LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Maybe Flyngirl's entourage idea will work out. Is this a John question? I noticed when requesting celebrity guests on some of the websites, that they also have a volunteer tab. How cool would that be?
Sometimes they do allow you to call or email and volunteer to work at the conventions - I know Phoenix did. I wanted to do it but all of the positions for "celebrity handlers" were filled... I really just wanted to handle celebrities.

I guess it depends on the celebrity. And how they like to be... uh, "handled".

There are comments and a picture on Facebook if anyone is interested. According to a fan's comment, our favorite Komikaze Cowboy has the longest lines.

So the van is there, and I think I caught a quick glimpse of the 'Vette at the end of the report.

Looks like a fun event!

m_steenbrugge, would you mind posting your photos here on the forum? This is the main site, with FaceBook as an adjunct to DBC.

Or perhaps John could post the pics here that are posted there? Anyway, they should be here, either in a forum, or in the Gallery.

Thanks.

Hi! I had a good time at the Comiccon Brussels. Talked to Dirk 3 times, one time incl the photoshoot. he was very happy w my two drawings I made (of him and Fred Astaire and ond of two portaits: Face and Dirk himself.) he was incredible nice and sweet as ever. I am not able to upload my picture here. No idea how to do so. Unfortunately the vid of me meeting him is not alright.
