Coming Soon: Twin Suns Expo

June 22, 2016

Twin Suns Expo, a galactic themed event, will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2016 from 11am-4pm in Gurnee, Illinois. This convention will feature all sorts of fun events and opportunities that Star Wars fans will love. Here's what you won't want to miss at Twin Suns Expo:


Free Admission
Yes, you read that right. This event is completely free to the public and all ages are welcome. 

Celebrities and Autographs
Star Wars guests Tom Kane, who voices Yoda in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Tim Rose, who portrays Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, will both be attending Twin Suns Expo. You can meet them and get an autograph for free while time permits. Complimentary autograph cards will be offered at the event, but feel free to bring your own item to get signed by Tom Kane or Tim Rose. 


Panels & Demos
There will be four main panels at Twin Suns Expo for every type of Star Wars fan. Tom Kane and Tim Rose will be sitting down with Eric Pfeifer to chat about their work in Star Wars and what it's like to portray such iconic characters. I will be hosting a Costuming 101 panel to give advice on how to build a Star Wars costume from beginning to end. Eric will be hosting another panel called Collecting at Any Age to encourage and teach audience members that anyone can be a collector, no matter how old they are. The fourth panel will be a discussion with two of Twin Suns Outpost's artists, Bill Madia and Debbie Melton, to talk about how they create incredible custom artwork. There will also be a lightsaber demonstration from John Hartley and Nick Klien.

Merchandise & Gaming
Several vendors including Dreamland Comics from Libertyville, Illinois, will be selling a wide variety of Star Wars merchandise for fans to purchase. Gamers HQ will be bringing television sets and gaming systems for attendees to play Battlefront, Battlefront II, and LEGO: Star Wars throughout the day. There will also be Star Wars themed corn-hole games to play with prizes.
