It’s here! Hold on to something! We’re going to covering everything we can. As well as making new memories with old friends!
*TALENT SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Cancellations: Hale Appleman, Stella Maeve and Ernie Hudson
Also here is a schedule lay out for all the upcoming shows.
So a few days ago, I was roaming around Twitter as you do and saw a post from James Marsters say that he was dropped random from Wizard World Portland. With no reason as to why, he went on to inform everyone that was coming to this comic con. I might note that this Wizard World is vary heavy on the Buffy theme with Alyson Hannigan, Alexis Denisof, Juliet Landau, Julie Benz, Amber Benson, Clare Kramer, and Charisma Carpenter.
With an out cry from his fans trying to figure out as to why he was removed from the line up. I personally went and asked my PR that I go through for my press pass and asked him. He didn’t have any idea as to why he was dropped as well. So after a few conversations back and forth, later on that day James updated he Twitter stating:
After seeing the concern and love from everyone last night, both me and ‘s management have mutually worked things out. I’m so happy to announce that I will still be attending Wizard World Portland! I’m very excited for this Buffy extravaganza and seeing you there!
So it seems that Comic Cons are getting in on the loot crate style boxes. Wizard World has a number of them this year. One being the Rick and Morty mystery box.
The box itself cost about $60.00 and inside is totally worth it!
We also got the Harry Potter: Slytherin loot box and a free mystery box. But that will be for another post.
(CONTINUED) Partial refunds are being issued to our #LordoftheRings VIPs so that you’ll still have admission as well as your autographs/photo ops with Billy Boyd! See you soon, Portland.

So around the beginning of the month I found this app by chance, called Nerd Out. Basically with this app it’s a community of nerds banding together to share information about events that are happening near by(to you). Or as they put it:
Nerd Out is a mobile nerd event calendar application available for download on Apple and Android devices. Discover nerd inspired events in an easily accessible calendar. Listing events like Comic Con, Lightsaber Battles, Geeks Who Drink, Tabletop gaming, Screenings, Trivia & more!
So on a random thought I thought I’d write to them and see if I can join up and represent Oregon. A few emails back and forth, I’m now a member of the Nerd Out crew :). Portland is the only city in Oregon currently listed on the app, I’m hoping that will change soon. I’ll be listing events from all over Oregon, seeings how I live in Lebanon, Or. myself. ALSO! As part of being with the Nerd Out crew I got this cool little shirt!!
