It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
No, not Christmas…Convention….mas.
Ok, so that got away from me a little bit, but no matter how you phrase it, this is the time for you to dust off your geek flag and let it fly high.
“What are we going to do this convention season?” you’re asking yourself.
“The same thing we do every convention season….TRYING TO BUY ALL THE THINGS!”
We’ve got a great convention lineup for your this year…with TWO brand spanking new conventions we are attending. Guess what? I’m going to sweeten this deal even more. Those two bonus conventions…are out of state!
Ok, ok, calm down a bit everyone. I know you’re hearts are racing, and you just spit coffee all over your monitor. So let’s ease into all this new news, and start with the classics.
Yes, the first convention of the year, and one of the best we’ve been to in the Chicago area by far ramps up again April 13-15.
If you missed it last year take a few seconds to click the links below and check out our coverage of the convention.
Now this one is downtown at McCormick Place, so if you’re going to attend be sure to alot travel time.
Outside of the main consumer reasons to attend this convention…what are the big reasons to go?
- Extreme artist alley. C2E2′s artist alley is jam packed full of amazing popular and up and coming artists.
- Awesome variety for panels.
- Speed dating
- IT’S ON A RED FREAKING CARPET!
Just a few short weeks after C2E2, April 25-29, while you’re still ramped up in full on geek mode, break out your foreign fandom with Acen! This convention is hosted out in Rosemont, IL and boasts some of the most intricate and outrageous cosplay we’ve ever seen! On top of that, you will get to meet some of the coolest, most genuine people on the planet, and possibly walk away with a whole messload of new friends.
Didn’t see our coverage from last year? For shame. Chatchup now!
