Nola Nerd Couple is not going to Megacon this year, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. If you are in the central Florida area, go! It’s a great con with plenty of guests for autograph seekers, artists, and vendors.
Tom Felton and Jason Isaacs will be there along with the Phelps twins for the Harry Potter fans. Trekkies will be able to meet William Shatner, George Takei, and Nichelle Nichols. Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes will doing a special stage event on Saturday night. For you NOLA nerds, they will be in New Orleans on Wednesday. John Cusack will also be there, but since I won’t be it hurts too much to talk about. I mean, I try to be Lloyd Daubler on my better days.
One of the main reasons that you should go is to meet Stan Lee. He is one the comic book greats and if you are an autograph collector he should be in it. It is still amazing that at 93 he attends three days of a con. However, it seems that his con days are coming to an end, so get his autograph while you can.
Of course, there are plenty of artist, panels, shopping to do at Megacon. We always come home full of stuff. We highly recommend that you stop by Mrs. Nola Nerd Couple’s sister’s booth: Geekella. She is a fantastic artist and has great pieces for you to buy. We have quite a few of her works at Nola Nerd Couple Headquarters. We also highly recommend Purrito Press for your nerd art needs. Both will be located in artists alley!
Megacon opens today at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando and runs through Sunday.
Have a happy con!
