One of the highlights this year will be a guest appearance from actor Malcolm McDowell, who will have a booth at the Crystal Garden on the Saturday and Sunday. Best known for his leading role in A Clockwork Orange, McDowell earned further pop culture cred with his roles in Star Trek Generations and the two Rob Zombie Halloween remakes.
Also appearing will be Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Marina Sirtis, Star Trek: Voyager actor Garrett Wang and WWE Hall of Fame wrestler Jake “The Snake” Roberts.
Attractions will include a used.ca Chill and Charge Lounge, the Curse of the Blood Ruby puzzle room, performances from the Geekenders Theatrical Nerdlesque troupe, cosplay repair stations and appearances from groups such as the 501st Legion, Ghostbusters of BC and Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club.
The Cosplay Contest will also hand out awards to the best dressed in a variety of categories including novice, master and closet cosplay, where the costume has to have been put together using items already owned.
