We’ve had a few smaller gatherings so far, but fan convention season in southern Ontario really kicks off with
Toronto ComiCon, which took place this year from March 20th through the 22nd. Put on by the same organisation that hosts the massive end-of-summer blowout FanExpo, Canada’s largest con and currently North America’s third largest, the annual March event boasts an amazing guest list, stellar exhibitors and amazing cosplayers ranging from first-timers to top-of-the-biz pros. On the guest docket this year were the likes of Karen Gillan ( Doctor Who), Chad Coleman ( The Walking Dead), Shannon Doherty ( Charmed), Amber Benson ( Buffy), J. August Richards ( Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Terry Farrell ( Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), as well as multiple cast members from shows such as Bitten, Defiance and Orphan Black.
And there were the cosplayers…the Toronto scene brought its A-game, as photos below demonstrate…
