Calling all cosplayers and geeks, it’s that time of the year again! Con.ect, Port Elizabeth’s annual geek convention, will be taking place on the 4th and 5th of August 2018 at the Nelson Mandela University (NMU) Indoor Sport Centre.
Running from 10:00 until 18:00 on each day, attendees can expect to find numerous stalls selling movie memorabilia and fandom merchandise and can participate in LAN gaming and Dungeon and Dragons sessions. In addition this, local comedian, Roland Gaspar, will be this year’s host and there will be awesome raffle prizes up for grabs. The most exciting events at Con.ect are sure to be the Cosplay Masquerade and Cosplay Competition where cosplayers can show off their costumes and stand a chance to win incredible prizes.
“[This year’s] Con.ect is anticipated to be bigger and better than ever with over 50 stalls, eSports gaming and LANs, tabletop tournaments and sessions, and, of course, our local cosplayers unleashing their characters in the Cosplay Masquerade and Cosplay Competition,” says Alex Karantges, one of the organisers of Con.ect. “This is the place to be. Join us soon for #Conect2018,” he adds.
