Recap of ExpectoCon 2018
ExpectoCon made its magical debut during the August 17-19 weekend of 2018. Our special guests for the weekend were Stanislav Yanevski (aka Stan Ianevski, who starred in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"), Ernest Gary Gygax Jr. ("Dungeons & Dragons"), Samantha R. Crossland (fashion designer), Bryan Donihue (author of "Knights Bane" trilogy), and Kari Lewis (cosplayer known for her likeness to Hermione Granger/Emma Watson).
Our panels were designed to be classrooms for our wizard school, a fictional one created for ExpectoCon known as "St. Cyprian's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry". We had interactive dragons, wand stations (which includes one for sorting into houses), themed restaurant menu, shops, game room, costume contest, and an evening prom.
Remember that Hodag that greeted you in the Registration area of the atrium? Special thanks to the Ouisconsing School Of Collaboration for lending this hodag created by Claire Morgan.
Did anyone say Butterbeer? These were select items off of our themed menu.
There were 2 game rooms running throughout the weekend. Guests had a choice of either joining in on tabletop gaming or sign up to go against the Dungeon Master Ernie Gary Gygax, Jr. for "Dungeons & Dragons".
Special thanks to Lauren Taylor TV for letting us share her ExpectoCon experience with us. 1 vlog was created for each of the 3 days.
