For the nerds and geeks of Phoenix, Arizona, Christmas definitely came a little early this year, by way of the 2015 Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest! This would be the second year for PCFF in what many hope will continue to be an annual event.
In my recent interview with the hearts and minds behind PCFF it was explained that the vision of the event was to create a smaller, more intimate version of what has become the monolithic event that is the Phoenix Comicon. I’m very happy to report that mission has definitely been accomplished and, at this point, I’d be hard pressed to tell you which convention I enjoy more. Sure, the big event in June is definitely a major happening these days but there really is something to be said for the easier, almost laid back Fan Fest, with it’s breathing room and intimacy. Yes, I know, describing anything taking place on the football field that is the home of our Arizona Cardinals as “intimate” does seem a bit odd but, all I can tell you is; you have to experience the bigger show in June to understand how much smaller the PCFF truly is.
As you’ll see from this gallery, though the event is, at the very least, half the size of Phoenix Comicon, the cosplayers still come out in full force!
