    Feb 11, 2018, 10:00 PM - Will anyone from the RPF be at MetroCon 2018 (Tampa, FL)? #1

    As the thread title states... will anyone be attending? I plan to be there with my cosplay this year. It will be my very first con.

    When I used to live in St. Pete, I went to a few MetroCons. It was fun. They did a good job with their cosplay chess events.

    Are there any details about this. I have been to a few comic cons in tampa. I go for the vintage toys and look for the Star wars booths from the 501st. However, I found the tsmpa comic con to be growing more into newer stuff and becoming way too hectic. The last one I went to had very little vintage toys and the 501st didn't attend.

    MetroCon is an anime-centric con: http://metroconventions.com/

    You may have more luck at MegaCon: http://megacontampabay.com/ which is a more general SF/geek-ery show.

    There's also a huge MegaCon in Orlando: http://megaconorlando.com/

    Or the Tampa ComicCon: https://tampabaycomiccon.com/

    Assuming my coworker doesn't get me sick, and I have my wits about me, I'll keep an eye out for you!

    Change of plans. I might be going today again after all, provided I can find parking.
