Gatherings of Creative People

Who doesn’t love faires and conventions? I’ve been to a few fabulous ones myself. A few years ago I had the pleasure of working in a face painting booth at the Phoenix Fairy Festival, which is a small intimate. but wonderfully magical little faire and I really enjoyed working it!

I’ve also had the opportunity to model for a few fashion shows in comic-related conventions around the Phoenix valley, as well as attend the BIG comic convention in L.A. this last summer (it was very very big O_O).

And of course I love the Renaissance Festival and attend it every year! But the convention I REAAAAALLLLY want to attend is the Faerie Con.

It looks like so much fun! It takes place every November (next week, in fact.) in beautiful Maryland. And get this, one of the artist guests is Kinuko Y. Craft *squee* (if I you have not yet had to listen to me rave about her check out my Favorite Modern Artists post ;D )

In the program this year they are offering everything from live bands to panels about fairy tales in the media to lectures on mythical characters like Morgana Le Fey.

Now that I know about this, perhaps I will be able to make plans to attend it in 2013 *3*

Do any of those conventions/faires catch your eye? Have you attended any of them, are there any other related events you would like to attend? I am curious to know! 😀
