I know you've got the other "thread" a happenin' now, but just on the convention.
Can I ask, "Is it Comicon? Or my daughter just asked "Or is it SuperNova?"
My daughter a month or so ago, went to Adelaide for a two-day event of this, with her god-mother. Well actually being a female, would that make her a Goddess-mother? Anyway, the two of them are pretty close and they had the most wonderful and amazing time.
My daughter scored heaps of photos and saw loads of people dressed up in 'character dress'. She scored autograph and photo of Dean O'Gorman (some bearded hippy looking dude who played some character in The Hobbit - not bilbo or frodo (whoops, wrong movie for Frodo) - um, but Killy or Filly (Kili or Fili - you know the little people) We are allowed to call them little people, aren't we? I guess Hobbits is another name for them. Ok, they're dwarves; not hobbits, but they do have hairy feet.
I'm not sure, it might even have been Smeagol (Gollum) - cause when she came home, she kept referring to me as "My precious".
Was it something like that?
