Denver area Myths and Legends Convention is all about the favorites. This annual convention focuses on what so many sci-fi fans love the most: ‘Firefly’, ‘Doctor Who’, ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Supernatural’, ‘Game of Thrones’, and ‘Dresden Files’. This shiny shindig will take place Aug 12-14, 2016 at the Ramada Plaza Denver North. An event for all ages, there will be plenty of activities like tea dueling, dancing, super fun panels and programs, make-and-takes, and an irresistible vendor room. The always popular art show will have plenty of unique hand-made items. Did someone say cosplay? Yes of COURSE the costumes will be out in full force. The cosplay alone is worth a look with the possibilities of doctors and Captain Jacks, layer cake dresses, companions, wizards, and maybe a Targaryen or a Lannister. It is time to break out those sewing needles and glue, their “Jayne hats,” fezzes, and wands ready because MAL Con is less than two months away.
Along with the non-stop geeky fun, there are the guests. MAL Con’s Guest of Honor this year is none other than ‘Dresden Files’ author Jim Butcher. He is also known for ‘Cinder Spires’ and the ‘Codex Alera’ series. The Musical Guest of Honor, The Doubleclicks, will be entertaining that weekend, and come meet the Artist Guest of Honor, Peri Charlifu.
Adult weekend passes are available for the perfect price of $35 and rates go up on July 1st. For those who pre-register before August 1, 2016, they will receive the full-color commemorative badge to collect. Child weekend pre-registration tickets (age 7-12 and requires adult attendee accompaniment) are just $17.50 and will also receive the commemorative badge. Weekend and day passes will also be available at the door. To make the most out of that convention experience be sure to book that hotel room at the Ramada with rooms starting at just $99 with the con rate. Hotel guests will start out their day with a free breakfast.
