Last night Cardboard*Con announced its third annual running of the cardboard. Here’s what they’ve shared:
Cardboard*Con 3 is expected to follow the a slightly different route from last year, as we will BEGIN on the OTHER side of Peachtree Street at Meehan’s Public House Downtown, from whence we shall begin our first PARADE!!
7:00pm – Meehan’s Irish Pub at the Westin Peachtree Plaza
8:00pm – 8:30pm – PARADE to Marriott Marquis (route TBD)
8:30pm – Pulse Bar at Marriott Marquis (COSTUME CONTEST)
9:30pm – Trader Vic’s in the basement of the Atlanta Hilton
10:00pm – Panels and Photo-Ops at various hotels
Unfortunately we have had to DOUBLE badge prices from last year. Last year’s badges were FREE. You do the math.
You MUST WEAR FULL CARDBOARD COSTUME to be in our convention. NOT necessary to put much effort into your costume!!!!
Don’t worry!!! Make it sloppy, have fun.
MOAR cardboard is better than just a cardboard hat.
You will feel LAME if you don’t have a full cardboard costume.
Staff & Volunteers (there is no pay)
- chief of security
- costume contest coordinator
- liaison with vendors (there ARE no vendors)
- a gopher we can all send on “runs” to get us coffee
- stripers (people to put stripes on other people)

- Sexy Girl from “that one movie with all the lasers”

(it’s a “secret”)
Share Enjoy, Use Your Brain
Cardboard*Con is an unsanctioned event where we meet at some bars and have some drinks. Please observe all rules of the establishments you visit, as we aren’t really even real. We were never here. Like phantoms, we were. POOF! Gone.
NOTE: J-45b cardboard supplies from Copehagen will be unavailable until AFTER this year’s con, so the panel on European cardboard folding techniques has obviously been cancelled. Sorry folks. Write to BRODRENE HARTMANN with your complaints 🙁
