CoastCon 34 – Con of the Living Dead hit Biloxi, MS for the 34th time March 11- 13, 2011. There was an impressive display of pictures from many of the past cons and some great people/staff who are dedicated to this con!
Though the theme was Con of the Living Dead, I’d have to say a good many of the costumes were Steampunk. And of course Storm Troupers, Vader, and some unidentifiable Con goers.
K-9, the Robot was delightfully underfoot all day on Saturday. The small brown lump you can barely see on his back behind his neck is actually a miniature Chewbacca that K-9 wore in the Infamous Intergalactic Krewe of Chewbacchus Mardi-Gras Parade on March 6th in New Orleans.
Every day at CoastCon the Inebriated Lab brew crew could be found wandering around in their lab coats with a drink in hand. This lively bunch are home brewers love SciFi-Fantasy Conventions and the Con parties that are always on hand.
And these guys are more than willing to share their expertise and their brew! Not to mention their new addition of ‘TigerBlood’.
The usual array of gamers were on hand, as well as the D20 Girl Gamers group who the SpaceGypsies originally met at the New Orleans Wizard World Con.
The CoastCon34 had a room dedicated to Larping and Cosplay.
All in all this convention – though small – was entertaining, informative, and lively!
