Fan Expo 2015



[spacer color=”006CB7″ style=”2″]

This is it, the big one: Fan Expo, running from Thursday September 3rd to Sunday the 6th, it’s Canada’s largest geek and fandom convention. Bringing the worlds of comics, science fiction, fantasy, horror, anime and gaming to Toronto, this is Canada’s very own version of San Diego Comic-Con. While we don’t usually get the huge industry announcements that are common place at SDCC or even New York City Comic Con, Fan Expo does land some pretty big names from around the geekverse. Special guests include Christian Slater, Gillian Anderson, Mads Mikelessen as well as cast members from The Walking Dead, Harry Potter, Star Trek, and Doctor Who. But conventions aren’t just about the stars, Fan Expo plays host community groups, artists, performers, vendors and so much more. This year expect to see international Star Wars costuming group The 501st Legion, the Klingon World Summit, The Doctor Who Society of Canada, The Toronto Stempunk Society and more. Activities include exclusive screenings, live theatre, Q&A panels with content creators & professionals like world famous coplsayer Yaya Han and horror legend George A. Romero, hands-on workshops for special FX make-up, prop design and comic illustration. Also, don’t miss out on game tournaments (video-, board-, role-playing- and every other type of game in between). There shopping, demos, give-aways and even geek sped-dating. PHEW! With so much to see and do over the weekend, we at Geektropolis have put together a a guide to some of the highlights we think are worth checking out at Fan Expo.
