If you happen to live in the Netherlands, or if you are nearby, it’s March again! This means that Heroes Dutch Comic Con is back. If you don’t fancy spending your Easter Weekend with your family, but want to meet great actors and be among pop culture lovers instead, this is the event you need to go to. For the past few years I visited DCC and I always had the best time. Every single year the convention also grows bigger and bigger. This is a great development because it shows that there was a need for a convention like this in the Netherlands. If you’re thinking about visiting, let’s take a look at what you can do:
Meet Special Guests
Every single year the convention manages to get great guests for their Q&As and meet and greets. My favourite in the past was Oscar Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter series. This year is no exception. Emilie DeRavin from Once Upon A Time, Zack McGowan from the 100 and Katie Cassidy from Arrow just to name a few.
One of the things I love about DCC is that they have an amazing merchandise area where you can shop till you drop. You can find everything from clothing, to figurines, to whatever your heart desires. I especially love shopping for Funko Pops! even though I always tell myself I don’t need any more. But it is a great opportunity to also find collector’s items. And there is also plenty to eat, so when all the shopping made you hungry, you can always stop for a quick bite.
Play Games and Experience Pop Culture
Major companies such as Fox, Disney and Warner Bros will be present. This means you can watch episodes of shows such as the Walking Dead or take a picture with Deadpool. But there will also be a Millenium Falcon to celebrate the upcoming release of Solo. For those who love to play games, do not fret. There will an entire area dedicated to games. You can enter the Tekken tournament for example or play Dragonball Fighterz. You will definitely find me at the Pokémon Go stand. I mean, even at conventions you have to aim to be the very best.
Many visitors will also be cosplaying as their favourite characters. If you fancy going in cosplay, think about entering the cosplay contest! Of course we will be there to take pictures of our favourite cosplays so if you see us, come and say hi! We’d love to see your costumes.
Will we see you there?
