We Curious ladies will be attending FanExpo Dallas April 6-8 this year. Why is this con special you ask? Well, let us list off the things we are looking forward to.
For a number of years I have been fortunate enough to attend Dallas FanExpo as press. As some of you may know, NC is based in Houston, upstate New York, and Vancouver Canada, so it is difficult for us to cover a region specific convention all together. This year, we are lucky! For the first time, we will all be covering a convention together, and it’s a big deal for us. Not only for our little blog that could, can, and will, but as fans of the nerdom. We aren’t a big press outlet, and with that comes a level of genuine excitement and honesty. We enjoy nerdy things, just like you. Trust me when I say Dallas FanExpo is a fantastic convention, and well worth the ticket price. The guest line-up is insane, and I am so looking forward to the Princess Bride and Charlie Cox panels.
First of all I am looking forward to attending a con that is in a state I’ve never visited before! I always look forward to seeing the cosplay of course, especially since there is a whole lineup of professional cosplayers. Check our previous cosplay coverage from Dallas FanExpo 2016. Perhaps the thing that I am looking forward to the most is the exciting guest lineup. The guests in particular that excite me the most are Paige O’Hara, Jodie Benson, Linda Larkin, and Susan Egan. Disney Princesses! I would also love to be able to see Tom Payne and Austin Amelio (in case you didn’t know how big of a fan I am of The Walking Dead, I have written a few recaps such as the Season 8 Mid-Season Premiere ie. my Homage to Carl Grimes). I’m always checking back to the Fan Expo Dallas website as well as follow them on Twitter to get all the latest guest announcements. I am hoping to see a few other beloved anime guests, such as Bryce Papenbrook and Todd Habercorn, added to the roster.
I think I can say with much confidence that we are all looking forward to meet Disney legends (and princesses) Jodie Benson, Paige O’Hara, Linda Larkin and Susan Egan. We are huge Disnerds after all. What I am also looking forward to is going to a new city that hosts Fan Expo. If you didn’t know, Rach and I have been to Fan Expo Vancouver for the past few years as volunteers and guests (check out our recap here from 2016). So, it would be interesting to see how another Fan Expo city does their thing! And being the Nerdie Foodie, you know I am looking forward to the food stylings of Texas! But most of all, I can’t wait to see my NC (and southern) ladies and Nerdy Gras.
Rachel is currently on adventures in South America, so she excitedly sent over bulletpoints. Make sure to read these at a super fast speed in one breath.
It’s not too late to buy your passes. One day tickets range form $25-$50 for advance purchase, and $30-$60 at the door. The deluxe 3-Day pass is $89 in advance and $95 at the door. There’s also a Family pass for 2 adults and up to 4 kids (ages 6-12) and Child Passes available. If you’ve never been to a convention, and you’re in the area, don’t miss out. It’s a fun experience and if you’re at all interested in nerdy things, this is home. You’ll find your tribe here.
