Name: Jenn Angstadt

Nickname: Jenn

How many Retro Cons have I attended? Every one so far! I am planning to attend each one in the future as well. It has become a family tradition of sorts. We use personal vacation days off of work/school in preparation for attendance.

The BEST part about Retro Con: What’s not to like? The costumes, friendly faces, guests, panels, and merchandise. It takes you on a trip down memory lane to simpler times and allows me to share that with my own children in a realistic and fun way! I love that the atmosphere is family friendly so I don’t have to be overly concerned about what my family is exposed to like at other conventions.

Costumes: I attended my first RetroCon convention as She-Ra. I had also cosplayed as Jem, Belle, and Audrey (Little Shoppe of Horrors).

What have I bought at Retro Con: I’ve purchased board and video games, books, Legos, and collectible items over the course of multiple visits.

Favorite Retro Con Memory: It’s hard to pick just one! Meeting multiple guests over the years made for some amazing family moments! I absolutely love seeing familiar faces every years, and eagerly anticipate what “characters” we will encounter while in attendance.

Favorite Retro Con Panel: I honestly enjoy the costume contests the most. It is amazing to observe the talent, time, efforts and genius which had been invested into each one to bring beloved “characters” from my youth to life!

Where you can find me? I am on FaceBook throughout the year but mostly am found to be working, doing coursework, and volunteering. No rest for the weary. RetroCon provides me with a much needed break from routine! During the convention I tend to wander around engaging with the characters and shopping.

Joel & Tom Servo at RetroCon 2014. What a great guy! He was so kind to our youngest and even performed a magic trick for her, giving her an Ecto-1 car he “pulled out of her ear”.
