March 2012 Convention Recap

Posted in: UpcomingCons
As we approach the end of March, we come to the true beginning of this year's convention season. With almost a hundred conventions of different types happening this summer, it is going to be one of the best convention seasons ever.

Before we start posting about the cons happening this summer, let's take a look back at some of March's conventions. Under anime conventions we had the second-annual Shuto Con, in addition to reviewing Kawa Kon. Those are just the one near us in the Midwest: elsewhere we had A&G Ohio, Kawaii Kon in Hawaii, MomoCon in Georgia, and a smattering of others. We'll also be ending with Anime Detour which I may get to attend. Anime Detour has been around in Minnesota for the past decade, and it now draws over 4500 people to the Bloomington Doubletree hotel in Minneapolis for all kinds of events.

Some notable sci-fi conventions included Omnicon and MidSouthCon among many many others. It was announced that Comic Con is having a badge sale again for the people who had already signed up in hopes to get a chance for a badge. I also read story about the official Dr. Who convention featuring a tour of the set of the Tardis. That con was March 24-25 in Cardiff (Wales, England). If I had a ton of money, I would have loved to participate, considering I've seen all of the new Dr. Who, and I am looking into the old ones as well.

That's most of what happened. There were also a few other cons across the world, though this summer is when the action really picks up.
