A Weekend in Costume: Live from Megacon 2009

Inside The Dealer Room

Probably the most heavily populated area of the convention was The Dealer Room. About the size of a football field, there were hundreds of vendors selling everything from comic book related t-shirts, magnets, and paintings to swords, knives and other weaponry. Others sold costumes or dresses and decorative pieces that could be worn as costumes, while more vendors sold action figures and plush dolls from sci-fi movies and television shows. Celebrities from sci-fi films and t.v. shows signed autographs while artists signed original drawings. There were no limits to the imagination inside this room.

Just one of the many sword collections on sale.

Vendors set up spaces to sell old collectible comic books.

One vendor in The Dealer Room made superheroes and villians out of balloons.

Some shops sold costumes and dresses that could be worn for other occasions.

One of the many, many, many shops that sold t-shirts.
