Another Successful Mobicon Weekend in the Books
This Memorial Day weekend, super-fans, gamers, and friends from all over the “galaxy” gathered at the Renaissance Riverview Plaza Hotel in the welcoming downtown Mobile for another successful fundraiser put on by the Mobicon Foundation. Mobicon is a not-for-profit charity and multi-genre fan convention where like-minded creatives share a passion for fandom and community. The money earned goes to help local Gulf Coast schools participate in STEM organizations. They also have an auction where 100% goes towards the Mobicon Foundation Charity Program.
Inside the convention halls there were special guests, panels, artist alley and my favorite event, the cosplay contest! Click here to see the Facebook live video at this year’s 2019 Mobicon cosplay contest.
I really enjoyed seeing the hard work of all the cosplayers. The way they included different level categories such as, “Novice,“ “Journeyman,” and “Master,” made it possible to get involved even as a beginner!
Gaming is also a huge part of the convention. They have tournaments, board games, role-playing games, LARPs, war games and more.
The Gulf Coast CW was proud to help spread the word about the fun at this year’s Mobicon. We hope the winners of the Gulf Coast CW’s Mobicon Pass Giveaway had a terrific time, too! Congrats again to the viewers who won:

As the GCCW star, I had a great time doing a cosplay of Cheryl Blossom from The CW’s Riverdale. Want to see my work? Hangout with me over on Instagram and Facebook to see more of my Mobicon adventures. Or, check out my personal blog. Until next year!
