JD was so gracious, he personally introduced me to Tonya Crowe and Larry Drake. This was Tonya's first convention ever! And Larry Drake, can you say Darkman and Dr. Giggles? Tonya and Larry are such genuine people. It was fun to hear their experiences with making the movie.You could tell they were glad to be there and meet the fans. Chris Rowe was there from VCI Entertainment promoting the movie, another super nice guy. We all talked about the movie for a while and I made sure to get all their autographs (watch for a separate post on this) before I donned the Bubba costume. I made some improvements to the costume itself to be more screen accurate (also separate post to come). All in all the costume was well received and it was amazing to see so many fellow fans that appreciate this movie as I do. I had a great time posing for pictures with everyone. During the Q&A panel, JD even asked me to stand near the stage in costume. What an honor. Afterward he invited me to dinner with the cast. How could I say no to that?
What a lasting experience I will never forget. Needless to say, I had THE BEST time. I sure hope Larry and Tonya decide to do more conventions.
On with the pics...
