There are thousands upon thousands who go to MomoCon every year, and each has their own reason for attending the four-day celebration of gaming, music, costuming, comics, visual arts and voice acting.
For D’Andrea Seabrook of Dunwoody, it started as a lifelong passion for Halloween and all its trappings — specifically, the delicious anticipation of planning and executing the perfect costume.
“I’ve always been that kid who couldn’t wait to dress up as my favorite character for Halloween,” Seabrook said. “It was amazing to learn that (at conventions like MomoCon) you could actually celebrate Halloween throughout the whole year.”
Seabrook – who has been attending the convention since 2008 – is dressing up as the main character from a Japanese anime series at this year’s 15th annual MomoCon, scheduled for May 23-26 at the Georgia World Congress Center and Omni Hotel, where she will join an estimated 38,000 other fans of Japanese anime, American animation, comics and gaming.
