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.)
Our Badj Committee are stoked to reveal the artwork for Cardboard*Con 2012!! This year’s artwork is entitled “Flapper” and was designed by Scrubney Diddlewomp of Jonesboro, Georgia. Scrubney (who goes by the nickname “Mike”) says his inspiration was Edna Scrub’s cat.

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!!
At the end of July a group of Cardboard*Con veterans traveled to Birmingham, Alabama, to lead a workshop for aspiring boxplayers at Play-On-Con. It was tremendously rewarding to see attendees realize how much fun it is to work with paper in crafting a costume. One of the most important things we have learned about boxplay is that there is no correct style when building a costume – it has to suit your personality and style. Your way is the right way, for you, but everyone needs a starting place, which is the intent of this article by Captain Drew.
Gaming convention Play On Con 2011 is in the books but not without a touch of cardboard! This year a team from Cardboard*Con finally make it to the correct meeting room of the correct sci-fi con at the correct time, and the room was stocked with lots and lots of cardboard – the perfect recipe for teaching nerds some cardboard costuming techniques from some of our award-winning boxtumers!!
