With MegaCon being about four months away, time is flying already, I have to admit I was starting to get a little worried because we weren’t getting the same amount of guest announcements as we were last year. By this time last year, there were much more guest announcements and I was pretty excited. At this point my excitement is kind of wavering a bit even with the first major celebrity guest announcements.
Known for his work as Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones and more recently for his work as Aquaman in DC’s Justice League and the upcoming Aquaman movie, the first major celebrity guest was none other than Jason Momoa
I have to say that this had me pretty excited because while we were promised Game of Thrones guests in the past, they never really delivered and were cancelled last minute. I know that Jason Momoa was only on Game of Thrones for one season, but everyone who watches Game of Thrones knows who he is. I will definitely be getting in line for his autograph and have already decided that he will be my first photo-op. I will be taking on the same challenge I took on last year which was to wear a different shirt with each photo-op and I already have a shirt picked out already.
The next announcement came a couple of days ago and is one that will please many Dr. Who fans. Not only was she the Tenth Doctor’s regular companion, but she’s had her own sketch comedies and had a recurring role on the office. She now voices Magica De Spell in the reboot of Duck Tales. This next celebrity spot belongs to Catherine Tate.
So I’m not a Dr. Who fan…not an office fan…and haven’t seen anything else that she’s been in so this is going to be a skip for me. As always though I’m excited for the people who know who she is and are eagerly awaiting to meet her as it should be an awesome experience as it usually is with celebrity guests.
Just announced today, is basically a blast from my past and a blast from anyone who’s around my age’s past. I remember rushing home every day after school to watch the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers so it was kind of surprising to see that Amy Jo Johnson was announced.
I will admit that I’m not super excited since after the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, she did a couple of shows here and there and not anything major. I will still most likely stop by her booth for an autograph and a selfie though because the inner child in me kind of demands it.
The MegaCon Chair!
I figured I would give you a little inside look into what my life is like basically in the months before MegaCon and how I prepare. So as you can see, I take my normal office char and turn it into a dumping spot for everything that I’m taking with me to MegaCon. Right now it’s a little bare, but I’m hoping that it’ll start filling up soon as more guests are announced. It’s not like I need this chair for anything else right? So far I have most of my essentials for MegaCon which are a backpack to hold all of my stuff, a Game of Thrones season one poster for Jason Momoa to sign and a Game of Thrones t-shirt. As the list grows for celebrity guests so will the amount of items on this chair. Which reminds me I have to get a Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers shirt now.
That’s it for now, but rest assured that when more guest announcement’s come I will try to keep up with them as much as possible and keep you up to date. If you’re going to MegaCon make sure to drop me a line in the comments section below and let me know if you’re excited to meet any of the guests announced so far.
