Galactic Swag Expo is making its way to Arlington, Texas and the new Esports Stadium is playing host. I honestly could not think of a better location for a convention so the site alone is exciting. GSE has a bit of an identity crisis but for all the right reasons. This convention will be geared towards several different aspects of our beloved geeky universe. The con will have a strong emphasis on Scifi, Fantasy & Action movies and all the behind the scenes movie magic like VFX, props, costumes and the folks that make all this happen.
GSE's eventual goal is to make this convention into a movie museum combined with an E3 vibe with the help of publishers, developers and entertainment companies along the way. This year GSE will feature a prop and costume exhibit hall with props from movies and Tv shows such as: Ghost in the Shell, Battlestar Galactica, The Chronicles of Riddick, Batman and more. Personally this peaks my attention, seeing props from some of my favorite movies in person has always been awesome to me. It gives you insight to how intricate and in some cases how simple movie props can be.
GSE will also feature appearances from actors Gil Gerard (Transformers: Robots in Disguise), Gigi Edgley (Farscape, Star Trek Continues), Felix Silla (Return of the Jedi, Battlestar Galactica) and many more! The convention will take place later this month on July 27th through the 28th. Tickets are available now at https://www.galacticswagexpo.com. Escape the Texas heat and get in on the action!
