The Cosplay Train Express, the world’s first all immersive pop culture rail experience, aimed at fans looking for that ultimate adventure. As part of an annual trek from Los Angeles to San Diego to celebrate the iconic Grandaddy of comic book conventions, this first-of-its-kind annual rail adventure will offer a limited number of fans the unique opportunity to engage with global celebrities, past and present, while creating the ultimate cosplay future universe along the way. William Kircher, who portrayed the iconic dwarf “Bifur” in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will be on board to socialize with fans and lead the 4-day celebration as event emcee. Those fortunate to procure these “Golden Rail Passes” are encouraged to brush up on the ancient Dwarvish language before departing on this adventure. Golden Rail Passes are on sale NOW!

“I am excited to be the host of the Cosplay Train Express,” says William Kircher. “When I was told that this was the first annual adventure, I just knew that my participation would be something that cosplay and pop culture fans would enjoy. It should be a lot of fun.” Fan favorites from other movie and TV franchises will also join the rail experience, including Adam West, Julie Newmar, and Burt Ward, with more names from the guest list to be released in the coming weeks.

The Cosplay Train Express includes* roundtrip rail fare, one day in San Diego during Comic-Con International, all-inclusive food and beverage, and a 21+ environment throughout the train, with specialty cocktails and innovative party programming that brings stars and fans together in smaller, more extraordinary settings. The Cosplay Train Express departs daily from Los Angeles, July 21-24, 2016. Quintessential themes will be recreated on board while additional events will be built around each railcar and their defining traits. Fans can choose their adventure from four immersive experiences: The Wizard Express The Sci-fi Universe Lounge TRAXX Celebrity Lounge Heroes vs Villains Lounge

The Cosplay Train Express will give “railers” the chance to become part of the Cosplay Universe throughout their adventure. Staffed by a passionate crew and professional cosplayers dressed in distinctive costumes, each railcar on the private carriages will pay homage to a favorite universe with parties and trivia competitions inspired by pivotal moments in pop culture history. Angry Goat Productions is a Los Angeles based multi-platform world leader in live entertainment innovation. With three interconnecting divisions that engage global consumers through live events, streaming media, and digital platforms, while inspiring and entertaining a world community of die-hard fans in a unique and meaningful way: with adventures that last a lifetime.

Christine Adams is a full time model and gamer. This Eurasian beauty also happens to be the original live-action Kusanagi from the privately funded PROJECT GITS2051. In light of all the controversy surrounding the recent casting of Scarlett Johansson in Paramount’s big-budget Ghost in the Shell remake (and the subsequent accusations of whitewashing), Matt thought it would be a good idea to get some perspective from the first real, live girl to play the part. Matt and Christine talk about how a modeling career can launch from playing Dungeons & Dragons and the challenges for people of color in the white dominated world of American movies. Listen to it here on this amazing episode of Pod Sequentialism with Matt Kennedy presented by Meltdown Comics.

“I believe that Tabletop Gaming is exercise for Storytelling, in all of its forms.” – Satine Phoenix

CCDD is an Annual Charity event where Celebrities & their fans raise money by Playing Dungeons and Dragons at Meltdown Comics – LIVE STREAMED in the Nerdist Theater so YOU can donate from home!

Keith Baker (creator of Eberron) has custom designed a 2 hour game for this special event. Both he and Matthew Mercer (Voice actor – Attack on Titan/Thundercats) will be taking turns Dungeon Mastering 4 tables of 5 players over an 8 hour period. We will be STREAMING this event LIVE to raise money for the charity: Reach Out and Read.

Since our first game in 2010 we’ve raised over $3000 for RoRLosAngeles.org

We are members of the Tabletop Gaming community who want to show our support for Dungeons and Dragons and Future Gamers of the world. Help us Help Children by giving them the boost they need and showing kids that reading can lead to amazingly fun things… like playing!

What Is Reach Out and Read?

Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based nonprofit organization that promotes early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.

Reach Out and Read builds on the unique relationship between parents and medical providers to develop critical early reading skills in children, beginning at 6 months of age. The 3.8 million families served annually by “Reach Out and Read” read together more often, their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies, with stronger language skills, and better prepared to succeed.

Pediatric healthcare providers (including pediatricians, family physicians, and pediatric nurse practitioners) are trained in the three-part Reach Out and Read model to promote early literacy and school readiness. Read More: RoRLosAngeles.org

If you come to Meltdown, you will not be able to watch the event as it is in a closed set. Watch alone or throw a viewing party. Just don’t forget to donate!!! You will only be able to receive a Viewing Password after you Donate to the Cause!
