The Con: Rose City Comic Con
The Place: Oregon Convention Center
The Dates 10-11 September 2016.
Rose City Comic Con is Portland Own Comic Con and Media Conventions. I took Chococat with me Friday and Kiju Hello Kitty II on Sunday.
Friday and Saturday: I Went to the kickoff party down town Portland on Friday. I wanted to get to the convention site Saturday without having to wait in line. I got a free beer sample and listed to a songs from a band that was part Rock and Nerdcore rap.
Saturday I got up later than I wanted, head down to the Bear Dinner for breakfast before heading out to the convention center I missed the Behind the scenes : Vintage Tomorrows panels but I did catch my only celebrity panels the Min-Na When of Agents of Shield fame. I was disappointed the host went straight to questions, but MS was still entertaining. One thing I note Ms. Wen’s personality is totally the opposite of her portrayal of agent Melinda May. I just hung around took pictures and caught some of the lip synch battle before getting dinner than attending the Cosplay contest.
Sunday I did the voice actors panel then The Important Of Fandoms panel. I spent the rest of the time buying a sketch of cover art by Keith Tucker and watch my fellow furs have fun fursuiting the convention before Rocs City Comic con chased us out at 5:00pm.
The good having another convention to go to.
The bad: I wash there was more content at the panels, not just the starts but writer of shows and more behind the scenes look. Perhaps a few industry panels.
The ugly: Food prices at the con or as I call it The $9-$10 dollars con. Give me a break. Ok you invited a few food carts, but pleas $9 for a $6 burrito. What with Ninkasi Brewing, I like the free beer ion Friday but $9 pints at the convention and not to be outdone and the Oregon Conventions’ catering was selling 10 oz bottles for $9! at the cosplay contest. To prove my point I got a 22 ounce Total Domination IPA for $3.48 at Winco. What a rip-off.
I was originally going to make this year my last Comic con style convention but I still had so much fun I will be back in 2017.
