ALSO: Matt Smith revealed at the panel tonight that they actually filmed Eleven’s scenes in Deep Breath when they were still in production for the Christmas special - he filmed it just before he did his regeneration.
I went with my friend Matt, and we dressed up as Will Graham and Alana Bloom, complete with a flower crown - I only saw one other Fannibal cosplay (it was a Matthew Brown cosplay, and he smiled at us). Very few people recognized what we were cosplaying as, but there were a few - two artists in Artist Alley (both of whom became VERY excited when we came over to buy prints) and a group of people in Hannibal shirts
There was a MASSIVE Doctor Who presence this year (I mean, it was probably because of the panel, but y’know). I think I saw a cosplay of every single Doctor and every single new era companion several times over. I also saw a few Daleks, a Cyberman and a Weeping Angel!
The Doctor Who Society of Canada brought in some Daleks that spoke and blew a gust of air at you after yelling ‘EXTERMINATE!’
Toronto Batman was there and was singing the national anthem over in the food area
There were loads of really cool cosplays - I always manage to find a really great Community one!
THE DOCTOR WHO PANEL WAS AWESOME. Matt and Arthur were HILARIOUS, answered a lot of questions from kids, sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to a little girl and got in a few jabs at Kazza as she had to cancel last minute - Matt mentioned how she “is from another planet” and at one point they compared her face to a paper plate. Also, in true Karen and the Babes fashion, THERE WAS SINGING.
I bought some great stuff - this FANTASTIC print of the Doctor and Amy (which I am super emo about tbh), a Greendale Babies postcard print, this AMAZING Hannibal print, a little baggie of Pushing Daisies buttons and some Hannibal buttons!
