XCon World is back! The annual convention, for all things wonderfully geeky, returned for its ninth annual appearance.
As with previous years, XCon World 9 has its share of positives and negatives. As shown by the photos here, there were numerous cosplayers, covering characters from comic books (Harley Quinn and Deadpool were the most popular characters), movies and television shows, anime, television shows, post-apocalyptic mutants, video games, Pokemon, and more. (A robotic Dalek and R2-D2 could also be seen zipping around the convention floor.)
The general area was expanded since I was last there, and that provided plenty of opportunities for both shopping and browsing. Lots of artists and authors were selling and promoting their own works. Local stores and groups were present, offering everything from toys from the 1980s and 1990s to posters, comics, t-shirts, jewelry, and medieval weaponry.
