Hey everyone! This weekend I attended the 2015 Geek’d Con that took place in Shreveport, Louisiana. This was probably my favorite convention I have attended this year. It was held at the Shreveport Convention Center from August 21-23 and I went on the 22nd. Although I was only there for one day, SO MUCH happened and I met many great people and had a great time.
I went with my friend Mihika (which you’ll see later) and we got advanced tickets. It’s good we did because the line was long, but everyone get in super quickly.
The first place we hit up was Corset Punk, a business that makes beautiful goth and steampunk corsets.
Next up was Bricks 4 Kidz, a place where you could play with Legos and of course Mihika and I said “what the hell why not” and stayed there for about 15 minutes.
The cosplays I saw this year were fantastic and creative as well. It was awesome trying to guess who everyone was.
I can’t believe I saw a Daft Punk cosplay, this person is amazing.
I got a lot of photos and ran into lots of cool people, so if you want to see more click the link!
Here are some of the vendors that were there.
The last three photos are of Black Cat Studios. They make steampunk jewelry, seasonal art and decor (which mostly leans towards Halloween.)
Some photos of the crowds.
More wonderful accessories by Guineveve’s Gems
Artwork by Voodoux Tattoux. They were also at the Louisiana Comic Con back in Feb I posted about.
Mihika and I met this gorgeous cosplayer, Poison Ivy.
I ran into Jerrad Vunovich again (we first met back in Louisiana Comic Con in Feb.) Seriously a really rad and sweet dude. We talked about some of his upcoming projects and events. I’m definitely keeping an eye on him in the future! I always turn out so weird in photos. I never know what to do with my face or hands or anything haha.
Dennis Robin II, creator of a comic book in the making called Gwen Tells. A fantasy story about a little girl and her stuffed animal that enter different worlds together. It’s also going to be a video game and cartoon that Dennis has worked on all by himself. I saw a preview of the game and cartoon and it is SO RAD. The cast is diverse with many awesome characters. I’m keeping an eye on his projects. The little girl in the bottom right is cosplaying as the main character, Gwen.
I love the Lolipop Chainsaw cosplay (left).
Of course I was going to hit up the Fangoria stand. Brian Steward (who I also saw at Louisiana Comic Con) is a writer for the magazine, a filmmaker, radio host, and artist.
More things I forgot to mention. I was able to demo a new game by Imp House called Chaos of Cthulhu. It’s a very cool dice game. It takes time getting used to but when it comes out I’ll try to get it along with their other games. Here are some of the things I bought.
It was a good day.
There is a con coming up in Houston I am going to try to attend in a few weeks. Who knows what will happen.
