For the first time in the history of the event, Comiccon came to the Nation’s Capital this past weekend, setting up shop at the CE Centre. The response was almost overwhelming and all positive. With sold out crowds Saturday and an almost equal followup on Sunday there is now talk of the event returning again, even being extended to three days. All speculation aside, the event was a major hit and the organizers should be very proud as they pulled off a great con!
In the weeks to come keep checking in to see our full coverage of the event and the costumed characters we encountered there, as well as a couple interviews with some local talent we met on location. Featured among these will be interviews with Steampunk Costume Expert and Seamstress, or “Steamstress” Edith Chartier and the founders of a new local clothing line Robot Punch. All this and more to come from Ottawa Comiccon 2012 & bywardofmouth.ca!
