NecronomiCon Kickstarter

The organizers of the 2013 NecronomiCon have launched a Kickstarter drive to cover the event's administrative costs. Because of the emphasis on scholarship and genuine research, not to mention the more pop culture aspects, I think it's deserving of support. A number of the artists regularly featured here are planning to attend and there's a good chance the convention will host some prop-specific programming.

I like the idea of a literary convention in Providence, and pleased they called it NecronomiCon-Provicence as there is already a long-standing convention called Necronomicon that has been held in St Petersburg, Florida for the past 30 years. The idea of a Providence based Lovecraft convention is tantalizing.

I will be there as a vendor and possibly doing a prop-making workshop. A few other Mythos artists will be doing the same.

@ CoastConFan

The organizers really seem to be on top of the opportunities having the event in Providence provides. The sheer number of scholars on hand should make it memorable.

@ Jason McKittrick

I'm glad to hear that. I know they've reached out to quite a few propmakers.

I was fortunate to attend the Last Necronomicon in 2001. There is NO other venue in which to celebrate HPL. If you can afford to attend, please do. You will be amazed.

I'll try to attend....and bring my entire prop collection.
