When it showed up the weekend before New Year’s Eve I just knew that I had to wear it out for that holiday. I hadn’t originally planned to go out for NYE 2012/2013 but I was having a bad couple of weeks prior and it definitely seemed preferable to staying at home being annoyed.

when I tried it on the first day I found it easy to wiggle into. However the night that I was to wear it out I did need a little help getting it on because I was annoyed and drinking which led to being sweating (I know, ew!). Once on the dress stretched to fit wonderfully and accentuate my figure. This dress just pulls on. It doesn’t have any zippers or anything that you need to bother with when putting it on. The halter style neck ties at the back of the neck. I’m not crazy about this because the tie is very thin in the back so I think that it may eventually wear thin. Even with going down a size the bust still doesn’t scream “look at me I have cleavage”, unless I bend around different ways.

I found this dress to be just as comfortable to wear as my other pieces from Coquette’s wetlook line. I was easily able to dance all night long in this dress without becoming uncomfortable.

I haven’t worn this dress since New Year’s Eve just because it’s so flashy. So it is a bit difficult for me to find an occasion to wear it on. However I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel sexy and sassy for the night.

blk dress side

Early this year I went through a bad breakup. As many do I needed to make a big change at that time. In February I had missemmamm.com contributor and senior stylist/teacher, Hot Donna, give me a vibrant new red do. It didn’t last long because I always go back to blonde but I did feel super sexy in it.

Since the night life sucks where I live and yeah I needed some support from my little sister I went to Baltimore to visit her. I wore this outfit out to the new hot club Voltage on a snowy night. It’s run by a manager of the now defunct but once awesome Hammerjacks.

I combined this braless dress from EdenFantasys with an old handcuff necklace, a metallic bracelet, my once favorite but now torn to shreds tights and some super cute booties that I had just gotten. I remarked that pairing the dress with the necklace let people know “what I’m about”. My sister interrupted with “shows people that you lack mystery”, which I found pretty amusing.

We caught up with some old friends that night and had a ton of fun.

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.
