Edmonton Expo 2013 – BACK! And BIGGER BETTER THAN EVER!
Edmonton’s show for everything pop culture returned bigger and better than ever with more exhibitors artists writers performers packing the weekend. The fans did not disappoint as cosplay was taken to the next level, and who better to share the experience than OH! Jessica Nigri who appeared on behalf of the fine folks at Cherry Sauce Clothing!!
The panels were the main feature. JPHiP caught up with the festivities on Sunday and we were blown away. First we had cult hero Jon Heder of Napoleon Dynamite fame. He admitted that he felt right at home at conventions such as Edmonton Expo. “I love geeky stuff,” he said imitating his character. The Zelda fan entertained the crowd with his dance moves and interpretation of what it would be like if he was cast as Batman’s sidekick Robin.
