James Sutter added his own enthusiasm to the panels with his amazing advice and love for the art of creation. He and Sean Izaakse took to the stage in a collaborative effort, creating a monster with input from the audience, and giving sound explanations on how to create a monster from beginning to end. If you missed out today, don't worry! They will be holding another lab tomorrow (Saturday) for alien creation.
This year's ICON is also more kid-friendly, with an enormous Nickelodeon theatre set up with cartoons from over the years.
Tomorrow is set to be even bigger, with our amazing local cosplayers taking the opportunity to show their skills, and there will be even more amazing panels, shops and games galore! Be sure to support our local artists and vendors who offer everything from cakes and decor to jewelry, personalized dress, and corsetry. Feel free to stop by and play a game with the 4Ever Odd guys who have developed TradeWars. I played this game a couple of years ago with my daughter and we really enjoyed it. If you haven't played it yet, you'll find them along the wall behind the Workshop stage.
There is plenty to see at ICON tomorrow, and we're all looking forward to the comedy show that night! Every year just gets better and better. Tickets for the comedy show are only R100, so be sure to get them before they're gone!
