From Our Editors
A fan likes a show. A member of a fandom, on the other hand, needs to know more about the story, the characters, the characters' flossing habits, and the art than the creators originally give them. Celebrating that desire to dig deeper is Florida Fandomania, an annual convention that connects fans with each other and their heroes—whether real or fictional—during a weekend of panels and signings. Read on for a few of Fandomania's fandom favorites:
- Celebrities: Expect to see voice actress Brina Palencia (Black Butler, Dragon Age: Origins and Summer Wars), Dahlia Legault (The Walking Dead), and voice actor Eric Stuart (Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh!).
- Fandomania Mayhem Bash: At this Saturday-night party con-goers can mix and mingle with guest celebrities.
- Cosplay Karaoke: Costumers compete for most creative, most technical, and best in show outfits.
- Professional Panels: Sessions provide tips on everything from cosplay cosmetics to entering the field of voice acting.
- Concerts: Rock out to J-pop sensation Chii Sakurabi and other J-pop and punk performers.
