It’s that time of year again, friends, when we start to scrape together funds to attend fan conventions in the new year. In 2014, I gave you 5 California conventions I was dying to attend, and even got the chance to go to a few. In 2015, I am expanding my horizons and sharing with you 5 fan conventions across the United States that are well worth the travel. When it comes to attending fan conventions, the sooner you know what you’re looking for, the better. It’s best to think of fees such as hotel, transportation, cosplay and food as well as entrance cost and spending cash before the actual date, so as to get a head start on purchasing items in advance and not shock your wallet too badly.

If you’re interested in attending one of the cons on the list below, click on the links, visit the pages and book your time NOW, before tickets are gone. Enjoy!

I am a proud Destiel shipper and have been ever since The Collectress introduced me to the Supernatural universe. Still, I must admit, the Destiel phenomenon on Twitter and Tumblr astounds me. These fans have found a ship to sail and do so proudly on social media.

While the Destiel ship is not an explicit one on the show, fans of the pairing don’t seem to care. During the premiere of season 9 episode 10, “Road Trip”, the hashtags #Supernatural and #Gadreel trended worldwide as well as the surprising dark horse #ProfoundBond, which fans all know refers directly to the very special relationship Dean and Castiel share.
