And NexCon strikes back with a vengeance! We had so much fun last year that we decided to drive ourselves nuts and hold another one 😛 Welcome to NexCon 2: Heroes Rising!
So what’s happening this time around? Well for one thing, we’ll have Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo, the fantastic guys behind Trese in Tales from the Diabolical, a special panel moderated by Hank Sparrow the Bartender himself! Hank may or may not serve alcohol during the panel.
Then there’s Tagalize THIS!, a panel showcasing the work and talents of our local dubbers. You’ll get to meet the Filipino voice of Dean Winchester! 😀 And if you’re a fan of a certain British science fiction TV show, you might want to join in the live dubbing of a certain pivotal scene.
Into cosplay photography? We’ve got that covered too! Jin (behindinfinity), Miguel (merkymerx), and Resh (Reskiy) of Tux Team will hold a free panel on how they go about their cinematic cosplay photo shoots. Their most famous work is their Big Hero 6 series, which went viral and was featured in BuzzFeed, Kotaku, and Comicbook.com.
Feeling competitive? NexCon 2: Heroes Rising brings out the bloodier side of fandom too! There’s going to be GeekFight! Battle Royale (the bloodshed!),
and Lip Sync Kombat,
and the Take Cover cosplay photography contest!
Did I mention that kids three feet tall and below get in for free?
I hope to see you guys this weekend! It’s going to be fantastic 😀 <3
