Susan Meets The God Of Thunder AKA Chris Hemsworth! Frank Grillo! Robert Englund! And More At Wizard World Cleveland!

I’ve been hitting the convention trail lately. It’s a fun getaway and for a double February birthday celebration, why not, right?

Anushika and I headed to Cleveland for Wizard World. I have yet to meet the dashing Chris Hemsworth who plays Thor and he was headlining the event.

We survived the worst airline in history – Spirit – and landed in one piece. We stayed at an awesome, vintage hotel downtown and then battled the bitter cold to walk to the convention center for some much needed fun.

I got my long awaited photo op with Chris – yay! Boy, they moved that line quickly, and no fun poses were allowed. Just in, hi, snap, bye! It’s a great photo though so well worth it!

I also got one of my favorites, Frank Grillo, who’s soon to become a household name given his talent and larger role in the Captain America series. Shika and I combed the convention floor looking for a Crossbones item and nada! We finally spotted a cool card stock print with Cap, Crossbones, Hawkeye and Falcon. The artist also signed it for free, so we each grabbed one and headed to meet Frank.

Unfortunately, Frank had a family emergency and had to leave the con early, cancelling his photo op (for which I had a ticket), but we luckily got him before he left. He’s so sweet! Plus we got a great photo op anyway.

Shika got to meet the one and only Mr. Freddy Krueger – Robert Englund himself. What a nice guy. Doesn’t rush his fans and talks your ear off. We got a great photo of him before we left.

We also took some time from the con to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which was a blast!

The nice thing about visiting cons in other cities/states is the different vendors. Being in the LA area, we see the same vendors at every venue and it gets a bit stale. This time, I was able to pick up some merchandise I haven’t seen before, like an awesome Star Trek art print I’ll be holding on for Mr. William Shatner to sign.
