Fan conventions are cropping up everywhere these days. From the small to the large, from Walker Stalker to San Diego Comic-Con, there’s no shortage of conventions specially tailored for the ultimate fan. What makes a true fan experience, though, is a convention that has both the conventional star elements of a big event and the natural interaction between star and fan. The first Heroes and Villains
FanFest was not only the ultimate fan experience, but it produced a gold mine of information on upcoming episodes of Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
. The two-day convention had everything! It had the typical autograph and photo booths, vendors galore, and the most exciting element of all, the panels. Of course, cosplay was well done, with many fans representing their favorite alter egos, from the Green Arrow
, to the Evil Queen from Once Upon a Time, to a pint-sized Felicity Smoak.
