Fun Stuff: Supanova Pop Culture Expo

Over the weekend, through Friday to Sunday, I attended the Supanova Pop Culture Expo here in Brisbane. I had a blast! I love seeing all of the cosplayers, spending too much money on all the cool goodies, attending some of the panels, and best of all, meeting some seriously awesome supa-stars! Check out who I was lucky enough to meet!

Evanna Lynch, aka Luna Lovegood from the Harry Potter series

Billy Boyd, aka Pippin from the Lord of the Rings trilogy

Colin Morgan, aka Merlin from BBCs Merlin (my favourite of the weekend, hence two photos!)

Val Kilmer ('nuff said, right?)

Christopher Lloyd (legend!)

Julie Benz, aka Darla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Angel, and Rita from Dexter

I also met Georgina Leonidas, who plays Katie Bell in Harry Potter, but unfortunately I couldn't make her photo op times. Which was a shame, because she was the sweetest. When I got her autograph there was no one else in line, so we chatted for a bit about Harry Potter, Quidditch, Pottermore, how awesome it was to be able to meet Christopher Lloyd, and how cute Colin Morgan is!!

I had a fantastic weekend! Billy Boyd is hilarious, Colin Morgan is so nice and insightful, I couldn't get over how soft spoken Evanna Lynch actually is, Julie Benz is beyond beautiful, and I was so, so starstruck meeting Val Kilmer and Christopher Lloyd!

How did you guys enjoy your weekend? Are there any stars you'd love to meet? Have you ever attended any Cons like this?
