Comic convention invades Safety Harbor – Safety Harbor Connect

FusionCon 3, the very first ever comic convention in Safety Harbor, saw everything from professional wrestlers to Star Wars characters fill the Safety Harbor Community Center on Saturday, April 29, 2017.

For a few hours last weekend, Security Harbor set aside polarizing concerns such as lot obstacles and parking issues, post workplaces and keeping poultry as family pets to focus its energy on issues affecting a galaxy far, far away. On Saturday, the Harbor was gotten into by superheroes and aliens, Star Wars characters and battling legends, as the city hosted FusionCon 3 at the Security Harbor Neighborhood. And by all accounts, the city’s very first ever comics convention was considered a success.”I’m delighted to have the

first show in Security Harbor, “promoter Mark Karoftis told Safety Harbor Link throughout the seven-hour show.”The kids all have smiles on their faces, and everybody appears to be pleased with the show. I think it’s gone effectively.

“FusionCon 3 founder Mark Karoftis is interviewed during the event on Saturday, April 29, 2017. Karoftis noted he took pleasure in having

a great working relationship with city officials, staff and merchant companies in getting the event off the ground.”The city enjoyed to have us,”he stated, including,”the leisure services personnel and individuals at MOSH and the Chamber were extremely supportive.”He said regardless of some common first-time-event bugs, the experience was positive sufficient to call for a return to town.”The city was very delighted to have us. Everybody was very practical and supportive,” he stated.”I absolutely wish to make this an annual event as we turn the websites between here and New Port Richey. “If responses from the

FusionCon3 suppliers and attendees is any sign, a return to the Harbor would certainly be invited; everyone we talked to appeared to be enjoying the colorful sights, distinct sounds and total oddball pageantry that are hallmarks of comic conventions. 6-year-old Zoe Allen of Wesley Chapel takes pleasure in FusionCon 3 in Security Harbor on Saturday, April 29, 2017. As they made their way from one side of the neighborhood center to another, passing cubicles stocked with art work and souvenirs, tee t-shirts and more Funkos than you can shake a lightsaber at, David Allen, who was with his spouse and 6-year-old daughter, Zoe, said he liked the size and scale of Security Harbor’s first comic

convention.” This is Zoe’s first one, so we wished to be smart about it,” Allen, who is from Wesley Chapel, stated.”We didn’t wish to bring her to among the bigger occasions like MegaCon for her very first time, and she’s just caring it. It’s extremely well organized, there’s lots of area between cubicles to get around, and there’s an excellent range.

Depending on what you’re interested in, you’ll absolutely find something you’ll like here.

“While princesses and Poekmon, pixies and Predators strolled the 75 +cubicles, socializing with artists like Mark Texeira and Austin Janowsky and pro wrestlers including Lanny Poffo and April Hunter, one exceptionally popular character held court over the proceedings. George Lowe, a Clearwater native and long time voice actor who is best known for his function as Space Ghost on Animation Network’s Grownup Swim, might have been seated in a faraway corner of the FusionCon galaxy, but his irreverent humor and biting wit was on complete screen, much to the pleasure of his legion of fans.

Harbor Recreation Center on Saturday, April 29, 2017.”When people ask me what I think of these shows, I always inform them they have three things in common– they smell like cold sweat, stagnant pizza and farts, “Lowe, who presently resides in Lakeland looking after his ailing mother, deadpanned.”However seriously, this has actually been a great event,”the longtime convention

veteran added.”It’s been a little sluggish for me, honestly, because people would rather see superheroes in leggings conserving damsels in distress.

However I have actually delighted in being back here in the Clearwater location, although I didn’t acknowledge Security Harbor when I was can be found in. Holy cow, when did all these mansions go up? When I used to live around here, this location was a dump! Aside from that, absolutely nothing’s

changed.”At that point, a guy named JR, who said he owns a comics store at Westfield Countryside mall, approached Lowe’s booth with a mix of marvel and awe. As he selected an illustration for the legend to autograph, JR discussed Lowe’s influence on his life.” I matured viewing Area Ghost when I wasn’t expected to be viewing it, “he said of the notoriously risqué, adult themed animation.”He’s the reason that I liked Space Ghost and why I love comics and why I got into the comic shop organisation.”

“If it wasn’t for George, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”Enjoy this picture gallery of some of the vibrant sights at FusionCon 3 at the Security Harbor Community Center:
