Midnight Loot Extravaganza

Rated: Everyone

Produced By: ALL-CON Production


The first 'drop' is of Mardi Gras style bead necklaces. This serves two purposes. They are easier to throw which allws the volunteers to perfect their aim and style, and the necklaces weigh down the receiver, making it a little more of a challenge for the next two drops.

The second 'drop' is of stuffed animals. The first drop is of smaller, better defined objects. This drop has animals of various sizes (3''-5'') thrown from above with a soft bouncy impact, making them more difficult to catch and allowing them to be thrown harder without fear of injuring the recipient.

The third 'drop' is the most challenging for both the volunteer and the receiver. It involves five hundred balloons being individually dropped with 1-3 prize items inside. The reciver must decide whether to hold the balloon (inflated) in order to continue trying to catch more, or take the time to pop it and retrieve the prize(s) in order to be less encumbered to catch more balloons. Volunteers have to try to throw a wobbly, light, prize laiden balloon accurately enough as to possibly hit someone with it below them.

Pajama Jammie Jam

Rated: Teen

Produced By: ALL-CON Production


Wednesday night, before the convention even opens, once the work has been done setting up the rooms and preparing for the big first day, it's time for the ALL-CON Pre-Con ''Pajama Jammie Jam'' Pajama Party!

Wear your favorite footies or flannels (silkies are fine too as long as you are covered and decent), bring your morning-style mugs for coffee or cocoa and settle in for a 'lock-in' style* evening event! You can bring your favorite book or magazine if you just want to chill, or ALL-CON has arranged some unique activities that won't be offered at any other time during the convention! Don't wait to hear if the rumors are true!

Not comfortable wearing your 'jammies out in public? Consider throwing on a robe over your street clothes, and putting up your hair so you look like you're ready to settle in for the night. It's perfectly acceptable to ''party with your pants on''.

Come to the Pajama Party and be a part of what everybody is going to be whispering about all weekend long!

*While ALL-CON is patterning this event after a classic lock-in, the doors will actually be open to come and go as you please.

Photo Scavenger Hunt

Rated: Everyone

Produced By: ALL-CON Production


Each day ALL-CON offers a different Photo Scavenger Hunt theme. The daily Hunt List is issued at the Volunteer Desk to participants who register for the scavenger hunt. (Lists for subsequent days are not provided in advance.) When you register for the scavenger hunt will be assigned a tracker ID to tag your photo entries with.

When you submit your photo entries via text from your mobile device, there should be two photos for each entry. The first is the actual entry and the second is the same entry but with you in the picture. For example, if the entry is a flower then the first photo would include the flower and the second photo would be the same flower with you in the shot. Photo entries do not have to be made in the same order they are listed on the Hunt List.

The text message should be your tracker ID, the list item name or number, and description of the subject. For instance, if you are playing an Alphabet List and you are going to sumit a photo of a cosplayer portraying Captain Jack Sparrow for your ''P'' entry, and your tracker ID is SA35 then your text with the photos would read: ''SA35 P Pirate''. (For this example, you could have also chosen ''C'', ''J'', or ''S'' for Captain Jack Sparrow. Legitimate creativity drives the contest.)

During the day entries will be judged and some may be rejected. Common problems include: subject out of focus; subject does not qualify (Pikachu is not a ''Raccoon''); or no second shot received.

Participation awards are given for completed lists, once verified.

Please practice good photo etiquette when taking photographs around the convention.
