Tidewater ComicCon is a trade show style convention held in Virginia Beach

We usually attend with a fan table and panels just like most of our other conventions.

Guests this year include:

Steve Blum aka Zeb Orrelios from Star Wars Rebels



Ernie Hudson aka Winston Zeddmore from Ghostbusters



Karan Ashley aka Aisha/Yellow Ranger Might Morphin Power Rangers



John Wesley Shipp aka The Flash

Our former Member Thad Lakowski as Batman



and 4 versions of the Batmobile

Plus a dozen or so comic book artists

It will be at the Virginia Beach Convention Center

https://www.google.com/maps/place/Virginia+Beach+Convention+%26+Visitors+Bureau/@36.8463861,-75.9892738,17z

Friday May 20- Sunday May 22

We should have passes available for those willing to help man the table

I have yet to get the exact numbers from them yet but working on it.


OK, Tidewater ComicCon is only giving us 2 badges for the table! All other members can purchase tickets at 50% off with mention of Rebel Legion. So whoever is going to be my dedicated wingman on the table, gets the coveted freebie badge!


For those coming from afar there is a hotel still available at con rate of 99.00 a night

just go here:

http://tidewatercomicon.com/hotels/

They have double rooms left available, so if you team up you can split the bill. And that hotel is adjacent to the convention center.

But I don't need passes. I donated to the Kickstarter so I'll have passes waiting for me. I can work the table on Saturday and Sunday, but there will probably be a short period of time I'll be dressed like a Ghostbuster...gotta go meet Ernie Hudson! Smile

Who will it be? I just peeked at the list on the con site and no one jumped out at me. I'm guessing a comic writer or artist?

Just an update on pre-event organizing, the convention floor has been filled to max by booths/vendors

as a result they are cutting back on the extra space I had requested for the tantive backdrop.

Depending on if they actually stantion out actual "booths" or not, I may go ahead and put it up behind the table, with just the RL banner up.

We need to keep in mind that no more than FOUR people can be behind the table at any time. This includes if we let any star wars costumers or otherwise behind the table to take a picture

I'm going to try and make it out to the event on Saturday, but I'm not 100% sure if I will make it.
