Pasadena AlienCon 2018

GameStop, Inc.

June 15-17, 2018 – AlienCon came to Pasadena, CA and so did the crowds. This show draws those that are driven to explore the wonders of the world through the exploration of the mind, science, alternative science and metaphysics. If you’ve never attended AlienCon it’s an event you won’t easily forget. There are many exhibitors, speakers and yes, even cosplayers.

Prominent Guest speakers this year included David Duchovny, Gates McFadden, Giorgio A.Tsoukalos, Jan C. Harzan (MUFON Executive Director), Jonathan Del Arco, Linda Moulton Howe (Emmy Award Winning Investigative Journalist), Mitch Pileggi, Robert Picardo, Sean Austin, and many other incredible presenters. The auditoriums were filled with enthusiastic fans, investigators and curious spectators as the presenters took to the stage. “Ancient Aliens: Metaphysics and Prophecy,” “25 years of the X-Files,” “What is SETI?,” “Breakthrough Physics: Warp Drives, Stargates, and the Quantum Connection” were among some of the education and fun filled presentations.

FanboyNation was able to meet up with a few guests and trade show exhibitors for some interviews. We spoke to Bri Gisella and Jesse Mansfield, show attendees, as to their thoughts on AlienCon. They were ecstatic about the show and being Los Angeles locals they came in full costume.

Bri Gisella and Jesse Mansfield

FBN: Bri, tell us about yourself.

Bri: I’m a vocalist, model and musician.


FBN: What made you decided to come to AlienCon?

Bri: I attended because I’ve always been a believer in aliens, a fan of sci-fi, and my boyfriend is a true enthusiast.


FBN: What are your overall thoughts on the show?

Bri: I really enjoyed it, the merchandise and art work was extensive and the panels I watched were great. I’d love to see more entertainment and attractions included next year.


FBN: What was your favorite lecture?

Bri: Erich von Dåniken was great, I loved seeing his dynamic with Giorgio A. Tsoukalos.


FBN: What was your favorite part of the event?

Bri: Envisioning a Post-disclosure world was great, I loved that they allowed debate between the panelists and the topic was handled with intellect and care.


FBN: Did you get a chance to walk the trade show?

Bri: Yes, I really enjoyed the alien related original art and merchandise.


FBN: Will we see you hear next year?

Bri: Yes, we will absolutely be coming and in more costumes! This year we just had capes and antennae.


FBN: Big question; Are aliens real?

Bri: I think it’s arrogant to think we are the only life in the universe, and I love exploring all possibilities of what other life may be out there and all the various possibilities around their existence. I am a believer in multiple dimensions, and that there are intelligent beings we are yet aware of that originate from other planets.


FBN: Did you have a favorite presenter?

Bri: Oh definitely Giorgio!

Fanboy Nation took a moment to also interview Apolla Asteria who participated in the tradeshow selling her Shaman Spears. Apolla is an actress, model and artist and creator of Shaman Spears. Apolla describes Shaman Spears as “uniquely hand-crafted energy channeling devices.”

FBN: Apolla, what brings you to AlienCon this year?

Apolla: I have been a UFO researcher all my life and have been going to UFO conventions for about 5 years now. I am friends with several speakers in the scene and plan to be one myself someday. This year I am here selling my Shaman Spears at this event.


FBN: How do you like the event so far?

Apolla: It felt a little more comic con like then the other UFO conventions I have been to. Because it was more about the TV personalities and there was cosplay involved. Which I think is great because it draws in more people that are normally outsiders to the UFO convention scene. I didn’t see any lectures because I was at my booth the whole time for this event. But I always very much enjoy hearing Giorgio and Linda Moulten Howle speak, I’m sure they were great.


FBN: What’s been your favorite part of this weekend?

Apolla: My favorite part of the event was all the like-minded people who came. It’s nice to meet psychics, UFO enthusiasts, and spiritual types from all walks of life.


FBN: How’s the trade show going for you?

Apolla: I had a great time, I completely sold out of my products and got a lot of attention from the media. Also enjoyed the other vendors.


FBN: Are you a believer?

Apolla: I believe aliens are real. I have done a lot of research on the Sumerian tablets and ancient civilizations and believe ancient aliens helped genetically engineer the human race. I have also had many UFO experiences myself. And yes, they are multidimensional.

I encourage anyone who hasn’t been to a UFO convention to check one out, even if you don’t believe in aliens. The science and theories presented will for sure open your mind.
