MetroCon 2015 Review

unnamedMetroCon this year was held at the Tampa Bay Convention center, June 11th- 14th. This year it was a 4 days convention changing from last year where it was only three. The venue was spacious, open and brightly lit, with MetroCon being held on two different levels. Registration was held in a large room with plenty of space and dividers. From start to finish the majority of con-goers spent less than 30 minutes waiting in line.

MomoCon Review 2015

It was Thursday afternoon as I got closer to the Georgia World Congress Center that I could see banners hanging from the street light poles “Momocon 2015” which featured an adorable child in cosplay, in the arms of a young lady also cosplaying both looking so happy. I was psyched for this con as I had been wanting to attend it for awhile and finally, I got to. It seemed to have everything I liked about a con, they were family friendly, the cosplay guidelines were just as family friendly, but in reality this wasn’t the case- which is something I will cover later.

Fanime: A Con in Review

This past weekend The D20 Girls traveled to Northern California for FanimeCon, located in beautiful downtown San Jose. Fanime, now in it’s 21st year, has been ranked the fifth largest anime convention in America. Come memorial weekend each year, geeks and nerds from around the world fore-go camping and barbeques, and flock to The Bay to instead celebrate all things anime, manga and Japanese culture related. This was only my second year attending this con, but I can honestly say it is one of my favorites, and I’ve been to San Diego Comic Con.

PAX Prime Badges Sell out In Record Time

Pax Prime 2013  4-day badges sold out in well under 20 minutes this year. The regular single day badges sold out within 7 and a half hours for the rest of the convention. The convention is scheduled to take place in Seattle Washington from August 30th to September 2nd marking it’s first four year. They added an extra day this year so more people would have the chance to go, but with the 4-day badges selling out in record time, many were forced to buy individual passes and spend upwards to $120 plus taxes at face value.

Jack R Stewart

Jack Stewart is the enigmatic owner of the publishing company that runs this website, and the founder of The D20 Girls. Rarely seen in public it is believed that he lives somewhere far away in a hidden bunker away from society prepping for the zombie apocalypse. A gentle and kind soul (unless your undead), Jack is an avid online gamer and Dr. Who enthusiast who spends most of his time wandering the wastelands of the Fallout universe. Some say that Jack doesn’t really even exist and is just a legend that those that work for the organization made up to scare children. But he’s out there, somewhere, waiting for the world to end and working on a way to create an army of weaponized catgirls.
