This is one of those moments when you are glad you had your video camera. This Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting Ryan McKee, also known as Next Movie’s Male TwiHArd. He’s a really nice guy in person. So we chat for a bit, then proceed to watch the convention.
When the major Q & A’s are over I make a beeline for the bathroom (ladies you understand) and come back about 30 minutes later to witness the end of the costume contest. All of a sudden I see this…well…from one pale Irish gal to one similarly afflicted…one pasty white dude with no shirt on and jeans shorts. You tend not to see things like that too often at conventions. All of a sudden I go to the person next to me, “I swear that’s Ryan.” She confirms, “That’s him all right.” So I whip out my video camera. Alas Ryan didn’t win, but he was a clear crowd favorite for just sheer guts.
So you can read Ryan’s written version of events here, and you can watch then unfold below.
