Tom charmed the socks off yet another Comic Con this past weekend in Las Vegas. He started off by tossing granola bars and handing out Red Bull from the goody bag waiting at the signing table for him when he first arrived, then proceeded to take a few moments with each fan to chat, take selfies and patiently sign photos, bags and memorabilia for everyone waiting. He had several signing sessions throughout the weekend, as well as a lightning fast photo op with fans each day - those Con photographers do not mess around.

This was the inaugural event for Wizard World in the Las Vegas venue. Attendance wasn't huge, but it was refreshing to be able to walk a Con floor and not get jostled around by backpacks and cosplay weapons/wings/appendages for a change. The Las Vegas Convention Center was a bit out of the way, but easily reached by monorail, and being in Vegas, had the added bonus of plenty of restaurants and entertainment available outside the con. Perfect for, say, a large group of Sleepyheads to get together and support the very talented actor who plays their favorite cantankerous, time traveling Revolutionary War Captain and Witness (with a capital W). Lucky for us, they offered the "Tom Mison VIP Experience," so waiting on lines was kept to a minimum, and we got seats in the first two rows at the panel with no problem at all. Well worth the expense.

Photos, including the ones above, are up in the galleries - there are more to come, so check back over the next few days. Tom also did a really fun, fairly casual panel, with fans asking the questions and getting pretty vocal from the audience. A few times the panel in the next room got a little too loud and Tom and moderator Chris Payne decided to retaliate, leading the audience in a group fangirl scream to counteract it. All while Tom flipped them off. PRICELESS.

Below you'll find video of the first part of the panel - parts 2 and 3 (with the aforementioned flipping off) will follow soon.

Still swooning

Still reliving last weekend every time I watch the videos. Spectacular weekend with great ladies. Tom was more adorable in person than I ever thought he would be. Special memories that I will never forget and with watching the videos, I won't have to! Thanks Liz!

This whole weekend will

This whole weekend will always make me smile. Not JUST because Tom Mison was an absolute GEM (he really was), but also because our little gaggle of fans was such a great, fun team.  New friends AND memories for a lifetime--more than anyone could ask for.

Tom Mison Panel-a big THANK YOU

Hi,

My friend called me and told me about this video. I was there and was the person that asked Tom the question about the scarecrow blooper and the airplane suggestion. I wanted to thank the person that video taped this as now I can enjoy it over and over and it was nice of you to do this for all us Tom fans. I was also a VIP and my experience was memorable. Tom was the sweetest man in the world and was so generous and kind to everyone who spoke with him. Thanks again for the video and I am looking forward to the rest.

Gailya (aka Sleepy Head) :-)
