Do you have a better relationship with your online gamer friends than your real life ones?
Do you take serious offense when someone calls you a geek, and means it as an insult?

Yeah, us too. That, and so many other reasons, is why we're bringing you a world of nerds, gamers, geeks, cosplayers, otaku, goths, and punk, packed into a little convention right here in North Florida.
ALT*Con seeks to bridge the great expanse of fandoms, and bring a little harmony to our bit of the universe. With vendors ranging from comic book dealers to handmade crafts and t-shirts, this is a place where the more different you are, the more normal you'll seem! The only thing we won't have is hate, so, suit up, and let your geek and/or freak flag fly at ALT*Con: Tallahassee 2014.
