Report: 

Over the weekend of August 18th-20th Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Uncasville, CT hosted the annual TerrifiCon aka CT's Terrific Comic Con. This three day event was in the spacious Convention Center inside the casino.

There were guests from various genres such as Star Wars (Jessica Henwick), Game of Thrones, (GoT - Finn Jones), Guardians of the Galaxy, Batman TV show (Burt Ward and Lee Merriweather), Louis and Clark (Dean Cain), Arrow, Stranger Things (Shannon Purser), Ths Flash (Violett Beane), and Gotham (Benedict Samuel). 

This show was a tribute to the late Adam West Batman from the Batman TV show. There was a Batcopter, Batboat, Batmobile, Batcycle (in the food court), Robin's Go-Kart, and other Batman memoribilia from the classic TV show. 

Author and friend of the Collector's Cantina Ryder Windham was on hand taking donations for the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. If you donated $5 or more on Sunday you received a limited edition "May the Force Be With You" button courtesy of the Charlito Project. It was great catching up with Ryder again.

The convention center was divided into three parts the "lobby" was the place to be to get celebrity autographs and was a great place to meet up with friends and take pictures with cosplayers. The Ball room was where you could find vendors such as our friend at Herofied, artists such as Joe Corroney, Copper artist Jackie Stier, and was the weekend home of the Batman museum with the Batboat, Robin's Go-Kart, Batmobile, BatCopter, and other memoribilia. The third section was where the conference rooms were and that area had the cosplayers, panels, gaming area, and prop company The Witch's Dungeon..

This event was a fun time I got to see vendors I have never seen before with some great products, saw vendors I am familiar with, etc.

Overall this was a great show. It was my first time going to this event and the first time I was at Mohegan Sun for a convention. I wasn't sure what to expect when I was driving down on Friday afternoon. It was a nice show that was ran. The layout of the convention was good and they used the space well. There seemed to be plenty of room in the aisles to move around I didn't experience all the bumps or tight spaces that I would have expected. I think this show had a little something for everyone who attended.

Looking forward to seeing what is to come for next year. Next year the convention will take place August 17th-19th at Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort.
