Jaydon’s first sci-fi convention, AtomaCon

I’m a big science fiction fan so I was excited when I learned that AtomaCon was coming to Charleston. The last sci-fi convention I attended was over 10-years ago.

AtomaCon is a nonprofit dedicated to creating awareness of science fiction, fantasy and science through literacy and other popular art forms.

Jaydon has seen very little when it comes to science fiction so I was a unsure how he would react to the cosplay, art and books. Lucky Jaydon found it all interesting. He walked around looking at different displays, vendors, and the strangely dressed people. The only time Jaydon seemed a little scared or unsure was around an operational R2D2 from Star Wars. He did not want to get too close but would occasionally announce to everyone, “The robot is moving!”

Jaydon and I had a great time. The vendors and cosplayers were very friendly and more than happy to interact with Jaydon and myself. I cannot wait until Jaydon is a little older so he can really appreciate science fiction with me.

    Science fiction conventions are the best, and I’m happy you took your little one! It’s up to us to introduce the next generation to the wonders of science fiction.

      The AtomaCon was small, which is good size to introduce my toddler to Sci-fi. Comic-Con and Dragoncon would have been way to big and confusing for him.
