ConCarolinas

Join us, either for the weekend or for a day, and get a serious geek-on.

ConCarolinas is a Sci-fi, fantasy, horror convention. Panels cover writing, gaming, fandom, podcasting, cinema, ghost hunting, and soooooooooo much more.

Tickets for the event can be purchased at their website. You can buy a weekend pass or a one day pass. If you can only come for one day I would suggest Saturday. It will have the most costumed characters and panels.

If you do plan on coming for the weekend and planning on staying at the hotel book early.

Cosplay is encouraged, but not mandatory, just remember this is a family event. There is a costume contest. Past winners include members of The Charlotte Geeks. If you want to take a picture of your favorite cosplayers, just ask.

      Well that makes sense, I mean, it's awfully hard to tell when your names been yellowed. ;)

      That, and we did have the conspiracy to hide from you during the entire con. We had support from all those folks from the 501st that were informing us of your movements.

    I have yet to go to anything, as I live just far enough away to not no a soul in Charlotte, and that makes it hard to go on my own =/. I need to make friends but it's a catch 22. Can't make friends without being there, can't be there without friends. Boo!

    This is an unofficial meetup: There are three of us that are planning to see the movie “After Earth,” on Friday 05/31/2013 at 1:20pm at AMC Northlake 14, before going to ConCarolinas,.If anyone is interested and free for the afternoon, please feel free to join us. I will be in front of the theater around 12:45 pm. This is not the IMAX version of the movie; it is just the regular 2D version.

      Your son will have so much fun. Is he going to wear a costume?

      1 · May 22, 2013

    • Ryan H.

      I bet he will, he's into a great deal of science fiction themed shows. He may wear a costume as he does have an Iron Man outift from Halloween.

    I'll be there, if you miss me in my camp and gear, then I did my job. But seriously, I'll be the on in the SG-12 patches

    Hi, I see only one writing event listed on the con site. Last year there were like 20. Schedule looks pretty empty. Am I missing something?

    May 7, 2013

    • Jada

      Generally our schedule is out 3 to 4 weeks before. Our Programming Director was in a car accident and had a family emergency so we are two weeks behind. The good news is that we will also be using the LiveCon app. http://livecon.net/­

      Okay, I like to go Sunday because that's when the writer track stuff happens, but I guess I'd better wait and see if that changes before I get my ticket.
