Con of Thrones 2018 w/ Esme Bianco, Sibel Kekilli, Hannah Murray & more

If you've never been to a Comic-Con (what are you waiting for?) essentially it's a market & trade show - at it's base, it's just one big store. All the vendors gathered together in one convenient place. To get the fans to come shop, the convention books stars (past & present) for Q&A's, autograph sessions & photo ops etc

 

Con of Thrones - May 25th-27th - Hyatt Regency Hotel - Dallas, TX

The Good & the Bad of Con of Thrones is unlike say Star Wars Celebration (which we covered in 2015 in Anaheim) where the event is created by the Star Wars organization (& to this day still the most organized & enjoyable con I've attended to date) & done so well.
Rather this entire event is fan generated (which I was unaware of until I arrived).

However it's also what makes Con of Thrones so special & because of it, their are so many unique ways to stay entertained throughout the convention. If autograph sessions with Thrones cast members isn't enough to satisfy your fandom (due to filming the current season, none of the main cast were available)  you can talk about more trivial themes, sing karaoke, duels (with foam weapons, of course), and much more. Some shoddy planning & absurd ticket prices aside this was still alot of fun.

There were some really great panels featuring the specials guests throughout the weekend that were fan-programmed as well.

Cosplay 

With so many characters to choose from, Game of Thrones offers a plethora of ideas and concepts for fans to embody. But at the Game of Thrones convention, the cosplayers took their outfits very seriously. It's always the fans that make up the heart & soul of any good convention.
