The world is constantly adding "cons" to our lives and honestly, we can't complain, because it gives us the chance to meet some of our favorite celebs. After the world-renowned Comic Con, similar events have been popping up all over the place, including Wizard World in New Orleans. The Wizard World Comic Con 2020 is what sci-fi dreams are made of and you can meet tons of your favorite actors surrounded by some potential new friends.

This huge, immersive convention joins the growing list of cosplay shenanigans including Atlanta's Dragon Con and Comic Con and the Stranger Things-centric Stranger Con.

2020 marks the 10th annual Wizard World Comic Con New Orleans and this year is going to be even better. The Smallville cast will reunite at the event, so try not to faint when you see Tom Welling.

There will be tons of other sci-fi/fantasy stars there too, including Sam Heughan (Outlander), Kristin Kreuk (Smallville) and Sam Maher (Firefly). You'll have the chance to meet several stars, snap a pic and get their autograph, so you're basically best friends at that point.

The convention will be held at New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Center on Jan. 3, 4 and 5. Make sure to check which days your fave celebs will be in attendance so you can get your tickets accordingly.

General admission tickets start at only $35 for one-day tickets, and there are tons of customized packages that feature VIP and Outlander-based experiences. Photo ops start at only $10 so you can basically do a whole photoshoot with different stars.

Additional exhibits include live entertainment, gaming and a cosplay contest, so come dressed from head-to-toe as your fave sci-fi character for a chance to win prizes and impress the stars.

The event only takes place in a handful of U.S. cities so definitely take advantage of this opportunity.
