If you have been reading NolaNerdCouple.com the last couple of weeks, you will have noticed that we are excited about the Louisiana Comic Con. The more nerdy events in our area, the better. And any reason that gets me to Lafayette is a good idea.
The con will be held September 16 and 17 at the Cajundome. Saturday’s hours are from 10 am to 6 pm, and on Sunday the con is open from 10 am to 5 pm. It’s $25 for a single day pass, but you get a great deal if you buy weekend passes for $40. If you have a military id, you can purchase at the box office in person weekend passes for $25. Children ages 2 to 10 will only be charged $5, but also must be bought in person.
There will be professional photo ops which will be done by Wolf Studios Photograph. We have had them before, and they do a great job.
The con still is adding great guests. For me, the most impressive guest addition is John Russo. Mr. Russo is the co-writer of the screenplay for the Night of the Living Dead. He will also be appearing at a showing of The Night of the Living Dead on the 16th at the Louisiana Immersive Technologies Enterprise theater and will do a question and answer session afterward. This event is an after hours event and costs $5. Also, if you go their guest web page, you will see some of the prices for autographs, selfies, and photo-ops under each guest.
The Official After Party will be held at The Studio Downtown with 106.4 Radio Lafayette.
Hope to see you there! Well, maybe not the after party, we are kind of old! But you may catch us at The Olde Tyme Grocery after eating the best shrimp po’boy on the planet.
