All-Con is a great convention held in Dallas every year in March. It’s a bit different from most Sci-Fi and Comic Cons. It’s a smaller venue than some of the more prominent ones. Without question, the greatest feature of this convention is always the community. For many who attend, All-Con is one big weekend-long family reunion. Back in 2007, All-Con was my first convention, so I was very excited about returning this year.
Saturday was the busiest day of the convention where most of the incredible artisans, cosplayers, and other enthusiastic and talented folks have the opportunity to share their passion through panels, competitions, and other events. Fleet 31’s Lizzie Lynch, who is a talented makeup artist, presented an excellent panel about sci-fi, cosplay, and special effects makeup. Lt. Commander Zander Price and his lovely wife Moogle had a booth running the whole weekend where they sold hand crafted bead artwork. Also, several members attended an enormously fun session of Star Trek Jeopardy. The end of the day was filled with some of the best photoshoot experiences we’ve had yet, so stay tuned for updates as the best of these pictures come through.
All-in-all, it was an absolutely fantastic weekend full of unforgettable memories and lifelong friends. Here’s looking forward to another great one next year!
