When it comes to MechaCon, you have to see it to believe it. With a slate of unique events, it remains an outstanding addition to the con community.
And with a number of big names at this event, you’ll feel like a star yourself. For one, Aaron Dismuke of Blood Blockade Battlefront will be there. So will be Richard Epcar of Ghost in the Shell, Mortal Kombat X, and Street Fighter. Still, Kaitlin Glass is a must-see addition, known best for her role in Fullmetal Alchemist.
But MechaCon has plenty more lined up to make this event a hit. For example, there’s electronic and tabletop gaming to keep you challenged. Even a 24 hour gaming event! There’s also panels, presentations, and workshops, so that you can learn more about the scene you love.
Yet, events like the scavenger hunt, the Red Carpet Affair, the charity auction, and the mind-bending cosplay make this con extraordinary. And then there’s the J-Fashion Tea Party and the MechaMaid ClubHouse for even more fun. Throw in a bunch of vendors and many passionate fans, and you have an event that’s worth of the con community!
