David Tennant, Stan Lee, Jason David Frank, and more stars flocked to the nation’s capital for the fifth annual Awesome Con.
Father’s day weekend was celebrated with the Father of Marvel and Doctor #10 as geeks from all walks of life flocked to the district. As with all years, the exhibit hall was filled with rows upon rows of merch, art, one of a kind trinkets, and a few well known vehicles. On one end was a star studded autograph area while on the other was the Stan Lee Museum featuring all your favorite costumes. This year’s convention was the biggest one to date, bringing out flocks of fans who wanted to snag a moment or two with their favorite stars, head over to the gaming room and spend time perfecting their craft, or laugh their asses off at John Barrowman’s panel. (He didn’t disappoint).
Whatever you were there for you were able to find, and then some. Awesome Con is known to bring together the nations geekiest crowd and amongst that crowd love is abundant. So much so, that Saturday kicked off with a wedding in full cosplay. Wonder Woman (Megan Mattingly) married Deadpool (Adam Lee Merica), showing that love concurs all. The happy couple, who met at the same convention a few years prior wanted to share their love with their fellow geeks. Darth Vader and co put aside the dark side for a moment to officiate the marriage.
The wedding was a cosplay studded event with bridesmaids taking on DC roles and groomsmen favoring the Marvel universe. The room was packed to watch these love birds commit their lives to each other in a beautiful ceremony. Photos taken by Enelay Creative.
As with all conventions, cosplay is predominate allowing fans from every genre to display their talents and passion. This year was no different. The costumes were spectacular.
As always, the cosplay was stellar.
Until next year. Awesome Con 2018 will be March 30th – April 1st.
