There is a new convention in town. Shiny Productions presents the Myths and Legends Convention this Sep 27-29, 2013 at the Sheraton DTC at 7007 S Clinton St, Greenwood Village, CO. The name Shiny Productions alone will grab the attention of Denver area Firefly fans. This upcoming shindig will involve all the sci-fi and fantasy goodness surrounding Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Firefly, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, My Little Pony, and of course, pirates. Myths and Legends is a new convention for the fandoms that don’t really have a home in the area. Although this is their first it sure seems that they have got a hit on their hands. According to organizer Nikki Ebright, “I’m excited to see fans like myself gather together. Other fandoms have communities in Denver (like the anime community and now the comic book community), and I want that for my fan family.”
The programming of activities, panels, and musical performances by Pandora Celtica and The Kilted Man prove that they already have a handle on the non-stop entertainment. Friday evening will feature a “Yule Ball (in the Fall)” and a Browncoats Shindig. Saturday will include interactive panels with the new Alliance LARP, the hugely popular Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and a Pirate King competition. The annual Buccaneer Bash will be hosted on Saturday night, while Sunday morning con-goers will awaken to a Hobbit Second Breakfast. Dr. Who fans will be in for a treat with a full afternoon Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Celebration. There will be panel rooms where fans can discuss the many facets of the the various fandoms, an interactive all-ages activities room as well as a gaming room for drop in board gaming, and scheduled events like the ever-popular Liar’s Dice tournament, RPGs, and a popular trading card game.
Pre-sale tickets for the event are $40 for the weekend, $20 for kids. With hotel rates for the event at $74 per night, you never have to miss a thing. Come hang with old friends, meet new ones, and be sure to be a part of this fun new event.
