It’s been an exciting weekend thus far. One of my main events was attending WonderCon in Anaheim.
The event was held at The Anaheim Convention Center, which is right beside DISNEYLAND!!
Last time I was at this place was for an even called NAMM (It’s a musicians event)
Here’s my crew! Lisa Biggs (girl in middle with pink shirt) is a well known voiceover actress (she’s even voiced on The Simpsons!) She was talking on a panel with other renowned voice artists, teaching people about the world of voice (and mainly animation voice, which is what they do)
We had to pick up our tickets down in the bunks of the building!
The panel was a smashing success. The room was packed, and as always- I learnt a ton listening to the vets tell their stories and tips and tricks.
People were all dressed up, all over the place. The gal on the left wouldn’t let me take her picture until she got out her waitress pen and paper, so she was in character!! lol
Once the panel was done, a huge slew of people went to the front for autographs.
This is Rob Paulsen. Voice actor on the panel..
Here are a few of the characters he’s voiced over the years!!!
If I wasn’t in VO, I don’t know if I ever would have gone to WonderCon (not really my thing since I don’t watch anime, cartoons, etc) But I’ve fully embraced it and hope one day I am on a panel!!!
In other news this weekend, I ran a 5km in Redondo Beach..
I took my flip cam and filmed it for ya!!
The mileage completely messed me up!! It’s a 5km, but they put up MILE markers??? I thought, DAMN, I am getting SLOW! It was kinda funny though cause I thought I had 2.5km left to run and within a couple minutes I was done. I had fun, but I was so messed up with the distance by the MILE markers, in a 5KM race!!!
How about those crazy shoes I caught a glimpse of? They are “Kangaroo Jumps”. They apparently do something more than just look ridiculous! lol
Ohhh, Kangaroo Jump classes! ha, anyone ever try these things?
Well, we are off to Hollywood this morning. Mike is filming a performance, I am going to help out.
I hope you had a fun-filled St. Patricks Day! Talk to you soooooooooooooon!
