Last weekend was Mini MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, and several notable “Buffy” stars were there. Charisma “Cordelia” Carpenter, Emma “Anya” Caulfield, Amber “Tara” Benson, and Adam “Warren” Busch. I was going to tell you about the Buffy Q&A panel they gave, but Phil of NeatEntertainment.com (and the panel moderator) just transcribed the whole thing, so I’ll just send you there. Many of the photos on that page are from my Flickr set of the whole con.
The con was a lot of fun, if a bit smaller than I expected. The MegaCon folks planned this mini version a few years ago and made commitments just before the economy tanked, but they went ahead with it anyway. It was roughly half the size of their usual springtime con, which drew 32,000 people last March.
The big guests were supposed to be three stars from the Twilight series, but shooting conflicts forced them all to cancel. Still, the Buffy panel had to move to a bigger room, then had to connect the new room to the original room to make an area big enough for the crowds. You still got it, guys.
Also met Sylvester McCoy, the seventh Doctor. And Lisa Loring, “Wednesday” from The Addams Family. And a lot more, plus all the fanciful folks who populate the cons. Check my Flickr set for tons of pics and more details.
