Now that I’m home, I can officially post this! This past weekend was @221bcon and I was asked to draw their badge/shirt design this year for the 5th anniversary! I can’t thank you all enough for compliments I received while at my table!
It was an honor to draw! I actually got asked to sign some badges! ;A;
Re: Panels. I hope those kids have fun at panels if they're about That Fandom! Because after what happened, a lot of people don't even want to participate anymore.
Look, it sucks that Bad Things Happen In Fandom Sometimes. And it sucks that Some Really Cool People aren’t participating anymore because of it. That’s their decision and I respect it.
But let me tell you a thing: I still want to participate. My friends still want to participate. Now I can’t speak for everyone, but I guarantee you I am going to do my damndest to show everyone else who still wants to participate a good time.
I’m gonna moderate panels and give every one of my fellow panelists a chance to shine, to be clever and insightful for an engaged audience.
You can find us on Twitter (@HN221bcon)
Instagram (homelessnetwork.221bcon) as well as here on Tumblr. We will be monitoring all three locations throughout the weekend should you
need to contact us. Starting Friday morning we will be posting happenings, news, ride shares, lost and found, and pretty much
anything related to 221B Con so turn on those notifications! If
you’d like us to help you spread the word about something, just let us
know! Also, we’ll probably be live tweeting any panels we attend…fair
Fan Art Gallery
Featuring fan art from all fandoms! If you want to have a piece displayed, just let us know! Please remember they must be family friendly.
(If you have already contacted us about displaying your art just let us
know when you are at the hotel so we can meet up. We will arrive for set up on Thursday.) Many of these pieces
will be given away on Sunday to ONE LUCKY WINNER!!! See Games section
Food and Snacks
From fruit to granola bars to
trail mix to whatever else we find (or is donated). We’ll also have bottled water.
Sorry no sodas or alcoholic beverages provided, but
will have tea on hand and we’ll have coffee in the mornings. Feel free
to bring your own beverages! (please, you must be 21 to drink alcohol) Check the schedule for a joint event with @threepatchpodcast!
Games and Prizes
the Mustache on John is back again this year! Guess how many goldfish Mycroft has and you’ll be entered into a drawing for the Fan Art collection
displayed in the room! We’ll have coloring books, dominoes, and playing cards! Don’t forget
about our Door Decorating Contest…see rules here. New this year in place of trivia we’re having a Photo Scavenger Hunt! Watch for details!
Come Watch A Movie
have Asylum’s Sherlock Holmes (aka Sherlock and Dinos), Ghostbusters, Doctor Strange, Dirk Gently, and others playing throughout the
