TRON represented at Wizard World Comic Con New Orleans 2012

on Tuesday, December, 11, 2012 10:34 PM
Two weekends ago I attended all three days of the Wizard World Comic Con in New Orleans and was on a mission to represent for all things TRON!

My main goal was to promote awareness of TRON: Uprising and promote the UD Replicas TRON motorcycle suits. So I decided to wear my Sam Flynn suit on Saturday and my Redeemed TRON suit on Sunday.



Here are some pics of the fun:


Me and my crew (Jenny, me and Rachel) getting ready to do some more photo ops


Got asked to be a part of a Calendar and this was during the photo shoot.


When I wasn't geared up I had 6 "TRON" shirts to wear around the con. This was a favorite.


My friend, Michelle and I goofin off

Throughout Saturday and Sunday I took pics with people attending whenever asked and they would take a pic without the flash on. I told them, "If you turn on the flash of your camera, the suit will light up." They would then activate the flash and as they took the pic and it showed up on the screen I got to watch each and everyone of them as their expression changed to "WHOA!!" haha. Much like this pic of me and Babydoll from "Sucker Punch"




One other thing I did was I planned on giving away some TRON: Legacy toys. So I went to my local BigLots and bought what they had left (3 One Man Lightjets) and brought those with me.
Everytime a kid asked to have a pic taken with me and told me that TRON was their favorite movie, I pulled one of the lightjets out of my bag and gave it to them. The kids were stunned and happy. The parents were very appreciative for me not only taking the time to take a picture with their child, but also for making the experience extra special in making them feel special.

I loved seeing the smiles.

Dude, that is AWESOME!! Sounds like you had a great time! And to see those kids faces light up when you gave them the toys! That must have been fantastic! You are a true ambassador of the Grid!

Yes, you are awesome. I love how you didn't give out Tron stuff to just anyone. But giving them to kids interested in Tron was just pure genius. Thanks for the pics and you are an inspiration!

I just wanted to say that I have much more respect for you to do something that normally not a lot of individuals would do nowadays & to be able to make children smile & take them by surprise is something that is special = it's priceless.
