Awesome Con DC

Saturday I had the opportunity to attend Washington DC’s inaugural comic convention, brought to you by Awesome Conventions. The experience was a lot of fun. I was super impressed by how well put together the con was and how smoothly everything ran. Running around, taking pictures and asking questions, I only had the chance to attend a few panels, but the ones I did go to were amazing. When asked, many people told me this was their first convention ever but based off the experience they were definitely excited to start going to more. All in all a great experience, and my hat’s off to the folks who put it together.

I took A LOT of pictures but I tried to sort through and pick just a few to share. And by just a few I mean quite a few.

  1. Looks like fun was had by all! 🙂

  2. No Phil LaMarr? I met him. I got his autograph and photo

  3. I haven’t been to a Star Wars vs. Star Trek debate panel, but I think it sounds silly. Can’t we all get along? I like both. even Carrie Fisher said they’re not in the same universe so therefore they’re not comparable. Something else was going on at the time, so I wasn’t able to attend

  4. The panel was just kind of a good way to blow off steam between the fandoms. I personally sided with SW out of principle, but I am also a fan of Star Trek, I was just raised with SW a lot more growing up.

    Sadly I didn’t have time to meet with Phil. I was hoping to get a chance to catch up with him later in the day on Saturday but things didn’t pan out.

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  5. I was there too!!!!! Can’t wait ’til next year!!!!!! That, and my post on Awesome Con will be up before the end of this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!
