With 473,000 square feet of exhibit space and an estimated crowd of 50,000, Awesome Con took over the Washington Convention Center this weekend. Over three days, fans met stars like William Shatner and Kevin Eastman, browsed through merchants’ stalls, watched artists make their work, and attended gamers’ panels. Even R2D2 was rolling around. The highlight was seeing everyone dressed as their favorite characters, from Lego Avengers to the Green Lantern.
