BayCon 2016

I’m back online. I haven’t devoted much time to writing over the last two weeks.  I have been writing a little every day, but most of the time has been devoted to preparing my costume and researching for my panels for BayCon 2016.

Speaking of which, my schedule is —

Costuming With Nontraditional Materials And Skills
Friday 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM, Connect 6
Can’t sew? Don’t limit your cosplay to fabric based items.

Cosplay Is Not Consent
Friday 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM, Synergy 5
That cosplayer is a person with feelings and boundaries. Our panelists discuss photography and etiquette for working with cosplayers.

String Theory
Friday 4:00 PM – 5:30 PM, Synergy 2
No, not that one. Come learn about geeky crafting with yarn- what patterns for fandom are out there and where to find them.

Variety Show 
Saturday 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM, Convene
The BayCon Variety show returns for its 3 rd year! Join our toastmasters The Library Bards on Saturday night. This year will put the V in variety, with a short play, juggling, singing, dancing, storytelling, and even a special burlesque treat (PG-13). And of course, our talented costumers showing off their latest creations… And the return of the Mixy Awards!

Are Cons Good For Your Health?
Monday 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM, Convene
Con crud and con fatigue from improper self-care are real issues. Are there also positive health benefits to being surrounded by your tribe when your health is poor?

Otherwise I will be wandering around the con.

I hope to be able to talk by the end of Friday since I’m doing panels back-to-back-to-back.  Fortunately I don’t need to use my voice in the Variety Show.  Otherwise, I can be an object lesson at the panel about con crud.
