Vul-Con is almost upon us here in the Valley of the Sun and our friends Jay and Rick who are organizing the two day event are sharing a special discount code for you to save $5 off your convention badge. This is an exclusive to the gaming gang! Just register at vul-con.com and at the checkout enter the code “gaminggang”. That’s all you have to do and you’ll save 11% (or in other words, five bucks) off your preregistration. Admission is $50 at the door. Remember Vul-Con will be held Feb 25 & 26, 2012 at the Phoenix Convention Center!
Here’s also the latest from the Vul-Con team regarding some new contests:
We’ve announced three themes for Phoenix Vul-Con 2012 – our overall Roman Theme, Dust Day Arizona 2012 (Weird World War II) Saturday, and Steampunk Sunday. We want to enhance the feel, the fun, and the eye candy – so we’re challenging Cosplayers to come out to Phoenix Vul-Con 2012 in their best costumes that fit these themes. We’re kicking off that concept with a contest and prizes. Email us your picture wearing your Roman, Dust, or Steampunk costume (not too high of resolution please – nothing over 300KB) and judges from the Vul-Con Team will pick the top three. We’ll post the top three pictures and maybe a few of the others here on Facebook. The top three will each receive a complimentary pass to Phoenix Vul-Con 2012. All others will receive a coupon for a discounted membership. That’s just phase one.
Phase two – At Phoenix Vul-Con 2012, we will hold another costume competition for those who turn out in the appropriate theme on the appropriate day. We’ll gather the Dust-costumed Cosplayers on Saturday, the Steampunks on Sunday, and those in Roman garb both days – four contests, each judged by a panel of Senators and Guests. The winners will receive a prize and a Vul-Con Trophy.
Send your picture for phase one to [email protected]. We can’t wait to see your pictures and look forward to seeing you (in costume of course) at Phoenix Vul-Con 2012!
