Guests and Tables Galore!

August 25, 2013

As schools begin to start their curriculum and vacations begin to end, we bring guest announcements and news!

First, we have a new guest joining us as an Artist Guest of Honor.  Michelle Czajkowski, the artist, writer, and animator of Ava’s Demon, will be a part of our Artist Alley all weekend.  If you haven’t yet read the comic and seen the stunning pieces that grace it, then you’re missing out!  Be sure to take a moment to catch up on it.

Returning with their Jail N’ Bail and fantastic costumes are The 501st Legion.  Have your friends escorted to an Imperial prison…for charity of course.  Also coming back is World Events Productions, the awesome team behind Voltron: Defender of the Universe.  2014 is a milestone year for the heroic lions as they celebrate 30 years of keeping the universe safe.  Plan to stop by their celebration panel and meet the fantastic team!

Next, we’ve got our own tour and celebrations to announce.  On September 6th, we’ll be at the St. Louis Science Center’s First Fridays event, Casino Royale.  Our new free-to-play slot machine will be on location, if you think you’re lucky enough to win a weekend pass.  Also, we will be at Project Comic Con on September 21st and 22nd.  Join us and Can Town St. Louis in collecting canned goods for those who have suffered at the hands of super villains.  A charity prize raffle will be going on as well, so don’t miss out!

Our final announcement is a new event entirely.  Our parent company, Dynamic Midwest Events & Promotions, Inc., will be running a costume workshop on March 1st, 2014 at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, IL.  Midwest Costume Academy promises a great day for costumers of all skill levels and enthusiasm to meet and learn from a variety of speakers.  Be sure to like our Facebook page in order to stay up to date on event information.
