Pros and Cons of Fan Conventions

Kori

Published

on

Elizabeth and Kori are back having recovered from post-con crud after an amazing weekend at ClexaCon! We’re talking cons, from the highs of ClexaCon to the weekend debacle of Universal FanCon, and what to and not to do.

*Editor’s Note: With new information available, we’d like to correct what we’d initially reported for the WICOMICON pop-up event. Universal FanCon attendees with proof of ticket will only be charged $5 for admission.

 

Below are the tweets and threads mentioned in the podcast, and we’d like to encourage you to take a look at the vendors we’ve posted on The Fandomentals twitter account. Please support them if you can after this trying weekend!

Kori is an entertainment writer and Managing Editor at the Fandomentals. In her spare time, she is a Buckaroo Banzai enthusiast, lover of Eurovision, and Yanni devotee.
