Hal-Con 2012 Have Yourself a Gothic/Geeky Little Christmas

Hal-Con 2012 Have Yourself a Gothic/Geeky Little Christmas

Just a reminder about Have Yourself a Gothic/Geeky Little Christmas this weekend! That is where I will be! ~ Suzie

The one thing I regret in 2011 is I did not get to go to Have Yourself a Gothic/Geeky Little Christmas. I was on the verge of being hospitalized for pneumonia and I was so mad! This was the closest thing to a Suzie-style Christmas I was ever going to get and I could not go.

When I saw their booth at Hal-Con I had to tell them how excited I was to go this year and they happily gave me all the details.

I bought my 2 for 1 ticket to the show which you can also get at Fashionably Dead until November 1 but they have a limited quantity so get yours now!

Hal-Con 2012 Have Yourself a Gothic/Geeky Little Christmas

First prize at the show is this Part 1 and Part 2 of Niyan Arts Beowulf panels full sized low numbered exclusive series Giclee reproduction. Five feet of paintings across your wall! What is a Viking without his berserker style helm and drinking horn though? They are adding those too! Total retail value of 1st prize is approximately $1500.

I hope to cover the show for Hexed as well the first weekend in December. The event will be the Halifax Forum Venue Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm and on Sunday from 11am to 6 pm. If you see me, come say hi!

Paranormal Pick of the Week: Labyrinth Miniseries on Showcase

Many of our shows are returning post-US Thanksgiving this week, but what has really caught my eye is the 2-part miniseries Labyrinth that is airing on Showcase, and with an Arthurian connection and 2 women's lives connecting through history I felt that was just enough to sneak it in as this weeks Paranormal Pick of of the Week:

Labyrinth (Miniseries)
Friday November 30, 2012 at 10pm ET on Showcase

It's based on the book by Kate Mosse, and here is a further description: "Set between modern day France and 13th century Carcassonne, two women's lives intertwine through history. Modern-day archaeologist Alice Tanner discovers skeletal remains and a labyrinth-engraved ring in a cave, attracting the attention of unscrupulous individuals. In 1209, newly married Alaïs Pelletier du Mas protects three sacred books that reveal a world-altering secret."

Labyrinth (2012 Miniseries) stars Jessica Brown Findlay as Alaïs Pelletier du Mas and Vanessa Kirbyas Alice Tanner; John Hurt (Merlin, Alien), Tom Felton (Harry Potter series), Tony Curran, John Lynch and Sebastian Stan.

Also Awesome
  • The return of Supernatural, Vampire Diaries and Beauty and the Beast.  Woohoo!

Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Ep 5 & 6

It's Friday which means it's time for more Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome webisodes over at Machinima Prime.  Time to see what that crazy young Adama is up to!  Here are Episodes 5 and 6.

The series is a prequel to Battlestar: Galactica and follow a young William Adama as a rookie pilot.

I know I've said it before but I'm so happy we can view it online here in Canada, and it is pretty with all great effects.  I'll be curious to see how it continues to unfold.

Paranormal Pick of the Week: Camelot and The Tempest on TCM Canada

While our friends south of the boarder are going to be chomping on turkey and shopping Black Friday deals, it's a regular week up here in Canada with the exception of having new TV episodes to enjoy slashed by half or more. But have no fear as there is always something to watch, and for this weeks Paranormal Pick of the Week we can enjoy movies on the small screen care of TCM Canada:

Camelot (1967)
Friday November 23, 2012 at 11PM ET on TCM Canada
Arthurian musical starring Vanessa Redgrave, Richard Harris and Franco Nero, directed by Joshua Logan. I thought I had seen most Arthurian films, but ran across this musical a few years ago and it was such a treat. It's amazing to see the 60's free-spirtedness eek into a classic love story, and you can't beat the cast of Richard Harris as Arthur, Vanessa Redgrave as Guenevere and Franco Nero (who is married to Vanessa Redgrave) and Lancelot. It's a beautiful film, romantic and whimsical, and it's a treat to see it being shown on TV.  If you want to see a snippet, IMDb has a sweet trailer, complete with singing.  Yes, there is singing!

The Tempest (1979)
Friday November 23, 2012 at 11PM ET on on TCM Canada
I find this to be one of the Shakespearean plays I'm continually dawn to for the mystical elements, but still have almost zero understanding of and therefore am always curious about seeing more versions. This one is from 1979, is directed by Derek Jarman and stars Peter Bull, David Meyer Neil Cunningham, Heathcote Williams and Toyah Willcox. This version looks stunning and is described as "An experimental and anachronistic adaptation of William Shakespeare's play which casts the mad Prospero as a struggling artist desperate to transform his bleak world into something more spriritually satisfying." that's enough to get me to check it out!

Also Awesome
Although it's a quiet week for most of our shows due to the US holiday there are a few that are still airing new episodes this week:
  • Mon Nov 19, 2012: New episodes of Falling Skies and Primeval: New World on Space
  • Fri Nov 23, 2012: New episode of Haven on Showcase, which should bring the Canada and US schedules into alignment
  • Sun Nov 25, 2012: New episodes of 666 Park Avenue and The Walking Dead

2013 People's Choice Awards Nominations

It official feels like we are getting close to the end of the year when award nomination announcements start hitting us left, right and centre. One of the awards I always look forward to hearing the announcement for is the People's Choice Awards here as it's truly a touchstone of what people are loving RIGHT NOW.  And I'm happy to see that many of the TV shows we discuss here on Hexed have made the nominations list including: Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, Grimm, Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, True Blood and Game of Thrones.

The Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show category alone holds all shows we've talked about with the nominees of Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and The Walking Dead.  Another genre heavy category is Favorite Dramatic TV Actor with the nominees of Ian Somerhalder, Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Nathan Fillion and Paul Wesley.  While Favorite Dramatic TV Actress is less heavy with genre folk, Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries is nominated here along with Ginnifer Goodwin of Once Upon a Time.  I was surprized at the lone 1 nomination for Grimm, however it broke into the more traditional category of Favorite Dramatic TV Show along with Once Upon a Time.  I wonder what would happen if they branched these to for specific categories, or added supporting actor/actress or guest stars.

One of my favourite categories is Favorite TV Fan Following with the Gleeks - Glee, Little Liars - Pretty Little Liars, Oncers - Once Upon a Time, SPNFamily - Supernatural and TVDFamily - The Vampire Diaries even though they all hold terms I've never even heard of!

The most nominations goes to the 11 shows included in Favorite New TV Drama: 666 Park Avenue, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, Chicago Fire, Elementary, Emily Owens, M.D., Last Resort, The Mob Doctor, Nashville, Revolution and Vegas.  It would be hard for me to choose between all of those shows, as many of them I now watch regularly.

Vote for The 2013 People's Choice Awards here.  The awards will be broadcasted on January 9, 2013 on CBS.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Ep 3 and 4

Did you enjoy the first installments of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome?  If so, it's time for more webisodes over at Machinima Prime with  the release of episode 3 and 4.

The series is a prequel to Battlestar: Galactica and follow a young William Adama as a rookie pilot. 

I am so happy to see that we can view it online here in Canada, and it certainly is shiny with great effects.  I'm a little more character-centric myself, especially as this is following one of my favourite characters (ever), and will be curious to see how it continues to unfold.

Suzie and I chatted about the return of Lost Girl in the new year on the latest episode of Hexed, but I couldn't help but share that awesome news again, especially as now their is a fabulous teaser trailer for the season premiere. I'm excited that Showcase has a YouTube channel, hopefully we will get more goodies their to enjoy! It's not far into the new year that we will have to wait for season 3, and if you are new to the show they are having special called Lost Girl ConFAEdential which is a catch up special that will "get up close and personal with the cast as they discuss the on and off camera antics of the past two seasons." Sounds good to me!

Lost Girl ConFAEdential - Sunday January 6, 2013 at 8pm ET/PT on Showcase

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights & Costumes

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights

    It took me almost two weeks to complete my Hal-Con coverage for Hexed and three days to cover it. It took a physical toll on me but I did it. I am sick as a dog now but I did it!

    I hope you enjoy this highlights video of the convention and at the end is a sneak peek at who will be attending in 2013!

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights

    Steampunk was definitely all over the convention this year and this was my favourite costume of that genre.

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights

    I think this was my favourite costume duo of all time, they were amazing. One of the women actually had talons on her feet! She could barely fit in the elevator. Amazing!

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights

    Of course we snuck in a lot of fun too, had to get into spooky geeky nerdy groove.

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights

    One of my favourite photos of Reg/Khan all weekend, sitting at the Steam Punk submarine photo session.

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights

    I was beyond impressed with these ladies who brought the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 gang! So cool.

    Hal-Con 2012 Highlights

    This lovely Medusa let me take her photo as she was checking her email. Totally worked with my sensibilities, I found it hysterical.

    And here is a slide show of just about everything I saw at Hal-Con this year:

    Thank you so much for tuning in to my coverage. I hope I gave you an overview of what Hal-Con is like, although seriously, experience it for yourself. You won't be sorry!

    One of the best things I have ever done in my life. I laughed so hard, had so much fun and was even moved at times. The people of Hal-Con are some of the most beautiful I have ever met. I miss them already.

    My Hal-Con 2012 Treasures & The Fabulous Vendors

    Giant Robot Comics & Walking Dead T-Shirt at Hal-Con 2011

    Last year at Hal-Con I totally regretted not buying this Walking Dead T-Shirt from Giant Robot Comics

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    So this year I went for it and picked up this one covered in zombies.

    Hal-Con 2012

    I totally love it! Absolutely worth the $25.

    I even wore it with my Hexed pants all day Sunday as I hung out with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    I adore the vendors at Hal-Con. Where else can you find somebody happy to pose with Duff beer like at Monster Comic Lounge?

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    Celtic Mist Gift Shop was a dangerous place for me to hang out. She literally had so many things I almost bought.

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    I was so tempted to get a furry hat, especially the wolf one. I love it!

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    So many New Age products and even singing bowls but I still am unable to get one to sing.

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    Custom Curves looked absolutely fascinating but was so busy fitting people I think I will just go visit them in person. Their work is exquisite.

    Erika at Hal-Con 2012 from Storenvy

    Erika was a total cutie and I especially adored the work she jewellery work she did with paper clay.

    My Hal-Con 2012 Treasures

    This is the pull tag I bought but I am definitely turning it into a necklace. It is so light, so pretty... I want to wear this beauty around my neck. I still can't believe I got it for only $3!

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    Eternal Elf Creations was absolutely one of my favourite vendors again this year. Michelle Dawn Poirier is lovely and her chainmail work, stunning.

    Stuff I bought at Hal-Con 2011

    Last year she totally inspired me to get over my fear of resin when I bought this Goth Girl pendant from her.

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    This year I could have bought absolutely everything she had for sale, I loved it all! It was so hard to choose.

    My Hal-Con 2012 Treasures

    In the end I bought this hand-painted owl pendant with a glass dome that a friend of hers had made. It is so me. I wish I could paint like that! I am wearing the pendant right now, I love it so much and it was only $10!

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    This sale person at Quantum Frontier made me laugh so hard, I totally love that she had made her own Futurama brain slug. She assured me it was easy to make.

    Suzie Ridler at Michaels

    I went to Michaels and picked up some yarn to make the slug and a Firefly Jayne's hat. Seriously, the vendors rock! We picked up Munchkin Fu from Quantum Frontier which we can't wait to play!

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    The ladies at Into the Mystic were so lovely and helpful. All their wares incredibly spirit and cool. Here is one of them after taking Reg/Khan's photograph.

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    They are located in Cole Harbour and I might just go out there one day this winter and take them up on their free 30 minute session with their Jade Infrared Healing Mat.

    My Hal-Con 2012 Treasures & Fabulous Vendor

    Last year Rustic Revolution Pottery inspired me with her ceramic cauldrons and True Blood items. This year I fell in love with these salt spoons!

    Hal-Con 2012 Vendors

    And the zombie mugs. Who doesn't want a zombie mug?!

    My Hal-Con 2012 Treasures

    I gave in to my inner foodie and picked up the spoons for $5 each. Now even in my kitchen I will think of the fun I had at Hal-Con.

    Shopping at Hal-Con made me realized that I don't actually hate to shop (which I thought I did). No. I love to shop where there is merchandise I actually like that really suits me. It is just that it is an incredibly rare thing to happen in my life.

    Everything was fun, weird, silly, geeky and the people are so fabulous. I wish I could shop like this all the time.
