ComiCONN fans come out in droves at Foxwoods Resort Casino
ComiCONN "A show for the Fans by the Fans" 2017 is officially in the books. After a full weekend of events and non stop lines, ComiConn staff can now enjoy a much deserved relaxing week for a bit and reflect on the happenings of the weekend. Although we all know in the entertainment business, the work and planning never really ends. I personally was there to cover the event on day one (Saturday) and as always really enjoyed myself.
Fans packed Foxwoods Resort Casino for this event. ComiCONN "A show for the Fans by the Fans" was based out of Hartford last year, so this was their first time hosting it at Foxwoods Resort Casino. Sometimes when an event changes location, you lose a portion of the crowd and that certainly wasn`t the case with this event. Fans lined up through out the entire day to get in and seemed to be an endless line.
Some really great cosplayers came out in droves including some wrestling themed such as CM Punk, Macho Man Randy Savage and Shinsuke Nakamura. We saw several versions of Batman including Con regular (Matches Malone) and his partner in crime Wonder Woman (Kuno Yuro).
There were fans from all over New England and some international fans as well! Nick, Ron and Pete made their traditional Con appearance as sponsors for the Altered Reality Entertainment event.
One thing i noticed on the faces of the fans was excitement and pure joy as they met some of their favorite stars of film and television. The event was headlined by actor Ron Pearlman best known as Hellboy, Beast from the Beauty and the Beast tv series and of course his work on Sons of Anarchy. Ron`s Sons of Anarchy companions were also on hand such as Theo Rossi and Ryan Hurst.
