All the info for Raleigh Supercon has been dropped for this year, and the lineup looks AMAZING! If you don't know, Supercon is a chain of conventions that cater to all things nerd, and the Raleigh stop happens from July 25 - 28, 2019. It's a good thing that it lasts 3 days, too, with all the stuff going on!

1. The list of celebrities is INSANE!

Giphy

Supercon's really bringing the heat this year with their celebrity line-up. Including, but not limited to: Christy Carlson-Romero (Kim Possible, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, Even Stevens), Felicia Day (Supernatural, Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Guild), Chris Sarandon (The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Princess Bride), Mike Colter (Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, The Defenders) and literally TONS more!

They include voice actors, animators, artists, comedians, and professional cosplayers!

2. There are gaming events, including MLG players, console games, and more!

Giphy

If your nerdiness is more video games instead of superheroes, don't fear! There are gaming events for you to take part in! They range from free play on pc or console, co-op tournaments, and even interactions with major league gamers.

3. Photo-Ops with Stanley, Creed, Oscar and Meredith from "The Office"

Giphy

Are you, like most of the world, a fan of The Office? Supercon's got you covered. Leslie Baker, Creed Bratton, Kate Flannery and Oscar Nunez (aka Stanley, Creed, Meredith, and Oscar, respectively) are all available for photo-ops!

4. TONS of Cosplay Competitions

Giphy

Supercon's list of cosplay events is epic, including fashion shows to contests with $1000 cash prizes and runway contests. Whether you're someone who cosplays, or someone who just likes seeing others rep your favorite characters, there's a cosplay event for you.

5. There's a fantasy wrestling match!?

Giphy

Yep, you read that right: fantasy. wrestling. FSCW (Fantasy Super Cosplay Wrestling) is an event where you can watch combos like Spider-Gwen and Skeletor or Bane and Starlord wrestle it out.

6. Tim Freakin' Curry will be there!

Giphy

If you don't know Tim Curry...you're living under a rock. His list of work is seemingly endless, but he's most widely known as playing Dr. Frank N Furter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Pennywise in IT (1990).

He's actually so popular that Supercon has an entire sub-section on their website just for Tim Curry tickets.

8. Snag some cool art of your favorite characters.

Giphy

Just like any classic convention, Supercon has an Artist's Alley! One of my personal favorite things to do at conventions is check out the vendors, so that's where I'd be spending most of my time, honestly.

If you're an artist in the Raleigh area, you can sign up to be a vendor here.

9. Disney fans...there's a ton of stuff for you here.

Giphy

Not only will there surely be Disney cosplayers, but a ton of voice actors from your favorite animated movies and shows will be at Supercon! Including the voice of Ariel and Eric from The Little Mermaid, Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Ron from Kim Possible, and even the voice of Donald Duck himself! There's even a comedy event called Drunk on Disney!

10. There are comedy events!

Giphy

If you're out of nerdiness to partake in and want some laughter, Supercon has 4 different comedy specials to get your giggles going!

It's pretty clear that no matter where your interests lie, Supercon has something for you to do. These 10 events are only the half of it, too. Be sure to check out their website to find out more about how to get tickets!

"It mattered to me that when we were depicting racial diversity for Rec Room, we showed the broad spectrum of what Blackness can look like."

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.

@lilyjmoe

CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.
