Fantasticon 2014 – Part 1: A Taste of the Con


I spent last weekend (October 24-26) with my friends at Fantasticon in Milwaukee, WI. My friends are veterans of going to cons, and they invited me to come along for the ride. Being the first year of this con, none of us* knew how it would go.

It ended up being an awesome time! Instead of cosplaying, I stayed mostly behind the scenes taking pictures of the cosplayers and anything I thought was interesting.

It took me a while to sort through all the images, but I finally did. There were so many pictures, that I will spread them out in six different posts.

Being the introductory post, this will include a few pictures just to give you a taste. NaNoWriMo begins Saturday, so I don’t know when the next post will be. Check back soon to find out!

It’s the TARDIS! I’ll just peek inside. Nobody will mind.

It wasn’t bigger on the inside. They lied! I will show my dissatisfaction by devouring it.
Who’s that lurking behind me?

EXTERMINATE!
