Report: 

During the weekend of June 10th and 11th the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT held the Altered Reality Entertainment's annual ComiCONN "A Show for the fans by the Fans". This was the first time that Foxwoods Resort Casino located in Mashantucket, CT hosted this event. 

There were a lot of great guests from all the different genres of entertainment. We got to see actors, writers, artists, and wrestlers. There was also Cosplay groups for V, Star Wars, Goonies, Stranger Things, and Ghostbusters. Speaking of Cosplay let's not forget all the great cosplayers on hand showing off the craft and fandom.  In the main hall there were a variety of vendors and groups with booths filled products and information. For those into panels there were plenty of those throughout the convention where fans could see their favorite guests up close and hear what they had to say about various topics. For those looking for a chance at romance there was Sci-Fi Speed dating. This seems like a great way for single people to get to meet others who have common interests even if there is no love connection you could get a new friend out of it.

Make sure to check out our coverage of the Herofied and Crocs booths as well as the "Dark Lords of the Sith Gather" panel. 

I will admit I wasn't sure what to expect when I first heard that ComiCONN would be held at a casino. It had been years since I last visited Foxwoods and didn't know that it had grew to what it is today. I think the staff and volunteers for both ComiCONN and Foxwoods Resort Casino did a great job for this event. The staff was friendly and answered all my questions. I liked how the ball room was set-up I didn't feel crowded walking down the aisles.The conference rooms that held the panels were big enough to hold lots of fans the stages were well lit and the video monitors were very helpful for fans in the back of the room. The cosplay area was very spacious as well and allowed for the various groups to set-up and interact with the fans. The Kid's Con area had a lot of things for the kids to do.  

I am definitely looking forward to seeing what the folks at Altered Reality Entertainment have in store for 2018. We want to thank them for the press passes we received they were greatly appreciated.
