Oz Magazine Covers Cardboard*Con 3

Cardboard*Con has totally sold out! Check out this self serving article from Oz Magazine!

From the article…

“DragonCon is SO played out”, claims a mysterious guy named “Captain Drew”, founder of an upstart science fiction convention called CardboardCon, held in downtown Atlanta every March since 2010. Billing itself as as “The World’s Most Affordable Sci-Fi/Fantasy Cardboard Costuming Convention”, this year’s Cardboard*Con featured some amazing cardboard costumes and at least one well known attendee was spotted wearing: Candice Accola who plays Caroline Forbes on the UPN network’s popular Vampire Diaries series, making one wonder how many other celebrities were there in disguise…

The costumes at CardboardCon ranged from dumpster chic to blocky-yet-accurate renditions of your favorite comic book super heroes like Spider Man and Captain America. A costume contest was held at Trader Vic’s, sponsored by an adhesive tape called Joe’s Sticky Stuff. Prior to the costume contest, the convention (which seems suspiciously more like a pubcrawl) convened at Meehan’s Pub in the Westin Peachtree Plaza before parading up Peachtree Street, with a stop at the Hyatt Regency, and a meet-up at the Marriott Marquis’ Pulse Bar. Perhaps Captain Drew is right… maybe DragonCon has some new low-cost competition!
