Whatever you want, I go above and beyond.  
++ Charisma Carpenter is coming to Wizard World Con in my city! I was already planning on attending at least one of the days during this convention, however this has me even more tempted. Now only if Eliza Dushku would also be listed that would be even better. There aren't that many guests lined up at the moment, so I'm assuming that more will be trickling in the sooner the date approaches. I'm also tempted on attending an anime con later this year (also in my city) because one of the cast of Critical Role is scheduled to be attending. In fact, some of them have been attending that convention for some years now, and because I have just gotten into the series I'm really excited about this prospect that they'll continue coming here.

++ Also, speaking of Eliza Dushku, not only is she going to be a regular on Bull (CBS), she is also developing an adaptation of The Black Company and is going to be playing a dark sorceress. Look at my girl getting those regular and recurring roles on television! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

++ Chloe Bennet talks about her Chinese heritage in a new interview. I absolutely adore her, and one of the things I've always appreciated and admired is how open she is with discussing these particular issues, from the experiences she's had with racism along with addressing the problems within the industry itself, calling out the limited role opportunities for Asian-Americans and the constant whitewashing that continues to happen. Agents of Shield might not always be perfect, but it has shaped and created her character, Daisy Johnson, around her heritage which became a vital part of her arc especially in the second season where she started discovering and accepting parts of who she is, both as an Inhuman and where she comes from, which is the kind of representation we need more of, imho. I love that Chloe has not only been given this opportunity that is unfortunately rare but also been using this platform to speak out on these issues, and that she continues to do so in the future. ❤

Assuming that she doesn't reschedule the weekend of, I'm honestly tempted to go to her panel during this convention, and internally debating on whether to get an autograph.

Oh I adore Chloe Bennet ♥

Charisma Carpenter attended the Wizard World con that I attended. :)

Nice to see Eliza in a different role.

Love Charisma and Chloe, too, of course.

I'm definitely here for her playing a dark sorceress. I'm not familiar with the book series so I'm intrigued.

I'm not familiar with it either, other than what I've read on TV Tropes. I have the compilation Chronicles of the Black Company, signed by Glen Cook, from the last World Fantasy Convention, but haven't read it yet.

I'm so glad Eliza got not one, but two new big roles. I feel like I haven't seen her in ages. The last time probably was my Dollhouse rewatch.

Chloe love! <3

Yeah, I feel like, aside from a few things, Eliza hasn't been nearly in the spotlight enough at least in things I'm aware of. So I'm incredibly overjoyed that she is going to be doing two major things. :)

I don't know if you've been to WW cons before, but just keep in mind that they are VERY expensive. I hope you can go and meet Charisma!
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 29th, 2017 08:27 pm (UTC)
Oh believe me, I'm fully aware of how expensive conventions can be. I've been to several in the past, with Dragon*Con being the biggest one I've ever attended.

Yasss all the cons! Both sound super fun, especially if you can see some people you're really into. Sorry if I missed it in other posts but will you be dressing up?

I've always wanted to cosplay, unfortunately I don't have much time to prepare and it's about making things way early in advance. I'll probably just be wearing a fannish shirt of some kind.

I met Charisma Carpenter. SHE IS SUCH A SWEETHEART! I hope you enjoy your meeting with her.!
Renéerogueslayer452 on May 2nd, 2017 01:05 am (UTC)
I'm not entirely certain I'll get a chance to meet her, contemplating on whether I should get an autograph or just see her on a panel, because honestly I don't know what I would say if I were just to get an autograph. And I've done this before with other actors in the past, but this one is even more intimidating! Ah! But either way the prospect of being blessed with her presence is just enough. So we'll see what happens. I have some time before the convention and haven't even gotten tickets yet (mainly because the guest list isn't even complete, there's only a few people scheduled so I'm waiting to see who else appears).

Omg, meeting Charisma would be awesome.

I couldn't get into Bull, but The Black Company sounds interesting.

I see the Chinese now that it's been pointed out, but I really thought Chloe Bennet was part Native American to begin with.
