I attended the Fantastic Quest
in Kempten, Germany. It's a small Convention in the southern part of Germany, near a shopping centre, near the heart of the town itself. Last year the Convention took place for the first time, making it a really young event still.
It's not the type of Event I usually attend - but I had the joy of being invited as a Cosplay guest. I still cannot thank you all enough for this experience! It was really really lovely and I definitely had a good time! ^__^
And before we head on, here is my Convention Video: Fantastic Quest 2015 Video
We walked around the building for a while which consists of a ground floor (with some shops, the entrance area, and the booths of the sponsors), a lower floor with the backstage area and the stage and an upper floor with some more booths (the Bring&Buy, another merchant, a photo booth and some Orks camping there). It's a rather small area. A lot of options to play various games, try out a gym training, or try to win one of the many sponsored prizes (A new mobile, an XBoxOne or a PlayStation 4, some Musterbrand shirts and much more!). So, in spite of there not being a lot of chances to shop anything, there was indeed a lot of things to do.
The highlight for me, however, was not one of the booths or the games - no, it were the shows. That's kinda strange for me as the shows are usually my main aspect of critique when I watch them. I simply cannot help to be picky when it comes to watching others dance or perform on stage.
As I already mentioned, I had the luck to be invited to this convention! Once again: thanks so much! As a cosplay guest, as the name says already, I wore a cosplay. I was Ezio Auditore for a couple of hours and sure had a blast!
So, all in all I had a wonderful time. If you want to shop at a Convention - the Fantastic Quest maybe is not the right choice for you. If you like innovative stage shows it's a good place to see them! If your reason to attent conventions is cosplay shootings, then you maybe also should choose another place to do that.
The Fantastic Quest is a small convention and its strength lies in the friendly helpers, the prizes which can be won and the intersting stage shows.
