It's been 3 years since I attended my first comic convention, Comikaze 2013. I remember aisle after aisle of toys, comics, posters, cosplayers, fans, props, merchandise, memorabilia, and even several awesome, larger props that were roped off, like a car from Ghostbusters, and even K.I.T.T.!
Iron Men ranging from the size of your palm, to life size figures of the highest quality. For me, these are just some of the many reasons why these pop culture festivals are so awesome, and a few days ago I learned of a new comic con coming to L.A.!
January 14 and 15 of 2017, The Comic Excitement Convention will be coming to the Los Angeles Convention Center. $10k goes to the top cosplayer. (I shoulda been a cosplayer...) The event will focus on comic books, cosplay, anime, horror, science fiction, aviation, and space exploration.
I think L.A. is a perfect place for comic book conventions. "The entertainment capital of the world" indeed.
I promised myself a few weeks ago that this year would be my last year not attending SDCC, so I'm gonna try my best to hold myself to that. But a brand new convention in my backyard certainly doesn't hurt either! Give me all the games! and MTG! and comic book tee's!
Sorry, I'm getting a bit too excited for my own good. I'll be sure to keep ya'll posted as I learn more about this new comic con, and I've got to make sure I bring more than enough money, because these events have just too many awesome things for sale, and I must make them mine!
