It’s that time of the year again! Or it was…
Purgatory Con was in Düsseldorf on the weekend of June 2nd and 3rd, and of course, we went, just like we did the last three years! We haven’t fully recovered yet, so we’re still a bit exhausted, a bit sore and a bit hoarse, but still, it was awesome!
We saw a lot less of the Con this year, because we were part of the staff again, and very busy. But what we did see was a lot of fun, so we’re just going to comment on that.
I don’t even know where to start… so let’s start with what’s consistent: Gil McKinney (Henry Winchester) as MC. He did an awesome job! And he sang for us again, which was amazing.
The line-up was incredible as well! There was Ty Olsson (Benny), who, judging by the line at his autograph session, must have been a lot of fun to watch. Sadly, we only saw the last 3 minutes of one of his panels.
The photo ops wit DJ Qualls looked like a lot of fun, so seems like an awesome dude.
Alex Barima (Drexel) was a last-minute announcement, and very fun at the karaoke party, which was the only time we saw him. I hope he comes back so we can watch his panels.
Mark Pellegrino (Lucifer) was probably the most wanted star of the weekend, cause I gave out so many autograph tickets for him that I’m not sure I ever want to hear his name again… sorry, Mark.
Mark Sheppard (Crowley) was… well, Mark Sheppard. He seems to have been in a good mood, though, cause there were a lot of photo ops where he participated in the crazy things people come up with and seemed to have fun.
Alaina Huffman (Abaddon) came with two of her children, and they were really cute – and flexible! Cartwheeling and what not! She’s also incredibly pretty, and very funny.
Julian Richings (Death) was probably the biggest surprise of the weekend. He was funny, insanely energetic, and nice.
And last but not least, Felicia Day (Charlie)! We made a little happy dance when she was announced, and we were not disappointed in the least. She’s incredibly smart, awesome, funny, beautiful andandand…. just awesome!
Oh, and I almost forgot (kidding) – Baby! Someone actually came with Baby, and they let people take pictures with it and everything, so thank you, amazing people!
And here’s how our photo ops turned out *drumroll*
With Julian Richings:
And Felicia Day:
I think these are our the best ones we took as of yet 😀
