Sci Fi Con Coming Up in Tampa

April 30 – May 2, 2010 is when you’ll be able to find a whole slew of Sci-Fi film and TV stars in Tampa, FL at Vulcan Events Sci-Fi Con. They promise that attendees can enjoy a myriad of events including autograph and memorabilia auctions, costume contests, innovative games, a dance party, autograph sessions, Q&A sessions and panel discussions with the best stars, and even special events and games developed expressly for sci-fi lovin’ kids. And of course, since it’s Vulcan Events, it’s the LOGICAL choice. (Get it? Vulcans...)

As you can see in the ad above, their guests include Christopher Lloyd, known for his portrayal of Emmett "Doc" Brown in the Back to the Future trilogy. (The DeLorean Time Machine will be making an appearance too!) But he also played Commander Kruge in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

Almost all the rest of the guests have donned a Star Trek costume at some point in their careers. For example Dean Stockwell was Star Trek:Enterprise, as well as Stargate SG-1, and David Lynch's Dune among many, many other things. Currently he can be seen in the new Battlestar Galactica series.

M*A*S*H’s Sally Kellerman had a memorable role as Dr. Elizabeth Dehner in the second filmed pilot episode of Star Trek, entitled "Where No Man Has Gone Before", opposite Gary Lockwood and William Shatner. Gary Lockwood (known for his role as astronaut Dr. Frank Poole in 2001: A Space Odyssey) and Sally Kellerman will be taking part in a special Q&A session (with photo opps) about the Star Trek episode that started it all.

There are more guests too, so check their website and then beam yourself over there!

Time for the New York Anime Festival

The New York Anime Festival starts this Sunday, Sept 20th! Okay, so it officially starts on the 25th and runs through the 27th, but there are a few events to enjoy even before the official opening, while you’re getting your cosplay costumes prepped and ready.

First, on Sunday, September 20th it’s Eureka Seven Day at Kinokuniya Bookstore. Celebrate the theatrical release of Bandai's Eureka Seven and the New York Anime Festival with giveaways, guests, maids and Gothic Lolita clothing sale.

Then on Thursday, September 24th is the official NYAF Pre-Party. The New York Anime Festival and Del Rey Manga are partnering in a joint celebration. Free and open to the public, they welcome NYAF attendees, anime fans, manga readers, industry professionals, and casual New Yorkers interested in the world of Japanese pop culture.

And after all that partying, there’ll be plenty of time for cosplay competitions. There’s a Masquerade where you can win a trip to Japan, five nights in a Tokyo hotel, VIP tickets to the Tokyo International Anime Fair, and $1,000 in prize money. And a Hall Cosplay Contest for those who don’t want to perform.

An Anime LARP is happening too, about which the NYAF website says, “An Anime Convention LARP is equitable to the most ridiculous and at times over-the-top mass crossover mash-up you could imagine.” Sounds fun! Costumes aren’t mandatory but are more than welcome, and pre-registration is required online.

A non-competitive Cosplay Variety Show, is available to showcase the “big, bold, daring, and experimental acts”. Registration is closed, but it’s sure to be a good show. And there'll be a Cosplay Dating Game! (Of course if you don’t find your perfect match there and then, you can always check out Soul dating site for fans of Anime, Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Animation, Comics, Video Games, Conventions, Cosplay and Fan-Fiction. )
