Meeting George Takei

A couple weeks ago the Dallas Comic & Pop Expo held a pre-event signing with George Takei! Madness Comics hosted it and they had a great turn out. George was in town to narrate the Sci-Fi Spectacular performance by the Fort Worth Symphony. I enjoyed hanging out with my friends Krystal and Sean as we browsed through the comics while we waited. George was very polite and excited to meet everyone.

This was my outfit for the event. My Nyan Cat hoodie is from ThinkGeek and my Batman leggings are from Hot Topic.

I didn't mind waiting in line at Madness Comics because it is a really awesome comic book store. It's huge! It used to be a Chuck E Cheese. Also, it was Friday so there was Friday Night Magic going on, lots of people to chat with and so many cool things to buy.

Dallas Comic & Pop Expo is a convention I've never been to. They were giving out 10% off ticket coupons, and I wish I had used it before it expired because Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer is going to be at this convention!! I might just have to try and go to meet him.


George chatted and shook hands with everyone. I was glad they allowed photography at the table so I could snap a few shots.

Here are my friends Krystal and Sean with George. This was the official photo Sean paid for.

Here I am with my freshly autographed Star Trek photo. I am excited to add this to my collection!

Another fun thing about this event was getting to meet the creator of Nyan Cat! Yes you read that correctly. It turns out Christopher Torres lives in the Dallas area! He was in line to meet George, saw me wearing my brightly colored jacket and came up to say hello. Then he gave us some Nyan Cat stickers and buttons! I don't know if I was more excited to meet him or George Takei! lol

  1. Looks like it was a lot of fun :D I need to keep my eyes out for things like this in my area! I am a fan of Star Trek, but TNG. I haven't watched TOS. It would still be great to meet the pioneers!

    That's way cool you met the creator of Nyan Cat by coincidence! Lucky you were wearing your hoodie. c:
    I'm not huge on Star Trek, but would have loved this opportunity. I've also thought about getting into it lately. Might start watching it. c:

  4. Ahhhh! I'm watching Star Trek right this very minute! I'm so jealous-- I've never gotten the opportunity to meet any cast members from any of the series! Let alone the always-wonderful George Takei!

    Also-- meeting the Nyan Cat creator--!!! So cool!

  5. I never got into Star Trek, but that's awesome! George Takei seems like a really great guy.

    And I had no idea that the Nyan cat guy is from Dallas... so cool that you got to meet him while wearing his stuff.

    I loved Star Trek the original series and Star Trek:TNG!

  9. Awesome! I not so secretly wish George Takai was my jiichan (grandpa). Either that or the narrator of my life. How epic would that be?
