This weekend, we went to Lexington ComicCon and I could not have been happier? Why? Becuase I was able to meet Lee Majors and get his signature! This was exciting for me because my name came from an episode of the Six Million Dollar Man. In the episode “Taneha” he chased a wild cougar (the namesake) and my mother saw this episode shortly before I was born. She like the name, and chose it for me (though misremembering the exact spelling). I was able to tell Lee about my story and he told me I had a nice name 🙂 total fangirl moment! This is one picture that I am definitely printing out!
In addition to this, Kaleya was able to meet the author of My Little Pony (MLP), Christina Rice. Kaleya is a big fan of MLP. I’ve watched several episodes with her and find it absolutely charming. Kaleya told me I’m like the pony Twilight because Twilight likes to read, does family history, is organized, and loves the color purple. Check, check, check, and check! Christina is a librarian at the Los Angeles Public Library and was very sweet and kind to talk to. She signed an MLP book for Kaleya too.
Kalonji was eager to meet Brian O’Hallaran and Marilyn Ghigliotti – stars of Kevin Smith’s movie Clerks. Kalonji loves their roles in the movie and Brian’s character Dante’s signature line “I’m not even supposed to be here today.” They were very personable and even took a joint picture with Kalonji. My personal favorite movie of Kevin Smith’s is Dogma so I’d love to meet Kevin himself one day.
On top of this, there we so many great cosplayers! We took many pictures. We also joined friends there for the day so that made it even more enjoyable.
StayPuft and a Ghostbuster
We took many more pictures than I can put here so you can see them online in our photo album. This was by far the largest comic convention we’ve been to and it was so cool! Next year, I want to dress up. I need to start working on plans now…
