Upcoming Conventions »
Today kicks off 3-days of fandom in Philadelphia at Wizard World Philly (also known as Philadelphia Comic Con). Hosted by Wizard Entertainment, this convention is the largest fandom con within the city, bringing in thousands of visitors. Some of the guests headlining the convention are Bruce Campbell, Adam Baldwin, Vivica A. Fox, Julie Benz, Billy Dee Williams, Adam West, and Nicholas Brendon.
Last year, one of my favorite conventions ended up being The Steampunk World’s Fair (SWF). It was brand new, and the first steampunk convention in my area of the northeast, so I knew I just had to attend. I ended up going with fellow Convention Fans Blog contributor Dan Fowler, and we had an absolute blast. We started looking forward to SWF 2011 almost as soon as 2010′s had ended.
This Saturday we were out at The Steampunk World’s Fair in New Jersey. We had attended last year and had so much fun that we started looking forward to the 2011 con as soon as 2010′s was over. Here are some of our favorite pictures from this weekend. You can view all 134 of them over at The Convention Fans Blog flickr account. Expect a full convention report later this week!
