SDCC 2014 has been amazing, but I wanted to share something particularly awesome and silly that happened last night at the Geek & Sundry party.
Disclaimer - some of it is a bit blurry because it took so long to get my Long Island Iced Tea that I chugged the whole thing in 3 minutes so I could go onto the dance floor
Anyways, I’d been dancing for maybe a half hour, very tipsy and melting in my heavy cotton Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite) cosplay costume when i find myself in a dance circle across from these two guys who look oddly familiar.
Did I meet them at a panel earlier? Meet them earlier tonight? Are they actually guys I know from college?
Nope, it’s Kyle Walters (Peter Pan) and Brennan Murray (Michael Darling) from The New Adventures of Peter and Wendy.
Here’s where I get a bit blurry. I somehow introduced myself and told them how awesome the show is, and I think I told Kyle that he was fantastic, but a dick. (Obviously I meant Peter, not him personally, but I don’t think I said as much) And that he made me cry with the season finale. He took it in stride. I think.
(Which is kinda weird, cause I don’t think I did. Cry, I mean. Not that it wasn’t an emotional episode, but I just don’t cry too easily. It makes Game of Thrones way easier. So I don’t know why I said that but I remember saying it.)
Anyways, they were both super nice and introduced me to the show’s writer Shawn, who introduced me to someone else from the show. (I’m so sorry, I didn’t catch your name!) I told Shawn he was brilliant, and he hugged me and apologized for making me cry. (Again, I feel oddly guilty about that now, since I didn’t.)
So, for fans of the show, in case you were wondering - In real life, Kyle and Brennan dance like they’re in character. Just picture how Michael and Peter would dance in a club and you’ve got it.
And to Kyle, Brennan, Shawn, and person-whose-name-I-can’t-remember, if you should happen to see this (and if you remember the girl in the Bioshock Infinite cosplay) - You guys rock. Keep being awesome. :D
