New Tracks for 2004

Welcome to Dragon*Con 2004! This year we welcome four brand new programming tracks for your pleasure:

Costuming: For those interested in cosplay, putting on the Ritz, dressing scary, or looking downright wacky, this track is for you. Panels will offer advice, hints and tips, and give attendees an opportunity to ask questions on how to give that Stormtrooper, Klingon, SCA, or “indefinable other” costume that extra pizzazz. Amsterdam (Marriott)

Gothic Journeys: Hosted this year by the British dark fantasy author, Storm Constantine, this track is for all you Gothic Lolitas, vampires, angst-ridden poets, and sundry, brooding creatures of the night. Fairlie (Hyatt)

Independent Film: The place to be for film-lovers and filmmakers. Learn how to do F/X on a low budget and SFX make-up techniques, hear film distribution hints and tips, and network with other folks in the biz. Also the home of the 2004 Dragon*Con Film Festival—see the chosen works and then listen to the producers and directors discuss their award-winning films. Learning Center (Hyatt)

Young Adult Literature: If you’re a young person who loves science fiction and fantasy, or just young at heart, this track is for you. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Muppets, Narnia (and more!) explored, deconstructed, and celebrated. Also a great track for parents and educators. Marietta (Hyatt)
