Ok....there is no Con called October Con that we could all attend......but I got your attention. This coming month of October marks the home-stretch of the cosplay season for 2019. I will of course be working on next years list and as always, if you guys hear of a con not listed, let me know so I can add it to out ever growing list.

So this coming month has some big and some intimate cons that we should all make an effort to try and get to. All the cons are broken down by Regiment to make things easier for you to find a con to attend. So here is what is coming up:

*** I will be posting on this thread again and again as a reminder (you will get sick of me, I promise) till months end. And don't forget to take pics and post. We all want to see and hear about your Con adventures!!***

Coming up in the local area we have some stuff that's going to be getting individual threads in the next week or so when we confirm a few things.

Pacific
Jet City Comic Con
October 26th-27th
Tacoma WA

Canadian
The Geek Retreat
October 11th-13th
Vancouver BC
This one is weird since it may or may not happen since it's a knee jerk community effort to save VCON from contract penalties since the con has been cancelled for the 2019 year so other convention organizers are banding together to use the space and make something fan based. Updates will follow as they appear.
