FanExpo Canada 2013 Panels Overview

Hello everyone! As we draw near the last hours of August, we finish off the summer holidays month with this last quickie blurb review of all the panels I attended at FanExpo this year. Many of the larger panels actually have their own feature post and should all be linked into the panel titles. Now, without further ado…

Thursday

Lolita Style and Fashion Panel- It was technically my first panel because the Anime AMV panel on Thursday was cancelled. I’ve been dabbling into Lolita fashion lightly and carefully. I wanted to balance the Lolita style with my usual casual every day style and create a look that was really me. I got lot of great tips for rocking the different Lolita aesthetic. Overall, I woul this panel would be really great for beginner Lolita girls.

Friday

Viz Media Panel- About a third of all my manga is published from Viz Media. Series like Ouran High School Host Club, Backstage Prince, Dawn of the Arcana, Demon Love Spell, Happy Marriage, Strobe Edge… the list goes on! If you guys want the details on this panel, please check out my Viz Media panel feature post!

Anime According to AMVs- This was really the first time I went to an AMVs themed panel and it sure made up for the one that was cancelled the day before. It was just a blast! It’s great to sit in a room with a bunch of people who love the same shows and the same characters as you. You learn about some new animes and get to laugh at some hilarious music videos as well!

Pro Author Panel – Epic World Building & Magic- A panel featuring Leslie Young, A.M. Dellamonica, Violette Malan and Linda Poitevin, they were all such wonderful and witty speakers. Ms. Malan had to be my favourite panelist. She gave such great advice and I was in awe at how knowledgeable she was.

Saturday

Comic Book Law – What Creators Need to Know- A really information and professional panel. It’s a basic and simple break-down of copyright, trademark and all the legal issues that come with your ownership of your characters, ideas, and so on.

Once Upon a Time Premiere Screening @ FanExpo Canada 2013

OUAT-Wonderland-Title-Card

Hey guys! I had the amazing opportunity to attend the season premiere preview twenty minute screening of Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. It begins with Alice, stuck in an insane asylum. Despite her past adventures in Wonderland and the proof she’s brought back for her father, he disbelieves her stories and sends her into a medical facility. After the death of her beloved Genie Cyrus, she’s set on forgetting everything about Wonderland in order to forget the pain and loss that came after. However, when the White Rabbit and the Knave of Hearts come bringing news of Cyrus’ survival, Alice is ready to get back into the game in search for her true love.

If you guys are fans of Alice in Wonderland, as I am, you’ll love the series. The special effects are really well done, the art direction for Wonderland is really vibrant and detailed from what I’ve seen for far. The first episode airs on October 10 so be on the lookout for that soon!
