This year’s Awesome Con was the best one yet. Mike and I have been going to this con since it started in 2013. Every time it has gotten bigger and bigger, but even with the crowds it has continued to be fun. This time we went on both Saturday and Sunday. The organizers appear to have put a lot of thought into the programming, with panels covering many different geek interests and aspects of pop culture, from TV to comics to gaming to crafting to science. Furthermore, the array of vendors and artists in the expo hall was really impressive. And the cosplayers were legion. Everywhere we went there were great costumes! I appreciate going to a con where there is such a large variety of things to do and see.
This post covers the con generally. I will follow up with hall photos of cosplayers and pictures of my and Mike’s costumes.
All of my purchases and swag. Maggie gave me the NASA sticker (and she gave one to every waiter we ran into at Zengo, where we went to dinner on Saturday–she may have had some extra stickers…) and Jay Justice signed my badge.
