Enchanted is a series of British conventions by Starfury for the TV series Once Upon A Time.

General Structure

The cons have very few, if any, fan stalls, and are mostly focused around panels, fan meets, autographs and photo ops with actors. There are also parties and a cosplay contest.

The con is extremely strict at not allowing filming of panels, and so very little video of the con exists.

Enchanted 2

Enchanted 2 was held 14th-16th June 2019 in Birmingham, UK.

Guests

The main draw for the convention was arguably the inclusion of Gosh, the portmanteau for the real life couple Ginnifer Goodwin/Josh Dallas (who portrayed the show's ship Snowing), as the con would be the pair's first ever con appearance.

The actors who portrayed KnightRook, the father-daughter relationship of Wish!Killian Jones and Alice Jones, were also present, these being Colin O'Donoghue and Rose Reynolds respectively.

Reception

The con was generally well received.

Memorable Moments

One of the more memorable moments from the con involved the panel involving Rose, Colin and Andrew:

This is the transaction [sic] between Rose and Colin (and Andrew) when asked how Alice would tell Rogers she and Robin were expecting a baby. They acted it out for us, though there was a bit of confusion over what exactly they were acting out. (Note, not word to word since some things was hard to hear and such lol.)

Rose: Did Robin have a conversation with you? The other day?

Colin: No.

Rose: N- No she didn’t? Um. Oh. She said she was gonna talk to you.

Colin: What time? When?

Rose: Oh, okay yeah. Um. Oh no, yeah. So I was just wondering, ummmmm. Hiiiii. Um. So, I-I’m, I’m gonna marry Robin.

Colin: Yeah?

Rose: Yeah.

Colin: Oh no, she spoke to me about that.

Rose: Well I just asked you that and you said she didn’t. And you’re now saying she did.

Colin: Yeah well,

Rose: Okay! Sorry, sorry!

Andrew: Sorry, I didn’t know that-

Rose: You didn’t tell me Henry was gonna be here.

Colin: He just called round for a coffee.

Andrew: Yeah I’ve just been standing behind you since the entire time.

Rose: Okay. How long were you in the toilet for?!

Andrew: I heard everything. Carry on!

Rose: Did you use soap?

Colin: So now you know, now you know how Henry finds out!

Rose: That’s how Henry found out.

Colin: *Quietly* It was about the baby. It wasn’t about the wedding.

Rose: Wait about the baby?

Colin: It was about you getting pregnant.

Rose: About... Me getting... Having a baby?

Colin: Yeah about you having a baby.

Rose: Oh so it’s not been about- Oh. I thought. Hi- Sorry... *Starting over!* Hi, dad! I’m pregnant.

Andrew: WOW!

Rose: Oh. How long have you been standing there?

Andrew: Not very long![1]

The seventh chapter of Happy Accidents was inspired by the exchange, and is named after a phrase used by Rose: Hi Dad, I'm Pregnant.

Fan Meetups

The convention had an informal meetup with some members of the O'Donocrew.
