Megacon (Orlando)

One of the best and biggest cons in Florida. If you are thinking of attending this totaly awesome convention and want to spend a little geek time with friends, need a ride or hotel share, or want to try a group cosplay then sign up.  Get your geek on, suit up and join us. Check out the con http://megaconvention.com/

                            How can we find each other?

My wife, daughter and myself will be at the following panels about 20-30 min before they start. I will wait in the hall outside the room until just before they start. I'll post what I'll be wearing as soon as I figure it out myself. but my face won't change LOL.  (see the photo on my profile: Brad Co-Organizer) 

Friday: "So they say you shouldn't cosplay" room 310 C-H 1:50-2:40

I will e-mail my phone number direct to those signed up to attend. We are staying at the Rosen Centre hotel next to the convention center all three days.

    I had a great time. This was my 2nd year at this event and it was great. I was able to attend the Torchwood panel and the Sing a longs that night. Sorry i didn't get to meet any of you during this event. Definitely inspired me to buy a sewing machine and get into the cosplay hobby. Anyone else makes their own costumes?

      Yes. In fact, I'll be teaching a costume-making series very soon. Watch for the event-postings to be added to our group calendar...

    Another great event. even bigger than last year.

    I've had some financial setbacks, so I doubt I can afford it now. (Teeth broke, car repairs, etc.) On the off-chance, however, can anyone estimate what kind of contribution for hotel & gas would be needed if anyone has space?

      After much internal debate, I've decided that it would be fiscally irresponsible for me to go to MegaCon this year. I really need to put that money toward car repair before my Serenity breaks down to the point she "can't be fixed."

      Have fun, everyone! Some of my costuming IS attending, so I'm there in spirit! But I'm really glad now that I canceled, because I'm wicked sick. On antibiotics.

    Can't wait to get there!

    I'll be there all three days but in my opinion it's well worth the drive even for one day.

    Is anyone just doing a day trip? A friend that was also going cancelled so now i'm wondering, is it worth it for me to drive all that way on my own...
    Also, I thought you all would appreciate these: PasternakAntiques.blogspot.com - a couple life size Marvel statues that I just picked up!

      Sounds good! I'll def be going to the stan lee q&a. I should be in a long forest green wig with a girl in a long bright red wig. Glasses will remain the same haha. I'm excited! The only other panel I'm certain I'm going to is the one on horror manga at 6 pm on sat.

    I've always wanted to make it to MegaCon, but am curious, for those who have been before, is it all comic / gaming related or are there a fair bit of vendors with toys, collectibles and the like?

    I too will only be there Saturday. May stay an extra day if it's awesome.
