Covering the controversial convention one photo at a time.
So to start this review off, let me just say that I was not enthused to attend on Sunday. I made one two three separate posts about this con’s inception in anticipation for what might be experienced. I was still hopeful that it would be an enjoyable experience.
And then I looked at Social Media.

After attending each year since 2011 religiously, it seems the East Coast convention’s magic has worn off on me.

Underneath the announcement in a bold highlighted white is a plea to purchase the remaining Sunday badges still available.
Naturally, I rolled my eyes at this.
