Fan Expo Dallas 2021 Wrap – Masked-Up Mayhem
Apparently, there are a ton of Comic-Convention-type folks in North Texas that have missed those events since the pandemic began. Well, they're back, the conventions and the folks.
Donna and I went to Fan Expo in Dallas a couple of weekends ago, it's been a while since we have been to a major convention like this and all I can say is, WOW, what a turnout.
The Mask Mandates were in place in Dallas County for this event as well as any other event in the Dallas area cause, that's what they do in Big D these days, ignore the laws of the State of Texas. Probably not a bad thing overall with that many people in a confined area, it's the whole mandate thing that bothers me. But I digress...
Fan Autograph Booths
The fan autograph area had some good stars this year, there were a few that dropped out for various reasons, COVID being one, but usually, they say "other commitments" as a catchall.
Celebrity faces you might recognize to the right, anime voiceover artists to the left, You'll notice the lines were strong on both sides (below).
Really, huge turnout.
This guys hand-made dragon costume (above), was amazing. leather scales all sewn together, it must have weighed a ton.
You can always tell it's a Pirate Movie when it's rated Arrrrrrrr...
I don't know what it is, but great job.
Deadpool, always the funny guy.
Again, not sure what it is, but I love it.
When cosplayers who are not there together interact and do poses with each other, that's when it gets fun.
The closest parking we could find was a good 5 block walk to the Convention Center. we were pooped by the time we got back to the vehicle.
Overall, it was a fun convention with a huge turnout, the masks were a pain, but oh well, hopefully, we will be way past the mask mandates next year. Good job Fan Expo 2021, we'll see you next year.
