Last weekend, the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City was host to the 2nd annual Eternal Con, which is Long Island’s pop-culture event of the summer! And just like last year, SPLI was there to represent and support our local Long Island con and we hosted two panels!
Our first panel was “Unleash the Power of Amiibo” where we discussed different Amiibo training strategies and recommended lots of great places to find Amiibo competitions and tournaments. We also had to use this opportunity to show off some of our Amiibo collections, as well as some awesome custom paint jobs!
The second panel hosted by SPLI was the “Ask a Pokemon Gym Leader” panel, which was extremely popular! We filled the room with Pokemon fans who came to learn more about new battle strategies and get tips on what Gym Leaders do to try and outsmart their opponents. It was a lot of fun and we were pumped to see some Pokemon Trainer cosplayers at the panel too!
Check out our photos from Eternal Con, and maybe next year you will join us in the fun!
On June 14th and 15th, Long Island Comic Con was held at The Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, NY. Known as Eternal Con, this new convention (only in it’s second year) featured many big name vendors and celebrities for pop culture fans to enjoy! StreetPass Long Island wanted to be a part of this amazing local event opportunity, so we hosted an encore presentation of the popular Pokémon X&Y: Competitive Trainer Seminar, which we originally performed at PAX East back in April.
If you weren’t able to attend the event (you should definitely try to go next year!) we have great news! There was a great videographer at the panel who posted the entire panel on YouTube!
Thanks to everyone who joined us at Eternal Con this year, we really appreciate your support! We hope you enjoyed the panel, and we plan to go even bigger at Eternal Con next year!
If you are a Long Islander who is a fan of New York Comic Con, then you might already know about Eternal Con. If not, then SPLI is here to keep you informed! Eternal Con is Long Island’s Comic Con, and this year it is going to be held at the Cradle of Aviation in Garden City on June 14th and 15th. Sounds like a great venue for super hero cosplay and photo ops!
Eternal Con is a fairly new convention and SPLI wants to help make it a success! We are planning to host a meetup somewhere at the convention, but details are TBD at this time. If you don’t have a ticket yet, you might be interested to learn that all Weekend (2-Day) Passes include a free ticket to Cosplay Night at CitiField to watch the Mets play against the Brewers on June 12th.
