#wizardworld #Toronto Comic Con this weekend

Update: see photos of the show from Saturday and Sunday 

Get those costumes ready for the return of the Wizard World Toronto Comic Con at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Saturday and Sunday (April 14 and 15, 2012). Besides fantastic cosplay the great things about Comic Con are meeting the stars of movies and television shows (photo ops, autographs and Q&As), seeing the writers and artists of anime and comics, and joining fellow fans and fan clubs at the show.
Cosplay fans go up the escalator at the MTCC

Some of the top sessions of the weekend as noted by Wizard World:
• A “Quantum Leap” reunion, with stars Bakula and Stockwell sharing stories about the award-winning sci-fi series
• Witwer, Huntington and Rath show their human sides in discussing the hit Syfy series which already has a huge cult following
• Q&A and unique meet-and-greet opportunity with Ryan, “Seven of Nine” on “Star Trek: Voyager” and standout character actress in “Boston Public” and “Body of Proof”
• WWE® Hall of Famer Edge® won’t throw any chairs – we don’t think – but fans will want to grab one for this larger-than-life superstar’s panel
• Acker, Paul Wesley, Colin Ferguson and Sean Maher dish on their respective careers and roles
• Informative, interactive sessions with superstar artists including Michael Golden, Dave Ross, Mike Deodato Jr., John McCrea, Ken Lashley, Francis Manapul, Dale Keown, Greg Horn and others
• Screening of the groundbreaking 1984 film THE LAST STARFIGHTER, hosted by stars Catherine Mary Stewart and Lance Guest
• Portfolio reviews by Glass House Graphics CEO David Campiti and his professional team, looking for the next big star artists
• Party time... including Wizard World Toronto Drink And Draw, hosted by artist Tommy Castillo, and the Official After Party (locations TBD)
• The popular adult costume contest and fun kids costume contest with great prizes
