TWIZTID‘s own inaugural Astronomicon pop culture convention will take place in just two months in the Metro Detroit area! Astronomicon is an all ages event promising fun for everyone, taking place on February 9-11, 2018 at the Wyndham Garden in Sterling Heights, MI. Each day will include a variety of activities, including cosplay and tattoo contests, a free play game room and tournaments, Q&A panels, a scavenger hunt, insane asylum photo opportunities – and best of all, the opportunity to have photos taken with special guest celebrities!
Recently, Astronomicon announced several new special guests taking part in photo ops and signings, including comedic actor Jon Heder, star of Napoleon Dynamite and other major films, Carla Harvey of massive metal band Butcher Babies, professional wrestling legend Road Warrior Animal, Shameless actress Laura Slade Wiggins, and more! In addition, recently announced guest Rob Miller of Syfy’s Face Off will present his life size Groot, Rocket Racoon and Hulkbuster creations, with Hulkbuster making its very last convention appearance.
Event organizer George Vlahakis adds, “It’s been a dream of mine to set up my own convention. My team and I have been going to cons for many years and I believe we’ve come up with one that everybody can enjoy. We have hand-picked the perfect blend of toys, comics, horror, wrestling and entertainment. We’re huge fans of everything we booked and are proud to officially host Metro Detroit’s newest pop culture convention!”
