Red Dragon Con III - Demore Barnes
The surprise of the weekend, Demore honestly gave the most in depth and wonderful answers to every single question put to him. (Eddie Izzard level) He came on stage for his first talk to Uptown Funk and danced around the whole crowd.
And every now and then he did “Tobias face”! After two wonderful sessions, at the end of his second talk he wanted to ask US a question, what is it that makes us love this show so much? The general consensus and answer given is that Hannibal (as a show, and the community) celebrates those that are different and combats/discusses the kind of loneliness that being different creates.
I gave Demore a Tobias lure (with violin wire, which he enjoyed v. much) and some badges.
It was Demores birthday over the weekend and I designed his card, when he received it he pointed at the front and did the “kid in a candy store” face and showed all the other guests, so officially pleased.
I think our photo was super cute! And the guy is 41 years old? HE LOOKS 25 WTF.
He signed a spot on my artbook which I will post later and was a complete gent!
He was the Vlad of RDC3, definitely! I’m so pleased he came. He spent the whole weekend with a huge beautiful grin on his face. I think he was overwhelmed but in the most wonderful way.
