    OMG, I (as a weeping angel) got to attack Billie Piper! Then she hugged me!!! It's so Epic.. I can't.....Ahhhh!

    4 · April 20

    • Rivkah

      Yeah, I was in literally thousands of people's photos this weekend and that was the best one, hands down!

    I got to see Sean Astin up close. Also, I discovered that people kept calling me Steve, and wanting a picture with me.

  • Chris

    Lines are pretty short today. Note to self easter Sunday means good Con day.

    4 · April 20

    • Bryce

      Sundays are typically the better day to go. Better deals on comics and gear.

      April 20

  • Bryce

    Not sure how many of us wound up hanging out, but glad to see such great support of a local event by the meetup group.

    1 · April 20

  • Andres

    Im on my way to the con right now. Anyone gonna be going today to meet up for the Billie Piper Q&A?

    April 20

    • Andres

      At this point the line is more of a nerdy mob waiting to get in.

      April 20

    • Chris

      We decided to skip it and do Shawn Austin

      April 20

  • Lewie

    Ugh, lines were super long, but moved quick. Had a lot of fun today. May return tomorrow. Maybe I'll bump into you guys.

    1 · April 19

  • Erin

    Intense day...mostly filled with waiting in lines and pushing through crowds. But I walked away victorious with a signed photo of Billie. I also enjoyed seeing a bit of Sean Astin's panel and Simon Fisher-Becker, not to mention the great costumes.

    3 · April 19

  • Bryce

    This place is a madhouse, great to see such a fantastic turnout though.

    3 · April 19

    • Iain E.

      Absolutely correct, sir

      1 · April 19

  • Iain E.

    Bad wolf here!

  • Fabricio C.

    If anyone has room for an extra person in their group text me (845)[masked], I'm in line right now

    April 19

  • Drew S.

    I'll be in my TARDIS hoodie .

    April 19

  • Andres

    Anyone else here? Im waiting in line right now! So exciting. Got my Pokemon trainer gear on.

    2 · April 19

  • Bobby

    Are we allowed to bring a backpack?

    April 18

    • Allan T.

      Yes, but it may get searched.

      April 19

    • Bryce

      There's nothing in the FAQs which says that bags aren't allowed.

      April 19

  • Joe D

    I'll be in BSG greens tomorrow, and my son will be Sora.

    April 18

  • Rivkah

    For anyone interested: All Doctor Who cosplayers are meeting up Saturday night at 6pm to take group photos.

    1 · April 18

    • Lewie

      Way to expensive

      April 18

    • Rivkah

      Their $350 Gold level tickets are already sold out! That is crazy.

      April 18

  • Brandy

    I'll be there Saturday and Sunday with some friends. If you have a chance, check out my friend's daughter's artist alley booth Dimple Dots! This 11 year old has made some really fantastically nerdy perler creations :)

    April 18

  • Nichole

    I'm going Saturday with friends and Sunday on my own (Sundays are always the best convention day - much smaller crowds!). No costume for me. I'm a bookish nerd, not a crafty one. But I look forward to seeing what everyone else puts together!

    April 18

  • Laura B.

    We will be dressed at Steve from Minecraft, Connor Kenway from Assassins Creed, and two overextended geeky parents. See you there!

    April 18

  • Cris P.

    I am going only on Saturday with my wife, two kids and a few other friends.

    April 18

  • Rivkah

    I'm going Saturday & Sunday.

    April 16

  • Brian

    I finally had a chance to sit down and look at the schedule, and realized that there are a number of events that I'd like to see, but my preferred schedule is unlikely to exactly resemble anyone else's.

    Sooo, my thinking is to post comments here, or else go to the meetup room (203A) occasionally during the day to check if there's anyone from this group there that is looking to go to a session, or to one of the game rooms, or explore the vendor area, or whatever. It would be great to see as many of you as possible there!

    I'm looking to start the day by going to the "First Contact" panel session (10:15am Saturday). I do love (most) all things alien!

    1 · April 15

  • Fabricio C.

    I'm going on Saturday, Let me know if you want to meetup!

    April 14

  • Andres

    Any other groups going have space for one (maybe two) more person/people? I'm new to the group and wanted to get to know new people.

    April 14

    • Andres

      Sorry for the double post but I meant for Saturday ^.^

      April 14

    • Naomi

      My group only has me and one other. You are welcome to join us. If you click on my profile you'll see how to email me for details.

      April 14

  • Joe D

    Will be other Fri and Sat

    April 14

  • Nichole

    They have a room set aside for people from online groups to meet up. That's an option.

    April 12

    • Naomi

      That is an option. I'm not really doing much on the day hosting wise. What I'm trying to do with this event is hook other people up with buddies for the day. Please use this page and our facebook group to do that.

      April 12

  • Brian

    I'd love to make some advance plans on when / where to meet!

    April 12

    • Naomi

      I'm already meeting someone in the general area at 9:30am you may join if you wish.

      April 12

  • Fabricio C.

    Any scheduled time we meet up or we just show when we want?

    Be sure to keep the weapons policy in mind while putting the final touches on your costume.

    April 11

    • Naomi

      I don't think my lightsaber will be either. But while they say foam weapons are okay they don't cover obviously fictional plastic ones.

      April 11

    • Naomi

      Regardless everyone should be prepared.

      April 11

  • Angel

    I'll be attending on Saturday. Look forward to it.

    April 11

  • Anna M.

    The 501st is going their Blast A Trooper for charity the whole weekend. I'll be helping out at the 501st PR table and the BAT on Saturday. I'll be at the Meet the 501st panel on Saturday as well.

    2 · April 9

  • Chris

    I'm going Sunday. but I got normal tickets. Did everyone else get the super tickets?

    April 8

    • Naomi

      I got a one day normal for Saturday. A more reliable form of communication to find others who are going on Sunday would be our facebook page. (linked above)

      April 8

    • Chris

      Oh yeah I remember reading that. Thanks

      April 8

  • Erin P.

    Got my team rocket grunt cosplay all ready to go!
    Anyways my plans are to hit Sean Astin's Q&A Saturday morning at 10:45, which means I'm getting there right at ten and sitting in line. If anybody else wants to do his Q&A message me and we can meet up.
    Other than that I'm probably going to just wander around, people watch and hit the game rooms.

    April 8

  • Lewie

    I have to see my doc in the morning, but I'm sure I'll see you guys there.

    Hey Naomi, if possible, could I be in your group at AwesomeCon? I don't know anyone else in this group.

    March 21

    • Naomi

      Sure, message me for details.

      April 2

  • Naomi

    Here's the game plan. Use this page and our facebook page (linked below) to find people to be in your group for the day. Your goal should be to find 1 or more people with similar schedule plans/desires and go from there. If you need any help at all Email me or message me via facebook. https://www.facebook.com/events/640755702632635/

  • Julie M.

    We went last year and had a blast :) Its nice that the first one was such a hit that they went crazy with it haha!

    April 2

  • Naomi

    Please note that there are no tickets at the door and the dates that you can purchase tickets are coming to a close. Please buy your tickets as soon as possible.

    March 13

    • Anna M.

      Awesome con had a recent post that said you can buy at the door.

      March 21

    • Naomi

      I did see that. I also heard from people who went last year and they said the door ticket lines are VERY long (more than an hour). Seriously, buy your tickets ahead of time.

      1 · March 23

  • Kristi

    Any tips for a con newbie? :)

    March 20

    • Naomi

      Also cell phone coverage can be spotty and/or just hard to hear. I would make sure that you have meeting points within your group to make sure you can find each other if you get separated.

      March 21

    • Bryce

      This may seem obvious, but wear comfortable shoes/clothes. There's a lot of walking, even more than you would estimate. The convention center is massive & you may be in several lines for minutes/hours at a time. So comfort on your feet is paramount.

      March 21

  • Brian

    I got a ticket for Saturday's events only. I heard Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) has cancelled for health-related reasons. :-(

    March 14

  • Stacy

    We get to Billie Piper(Rose) from Doctor Who! A nice lineup.

    2 · January 22, 2014

    • Leah

      Cary Elwes is a huge favorite of mine! :)

      January 25, 2014

    • Naomi

      And now Sam from LOTR is coming too!!!

      March 7

  • Lewie

    Got the regular 3-Day Geekend. Did you guys get the Easter Geekend Billie Piper VIP one instead?

    February 16, 2014

    • Naomi

      My plan is to get the Sat & Sun ticket I am just waiting for my student check so I can so that.

      February 16, 2014

    • Naomi

      Scratch that Sunday is Easter....I have to go to mass. I'll be there all day Saturday though.

      March 7

  • Naomi

    Since this is over Easter weekend I will only be attending Saturday's portion of the con. So I can go to mass on Sunday.

    From what I can tell right now there are people going on any combo of the 3 days.

    We will be more organized as the event gets closer I promise.

    February 21, 2014

  • Chris

    I think I can do it!!!!

    January 23, 2014

  • Bryce

    This years' lineup is vastly improved over last year. Hopefully this con continues to grow.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
