Please excuse me, because I can hardly contain my excitement for this.

FantastiCon will be making a stop at the Birch Run Expo Center, October 8-9th and I am so freaking excited! If you are not familiar, FantastiCon will feature tons of comic books, toys, collector items, original art, and some special guests will stop by as well. The special guests that I have heard that are making an appearance are: SFX makeup artist Daniel Phillips, Comic book artist Scott Rosema, and actor John Armijo. Among other guests that will lead various talks and demos of their craft. Also, in attendance will be the Great Lakes Ghostbuster Coalition, Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club (international STAR WARS™ costuming organization) and an Optimus Prime Replica Transformer Truck will be on display. There will be various cosplay contests with prize money for the best and most original ideas.

Personally, I am looking forward to scoring some original art and geeking out because Optimus Prime will be there too. I went to MotorCity Comicon and I am looking forward to spending way too much time and money at FantstiCon. Now the only question is, should I bust out my Lynda Carter era Wonder Woman costume? Yeah, that might happen.
