PCX & NECC in the News
Fans of Adam West (Batman, Family Guy) and Kevin Sorbo (Hercules, Andromeda) are invited share a VIP experience with two legendary superstars celebrating anniversaries of their first TV episodes. Both fan experiences are just one element of the largest celebration of popularculture in New England, the Northeast Comic Con and Collectibles Extravaganza.
Are you seeking an escape from the real world into the fantasy of cosplay (costumed play)? A fundamental part of any comic con is cosplay, the opportunity to dress up in imaginative costumes representing a guest’s passion for pop culture – whether the costume reflects a character from a film, TV show, video game, comic book, or Japanese anime/manga.
A smorgasbord of diversions is on tap at the Pop Culture Expo at Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington. Play vintage pinball machines, see Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s 1998 NASCAR vehicle, shop for collectibles, compete in costume contests, and attend a “Game of Thrones” panel with Kristian Nairn (he plays Hodor) or a VIP party DJ’ed by Nairn. Tickets start at $15, with additional fees for some activities.
As robots have become part of our Pop Culture vernacular, The Expo will make the public premiere of the Alderbaran robot “NAO” (pronounced ‘now’) designed to assist children with Autism. With the discount code PCXNAO — $5 from every ticket sold will go to help fund the purchase of a NAO in New England schools with Autism programs.
