Andrew Swann, artist M. Alice LeGrow, game creator Andy Looney of Looney Labs, and Cosplay guests Knightmage, Mogchelle and Princess Nightmare, among others. In addition, authors will present workshops and will be available for fans and aspiring authors. Cosplay workshops and costume contests will allow costumers and cosplayers to “show off their work, get new ideas and learn new techniques.” The Philadelphia-based band This Way to the Egress and local Cleveland belly dance troupe Les Odalisque will provide the entertainment. The convention runs through Sunday. Weekend memberships are available at the door: $50 for adults and $25 for kids. Day rates range from $10 to $40. (Niesel)
