PRYOR — Oklahoma artist Muriel Fahrion may have created a piece from your childhood. Fahrion, whose creations include Strawberry Shortcake, the Care Bears and the Get Along Gang, will be a guest at the 2022 Pryor Creek Comic Convention, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, October 15 at the Mayes County Event Center on the park of Prior exhibitions.
The sixth-grade convention, presented by the Pryor Area Arts and Humanities Council, will feature more than 80 tables of vendors selling comics, books, toys, action figures, art and more pop culture related merchandise.
A cash prize cosplay contest (and a non-cash prize cosplay contest for kids) will be part of the show in addition to a Super Smash Bros. tournament.
Jana Jae, a former cast member of “Hee Haw,” is an art enthusiast who will be both a guest and a vendor at the convention. Jim Halsey, who once ran the world’s largest country music agency in Tulsa, is bringing an exhibit of music legend memorabilia to the convention as a bonus attraction.
Chelsea’s John Wooley will be among the guest authors. Famous pop culture vehicles such as the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine and Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters will be parked outside the convention venue for photo ops.
