We'd like to give you a chance to show off your handiwork, so bring your favorite GB props to display in our prop room 6:30-10:00 p.m. Friday. The room will be guarded.Really? Now we're intrigued.
Ecto Con is almost exclusively about the Ghostbusters movies, cartoons, comics and video games. We will also have some programming related to '80s pop culture, prop-building and tales of the paranormal. This is not a paranormal convention. The "Ghostbusters" in attendance will be fans of a comedy movie franchise and NOT ghost hunters.
Who are your guests this year?OK, that's clearly just a corny joke, and not repressed geek sexuality. Right?
We do hope to have at least one special guest. It will probably be someone related to the Ghostbusters comics.
Can I pet them?
We will have autograph signings. You may pet them if they give you permission.
Can I pretend to be busting ghosts in the con hallways?
Be careful with that. Remember that the straights are also staying in this hotel. Don't scare them! Pretending to be Ghostbusters and posing for pictures in the halls is great, but don't point your neutrona wand at a stranger.
