At this years Wizard World ComicCon in Chicago fans from different aspects of life, came together to celebrate a world of fantasy, superheroes and imagination.
There was everyone from Harry Potter fans, to Back To The Future fanatics at the convention, and although they shared a passion for different aspects in pop culture there was a definite connection between everyone. We wanted to ask a few different fans there, what their favorite part of coming to Wizard World ComicCon is and what it means to them.
I started going to ComicCon a few years ago and I have never felt more accepted somewhere. I don’t have to hide who I really am, and that is one of the most amazing feelings.
My favorite thing is meeting people who share the same interests as me, you can make a lot of new friends here.
Coming here gives me a sense of normality, like I actually fit in here
We met and talked to nurses, doctors, retail workers and their answers were all very similar. This gives them a place to come and let their passions and imagination run wild.
My life can be pretty hectic and stressful, coming here is almost like a vacation for me!
Walking into the Donald E. Stephens convention center, you could feel the sense of togetherness and the welcoming feeling it brings is something we will never forget.
Thank you to everyone who helped put on Wizard World ComicCon Chicago. Thank you to all the fans we talked to and those who shared their story with us.
