AwesomeCon was a unique experience for us at Tech Void, and we weren’t exactly sure what to expect. It’s not a consumer tech event, and most of the scene revolves around hands-on meta hobbies like trading card games, ink-drawn comicbook art, and beautiful, sexy, and awesome hand-sewn costumes.
Of course, celebrities from the sci-fi films and television were also in Washington this weekend, bringing the characters to life out of their written origins. Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride), Jewel Staite (FireFly), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), and even Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson were nearby. Even Sean Astin, the renowned hobbit, made an appearance. And several Power Rangers? Between the amazing costumes (and there were many) and the plethora of creative materials and artists, it was a brilliant experience to say the least.
Below you’ll find our grand photo album of what and who we saw there:
