Interview with Kate Eggins of CTV

I’m super excited to announce that Kate Eggins has asked to do an interview with us on Tuesday morning for the CTV News!

I received Kate’s message last night on our Facebook page. Not gonna lie, I totally fangirled when I saw her name. What can I say? I’m a news nerd lol.

Not sure yet on when the interview is suppose to air, but we’ll definitely keep everyone posted!

Interview with Jeff Hopper on CTV

If you didn’t get to catch Brandon & I yesterday on CTV Ottawa Morning Live, the interview is now online!

I still honestly haven’t watched it, heck I still haven’t even watched my wedding video my maid of honors father recorded for us. What can I say, I just don’t like seeing myself in videos. But I’m told it looked great, and I didn’t look nervous at all.. When in actual fact, I was totally freaking out. Jeff however, was absolutely awesome to work with, and I’m so glad he was the one doing the interview! Nothing against the girls of course!

Montreal Comic Con

This past weekend Brandon & I were working with our DWSC folks at Montreal Comic Con. Thus why we’ve been a bit quiet in the updating department the past few days.

This was the first time DWSC was at MCC, and I think I can speak for everyone when I say it was great! This was also our first time working the booth, surprisingly enough. Though we’re usually at all the same conventions & we want to help, it’s difficult because we always have James. This time though we made the arrangements to leave him at home so we could work. Which in some ways, kind of sucked, because Jason David Frank from Powers Rangers was there, as well as the Ecto 1 from Ghostbusters – Two things James would have LOVED! But as much as we love having him at conventions, it was so much easier not having him & we loved working the booth.

Some highlights from the convention.. Our Daleks Clifton, Souffle & Dreadnaught won Best In Show in the Masquerade!!

All in all it was a great weekend! We brought tons of flyers with us to help promote our donation page. Lots were taken, so we’re hoping that’s a good sign! We have a couple more events/conventions coming up in the next couple of months. One of which is the new Pop Expo run by the same folks behind Ottawa Comic Con & Montreal Comic Con, and will take place December 7-8th. One of the featured guests is Sylvester McCoy! So if you’re in the Ottawa area, be sure to check it out. Brandon & I, along with Dalek Souffle, Clifton & our Ottawa DWSC team will be there!
