I must say, this was the first time to attend this convention, but it won’t be my last! I loved the atmosphere, it felt like a celebration (or a party). This convention had such a great vibe to it. And that was with me not being able to attend the later shows that were not geared toward the younger folks (in other words All-Con after dark).
In addition to the celeb panels and costume contests, there were workshops, game shows, and discussion panels (which I participated in one – special thanks to Rick Gutierrez of United States of Geekdom for the invitation). The dealer’s room showcased sellers of different tastes. It truly deserves the name All-Con, it was all-encompassing.
The only (minor) problem that I encountered was getting our badges opening day. However, that’s to be expected for the opening hours of an event. The guests said they had a great time, the dealers were doing well, and the attendees that I talked to had a blast.
Not only are The Fellowship going back next year, we hope to do some panels, discussion groups, game shows, or whatever. We want to be more a part of this experience. It will be their 10th anniversary so that should be a fun experience. Keep up with the latest updates by checking out www.all-con.org.
