(11.3) Celebrities, artists, cosplay, geek speed dating, photo ops, tattoo pavilion, portfolio reviews, and lots of panels. This weekend Rhode Island Comic Con takes over the RI Convention Center. I don’t know enough about comics, gaming, and wrestlers to comment on how well they have been represented this year, but I do know my tv/movie celebrities and this is an amazing crop. Cast members from the original Star Trek, Stranger Things, Walking Dead (Steven Yeun!), Mayans, Game of Thrones, Elijah Wood, Chevy Chase, the Grouch, Richard Dreyfuss, and Patrick Warburton!
Schedule: Friday — 3pm to 9pm/Saturday — 10am to 7pm/Sunday — 10am to 5pm.
(Thursday, Halloween night, at Prov Place Cinema: Screening of Nightmare on Elm Street with Robert Englund.)
There are both kid and adult cosplay competitions. Here are some guidelines:
No nudity. No profanity. For safety reasons the following isn’t allowed: projectiles of any kind (darts, pellets, or even water), aerosol spray, pyrotechnics like fire, smoke, or fireworks.
And who wouldn’t want a picture with George Takei? Go here to check out the Photo Ops.
