Hello my dear friends! It is another week of school. Do you feel bored of the regular school-dorm life, and want to have some fun in the two-dimensions world?
Luckily, Purdue Student Union Board, or PSUB, has heard your voice, and they are holding the third Annual Purdue BoilerCon on February 18th in the ballrooms of Purdue Memorial Union.
The event will start at 12:30pm, and will last until 6:30. It is a FREE event, so you can come and go and enjoy the comic con atmosphere right beside your dorm building. No need to drive to Chicago, isn’t it convenient?
As a member of Purdue ACG Association, I went to the first BoilerCon in Spring 2015, but I did not go in 2016 because I had another event on that day. From my personal experience and the feedbacks from my friends and colleagues, BoilerCon can be considered as the largest ACG event on campus.
The traditional parts of Purdue BoilerCon include performances, cosplay contests, photo booth, gaming booth, and different tables for all kinds of ACG-related goodies. This year, PSUB has invited two voice actors, Paige O’Hara and Richard White to the event. If you are not familiar with them, Paige played Bell in Disney’s classic movie Beauty and the Beast, and Richard played Gaston in the same movie.
Besides these two famous voice actors, Team Starkid is also invited to the event. Team Starkid is a musical theatre company located in Chicago, and one of its most famous productions is A Very Potter Musical, which is a parody of the Harry Potter series. If you are interested, you can follow this link to Starkid’s YouTube channel and check out their productions.
Have you been to the past BoilerCon? What do you think about this event? Please leave your comments down below, or send me anything you would like to discuss about. Also, feel free to send me ideas that you want me to write about! I will go to the BoilerCon this year, so probably you will find me and talk to me. Looking forward to seeing you there!
