My Time at BlerDCon

It was BlerDCon's first year and I didn't know what to expect.

Little did I know that it would be one of the most fun events I've ever been to. After attending cons in NYC (New York Comic Con), in Wasington DC (AwesomeCon, WEX), Harlem (Schomburgh Comics),  Atlanta (Treklanta), and more places that I can count I was pretty sure I wasn't going to be surprised . . . but I was.

It was the most friendly and inclusive event I've ever attended. I saw few growing pains for a few time con (though I knew they were there) and every person I brought to the Con throught it was amazing as well.

I spent the entire three days taking photographs, making videos, and doing interviews. I sought out everyone I could find for photos, especially cosplayers. For interviews I focused on authors and comic book artists . . because they're cool.

This was the first Con for my friend Darrell and he reminds me all the time about how much he owes me for introducing him to BlerDCon. You'll see him in a few of my videos below.

BlerDCon will come around again next summer. Get your tickets as soon as you can!!!
