Long Beach Comic Expo 2017
This last weekend was Long Beach Comic Expo at the Long Beach Convention Center. I was excited this weekend because I was talking on a panel. I have been a moderator on panels but I had never actually talked on a panel. So that was my excitement this weekend. Sadly I was so sick during the week that I didn’t get a chance to finish my Lydia Deets cosplay
The con is one of my favorite in the area because there are so many cosplayers and I like the layout of the Long Beach Convention Center. It is such easy access for both the convention hall and for photoshoots with cosplayers. I also love that all my friends show up to this show so it really makes the show for me.
There are a lot of vendors who sell toys, a section of artists in artist alley, a x games style play area, a really cool science area for kids. Then different small comic publishers and a magic the gathering game area. There was even girl scout cookies. I definitely bought a box of tagalongs. They were so very delicious.
Outside there were lots of star cars outside and lots of places for cosplayers to take photos. There were panels of all types for people to attend. There was a fashion show and a cosplay contest. A hawkman and hawkgirl won best in show at the cosplay contest.
