Magic City Con 2017

This convention gets bigger every year. I have to honestly say that it was the best yet for me and we have been every year since it started. The two ladies that are mostly responsible for Magic City Con are Jamie Phelps and Rita Houston. Every year up until now we have gone in Cosplay. This year we were fortunate enough to have a Fan Table for Autism Awareness and R4. Total new and fantastic experience for us. Magic City Con was held at the Winfrey Hotel in Hoover, Alabama. The Winfrey was taken over by us. Cosplayers, vendors, featured guests, marketing teams… it was fabulous.  Some notable organizations that were there this year were The 501st Alabama Garrison with Jedi training, photo ops and they also did a Galactic Academy Breakfast for our little Cadet Jedi’s. The 405th Southern Regiment of the Halo Costuming Community was in attendance as well with an outstanding booth setup. From my understanding, they did some recruiting of their own for some Spartans.  There was Shout Out World some of the most hilarious people you will ever meet.  They do lots of charity work with kids and do a wonderful job. And Affliction Cosplay Photography who do amazing….did I say AMAZING… photography… If you haven’t already done so go check them out on Facebook.  The staff was wonderful and always eager to help. The atmosphere was pure GEEK!!! Yep, us geeks took over the Wynfrey inside and out. The dealers room was heaven. The Fan table area was so much fun.
Without a doubt, Magic City Con scored 10/10 stars for me. If you missed it…don’t worry! There is always next year.
