Dragon Con Tales: Friday

Chances are this Labor Day weekend, you either spent the time lounging at Lake Lanier or stuck in Midtown traffic.

If you were the latter, then I know you got to see the assortment of cosplayers and visitors attending this year’s Dragon Con.
Drinker Bell & Tinker Bell
A variety of events and panels were scheduled for Friday which began for the Giant King and I with an amazing 1-on-1 interview with novelist Chris Paolini.
Rick & Summer Gone Give It to Ya!

We then got to relive our childhoods by attending the Spongebob Squarepants Panel with voice actor: Tom Kenny. As an avid Spongebob fan, it was a dream come true to hear Mr. Kenny physically jump between his normal voice and Spongebob’s.

Tom Kenny!!!!

Towards the end of the panel, a Q&A session took place where audience members of all ages were able to asked Mr. Kenny various questions on his career and comedic roots.

Answering Questions

I myself was able to ask him a question regarding ways in which aspiring voice actors and actresses can practice or even find ways to begin in the industry. (I gotchu ATL actors.)

His response was flawless: “Just hear everything and listen; you’re always one audition away from changing your life”. He also said to check out: http://iwanttobeavoiceactor.com so take his advice!

Later on, the Giant King entered into the “Lord & Ladies Coiffure Contest” hosted by the Alternate History Track. The contest focused on best types of hair which ranged from mustaches and beards, to amazingly styled “head-hair” designs.

Alternate History Track

The Giant King ended up winning 2nd place in the “Best-Styled” Head Hair category. The Gnome Queen was so proud.

Ariel Pinup

Towards the end of the evening, I entered Talloolah Love’s Pinups by the Pool Contest which featured a lovely group of pinups and cosplayers.

Wonder Woman Pinup

I actually made it into the “Stage” Round of the contest with my amazing “Drinker Bell” cosplay costume. For those of you who don’t know, Drinker Bell is Tinker Bell’s rave-loving cousin.

The entire day was a solid success and I knew that the remaining weekend would be even better.
