What's On for 2023?
Convention ProgrammeWe're working on a number of programming items. Watch this space for more information.
This year's theme for cosplay is Anniversaries. Lots of anniversaries with round numbers are worth considering in 2023:
|30th||Babylon 5||Who will dare to wear a full-body Babylon 5 station outfit? You could put someone's eye out!|
|30th||The X-Files||Who shall you dress as? Mulder? Scully? The CSM?|
|40th||The Colour of Magic||The Discworld has so many characters to choose from. Who's your favourite?|
|40th||Beetlejuice||Dress how you like just please don't say that three times fast.|
|60th||Doctor Who||Who is your favourite Doctor? Your favourite companion? Your favorite villain?|
|70th||Fahrenheit 451||If you want to come as a fireman, that's fine. Just don't burn any actual books.|
|90th||Doc Savage||Here's your chance to show up in jodhpurs and a ripped shirt.|
Of course, there's no reason you should limit yourself to a round number. Some really great things have round-ish anniversaries, like Red Dwarf's 35th, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy's 45th, The War of the Worlds's 125th. Heck, even ArmadaCon is now up to its 35th anniversary; anybody want to dress up as a young Gary the Orc?
What other anniversaries can you think of?
60' for the 60thFor the 60th anniversary of Doctor Who, some crafty people are trying to create a really long scarf. Would you like to join them?
This year we have two authors making ArmadaCon their official UK book launch event.
