As the year 2010 comes to an end, I would like to say that this has been a great year for me attending conventions. Let’s review some of the highlights.
MegaCon 2010: This was a huge turnout, particularly for the sci-fi genre with stars like Robert Picardo, Kristanna Loken, and Lea Thompson.
Vulcan Events 2010: Over in Tampa was a convention devoted to Star Trek. The main stars I met there were Tony Todd and Christopher Lloyd, who also each had a Q&A.
BotCon 2010: Next up was a convention devoted to the Transformers franchise, which was an even bigger turnout than I expected. I met voice actors Scott McNeil and Paul Eiding, as well as singer Stan Bush.
Nerdapalooza 2010: It’s not actually a convention, per se. This was a music festival with creatively comedic artists like Rappy McRapperson and Kirby Krackle, who sing about things related to convention genres like sci-fi, superheroes, video games, even D&D fantasy.
Anime Festival Orlando 11 2010: This convention was definitely a good one. It was more of a Power Rangers convention. I met some voice actors and Power Ranger actors. David Yost also had an excellent Q&A, which was one of the most favorite things I did.
Star Wars Celebration V 2010: Now here was a convention that I knew would have a huge turnout. There were many areas with Star Wars exhibits and memorabilia. I also got to meet some of the stars from the franchise like Jay Laga’aia and Mark Hamill.
Spooky Empire 2010: Then came another great turnout at this horror convention with stars like Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, Tom Towles, Linnea Quigley, and Danny Trejo. There were also great presentations about horror in video games and Disney’s Haunted Mansion with author Jason Surell.
This was a great year for conventions. I enjoyed writing about them and sharing my fun. Happy New Year, everyone!
