Yes, I’m fully aware that this article is woefully late, but we’ve been BUSY. The weekend prior to this year’s PAX East I had the opportunity to check out one of Florida’s biggest conventions, the Orlando MegaCon. The number of cosplayers at MegaCon has increased exponentially over the years, and I have to say that this year’s show had more costumes than ever before. Even if you’re not a cosplayer yourself, you have to admire all the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into building some of the costumes you’ll see below. Here is quick look at some of the costumes of MegaCon 2013.
A few weeks ago we talked to Ashley Eckstein who plays the awesome Ahsoka Tanno on Star Wars: The Clone Wars. By the end of the interview we were incredibly excited for Disney’s all new Star Tours. While details Star Tours are still scant, here is what we do know. The new ride will be using James Cameron’s 3D technology (yes still with glasses), you will tour at least three different Star Wars locations: Bespin, Alderon, and Endor. Promotional art shows other well known locations such as Hoth and Coruscant.
If you live in Florida there are also some promotional events coming very soon to get you ready for hyperspace travel.
