If you are a fan of the MTV show, "Teen Wolf", then you'll want to be at the Marriott Marquis Atlanta this weekend. EyeCon Conventions is back with its first ever fan convention dedicated to the hit TV series based on the 80's film of the same name.
Established in 2006, EyeCon Conventions began in Orlando and has hosted conventions for TV shows and films such as "Supernatural", "Twilight", "True Blood" and "The Bionic Woman". A few years ago, they moved their convention to the Atlanta area, focusing on the (then new) CW show "The Vampire Diaries", which is filmed in the metro and surrounding Atlanta areas. The popularity of the show and the convention grew, and in recent years there have been two major events per year. This weekend will mark the first time a convention for "Teen Wolf" has been done, and excitement on EyeCon's Facebook page makes it obvious that fans are excited.
What makes EyeCon different from other conventions? Well for starters, it's a smaller crowd (attendance is usually capped a several hundred) and the smaller numbers allows for a more intimate experience for both fans and the stars. EyeCon is also different in that the stars are encouraged to participate in all events and hang out with the fans. Sometimes you may get a surprise celebrity of two, who aren't an official part of the convention but decide to show up for the fun anyway.
There are several ticket packages catering to the ultimate fan (the $395 Platinum package, which includes admission to all of the weekend events) or to the casual con-goer (general admission weekend and daily tickets start at $40). Fans who choose to attend but not purchase a package are still able to buy tickets for autographs, photo ops, the celebrity banquet, or the parties held on Friday and Saturday nights.
Celebrity guests for EyeCon Teen Wolf will include: Tyler Posey (Scott McCall), Tyler Hoechlin (Derek Hale), Daniel Sharman (Isaac Lahey), Adelaide Kane (Cora Hale), Stephen Lunsford (Matt Daehler), Sinqua Walls (Vernon Boyd), and Eaddy Mays (Victoria Argent). Musical guest Jessarae will also be there to perform. LifeSouth Community Blood Centers will be on-site all weekend conducting blood drives.
EyeCon Teen Wolf will take place June 13 - 15 at the Marriott Marquis in Downtown Atlanta. For more information, directions and to purchase tickets, visit their website at www.eyeconfla.com.
