RI Comic Con All Weekend

[This just in! The Providence Journal reports that Carrie Fisher is a little under the weather and will not be coming to The Con this year. Bummer. BC]

(11.8) Con planners and Convention Center management promise there will not be a repeat of last year’s unpleasantness. Tickets were oversold as if this event was just like the flower show with people cycling through. But Comic Con fans have a tendency to linger and hang out and parade about and pose and stay and stay and stay. Organizers promise things will run smoothly this year.

Events include: Gaming and After Parties. Halo, Call of Duty, etc. with prizes.

Photo-op sessions with Hellboy Group, Walking Dead Group, as well as Henry Winkler, Ralph Macchio, and Ron Perlman is all over this thing.

Cosplay — Please read the cosplay policies. No real weapons like crossbows and water pistols, and no overly revealing attire. If you are asked to cover up, please comply.

Autograph signing — A Bill Fagerbakke is gonna cost ya $40; other artists have not declared and will apparently see what the market can bear.

The panel schedule includes a ‘Cosplay Wig Styling’ workshop, ‘Ride Along with Sons of Anarchy,’ the ‘Voices of Sailor Moon,’ a Q&A with Ron Perlman, and ‘A Celebration of Carrie Fisher!’

Actor, writer, producer Carrie Fisher is a Hollywood legend. Her best selling books have been adapted into acclaimed films. She has played a multitude of roles in her epic 42 years in entertainment, but none are as well known as her portrayal of the heroic Princess Leia Organa in the Star Wars original trilogy films – a role she is reprising in the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens sequel releasing this winter. She will be live on stage with guest moderator Clare Kramer talking about her journey and giving you an inside look into her amazing career.

Holy crap! Carrie Fisher is in town?!
