First year under a new name brings big names

Posted

The name might have changed this year, but Denver Pop Culture Con was as brash and big as ever. Taking place at the Convention Center from May 31 through June 2, thousands of geeks, nerds, collectors and fans turned out to honor the writers, artists, actors and creators who have brought geek culture into the mainstream.

Famous onscreen performers from Doctor Who, "Guardians of the Galaxy," "The Magicians" and "Back to the Future" were on hand to take photos and sign autographs, and hundreds of booths allowed for shopping, collecting and connection with fellow fans.

As is always the case, one of the main draws was cosplayers, who impressed with tributes to expected characters and series — plenty of Doctor Who, Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Marvel — as well as some delightful surprises like some choice "Big Lebowski" characters, several different species of dinosaurs and Barf from "Spaceballs."

Dusty and Shaun Pack and Katrina Kendall came all the way from Wyoming to enjoy the con and showed off some seriously impressive Dragonball Super cosplay.

"Last year was around Father's Day and this year's con is right at the end of the school year," Dusty said. "It's a great way to celebrate."
