botanika Bremen 2018
8 September @ 9:00 am – 9 September @ 6:00 pm
Usually we aren’t to be met in Northern Germany because there are less events taking place than in Southern or Western Germany. Thus we were very happy to follow the invitation of the “botanika goes space”-event in the botanika Bremen.
With the contribution of other fan groups, exhibitors, and sales booths with all different movie themes from fantasy-, sci-fi, or comic universes this unique event developed well especially because of the great location.
So cosplayers took their chance to take photos in a greenhouse built with reference to the Himalaya and surrounded by rhododendrons and azaleas.
Observed by a huge Buddha figure we performed in the Japanese Garden several times a day and held a workshop in basic lightsaber choreography.
Some star guests were also present: Florian Clyde, the German voice of Han Solo, attended his first convention ever and Hans-Georg Panczak (Luke Skywalker’s German voice) and Reiner Schöne (Darth Vader’s current German voice) were also present.
The event is an insider tip for sure for the coming years. We experienced how a small event can develop into a huge happening from the example of the Sci-Fi Days in Technik Museum Speyer.
