Rock star—I mean, LI-CON Vice-Chair Heather does a personal appearance

HeatherLI-CON Vice-Chair and head of Programming Heather Dawn will be doing programming at Voltaire’s Wicked Necro-Comicon 2014. This is your chance to meet the amazing multi-personality—I mean, multi-talented Heather.

The convention is February 21-23 in Bridgewater. We’ll put her schedule up here as soon as we have it.

***UPDATE***

Heather Dawn will be speaking at Voltaire’s Wicked Necro-Comicon on Saturday, February 22nd at 4:00pm!

Interested in Japanese demonology?  Check out her panel “Kappas, Goblins, and Oni’s… Oh My!”

Is that a mysterious shadow on your Shoji screen? Are you having strange dreams? Ever wonder what happens to your soul when you sleep? This panel will tell you everything you need to know about the beasties in Japanese ghost folklore, how to survive a Yurei attack, and where you can “catch them all” in Anime.

Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!”

–Robin Williams

LI-CON will bring a grand tradition back to Long Island: room parties at conventions. Room parties are a chance for convention-goers to just hang out together in a social way. (Yes, nerds socialize!) They can also be used for a business purpose. For instance, many times a convention team will throw a party at a different convention as a way to interest people in attending. (We’re throwing a party at Arisia, for instance.)

Parties usually start around the time panels slow down, so plan to spend Saturday evening at room parties.

If you’d like to throw a party, please email parties@li-con.org. We have only a very limited number of party rooms, so act fast!
