Thanks for a fun weekend! Will there be run lists of all the masquerade/show entries and/or a list of all the winners in the different categories posted at some point? If it is already up somewhere, could you please let me know where. It's certainly not something I need immediately, but I want to make sure to note the titles/creators on my photos properly. Thanks again!
Lost and found! LOST : A wooden walking stick was lost in the Geneva room (across from registration) on Sunday. If you picked it up, please contact us via email or this Facebook page. FOUND : Size 14 navy blue knit jacket and large rectangular mirror (USD theater department written in sharpie on back). If these belong to you, please contact us via email or this Facebook page.
So much fun!
Thank you to everyone who came out to the convention this weekend! We had a great time and learned many new things. And, of course, we saw lots of fantastic costumes. We hope to see you all at Costume-Con 35!
Thank you to all involved. I had a wonderful time at CC34 and look forward to the next one. :)
So... is there a dead-dog party? :D
Reminder: Dealers room is open at 9am today. A full hour earlier! Closes at noon. Be sure to stop by for your last chance to get that item you've been thinking about all weekend!
There was a post made by an attendee earlier about an experience during a panel. Staff has worked with the reporters and panelist to reach a solution. The initial post has been deleted with the poster's permission. Please continue to bring any concerns to Costume-Con staff so we can work with you to resolve them.
Here's Dr. Sew & Sew in action at Costume Con 34! She had that hem in place with an emergency hem-ectomy! (That's totally a real thing.) Seek her out on the Con floor as she does her rounds, for any constuming emergency.....or just to say "hello", whatev's. She's super cool like that.
