Your PopCulteer had a blast at ShockaCon last Saturday. Due to real-life intrusions I was only able to make it to one day of the extremely fun three-day event, but I could tell that the entire event was a success. I hosted the “40 Years of Star Wars Toys” panel with Mark Wolfe and Lee Harrah, and played Ed McMahon to Mrs. PopCulteer, Mel Larch as she hosted Walking Dead Trivia. That was right after her stint moderating the panel with Walking Dead actors Lew Temple, Josh Turner and Scott Lane.
Unfortunately, I was having so much fun that I didn’t take many photos. And many of the photos I did take did not come out well because I was trying out a new camera that turned out to be a bit of a dud. I did get a decent shot of the Staypuft Marshmallow Man, who greeted visitors, courtesy of Ghostbusters WV Division. Most of the stuff I shot inside came out fuzzy.
Despite the camera glitches, we do have some images to bring you. I want to thank Mike Winland and Penny Maple and the whole ShockaCon crew for putting on another great show. We’ll do it again next year, and this time I’ll bring the good camera.
