Michael here. With spring here, and cons beginning to pop up, I wanted to give you all the rundown on my little adventure at Megacon 2015 that just passed us here in Orlando on the 10th. One of the biggest Comic Conventions held in Florida every year, family owned and operated Megacon has become a staple in Florida geek culture. So with another year come and gone, it was a blast the atmosphere was fantastic, full of cosplayers, new and old.
Lots of guests from all shows and comic artists. Media Guests were as follows, Michael Rooker, Hulk Hogan, Jimmy Hart, Mark Boone Junior, Norman Reedus, Karen Gillan, David Della Rocco, Clifton Collins, Sean Patrick Flanery, Summer Glau, Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk, Cary Elwes, David Ramsey, Lou Ferrigno, Ivy Doomkitty, jeremy Shada, Olivia Olson, Troy Baker, Grey DeLisle, Jess Harnell, Rob Paulsen, Ryan Stratis, and Stan Lee.
This event was huge thousands of people came from all over to see all these amazing people under one roof. lots of vendors, artists looking to make a name for themselves all talking with fans and people alike.
I myself went a little crazy, spending massive amounts of money on Artist prints from some rather great artists, with all the thrill and adventure in the air there was also a proposal in the middle of the convention entrance in front of tons of fellow geeks and nerds sharing fandoms.. cheers and screams rang out as the fair lady accepted the engagement ring.
Each year brings more memories and more friends, I for one plan on going every year as I have been doing the past 3 years.. each year brings something greater and more special, this year was being able to meet Michael Rooker and Norman reedus, both very humble and sweet people. Alan Tudyk and his firefly panel was interesting even brought along Nathon Fillion in a funny sort of way.
I recommend all fellow nerds and geeks to take the time out of the year save a few bucks and go to a local convention in your area.. you will enjoy it and it will be a memory well cherished, in the link below is a ton of photos of cosplayers, convention attendees, and some art from some really great artists.
