For those of you in southern CA you might want to head over and check out, Comic Excitement Convention. The convention seems to focus on Cosplay, as they have great guest such as Stella Chuu, Dust Bunny, Ireland Reid, Kristin Killtastic, and Tara Cosplay. They even have a top prize of $10,000 for their costume contest.
Although cosplay is defiantly a focus it is not the only one, they have some great celebrity guests booked for the show like Sam Jones, Gigi Edgley, Aron Eisenberg, Carla Perez, and Robert Axelrod! Like any good convention they have some great comic book artist/writers such as Dan Parsons, Richard Dent, Jamie Sullivan, even science fiction author A.C. Hachem will be there.
Along with all the wonderful guest they have announced, like most comic conventions we can plan on see a full exhibitors room and artist ally with lots of products to sell. Some of the artist and exhibitors listed to be there are: 562 Comics, A Fistful of Comics & Protection, AMO Marketing, Inc. / Great Destinations, Baron’s Beauties, C and B Entertainment 2016 Columbia Memorial Space Center, Concon, Confessions of a Zombie Killer Clothing, Vixen DeVille (Also A Guest), Digital Manga, Inc., DDRA Steampunk (Dava Design), Eastern Downpour, Etchart by Brendan Ward, and Fanbase Press.
