FarBeyondBelieving: RingCon 2012

RingCon 2012

Hi guys! I'm back, hopefully with a lot more blogging.
This is going to be a bit of a photo report, because this basically is what my weekend look like.
Attending a press conference, meeting amazing actors/actresses, people in epic costumes and enjoying my days as a Khaleesi. Because yes, I was dressed as Daenerys Targaryen. I picked an outfit from season 2 and got so many amazing reactions. I think me and my Dothraki girl (Nathalie) had to pose for a lot of photographers. I was glad I picked out the Friday to photograph myself and dress casual. That is where most of these photos come from. 

A bit more about the actors? If you watch Game of Thrones, this convention was heaven. A lot of actors of the show and so many people dressed as characters. I must've seen about 10 girls (including me) dressed as Daenerys, Sansa, Ned and Cathelyn Stark, Joffrey, Jaime and Cersei Lannister and even a White Walker. On the pictures you can see a few more costumes which walked by.

Some highlights of the weekend. The Kiwi pannel with Craig Parker, Mark Ferguson, Lori Dungey and Thomas Robins. Absolutely hilarious!
Billy Boyd singing Pippin's song, 'Edge of Night' of Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, beautiful. And yes that absolutely made me tear up. Especially when Sean Austin followed by reading one of the last scenes of Samwise in the Return of the King book. 
The proposal, and yes this happened, of a lovely man and woman. Three guys dancing on 'Single Ladies' with the text 'the perfect place to put a Ring(c)on'. And Sean Austin bringing the ring. More tears.
Craig Parker being his wonderful self. His energy definitely brought something extra to this convention, what an amazing guy!
Mark Ferguson as Maxi Mark and Lori Dungey as Mini Mark. Lori and Mark were the presenters and made the entire experience so much fun. 
All the costumes and people complimenting us on our costumes. Even Mark Ferguson walked by us and told us we looked great, which absolutely made us blush. Craig Horner told me I had a nice costume before I asked a question. And Jason Mamoa and Iain Glen called me Dany, just as several people walking through the hallway.

I'll leave you guys with this and a list of all the actors who were there with their characters added to that. BYE!

Oh and one more thing.. I'll definitely be going again next year!
