After missing DragonCon Labor Day weekend and San Diego Comic Con in July, I was having some major FOMO. This past May I attended my first con with Comicpalooza and I absolutely loved it. It’s definitely my kind of place!
BUT, Houston FanFair is totally helping me feel better about missing out. Have you guys heard about Houston FanFair? Basically it’s a mini Comicpalooza and I have to say, right now the lineup is looking pretty amazing! On September 19-20, geeks all over Houston will unite. What better way to celebrate the Doctor Who premier weekend than with Missy herself?
But maybe my favorite thing about Houston Fanfair is the Battlestar Galactica celebration. It’s the 10th anniversary of the reimagined series (the better version, in my opinion) and they are bringing four fantastic cast members to celebrate. I’ll spare you guys the long version of the story, but I’ve been waiting to meet Aaron Douglas for about six years and I’m FINALLY going to be able to meet him!!! Chief is my favorite character on the show, and Aaron seems like such an awesome guy. (Did I mention that I got a call from him four years ago? My friend met him at DragonCon and she knew I loved him. They ended up calling and leaving me a voicemail. I won’t reveal how many happy tears were shed that day…)
And if you’re not a Whovian or BSG fan, there are other guests that may tickle your fancy! Check out the entire guest list, including Carlton from Fresh Prince. (*does The Carlton dance*)
The best part? Admission for both days is only $25 and two kids under 11 are admitted free for each adult ticket purchased. Good deal, huh? Guests who want to attend Comicpalooza 2016 can purchase combo passes at a discounted price. I highly suggest you do so if sci-fi is your thing!
