Local Sci-Fi Con on Sunday!

Hey Kids,45488_645087355511819_796029683_n

I’m psyched up for a local Sci-Fi convention coming to town this Sunday.   It’s RoberCon, the first Sci-Fi Convention to be held at the historic Roberson Museum in Binghamton NY!

Binghamton NY was the boyhood home of writer/legend Rod Serling, (The Twilight Zone), and our pride grows deeper every year!  There’s the annual Rod Serling Film Festival, where local students write and direct their own 5 minute movies, and if you’ve ever seen The Twilight Zone, you will see occasional references to Binghamton, most notably in Walking Distance  where the main character longs for the joy of his childhood, riding the merry-go-rounds.  The guest speaker at this convention is Annie Serling, daughter of Rod, who will read from her very intimate new memoir, As I Knew Him, My Dad Rod Serling.    There will also be fan forums on Dr. Who, Star Wars, Fantasy and, of course Trek, and tutorials on costume building and gaming. There will be @ 20 vendors selling everything a geek could want, however…

  My big reason for going is to be in the Costume Contest, competing as, well, lets just say, an iconic character form Star Trek!   I suspect my effort will be small potatoes compared to what I’m sure I’ll see there.  Devotees of ‘cosplay’ can be precise in every detail!   I’ll be passing out business cards for  this site too,  and I’ll post pictures and the results next week.  If any of my readers are local and want to see me make a total fool of myself, come on down!

Here’s all the info about it in this link.  Should be fun! I gotta finish my costume!
