News and Updates on Necronomicon,
Tampa's SF Convention.
The Webpages are being update this week. If the pages look like this one, it's been upated. If the background is still the newsprint from last year, it has not been done yet. In the meantime, the Programing department has these news items:
COSPLAY AT NECRONOMICON
Once again, Cosplay Michael will be with us at Necronomicon. Look out for him in the halls and at the contest. He's become quite the star, even being invited to San Diego Comic Con as a panelist.
You can find updated information on the Costume Contest on the Masquerade page.
Our theme for the convention this year is Time Travel. You have plenty of time to cosplay to the theme if you choose. We look forward to seeing some awesome cosplays in the halls and in the contest on Saturday night.
Hall costume awards will be given out during the day Saturday.
The Milieux Workmanship Award will be given out Saturday night at the Masquerade. Lauren Podolak who is the owner of Milieux, the best costuming site on the web, will be choosing the recipient of this award.
We love cosplay and costuming, so get out your garb and join in the fun.
Necronomicon will be hosting a writers workshop on Sunday 11-1 p.m. We limit this to 12 participants who submit one page samples of their writing for our teaching panel to comment on. You may remain anonymous if you wish. Your sample will be read by one of our author panel.
Sign up will begin closer to the convention. We will post here and on Facebook.
BUBBA THE REDNECK WEREWOLF (movie and panel)
We will be showing "Bubba the Redneck Werewolf," a comedy (as if you couldn't guess) written and filmed by central Florida filmmakers. The creators will host a panel on making movies with a very low budget after the showing.
MONSTER FILM CHALLENGE
We will once again be hosting the Monster Film Challenge. This time, it will happen on Friday night after the fan cabaret. Information on how to be involved will be posted here and on Facebook as we receive it from the folks in charge.
That's all for now. Check back for late breaking headlines.
