My commission I got from Adi Granov at the Calgary Expo. I was freaking out when I got this. Adi Granov is my favourite artist and even if you don’t recognize his name, his work is all over the place. After all, he’s kinda responsible for the iconic movie design for Iron Man.
So naturally, when the opportunity came up for me to shell out some cash for a one of a kind piece of art from the man, I was not going to pass it up.
I took a purposely bad photo of it and tagged it, because again I paid a lot of money for this. It’s a personal piece for myself and I would like to stay the sole owner of it and not have people swiping a printed version off the internet. cuz that’s not fair to me who paid all the money. ( unless of course he uploads a good version on his facebook page, then I’ll share that one. But for now… I’m sorry if this is considered greedy :/ )
I also got a hold of some walkers over the weekend. Look out Rick.
Excuse the bad phone shots. I am also now the proud owner of Orcrist, Thorin Oakenshield’s sword in the Hobbit. I snagged this literally 15-20 min before the con was officially over on Sunday. They chopped the price down some and I had to grab it.
It’s a fully steel blade, so this bad boy has some serious weight to it. The whole thing is just amazing and I’m so glad I bought it.
Before anyone asks, no this was not the $9,000 master sword smith one that Weta Workshop had on display. I wish I had that kinda money to buy that one though… This is just a replica by United Cutlery, a wonderful source for licensed replica swords.

These are personal photos I paid money for, if you wish to share, please reblog or share via my facebook page listed on the photos.
John Barrowman: Oh John, you giant man child. I walked up and he goes, “HEY HORNY!” and then proceeded to reach down out of the frame of the photo and grabbed my butt. So I’m kinda mid trying to stop myself from laughing. Love that guy.
Steven Yeun, Melissa McBride and Norman Reedus: I accidentally distracted Norman Reedus from one of the photos before me when I walked around the corner and he caught sight of my helmet. The look on his face was priceless. So I asked him if he wanted to hold my Tesseract and he gave me the biggest childish yes I have ever heard come out of a grown man before. I almost didn’t get it back, he wanted to keep it, haha. All three of them were super sweet and I love this photo.
Stan Lee! Unfortunately the line for photo ops was moving so quickly the poor man could hardly get any words out to most people. But he certainly tried. I’m just so happy~ :D
