In 2016 the Cardboard*Con Convention was transformed into an opportunity to give Cardboard Americans everywhere a voice in the world. Too long have we been marginalized, set aside, stacked, sorted, weighed, and delivered unto others who have a far greater voice than ourselves. NO MORE!! In 2016 Cardboard will have a say in the way this country is run!!!
It’s our 6th Anniversary and my how we’ve grown!! This year we’re going to have a sexy Senior Prom, so start working up your nerve to ask that special someone to put on their best all-cardboard sci-fi/fantasy costume and join you on the (to this point entirely theoretical) dance floor. Please: no making out in the gym. BE SURE TO ORDER YOUR BADJ EARLY to avoid crowding and Bavarians.
It’s the 5th Anniversary of the biggest, most badass Cardboard*Con there ever was!! Will YOU be there? People not wearing cardboard will be escorted out of the dumpster dance.
Cardboard*Con 4 followed the same route as 2012, beginning on the west side of Peachtree Street at Meehan’s Public House Downtown, from whence began our 2nd ANNUAL PARADE!! (which simply means crossing the street at marked crossings to go across the street to the next location, obeying all traffic laws)
Some fantastic photos from the third actual Cardboard*Con of ever!! All sorts of silly people showed up that night!!
Cardboard*Con 3 followed a slightly different route from last year, beginning on the OTHER side of Peachtree Street at Meehan’s Public House Downtown, from whence we began our VERY FIRST PARADE OF EVAR!! (crossing the street to go across the street to the next location, see below for more.)

If you missed CC2011 you missed a fun time! Our convention crossed paths with the Southeastern Theater Conference (SETC) and we had to share the hotel with those theatrical buffoons! If you haven’t seen the video take a couple of minutes to see what Cardboard*Con is all about!
Cardboard*Con was accidentally founded by Captain Drew of the Cardboard Troopers (a ragtag group of untalented costumers). The official mission of Cardboard*Con is to promote the art of cardboard costuming (which the Captain called “Boxplay”), but the truth is that it was created to meet chicks who are willing to wear garbage.
The very first Cardboard*Con in history was held on Saturday, March 6, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia and was widely regarded to be an internet scam, due in large part to the low quality of the first website which only featured an enormous image of the first Cardboard*Con Badj and the following announcement:
