LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) -- The Stateline sees its first Geek'd Con, a place where celebrities and fans meet and heroes and villains mingle.

Locals are dressing up as some of their favorite characters and meeting some of their favorite stars at the Indoor Sports Center in Loves Park.

"Don't dream it, be it," says Barry Bostwick. He played Brad Majors in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. "You have to go beyond your dream, actualize it, make it a reality."

"If you've got a dream, make it happen," says Dough Shiloh. He's a graphic artist from Belvidere who's looking to bring his novel to a TV screen.

Naomi Grossman from American Horror Story, Svengoolie and stars from TV shows Supernatural and Power Rangers also attended the event.

Cosplayers dressed up as everything from Batman to Harley Quinn and characters out of their own imagination.
