FanExpo is a place where you can let your inner geek out. It’s not all “nerdy” stuff, you can meet the normal actors that all the ladies think is good looking. It’s just a great big room of fun and awesome things.
My sister, boyfriend and I went to FanExpo yesterday. You can get a weekend pass or day passes (Thurs-Sun) in case you only wanted to go to one day, which is what we did.
We woke up nice a early and made our way there. The best part is we missed the first bus to get to Toronto, I live 30 mins away so it’s not that big of a deal so we just waited for the next one. When we got there it was crazy, the location was the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, which is located right beside the Sky Dome, the CN Tower and the Air Canada Centre! There was a million things going on at once but it made it fun.
We found where you go in if you bought tickets online and went on with our day. We got our green wrist bands for Saturday and waited in line for them to open the doors. When you walk in you are overwhelmed with everything, every where you look there is something to buy, do or see. My boyfriend’s A.D.D was for sure going off like crazy. We started by walking around and just seeing everything, we looked to see where the photos were being taken just so we knew where we were going, then went to go adventure.
There was two buildings out of this place that took us all up, the first building was called the North Building which had all the places where you meet everyone. We went over to the South Building which has all the free stuff and most of the things you would want to buy. At this point my sister and I split up because she needed to leave in order to go get her picture done with the guy who plays in Arrow, Stephen Amell. My boyfriend and I had lots of time before we met the person who picked which I will tell you later.
When we were walking around we found the Doctor Who society which is what my boyfriend and I love (hint, hint). We found the Daleks, the guy who does their voices and the Tardis!
I didn’t take very many pictures but it was mostly Doctor Who stuff I took. But lets get to the most exciting part of FanExpo, you can meet anyone who comes to this expo, you can look online before hand to see who’s going and get tickets to meet them, get autographs, and take a picture with them of course. As I said before my boyfriend and I love Doctor Who, best show going on. Matt Smith, the 11th doctor, was there and we got tickets to get a picture with him.
You only get about 7 seconds with him because the line was massive to take the picture but it’s worth it. My boyfriend and I were so happy to meet him, he is such an awesome guy. Next year or even look in your city to see if they’re coming to you. It’s a little bit on the expensive side but once again, worth it.
We each got our own little gifts for ourselves and other people but I’m not going to post that. Check it out!
