Escape Velocity Day 2 Photo Recap

Captain Cody & Iron Knight (r) at Escape Velocity

Escape Velocity made its much-anticipated DC debut (last year's inaugural festival took place at the National Harbor) this weekend, taking over the Marriott Wardman Park & Convention Center in Woodley Park for three days of cosplay and science. Friday was fun, but today's impressive turnout (rain notwithstanding) surely secured a return visit next year (and hopefully for years to come.) Just in case you weren't able to make it, here's a few photos to give you a gist of the fun to be had.

Tickets are still available for tomorrow's closing day. Click here to purchase Single Day Entries ($25-30) or Add-On Youth Single Day Admissions ($10.) Kids 10 and under, get in free.
