This year’s Rhode Island Comic Con was a general success. The Comic Con attendance greatly exceeded the organizer’s expected turnout compared to all prior years. In fact, the Rhode Island Convention Center exceeded their expected numbers compared to all other events… ever! (Nerd pride.) However, the convention was not without problems. You can read about the over-capacity debacle here:
But for now, let’s focus on the other experiences, which were generally positive. The con took place on November 1st – 2nd with a Halloween party the night before (on Halloween). The party was decently attended. I enjoyed the drink list which had tasty choices such as the Ecto-1, the Ooze, and the Beetlegeuise. And of course, it was a great place for the cosplay to begin.
