Nostalgia con was a blast! We we're front and center the entire weekend, and as Reli mentioned, we we're the very 1st thing that people saw when they entered the event.
Lots of artists and celebs came by our display and showed us lots of love. To name a few we had Michael Chambers aka Boogaloo Shrimp (Turbo from the 80s movie Breakin) with us all weekend long, we we're graced with the presence of The Sugar Hill Gang, Monie Love, Mellow Man Ace, Arabian Prince, Dj Sir Jinx, Rodney O, E Love (LL Cool J's right hand man back in the day) Cary Elwes (Princess Bride and Stranger Things), Corey Feldman from Goonies (who wanted to buy Melvin's custom painted blue Victor). We got so much positive feedback from countless attendees, and they really loved having the opportunity to pose and take pics in front of our "boombox wall" banner while holding a real boombox, a J1 belonging to our friend and fellow collector Rob.
This was a huge effort for all of us that we're able to be a part of it, everyone came together and contributed in one way or another to pull off this great event.
Here's a few more pics

There was also cosplay, concert performances, cars, trucks, and plenty of vendors. We hope to have the opportunity to be apart of this again next year!
