Lost Girl at Dragon Con 2014 — Episode 66

All three of us attended Dragon Con 2014 where Ksenia Solo, Rick Howland, and Emmanuelle Vaugier were guests. Kevin Bachelder, longtime and enthusiastic Dragon Con attendee, joins us for a discussion of our Dragon Con 2014 experience, including attending the cast Q&A panels as well as the Lost Girl fan events. Kevin is part of the Tuning in to SciFi TV family of podcasts, which includes his Lost Girl podcast, The Fae Files.

Cast Panels

While the panels weren’t as raucous as last year’s, they were still a ton of fun. Rick, Ksenia, and Emmanuelle were great guests. Even when the questions were a bit…odd, they managed to give interesting answers.

  • Rick was hilarious. What a great sense of humor.
  • Emmanuelle dressed up as Pinky Pie, which might top Paul Amos’s Zoie Palmer cosplay.
  • Ksenia was lovely and thoughtful. She really did a great job interacting with the other cast members and drawing out their answers.
  • Sadly, Zoie had to cancel. Annie had made a Dr. Lauren Lewis unicorn with a Light Fae necklace, stethoscope, and lad coat with syringes and vials on the inside.

Interesting Answers
  • Annie asked them what they would take away from interacting with Lost Girl fans and got a little choked up. They were all very sweet about how much the fan response means to them.
  • Kris thought it was interesting what Ksenia revealed about a deleted scene in “Original Skin.” Originally, a scene was scripted in which Dyson as Kenzi tries to seduce a guard to get into Lachlan’s chambers, but the scene was cut before it was even shot. Ksenia was so disappointed that she never got to film that scene. (And so are we! It sounds priceless.)
  • Inspired by Ksenia mentioning that cut scene, Stephanie asked if there were any other scenes or lines that they were sad didn’t make it into the final episodes. Rick mentioned that all of his scenes were cut in a Season 4 episode due to time. He said the scenes were cut in “Lovers. Apart.” but Stephanie wonders if it might have actually been “Turn to Stone” since he is credited for that episode, but we don’t see his face.

Interactions with the Cast

  • Kevin had a great interaction with Ksenia. She walked over to a spot with good lighting to take a picture with him and when the first two photos turned out blurry, she took a selfie with him as well just to make sure he had a good photo.
  • Rick noticed Annie’s Papaya Horse button and true to form Annie couldn’t remember Pyrippus’s name to explain the joke to him.
  • Both Rick and Ksenia mentioned that the producers know about the podcast, which was crazy flattering.
  • Stephanie and Kris chatted with Rick for quite a bit about Trick’s tattoo, since it was still on Rick’s arm from shooting. Rick said he thought the tattoo was related to Trick being the Blood King, but he also speculated that it might represent Trick’s union with Isabeau since it features two birds, as he described it, fighting over a piece of spaghetti.

  5. What country was Lauren in when she first encountered the Fae?
  6. Tamsin collected what material from people in Bo’s life for the rune glass potion?

  9. Bo’s hometown has a festival centered around what fruit?
  10. What food is Kenzi allergic to?

Bonus Question:

Fan Panel
  • There was some good discussion of Season 4 at the fan panel. We talked about the new friendships formed in Season 4, our favorite Season 4 episodes, Lauren’s long game, and more. You can listen to or watch the fan panel.

Great to meet people!

  • It was so great to meet some listeners at Dragon Con, including Aaron, Angela, Rani, Sabrina, somewhataddicted, Jenah, and her son.
  • While all the panels were a lot of fun, it was getting to hang out and meet folks that made Dragon Con great.

  1. Ok. I will put my answers here since you didn’t say where to put them… and I have to do little to no research for these… I guess I really am a Lost Girl Fan! 🙂

    Fan Meet up Questions… Can I get them all correct:

    Highlight below to read possible answers to trivia questions.

    What name was Bo called growing up?
    Beth Dennis

    Name two people from Dyson’s past that we’ve seen, excluding Trick and Hale.
    Flora Blooms & Ciara, the Fairy Queen

    What clan does Hale’s family belong to?
    Zamora

    Who is Geraldine?
    Kenzi’s Samauri sword which is used by Bo to kill Massimo in “Dark Horse”

    What country was Lauren in when she first encountered the Fae?
    Africa – The Congo to be more exact.

    Tamsin collected what material from people in Bo’s life for the rune glass potion?
    Hair – 1 from someone she loved
    2 from someone she trusted
    3 from Bo herself

    What do the Light Fae name their leaders after?
    Trees

    Name all the characters who have asked where Bo and Kenzi keep their toothpaste.
    Dyson, Lauren & Vex

    Bo’s hometown has a festival centered around what fruit?
    Cherry

    What food is Kenzi allergic to?
    Peanuts

    Bonus Question:
    What type of Fae worked in a strip club in a Season 2 episode?
    Selkies – Seal Shifters

    1. The following is an answer to a trivia question. Highlight to read.

      Though technically we haven’t seen what Flora really looks like so the other one could be Cayden & Stefan
    2. I meant more in a “answer them in your head” kind of way so that if people wanted to see if they knew the answers then they wouldn’t be readily visible. But no big deal. Thanks for answering! 🙂 I turned your answers a similar color as the background so that people can highlight them to read if they would like.

  2. I thought the cast were great; they’re always super nice though no matter who’s representing. It’d be great to get Anna and Zoie there for 2015 since they’re they only two missing from attendance so far. I agree with everyone, Ksenia does know how to find her light.

    I think it would be fun to see Steph dressed as Trick because no one has done him yet to my knowledge so she’d get that first.

    Meeting fellow fans was great, that’s half the fun to DragonCon; you get to meet the stars of your favorite shows and hang out with fellow fans, it’s great. I would like to know Stephanie’s original questions for the fan panel. Speaking of the fan panel, you could do a “World In Review” theme so it’s open to everything that’s been on the show, you’re not necessarily focused on one aspect and it’d be a nice memory for the series.

    In regards to the fan meeting, is there any chance you’d consider doing more than one fan meet up event or perhaps having it on another day for those who only come in for the weekend?

    1. The Urban Fantasy track director is in charge of the official meet-ups, so we don’t have control over that. But if a couple of us are there next year, we might consider doing a Drinks at The Dal meet-up on Saturday or Sunday. We’ll see what happens.

  3. Stephanie, these questions seem completely reasonable to me but then again I could answer them all, including the tiebreaker! Now I’m curious about the original questions. Post S5 there should be a Lost Girl version of trivial pursuit! Also wouldn’t it be cool to have a special director’s cut of Lost Girl with episode commentary by Emily Andras, Vanessa Piazza, etc.? And bloopers!!
