Nirvana. Elysium. Heaven. They are all words of paradise that hold different meanings to different people. Through the eyes of a geek girl, they are filled with visions of dancing Deadpools, the Borg and trolls.
This year, for FanX 2015, our deity was The Doctor.
For those of us on the fence about going to FanX, the answer was “yes” as soon as the announcement came that the 11th Doctor (Matt Smith) was actually coming to Salt Lake City with Amelia Pond (Karen Gillan) in tow.
Charlie Bradbury to some, Codex to others or Felicia Day to the general public was another face that filled FanX with excitement. Would she be as adorably dorky in real life as she is in “Supernatural” and “The Guild”? The answer was another resounding “yes.”
This year’s FanX held a little bit of everything for almost every fan girl (or boy). From fantasy to sci-fi, thousands piled into the convention center this weekend to catch a glimpse of those actors who fill their dreams with a possibility that there is more to life than the monotony of everyday life.
FanX was no different than Comic Con in the fall or Fantasy Con in the spring.
Unless there is announcement of the names Jared and Jensen, this fan girl will hold out until the big Comic Con in the fall should they announce another con for spring.
