MegaCon 2015

The Comics, Sci-Fi, Anime, Gaming, Horror, Fantasy, and Cosplay Convention

April 2015

MegaCon 2015 Orlando Florida

MegaCon Orlando is the ComiCon of the Southeast.  It is a huge convention for fans of Sci-Fi, comic books, anime, video gaming, and all related genres.  Cosplay, or dressing as your favorite characters, is also a huge part of MegaCon.

Held annually in the Spring, MegaCon takes place at the Orange County Convention Center located near Orlando on International Drive.  Hotels surrounding the convention center sell out weeks before as attendees and vendors from all over the country converge for this incredible event. 

The official page for this event is located here on the MegaCon website.

MegaCon outside the show floor
Before the massive main Show Floor opens, attendees mass in the outer room.

MegaCon is so huge that there isn't enough room on the main Show Floor for all exhibitors.  So, some spill out to the outer room as well as areas around the convention center.  Typically, the larger exhibits such as Lego and Star Wars enthusiast groups are found in the outer room.

Nearby, the 501st Legion has a huge display area every year.

The 501st Legion is a massive network of Star Wars fans who spend considerable time and money putting together their own personal storm trooper and other imperial costumes.  Organized into garrisons by location, they participate in conventions and charity events.
