Recently I’ve had the opportunity to begin working with the North Alabama Cosplayers Club. This means that I get to go to all sorts of cool geeky events and take photographs. So pretty much my two favorite things on the planet.
The Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo at the VBC is the most recent event I was able to attend. I’m pretty new to the con scene, so it was fun and crazy and fascinating all at the same time. I loved it.
I’m pretty convinced that the people who organized the event knew how to play up the nostalgia factor, since *NSYNC‘s Joey Fatone was there, along with David Yost, the original Blue Power Ranger, Billy. Sitting in on their panels was pretty exciting and brought back the kid in me a little bit.
The amount of creativity and innovation at the expo was amazing. There were so many fantastic artists and other talented people at the event. It was really cool to see all of the ways that people could express their passion for geek culture. I am already looking forward to next year.
