Now that the start of the new season – and new Doctor – has been announced, are you jonesing for more Who? Yeah you are. Well, there’s a new Con in town, and it’s name is
Reggie Hammond ReGeneration Who. Say thank you to the nice folks.
What’s drawn me to this Con is the idea that it’s a meeting place for all Whovians, from old-school cool to newer series addicts. What a perfect way to meet and chat with folks all over the spectrum. Have you been afraid that you’re not knowledgeable about the earlier Doctors? *raises own hand* Not to worry, everyone’s cool here! Yayz!
And did I mention they’ve already got Colin “The 6th Doctor” Baker coming? Yeah baby.
ReGeneration Who is coming at’cha March 27-29, 2015 in Hunt Valley, MD. Plenty of time to start saving for that life-size Dalek….
Me? I’ma cosplay the 10th Doctor. Hey, it’s cold in March. A trench and sand shoes’ll be perfect.
Read on for the full press release!
