The Phoenix Comicon is the annual preeminent event in Arizona for geeks, freaks and nerds, (we’ll let you decide where you personally fall within those titles), and this year’s event was one of the biggest and best yet!
With a final attendance tally coming in just shy of 80,000, PCC is quickly shaping up to be one of the largest Comicons in the United States, make no mistake, they’ve come a LONG way baby! Congrats to all those involved for their continued and growing success!
A few of our favorite highlights from this year’s festival include:
* The amazing panels, featuring some of the biggest names in the biz; Stan Lee, Bruce Campbell, Nathan Fillion, John Barrowman, (all hilarious and engaging in their own unique ways). Not to mention The Bat-Reunion featuring Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman), it was an amazing treat to hear and see them all sitting together again!
* Cosplay is one of the most important aspects of any Con and this year’s did not disappoint. The trends are always interesting to witness. The most popular cosplay characters for the girls this year included Poison Ivy, Calisi (Game of Thrones), Anna/ Elsa (Disney’s Frozen) and Maleficent (from both Sleeping Beauty and the 2014 film of the same name). For the guys it looked like Spiderman was still a very popular choice, (a tough costume choice in 110 degree heat, we have to admire their commitment!), Dr. Who, (yet another challenging choice given the temps!) and, of course, Superman! The usual suspects included a handful of Slave Leias, Catwomen, Jokers and Captain Jack Sparrows, (and why not? We love these costumes and characters as well and it wouldn’t be a real Comicon without you guys, never stop!)
We’ve barley recovered from this year’s event but we’re already looking forward to May 28-31st 2015!
Live Long and Prosper Phoenix Comicon and thank you for another great year!
