Rocky Mountain area geeks left the gorgeous Colorado Springs area fulfilled after an amazing three day convention called GalaxyFest. This weekend Feb 21-23, 2014 Rocky Mountain fans descended upon the lovely Antlers Hilton hotel to soak up sci-fi, fantasy, anime, and horror culture. This convention had something for everyone from young to the young at heart. The little ones explored the vast hotel grounds with their Dr Who and superhero capes with pure joy on their faces. It was a time for friends to hang out and celebrate their passion in Sci-Fi, Steampunk, Anime, Fantasy, and Zombies.

Kicking things off on Friday was a zombie crawl followed by a zombie costume contest. Cult film fans had the chance to watch the very popular film Big Trouble in Little China hosted by I Hate Peacocks. Of course what convention would be complete with a Rocky Horror Picture Show Shadowcast at midnight. Saturday morning attendees gradually emerged from their hotel rooms in full costume and excited for the day of fun ahead. Along with constant activities for all ages, attendees had the chance to relieve their childhood and pop culture memories by getting to know celebrity guests such as Richard Herd, Joyce DeWitt, Marta Kristen, Paul Bradford, Beverly Washburn, Jon Provost, James Hampton, Mary Deese Hampton, Laurie Jacobson, and AZ Powergirl Cara Nicole.

Sunday fellow Questerians reveled in one of the most popular sci-fi films, Galaxy Quest, and enjoyed a third day of fun. No surprise there was a Doctor Who theme prevalent throughout the convention. There were Daleks, Doctors, and tardises of all shapes and sizes roaming the con floor. The How to Be a Doctor Who Companion panel was packed with Whovians of all ages. One of the most beautiful moments when a little boy around eight years old took part in the discussions with knowledge beyond his years. At the entrance of the con was Duncan Macleod’s incredible display of Daleks and a full size Tardis there for photo ops. Duncan is the founder of AZ T.A.R.D.I.S. who travels around western area conventions to raise funds and awareness for non-profit organizations. The success of GalaxyFest 2014 no doubt ensures many years to come.
