A chronological gallery of conventions for all levels of geek!
If you've ever wanted to dress up as Batman or Harley Quinn and mingle with fellow cosplayers in full garb (and why
you want to?), don't worry, you're not alone. There's a convention for that -- several, in fact -- along with conventions for all levels of nerdery, places you can go and get your geek on with fellow science-fiction fanatics, movie buffs, or whatever it is you're into.
Don't like dressing up? That's okay, not all conventions are about costumes and makeup. The Consumer Electronics Show (CES), for example, is a bona fide gadget-fest that just happens to be located in Las Vegas, as if you needed another reason to visit Sin City. The point is, there are all kinds of conventions out there, and we highly encourage you to get out of the house and attend one. To help you plan your itinerary for the coming year, we've put together a gallery of 20 conventions, in chronological order, that you should attend at least once in your lifetime if you get a chance.
Have you gone to any of these conventions? Which ones would you like to go to? Let us know in the comments!
Emerald City Comicon, March 1-3, 2013
If you live in the Seattle, Washington area and like comic books, you owe it to yourself to attend the Emerald City Comicon. You'll find everything from discussion panels to celebrity signings, and even prize drawings. You might even spot a Storm Trooper.
