This past weekend Ray and I (and many more friends) made our annual trek to Orlando for MegaCon! MegaCon is a large comic/cosplay/fan convention. This was my 4th year attending. I only took a few iphone snap shots this year, but you can see photos (taken with a real camera) and read about past years here, here, here, here, here, and here.
This year, our group had a table in artists alley where we promoted Infinity Con, our friend David sold his short story, and I sold a few art prints. I spent basically zero time prepping but ended up selling more art than I expected to!
Here’s a commission I did 45 minutes before closing time on Sunday.
My favorite experience from Megacon 2016 was attending a Q&A with Elden Henson, who stars as Foggy Nelson in Dare Devil. I’ve been a fan of his since he played Fulton Reed in Mighty Ducks! Because we were vendors at the con, we were able to get preferred seating at all the panels and Q&As – which means we ended up with second row seats to see Elden! He was outgoing, funny, and had a great rapport with the audience. We saw a lot of costumes, met up with old friends, hustled Infinity Con, networked, ate a bunch of Mexican food, walked 230948230948 steps a day, and slept very little. It was great! If you ever get the chance to attend MegaCon, I suggest you take it! Even if you’re not into nerd life (because I’m really not), it’s such a great experience!
