Before I delve into the amazing splendor that was Raleigh Supercon, I must give a shout out to my North Carolina con-family: Jenn (Jenna Say What???), Jenny (Goth Mama Cosplay), Stormy (Tiny Villain Cosplay), and Kayla (Travelinâ€™ Chui). You are some of the most kind, wonderful, and sweet people Iâ€™ve ever met and I want […]

Rock stuck with Open Mike Eagle as his one opener, a solid stylistic choice that proved to lend a smooth transition between the two acts.
