The festival/convention takes over the Marriott DTC and Hilton Garden Inn in Denver. Everywhere you look you see people in costumes, booths set up by model-makers, make-up artists, authors, fan groups, and toy sellers, artwork, special celebrity guests, and all manner of experts in the fields of sci-fi, horror, and comics. There are tons of films screening, events and panels. There is nothing I can say to do justice to the girth of activities that take place over the two and a half days it runs. This year it was April 16-18. And I only attended one day (Saturday). Please check out the website and seriously consider attending next year. I think you'll truly enjoy it.
I went hoping to do some interviews, but the celebrity guest schedules were so packed, it was just insane. And they all seemed so happy to be participating and interacting with fans. I was able to get portroids of many of the guests (and even got to interact with a bunch who I didn't photograph).
Here are the special guests I met and portroided:
Those were all the portroids I took. I did get a few photos of some of the general environment:
|A victorious Rogues Gallery|
|I think this is a Dr. Who something or other|
|Lost In Space robots|
|Autograph lines (at a light time)|
|The Academy of Sorcery|
|Some sort of battle scene (Tri-Wizard Tournament?)|
|Balcony decorating contest|
|Yet more balconies|
|The line for Summer Glau|
|The line for Summer Glau (continued)|
I'd like to thank the staff at Starfest, as they were all very accomodating and friendly and helpful. It was a great experience all around. I can't wait for next year's!!
See you there!
