Today is the second day of Hal-Con Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Comic Convention at the Scotiabank and World Trade and Convention Centres and this year, Hal-Con is bigger and better than ever: the trade-show is located in the Scotiabank, there are gaming, pinball and arcade stations, there are panels and contests and tournaments and, of course, celebrity guests, like John Rhys-Davies (Lord of the Rings) and Amber Benson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer). As a result, Hal-Con is really amazing this year. As always, my favourite part of Hal-Con is the cosplay (the costume contest takes place Sunday afternoon at 4:30pm). Since it's also Halloween today, I was delighted to go and see so many awesome players. Hal-Con 2015, congrats on ruling!
