This year on April 28th, I went to the Medford Comic Con at the Jackson County Library at the 205 S Central Ave, Medford, Oregon.  It is an annual con that has been growing larger and larger in attendees each year. It features a cosplay contest, fanart contest, an art corner, and food trucks. The library isn’t even able to hold everyone coming anymore, so the con has spread to the local buildings and streets.  Just last year, a few workshops were held in the RCC building across the street from the con.

Almost everyone going in is costume as their favorite characters, so I went as Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter. I went to the Sunday event with my siblings. When arriving to the con, you see several costumed people, dressed as their favorite characters from such things as shows, anime, cartoons, movies, comics, and games. This year, there was a photo-shoot for Marvel and DC characters. There was also a Harry Potter themed area in the kids library. You could make your own wand, drink butter beer and try Bertie Bott’s beans for free, get sorted, and win a book for guessing how many dragons are in a box. I already had a wand, but I replicated it and my sister named it “Little Draco.”

In the Art Corners, there were many, many, fantastic artists and things. There were fan-artists(realistic and cartoon styled), OSF(Oregon Shakespeare Festival), Barnes and Noble, Astral, Handcrafted soap makers, Comic sellers, Art stores selling supplies, CW, and The Armory. I got a Ryo(Devilman Crybaby) fanart pin and some artist pens. I didn’t get to see the costume contest, but I heard it was great.

Overall, the Comic Con this year was very fun and it was a great success. Luckily, it was smaller this year, but it was still very well populated. You should go the con next year if you think it’s your cup of tea, because I bet it will be as great as this year’s and the year’s past. Thank you for reading.  I can’t wait for next year!
