I know you guys have heard of Saratoga Comic Con before but there’s a ton of new stuff to expect this time around! First of all, it’s the 5th year celebration, which doesn’t even seem real. Goes by so fast! I went to the first show and so much has changed since then.
To promote the first Saratoga Comic Con (at the time it was called ChaseCon Expo) free wristbands were handed out. I was lucky enough to snag one, so I checked it out. The show’s expanded by at least 5x what it was then, and even at the time it was a good show. Since then I’ve gone from covering the event to being a cosplay guest, so Saratoga Comic Con really helped me grow my cosplay career and meet a lot of the community.
A BIG DIFFERENCE this time around – more panels! (hey, make sure you make it to me & Midnight Rogue’s Sailor Moon panel on Saturday) There’s scheduled events and things to do the whole weekend, and the after party is going to be truly outrageous!
Tickets are available online or at the door, though I’d check out the website for more info because you can get discounted or group tickets! ❤
See you guys there!
For more information, I’ve included the press release about the event below!:
