One of the SouthEast's largest comic book conventions, HeroesCon, took place in Charlotte this past weekend (June 20-22), and drew a record crowd! The 501st Carolina Garrison and the Carolina Ghostbusters were both exhibitors there, and we Ghostbusters got the chance to premiere our "movie mode" cosplays (where we costumed as characters from the "Ghostbusters" film as opposed to just being ourselves). I cosplayed as Egon, and along with our Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Janine Melnitz, and of course Ecto 1, the group seemed to be a huge hit (certainly plenty of photos were taken!). Hopefully we'll have the chance to showcase those again at other events this year.
We also had there the Men in Black car (a replica of the 1987 Ford Crown Victoria "POS", otherwise affectionately known as "Old and Busted"), and our MiB cosplay group also seemed really well received. We'll be exhibitors at future conventions this year--look for us next at ConGregate in Winston-Salem next month!
