Things to pack for Special Events

Special events are convention activities besides panel programming. Here are some things related to special events to bring with you to con:

  • Props, costumes, and t-shirts proclaiming your fan loves for the Thursday Night Dance: Fandom Mash with DJ Wüdi! If you have items you don't mind lending for a photo shoot, please bring them to the info table Thursday before 7 p.m., or bring them with you to the dance. This could be phasers, a Crow T. Robot puppet, Funko Pops, a lightsaber, anime eyeglasses, a Green Lantern ring, etc.

  • Your own Nerf blaster and eye protection for the Sunday Nerf BYOB (Bring Your Own Blaster) game!

  • Your finest Fae wear for the Saturday Night Dance: The Fae Ball! Also bring any props you wouldn't mind sharing for photos.

  • Everyday things someone in a B-movie might have, for the It Came From the Late, Late, Late Show LARP sessions on Friday (movie monsters) and Sunday (alien invaders).

  • Dress-up items for the midnight Rocky Horror Picture Show after the Friday Night Dance. No toast, rice, or squirt guns, please (we want the hotel to welcome us back next year).

  • Dice for gaming! Check out scheduled gaming options on Guidebook and the website!

  • Personal information cards for the Speed Friending sessions on Thursday and Friday. We'll have slips of paper available for sharing contact information as well.

  • And as always: comfy shoes, a reusable water container, snacks, and whatever makes you happy!

Spotlight on Sunday Panels

In a previous newsletter we highlighted Thursday's happenings, with programming starting at 2 p.m. Did you know that we have lots of panels on Sunday? Here are just a few:

Masquerade Deadlines are Approaching

If you are planning to enter the Norwescon 46 Masquerade, we need your registration and your audio/video file by March 25. Last-minute registrations are allowed at the pre-masquerade meetings on Friday and Saturday, but it is hard to troubleshoot problems day of. All of the information can be found on the Masquerade web page.

Bring Out Yer Dead...er, um, We Mean Submissions

The Norwescon 'Zine (the official daily news sheet for Norwescon 46) is going back to its roots. That means your 'Zine will be interactive and welcomes your submissions to zine@norwescon.org.

What kind of submissions, you ask? (Even if you didn't, we're going to tell you anyway.) We have a couple new columns just waiting for your input. One is called "Blast from the Past," where we'll do a roundup of our favorite geeky films and why we love them (with a focus on the past five decades that Norwescon has been around).

Another is "Con Stories," which are micro stories (just a couple paragraphs) of interesting or funny interactions you have at Norwescon 46. Think: The New York Times' "Metropolitan Diary," and you'll have a good idea of what we're looking for.

Photos are always welcome---costumes, groups having fun, that elusive clear photo of a Sasquatch.

And a perennial favorite: the "Overheard" column. The things you're only going to hear at a sci-fi/fantasy convention. Tidbits of delight that have you chuckling with fannish glee because you aren't in the mundane world.

Send your content and ideas to zine@norwescon.org. And look for the 'Zine each morning of Norwescon 46 at 10 a.m.

Content Sponsored by BritCon

We are excited to announce that BritCon is sponsoring several panels at Norwescon! Come enjoy their panels and learn about BritCon and their one day event on August 4, 2024.

Info for Single Pattern Contest Entrants

If you're entering the Single Pattern Contest, please follow the link to sign up so we know how many people to expect. However, no pre-registration is required. Just bring your entry to Cascade 5 & 6 at noon Saturday for judging, and return for the Show & Share at 1 p.m.

Norwescon 46 will be March 28--31, 2024 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport in SeaTac, Washington. Join us for a weekend of sci-fi and fantasy fun!
