If you haven’t heard about Dallas Fandays then you either live under a rock or you need to turn in your “Nerd Card.” Growing from a small toy show in 1994, it has gone on to become the premiere convention in Texas for fans of all ages. This year is going to be even bigger and better than last year with a guest list that will make any fanboy or fangirl giddy with anticipation.
There was some concern with how things were handled last year when a larger than anticipated crowd descended upon the Irving Convention Center, but this year steps have been taken to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. You’ll want to make sure and read home page under “Quick Facts” and “A note to our fans:” so that you don’t get caught with your shields down once you arrive.
As always, there seems to be more guests than I have time, so I’m going to have to plan ahead. For most people, the addition of a third day to the schedule will help them in doing the same. In fact, I’m tempted to go all three days myself. The guest line-up is a dream come true! I love Stan Lee and Bruce Campbell, but I have a feeling that Felicia Day will give them a run for their money! If you, also, don’t know who she is you need to catch up. Felicia is a gamer/crafter/producer/fangirl who has made a name for herself in the industry and the creator of ‘The Guild,’ an online web series about gamers who connect in the real world. She has gone on to create with Wil Wheaton the ‘Geek and Sundry’ channel on Youtube. Take time to watch her and I’m pretty sure you’ll become a fan, too.
