Don’t put away those Halloween costumes yet; join fellow comic book fans at the Southern Maryland Comic Con! This years convention will be taking place on November 10, 2018 at the Capital Club House from 10 AM – 5 PM. SMCC celebrates all things that are awesome and fun including; comics, toys, TV, film, art, cosplay, games, and all things nerdy.

Southern Maryland Comic Con will be posting there full schedule soon. I was told that Art Way Alliance will be hosting a number of events and sessions designed especially for kids. In years past they have had a kid section with activities and workshops for young kids. There is usually a costume parade and contest for the kids too. The picture from above was from our first adventure to Southern Maryland Comic Con five years ago.

  • Go in Costume- Let your kids pick what they would like to go as. Cosplay is a huge part of the experience, going in costume really makes the trip special and more fun. You don’t have to spend a lot of time or money on them, simple homemade or store-bought costumes are fine.
  • Bring a camera and take advantage of photo opportunities: Taking photos is one of the best parts.  I love watching everyone in costume and I’ve noticed kids and even adults too get very excited about having their picture taken with favorite characters. You will find that there is a huge sense of community and many fans dressed in costume are happy to pose for a shot.
  • Pack Snacks & Drinks: The food at the convention hall is insanely expensive and lines for food can be very long. I suggest throwing some water bottles or juice boxes and some easy snacks like granola bars, string cheese and fruit for snacks. Be sure to eat a good meal before going; while there eat what you’ve packed than head out to a nearby restaurant for dinner.
  • Purchase tickets ahead of time: Pre-sale tickets are $10 ahead of times. Kids 10 and under are free.
