The first panel of the day was the Vampire Academy movie pannel with the stars and director of the film. The movie is based on the popular young adult book series by Rachel Meed. They showed an exclusive trailer of the film and answer question about each of the character. Of course, we were interested because there were hot girls playing vampire in school uniforms!
We stopped by Booth 647 to get our nails painted with the always phenomenal, alway creepy-chic, always the coolest nail artist Sincerely Kim Bui. She wore her trademark eyeliner, perfectly dyed tresses, and kitten tights! Check out her work at @sincerelykimbui on Instagram.
After taking tons of photos of hot girls in cosplay, we headed over to the Venture Bros. Q&A panel where Doc Hammer and Jackson Publicks talked about their writing process, how they create their characters, and their long production process—and then Doc Hammer danced with a surprised fan to “Grease Lightning.”
The Adult Swim panels continued with the producers of Robot Chicken where Claire Grant, Matthew Senreich, Breckin Meyer, Seth Green, and, oddly, Macaulay Culkin talked about their upcoming projects, working with Bryan Cranston, and how they manage their time producing the show while getting involved with other projects (Seth Green is now starring in the show Dads, and Breckin Meyer is starring in Men At Work). At some point, the conversation stopped because a guy dressed in as a Transformer walked up to the microphone to ask a question—and Breckin Meyer had to take a photo.
The day ended with extra books from the publishers of Penguin, a cool World of Warcraft mini action figure, plenty of Doctor Who cosplay, and overly priced food at the food court.
Until day three!
