Street Team delves into Fantasticon 2014

Cosplayers, balloon sculptors and comic book fans united at Fantasticon in Mount Clemens this weekend.

The Street Team and The Flash came to take photos with fans, as well as take a bite out of superhero culture.

“It’s an awesome culture to be a part of,” said cosplayer Alloy Ash. “Everybody is so friendly and you get to meet all sorts of interesting people. I love it, it’s very unique.”

The event catered to both hardcore and new fans alike.

“I’ve been a comic book collector my whole life, so I love it,” said event coordinator Joe Nieporte. “And I love the fact that the genre is getting more and more popular with the tv shows like the Flash and Arrow. It’s just getting bigger and bigger and I love it.”

Speaking of new fans, the convention was a great place for younger kids to meet artists and writers.

“It’s great to see kids come up all excited,” said artist Kevin Meinart. “Getting to make a sketch for them makes my day.”

“My favorite thing about writing is it’s fun,” said Roger McKenzie, a comic book writer. “It’s absolutely fun and it’s fun to get feedback from fans.”

Overall, the Street Team had a great time at Fantasticon and they’re looking forward to Fantasticon 2015.
