VCON-Vancouver’s Annual Science-Fiction and Fantasy Convention celebrated its 38th at the Delta Vancouver Airport Hotel in 2013. Hosting workshops on cocktail making “Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of Rum,” Bellydancing, origami, model painting, and even “Pattern making for corsets.” There was a little something for everyone to be able to sit down and mind-meld over.
The convention also hosted a ton of amazing special events like the dance party, and the book launch. Not to mention the various fundraisers going on everywhere, the art auction, and my personal favourite, the costume contest! Which I thought was a brain melting collection of amazing people creating one of a kind costumes and cosplay outfits that totally left me wanting more. And as if all of that wasn’t enough, there was a fantastic artist galley full of comic writers and craft vendors with everything from bookmarks to a Tardis made from Lego’s, Star Wars baby onsies to hand-crafted
newspaper corsets and T-shirts to 10 sided die earrings. All unique and wildly creative items and right in front of the artist that created them! (more…)
