Ultness Events: Comicpalooza 2013 Coverage!

CP Preview Page

Join Ultness as we navigate Comicpalooza 2013 to uncover all the spectacular activities and attractions of the convention. Over the course of Memorial Day weekend, we traversed three floors of the George R. Brown Convention Center to capture highlights and enjoy many of the fine things Comicpalooza had to offer!  Since its humble beginnings in 2008 at the Alamo Drafthouse, the convention has now exploded to over 20,000 attendees with guest celebs, artists, vendors, and panels to indulge your inner geeky fandom.

This video is merely meant to wet your palate and inform you on what coverage we will bring to you, our fellow geeks.

Guest Celebs & Galacticon

Sacha”TimelessTraveler” scores some interviews with guest celebs like our dear friend Glenn Morshower (24), Sam Hungtington (Josh from Being Human, who explains how he’s not a real werewolf), and Walter Jones (The Black Ranger of The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).  Meanwhile Kristina attends Galacticon and gets some one-on-one time with the cast of Battlestar Gallactica.

Cosplay & Apparel

“MisfitGurl66” interviews professional cosplayers such as Mariedoll, Nicole Marie Jean, and Lana Marie. She then attends the costume competition and learns from one of the judges, Spenser Doe, about how they determine the winners.

Gaming At The Con 

JD “S3prototype scours the floor for all things gaming.  Whether it be video games, table top, or competitive sports, he’s got it covered.  He learns the rules of Roller Derby and gets a lesson on the rigorous game of Quidditch.

Artist Sean “Cheeks” Galloway and Michael Champion give their impressions of Comicpalooza.  We also check out some of the rare and difficult collectibles at the dealer room.
