The Grand Rapids Comic Con opened tonight (Friday, Nov. 21) with lots of fun, some awesome cosplay, and appearances from lots of great actors, actresses, artists and more!
Taking place all weekend at the DeltaPlex in Grand Rapids, MI, the GR Comic Con is host to Nichelle Nichols (Lt. Uhura, Star Trek: The Original Series), Golden Age artist Allen Bellman, Mighty Morphing Power Ranger David Yost, vehicles like the original and latest Batmobiles, Speed Racer’s Mach 5, and so much more!
The opening night featured a few panels, including an exclusive anime screening, along with appearances by a long list of celebrities, a children’s cosplay/costume parade, vendors and just a lot of geeky, nerdy, comic-y fun. The DeltaPlex was packed all night – which is a good sign that it will be filled to the brim when things really get going on Saturday.
Among the most popular cosplay characters at the Grand Rapids Comic Con were Marvel’s Avengers characters, Doctor Who characters, a lot of people dressed as Deadpool and Spiderman, as well as Transformers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and anime characters.
