A look at Eucon 2015

 

A buzz of enthusiastic fervor emanated from the Lane Events Center last weekend as thousands of fans (we hear more than 9,000) intermingled at Eugene Comic Con, aka EUCON, a two-day celebration of comics and pop culture. A collection of Lord of the Rings characters posed outside the building on Saturday afternoon, entertaining a long line of people eager to acquire tickets to the spectacle. Inside, artists, vendors and writers filled the room, selling works of art and merchandise spanning multiple genres; cosplayers milled about, dressed convincingly as Princess Leia, or Batgirl, or Doctor Who, or steampunk badasses with mechanical wings; people took art classes and posed for pictures with celebrities and a replica of the TARDIS. In conclusion: We’re already counting down the days ’til the next EUCON.

In this video, by Craig Garcia for Eugene Weekly, Chris 51 owner of Area 51 Tattoo and co-creator of "Epic Ink" on A&E and Jessica Dwyer Owner of Fangirl Magazine talk about the inaugural Eucon.
