    We (Philly FF) aren't sponsoring or involved in the con, but I thought it would be a lot of fun to go and hang out.

    I will definately be there. I may even "dress" for the occasion.

    Anyone else interested?

    I'm a horror fan, so I'd definitely be interested.

    I'll see everyone that PM'd me tomorrow.
    We're still meeting up at the spot we agreed on.

    I'm not sure if we're still gonna dine out or not. We'll see what happens.

    See ya there!

    Joe

    Woo Hoo! We had a blast at this one. The only downside was parking was impossible. I don't think the Hilton had any idea of what to expect.

    Lots of blood, beer, and fun. Exactly what we were planning on. Here's some pics from the con. I would've taken more, but I was preoccupied with my shopping spree (got myself a copy of the original "Night Stalker" on DVD and snagged the clone wars cartoons on DVD).

    It was a lot of fun. I found one vendor with the infamous SW Holiday Special. He was under the dillusion that it's worth $20. I asked him if he was gonna pay ME $20. to remove it from his sight. lol

    I even managed to find some items for one of my costumes. Hehehehehehe.

    I had a great time. Didn't buy any Star Wars stuff. Got a Jason Voorhees bobblehead and a few tee-shirts. I looked for the guy selling the SW Holiday Special, but couldn't find him. Guess he found a sucker....
