It is that time of the year again! Yes! Comicpalooza 2016 is here. So grab your Stormtrooper helmet and hang on to your space boots because the sci-fi fandom is in full swing from June 17-June 19.
Houston, we have no problems! Comicpalooza is here bigger and better than ever, offering the best multi-format pop culture con in the southwest including J-Fashion, cosplay, film festival, literary conference, a code fest, maker space, Mars Rover rides, video and tabletop gaming, BMX stunt show, professional wrestling, roller derby bouts and MUCH MORE!
My son and I are Starwars crazy! (yes, it’s called good parenting people) He is 10 years old and he breathes, eats, and dreams Starwars. So I can’t wait to take him this year! A little boy’s dreamland.
Some of the special guests this year include Sigourney Weaver, known for her lead role in Aliens (1986), for which she was nominated for the Academy Award Best Actress; Alien 3 (1992), and Alien: Resurrection (1997). She is also known for her starring roles in the box-office hits Ghostbusters (1984), Ghostbusters II (1989), and Avatar (2009).
Another special guest I am really looking forward to meeting is the super awesome Sean Patrick Flanery from The Boondock Saints and his “other half” Norman Reedus. I cannot wait for this duo’s reunion (did somebody say, Fangirl moment photo op?) Norman Reedus is also known for his recent role as Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead.

There are lots of cool family-friendly activities and adventures, including a dedicated Children’s area offering activities such as Create-A-Comic : Children’s Area and a Hero Creation : Children’s Area. Also, cool for all ages is the Quidditch Tutorials : Sports Arena Say what? Yes! you get to see and learn how to play this Harry Potter-inspired game!
We are LEGO obsessed! Therefore, we can’t miss the Lego Club Meetings! After our visit to Legoland last summer our passion for Legos has just intensified! We have, I dare to say, almost all of the Lego Starwars collection. Which is why we can’t miss the Lego Club Meetings at the Children’s Area. These meetings are a place to meet other club members and share your building skills. There will be a set Mini Build, the story about the Mini Build, Lego trivia and games, free build time, and show and tell. Lego Club Meetings are for children ages 4-12. Each Club Meeting Could accommodate 30-40 children. Each child attending Lego Club Meeting will receive: -One Mini Build set -A box of Pick a Brick -Lego Club Magazine -Lego Club Meeting name badge -Lego Passport with a sticker sheet.
