A couple of weekends ago, Chris and I took a ride up to the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington, MA to check out the Northeast Comic Con. You see, we are both nerds at heart and big fans of pop culture events like this.
The NECC featured fun things like cosplay, costume contests, video game competitions, celebrity guests/autographs, panels, and over 100 vendors of vintage and modern toys, comic books and other pop culture must-haves, along with over 50 Artists and Authors. I got quite a bit of my Christmas shopping done while I was there because there were so many unique products for sale there.
When Chris and I first arrived, we scoped out the celebrity guests, which included:
- Marky Ramone (The Ramones, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee)
- Billy West (Futurama, Ren & Stimpy)
- Nicholas Brendon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Criminal Minds)
- Butch Patrick (The Munsters)
- Leah Cevoli (Robot Chicken, Deadwood)
- Gary K. Wolf and Charles Fleischer (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Rango, Back to the Future)
- Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story)
- MacKenzie Lintz (Hunger Games, Under the Dome)
- Mike Pollock (Sonic the Hedgehog)
- Tom Wayland (Pokemon, Yu Gi Oh)
- Christopher Judge (Stargate SG-1, X-Men: Evolution)
- Paris Themmen (Mike TV from Willie Wonka)
- Mike Zohn, Evan Michelson and Ryan Matthew (from the cast of Oddities, Obscura)
- Kayli Mills and Peter Bernard (from Those American Girls).
