Everyday Fangirl at Fantasticon S3-EP6

  

FANTASTICON is a regional, mid-size, show created for comic book and pop culture collectors and fans. My sister, my husband and I were able to attend and experience part of this event on Sunday, November 8. Although Saturday’s are usually the best day to attend these types of events, Fantasticon still had plenty to see and do, even on Sunday.
