I’m a week out from BayCon and going through my last minute panic rituals. It involves a lot of comments along the lines of “Oh thank God! It fits!” as I work on the last minute details of my costume. I’m also making so many lists of things I need to get done before I go. This post is one of the items on the list.
Yes, I’m panicked enough to add items to my list just so I can have that tiny surge of satisfaction at checking it off. Like the feeling I get when I check off the item about reminding you I’ll be presenting at the following panels —
Costuming With Nontraditional Materials And Skills
Friday 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM, Connect 6
Can’t sew? Don’t limit your cosplay to fabric based items.
Cosplay Is Not Consent
Friday 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM, Synergy 5
That cosplayer is a person with feelings and boundaries. Our panelists discuss photography and etiquette for working with cosplayers.
Friday 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM, Synergy 2
No, not that one. Come learn about geeky crafting with yarn- what patterns for fandom are out there and where to find them.
Saturday 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, Convene
The BayCon Variety show returns for its 3 rd year! Join our toastmasters The Library Bards on Saturday night. This year will put the V in variety, with a short play, juggling, singing, dancing, storytelling, and even a special burlesque treat (PG-13). And of course, our talented costumers showing off their latest creations… And the return of the Mixy Awards!
Are Cons Good For Your Health?
Monday 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM, Convene
Con crud and con fatigue from improper self-care are real issues. Are there also positive health benefits to being surrounded by your tribe when your health is poor?
Otherwise I’ll be out and about. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.
