This past weekend my family and I had the pleasure of attending Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con. This was our second year attending the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con and we had a blast. There truly is something for everyone at this convention; celebrity panels, booths selling comics, toys and other superhero, sci-fi, anime related items and lots and lots of geeks.
Here are three great reasons to attend Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con:
1. Cosplay (amazingly fun dress up for grown ups)
Who doesn’t like dressing up? Here’s your chance to act your alter ego. My husband and oldest daughter channeled their inner Whoovians while my youngest went as Minecraft Steve.
We ran into a few other Doctors on day two too!
2. Family fun!
This event is great not just for grown ups but the whole family. My kids had a great time and there were lots of amazing things for them to do. There were tables set up for coloring and crafts, LARPing and other activities, like shooting Storm Troopers! Additionally Symantec had a large Superman branded truck set up on the floor with a great interactive game for kids, and adults to play.
3. Amazing Events!
Although there is lots of interesting eye candy, events and booths with items for sale, one of the best things about Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con are the various events and panel discussions. In pervious years we have seen all of the Star Trek Captains on stage, this year we saw discussions with various actors from The Waking Dead (Norman Reedus, Jon Bernthal and Michael Rooker), John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Arrow, Torchwood) and others.
Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con is a great time for adults and kids alike! We’re already looking forward to next year.
