In The Princess Bride, as Buttercup prepares to commit suicide with a dagger, Westley says, "There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world. It would be a pity to damage yours." What a mensch! Well, this weekend, you have a chance to meet Cary Elwes, the actor who played this heartbreaker, at Florida SuperCon.
Other comic con guests include the guy who played the original Tron, Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Walking Dead comic book artist, an actress from CaddyShack, and Internet phenom MeekaKitty. With that star-studded lineup, we had to get our grubby little hands on some tickets. Want four free ones? Read on.
To win four comic con tickets, leave a comment with your favorite superhero on the Cultist Facebook page (yes, you must actually "Like" the page first). We'll pick a winner at random by Wednesday at 5 p.m. Tickets will be held for you at the event. (And if you leave a comment on this post, the entire New Times staff will sit around and laugh at your inability to follow directions, seriously.)
In addition to photos opps with Princess Bride, Tron, and Caddyshack stars, stop in for the Geek Film Festival. It's screenings flicks like Back to Space-Con about the very first Star Trek convention, the satirical The Bolt That Stole Christmas, and Bots High about Miami's high school robotics teams.
Two dozen bands will perform at Florida Supercon, including Friday night's headliner, Motion City Soundtrack. There will also be nerd-tinged karaoke and full-throttle cosplay competitions.
Florida SuperCon opens this Friday at noon and runs until Monday at 8 p.m. at Miami Airport Convention Center (711 NW 72nd Ave., Miami). Miami Single day tickets cost $25, except for Monday when tickets cost $15. A four-day full event pass costs $50 and a VIP all-access weekend pass costs $150. Visit floridasupercon.com.
