The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I can announce we will have a fan table at Conapalooza Oct 12-14. Rooms are 113 a night.
http://www.conapalooza.com
Once again Joker, his wife Amanda, and I will be manning the table. Might have a photo background by this event. Will update with more info.

Again there will not be a FanBoy Expo in Oct so this will be the October con.

Thanks!

Greg

Alright screw it. I'm in!

Details yet to be worked out. My son was hoping we can bust out a "Futurama" family theme at our next event, so not sure I will have the whole crew outfitted this trip. I will definitely gear up myself when appropriate. But I will be there and looking to help out however possible (gear for the table, manning the table, contributing to the prospective panel?) However is helpful.

I was hoping you could make it! I was told that the details for the table will be sent out next month as for hours and such. Do not fear we have one! Gabe will be handling the panel if we get one. Once I get more information I will post it here. I am working on getting a backdrop for photos. Might need your help with another idea. Once again so glad you are attending!

Thanks!

The panel will be kid safe and PG rated. I would like some help on some of the prop questions as I do not have some of the stuff downpat memorized yet.

Well I'm your man. This melon has quite a bit stored in it and plenty of fun facts ready to real off.

As for a PG event, my own 3 and 7 year olds will be in the crowd. That won't be a problem and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I will try to live stream or record the panel regardless.

Alright, I got my 3-day passes (doubt I'll do all 3 days, but the way the pricing breaks down, why not?)
Got my hotel booked.

Is it just us 3? Any buzz from others?

Any 'lurkers' out there going to swing by?

I will be making an effort to stream the panel on facebook live. We need to get as much footage as possible for the group to re-use without licensing concerns...

We are booth 7 in the main foyer with the other fan and convention groups.


Our vendor/artist check-ins and set-up will begin on Thursday at 12:00 (noon) until 8:00pm, however, since we will have minimal security in the hall on Thursday Night, we recommend you set up on Friday from 9am-2pm. Ware opening to the public at 2pm and you will need to be set up completely by then. We also request no early-day break downs on Sunday. Break down will start 5pm on Sunday.

PUBLIC Dealer Hall/Artist Alley and Walk of Fame hours are: Friday 2pm-7pm, Saturday 10am – 7pm, and Sunday 10am – 5pm.
While you need to stay open during dealer hall hours, you are welcome to stay at your table later, at your discretion.

Because your table is in the hallway, it will NOT be locked up for the night. So if you have any valuables, we suggest you take them with you each night. IF you can’t, but can move it, I can lock it in the dealer hall for the evening.
Honestly, most things will not be messed with (flyers/banners) and we will have security in the halls at all times, however we cannot monitor each table.

We will have a check in table for all vendors/guests/artists at the front door of the convention center. You are welcome to come in through the front, or to enter around the back at the loading docks – but you MUST check in with us to get your information and passes. We’ll have a packet waiting for you with everything you will need. You can park either in the front parking lot, or in the parking garage for the duration of the con (and if you need to leave to go to your car, you are more than welcome to – just don’t forget your badge!). You can load/unload at either of the two loading docks located at the BACK of the convention center (you will see them, they are visible from the road). You can also use the front entrance to load in.

Just a reminder here are the convention center and Conapalooza Rules for vendors:

The following is a list of rules to which a dealer/artist must adhere to during Conapalooza. The Vendor Director reserves the right to make changes or exceptions and add rules as they see fit. Anyone found to be in violation of these rules will receive a warning and further violations will result in expulsion from the convention. If problems continue, further steps will be taken.
1. Have your badge on your person at all times during convention hours.
2. No exchanging tables or booths to a second party.
3. All displays must be secure and safe to avoid potential injury while applying to all fire codes.
4. No dealer/artist may display outside of their purchased, designated space.
5. Displays with adhesive, thumbtacks, etc. which could cause damage to the venue are not permitted. Goffer, painters or electrical tape may be used to secure things to the floor as long as no damage will happen upon removal. Absolutely nothing may be secured to the wall.
6. Noxious fumes (from paint, t-shirt presses, etc.) or excessively loud noise (from televisions, stereos, etc.) is not allowed. Please respect the health and rights of the people around you. Music can be played at a low volume.
7. While inside the dealers/artists room, you are expected to act in a respectable manner.
8. Any artist accepting commissions that require a live model must conduct these commissions in a way that does not disrupt the flow of traffic and/or other artist, dealers or attendees.
9. Please reasonably clean and organize your area. This includes cardboard boxes and other trash.
10. Adult material is to be displayed in non-offensive and tasteful manner.
11. Be sure to check each attendees ID to assure that they are of age before selling or presenting adult materials.
12. Bootlegs: We expect compliance with all laws regarding intellectual property and reserve the right to ban entire product lines which are known to be forged or bootleg versions of original products. If you are found to be selling bootlegs at the convention you will be ejected from the convention with no refund.
14. Non refundable or transferable unless event is canceled.

We will be there setting up around 8-9am. Long day and I expect an even harder night and painful as the predator costume gets painful after about 12 hours.
