StarFest 2014

May the 4th be with you!  StarFest 2014 was held in Denver, CO May 2-4.  I was happy to be on the official photgraphy staff for the convention.  While the StarFest caters to Star Wars geeks everywhere, there are additional "fests" that take place all within this single event.  The most notable of these are HorrorFest, ComicFest, and GameFest.  Your ticket gets you in to see and participate in all of these different areas of StarFest so there is sure to be something to please everyone. Starfest always attracts some big name guests.  While there are too many to name here, the most notable guests this year were:

Amanda Tapping

Giancarlo Esposito

Nichelle Nichols

Tim Russ

Billy Dee Williams

Sam Witwer

Suzie Plakson

A couple of highlights that stood out to me were Suzie Plakson's presentation and the singer/performer group Not Literally.  Suzie Plakson is best know for playing K'Ehler, the Klingon Wife of Worf on Star Trek The Next Generation.  During her presentation she spoke about what it was like working on the set and gave background details about her character.  All this while Kevin Atkins applied makeup transforming her into K'Ehleyr.  It was pretty fascinating.  The group Not Literally was hilarious.  They specialize in producing parody music videos that make fun of geeky movies and TV shows like Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Game of Thrones, etc.  On stage they sang the songs live while their videos played on huge screens.  Very funny.  

If you are into comic conventions, StarFest is definitely one of the best.  The link below provides photos taken during StarFest 2014, including general cosplay photos, celebrities, the costume contest, and more.
