Castle Fan Convention Was a Major Success

By Chelsea Banks

It seems lately that if there’s a fandom community, then there’s someone making a convention for it. However, most cons focus on an entire genre and are so massive that it leaves little time to truly appreciate any one thing. So it was extremely refreshing to go to the completely fan-made Castle Convention. It also felt good going to something where over $10,000 was raised for charity.

Though you can feel a bit lost and disconnected in the mammoth kaleidoscope of nerdom that is Comic-Con, the attendees of the Castle Convention were undeniably united. The way everyone, strangers, laughed with each other over inside jokes, made the unity almost palpable.
