Attention Dr. Who, Firefly, Buffy, and Harry Potter fans, 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. This upcoming shindig will involve all the sci-fi and fantasy goodness surrounding Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Firefly, Buffy, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, My Little Pony, and of course, pirates. Imagine a convention with fan favorites such as Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Once More With Feeling, a genuine Browncoat shindig and a Wizard's Yule Ball. The rest of the weekend’s events include Dr. Who: 50 Years of Companions, a Dr Who fashion show, and even helpful panels such as "So you want to turn your hobby in to a business.” There will even be a Cards Against Humanity game Saturday night which will no doubt create some interesting memories to say the least.
Myths and Legends is a new convention for the fandoms that don’t really have a home in the Rocky Mountain region. Although this is their first convention they truly have things well put together. 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 is an amazing program of activities, panels, and musical performances by Pandora Celtica and The Kilted Man. Pirates will also find their home with a Pirate King competition and the 7th Annual Buccaneer Bash will be hosted on Saturday night. There will be panel rooms where fans can discuss the many facets of the various fandoms, 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.
Tickets for the event are $45. 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.
