So, this V-Day weekend I made the drive to Dallas for Dallas Fan Days, a smaller con at the Irving Convention Center. The guest lineup was quite impressive…

On the Panel front, I managed to attend Robbie Amell’s panel where I live tweeted. Below are a few highlights from Robbie, Stephen and Barrowman!

We all know John Barrowman’s panels are epic. Here is one of the most beautiful, heartfelt moments. I am particularly touched that my wonderful friend, Laura (@nerdfitter) was able to interpret this moment starting at 1:05:43! <3 You are magical John!

Conventions are fun and a great way for nerds to share passions, creativity and talents, and it’s panel moments like these that are just the cherry on top to a wonderful sundae! I am looking forward to Dallas Comic Con in June!
