I did not have an enjoyable experience at last weekends’ Tampa Bay Comic Convention. It was my first time going, and from what I understand it was significantly larger than it was last year. It was even moved to a much larger venue, from a hotel to the Tampa Bay Convention Center. However, they did not properly utilize the size of the convention center for this particular convention.
This past weekend was the event all Central Florida [and beyond]-based nerds look forward to all year long: Mega Con! Unfortunately I work Friday and Saturdays, so I was only able to go on Sunday. From what I hear, Saturday was completely packed, so I guess I’m alright with missing all that mess… though, the best costumes are usually saved for Saturday. What I love most about Megacon is indulging in your favorite fandoms with like-minded folk, letting your nerd flag fly. It’s all so exciting: the costumes, the shopping, and the celebrity appearances! What I don’t like about Mega Con are the crowds, which is another reason I was fine with only going Sunday.
