Cons This Week

Cons This Week (Feb 15-17)

(Taken at TaiyouCon 2013 )

I think this is a record weekend so far for 2013. TWENTY FIVE CONS here in the United States. It’s a mish-mash of anime, comic book, gaming, steampunk and sci-fi cons.

The big ones this weekend is probably Katsucon in Maryland, a highly anticipated anime con well-known for the beautiful hotel plus high levels of costuming. For those in Los Angeles, check out Creations Grand Slam where you can meet the cast of Star Trek : Next Generation as well as casts from Voyager, Deep Space Nine, Enterprise as well as other TV shows like Fringe, Teen Wolf and more. I have to work that weekend but if I get off early enough, I’m heading to Creations in Burbank.

Oh, there’s Gallifrey One in Los Angeles this weekend too – one of the largest Dr. Who cons in the country.

As usual, the dates are for the weekend of Feb 15-17 unless otherwise noted – yes, some cons are going 4 days long for the President Day weekend. If I missed any, let me know !

Oh, and Harlem Shake will make an appearance at some of these cons this weekend.

Cons This Weekend (Nov. 30 – Dec. 2, 2012)

( my artist alley neighbor from last weekend – )
Besides the Wizard World comic con down in New Orleans, we have a host of interesting cons. Eyecon is a Vampire Diaries con down in Orlando, we got a Ghostbusters con (!!!) called Ecto Con in Missouri, two Steampunk cons – one in WI, the other is SC.

13 cons this weekend. I may have missed a con so if I did, please post it in the comments below and I’ll add to the list.

Where will I be ? I’ll be over at BentCon in Burbank on Saturday. I got some friends in Artist Alley so gonna go support them and say howdy. Like Florida, California has a crap load of cons. Quentin Lee is gonna be there – he and his pal Justin Lin did Better Luck Tomorrow – yeah, I support indie Asian filmmakers. It’s tough being Asian in Hollywood. Also noticed Wendy Pini (Elf Quest) is gonna be there too. You may remember Wendy’s Red Sonja cosplay from the late 1970s. So I’ll be there on Sat.

As always, assume the con to be a three day con from Nov.30th to Dec 2nd unless otherwise noted.
