MONSTROUS PARTY WIN – WIZARD WORLD!!!
Wizard World put on a massive Media Welcome Party shin-dig in Madison 5 Feb. Cosplay, interviews, celebs, photo-ops! Party ‘On Wisconsin!’ To celebrate the launch of Wizard World Madison 2015, they held the party at High Noon Saloon, Brink Lounge and Brass Ring (3 venues in the same building). They hosted with fab eats, great locale… SO fun! (they had me at ‘Wizard World’ and ‘Spotted Cow on tap’)
Lou Ferrigno, Jason David Frank (JDF) and the Hobbit’s William Kircher were on hand for interviews with local radio anchors, press interviews and photo ops. Found out Lou loved Hulk comics growing up and his make-up for the TV show took 3 hours to put on!!! Another tid-bit was that JDF has tattoos over 70% of his body and showed us his skin to prove it…. Almost had to call 911 for the screaming ladies in the front when he lifted his shirt! Whew, I wouldn’t have been surprised if one had actually fainted… jk William Kircher is TOTALLY hilarious! Great guy!
Wisconsin is gettin’ excited for the con this weekend! (Madison didn’t get it’s national party rep for nothing) Hype was everywhere as was cosplay galore. Refreshing to see such awesome unique costumes like the Agent Carters, steampunk, retro comics, comic costumes, Dr. Who, even active duty Army guys were there showing off their spiffy duds! (smile) Everyone was there – even saw an incognito IBOT! Freakshow, host of ‘Bordello of Horror’ was also there shooting footage for his CW57 Saturday night show and wowing the crowd with his costume. Luv’d his makeup! I had forgotten how accepting, eclectic and embracing Madison was.
Wizard World – great choice to have the new Wisconsin con here! We’re amazed…excited…pumped for Wizard World Madison madness!!!
