Fan communities representing the most fervent followers of blockbuster franchises like “Star Wars” and “Ghostbusters,” zombies, pop culture and science fiction are among the groups that attendees will see roaming the Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con floor, March 22-24 at America's Center. Cosplayers from these groups love to interact with fans, adding another level of fun and in many cases raising money for charity.

Some organizations that fans will enjoy meeting include:
• 501st Legion, an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Legion seeks to promote interest in Star Wars through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Star Wars-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.
• Archon, a premier fan-run Science Fiction/Fantasy convention that began in 1977, held in Collinsville, Ill. Archon has a personal touch it wants everyone who visits to have the best time, meet fellow fans and great guests, and go back home eager to return the following year.
• Airship Vindus, based out of Columbia, Mo., is a collection of prop-makers, costumers, writers and artists that desire to produce and share multimedia projects specializing in all things concerning the steampunk genre. Calling the project Steamworks & Shadows, one of its main goals is the inclusion and inspiration of steampunk artists and fans in the Midwest.
• The Finest, a costuming club focused on the creation, display and cosplay of G.I. Joe and Cobra costumes from the action figure lines, comic books, cartoons and most recently the movies.

Using the web as a common means to gather information and share thoughts and ideas with one common goal: to build their very own, life sized, R-Series Astromech Droid.
• Greater St. Louis Ghostbusters, who entertain children of all ages at toy shows, conventions, and other events in the St. Louis metro area. The GSTLGBs meet about once a month with no dues and no requirements for membership except that members like Ghostbusters.
