The best part of any convention is reuniting with old friends and meeting new ones. The smaller format of DonCon really helped to amplify this aspect. The majority of the weekend was spent hanging, laughing, and listening to tales of Don Post Studios' past. As a mask collector, I'm grateful to all those who came together to make the event possible.
Posted below are a variety of photos posted on Instagram by artist and Illustrator Eric Pigors. They are a wonderful summary of some of the eye candy that was on display...
