    Seeker-Goodkind Fandom United at DragonCon

     

    The Legend of the Seeker/Terry Goodkind fandom has converged to DragonCon 2011 bringing beautiful cosplayers, a fan table, panels, and a costume parade group.

     

    Hundreds of DragonCon attendees have stopped by the booth these past two days saying how much they love the show and the books (Legend of the Seeker is loosely based on "The Sword of Truth" novels by Terry Goodkind and is produced by Disney's ABC-Studio) and how much they would love to see at least a third season produced. While the novels are geared to an adult audience, the TV show managed to attract a very diverse crowd - from children, to adults of all ages, and like the books, the show is a big global success with an estimated 5 million fans and growing.

     

    Fans in costume are a big hit! The Mord-Sith warriors in red and white leather are hard to miss and usually attract a big crowd of photographers. Some of the fans even have original show costumes that they purchased on eBay and could show off the magnificent craftsmanship of the costumes which are 100% handmade. Cosplayers were touched to see children walking to them during the costume parade as they recognized their favorite show characters.

     

    The "bookies" packed the conference room where the "Seeking Goodkind" panel took place to share how much they've been touched by Terry Goodkind's novels, talk about their favorite characters and themes. They all cheered and applauded at the end of the panel - and asked for more Goodkind-themed panels at next year's convention.

     

    DragonCon is not yet over and Seeker/Goodkind fans are already planning for DragonCon 2012. What's not to love about this fandom!
