    Friday, Tessa Thomas and Jackie Novelli appeared in cosplay on Brazos Valley This Morning to talk about what people can expect.

    "You can expect a wide range of dealers, we have an anime room and a table top room that will hit all of your major points with anime, TV shows and other things," said Thomas, the AggieCon director. "We call ourselves a congloma-con so we do horror, fantasy, sci-fi and the works."
