1) Hawaii: Do I have to write anything here? I mean, seriously? All you need is a pair of eyes and you can see for yourself that Hawaii is one of the most beautifully exotic locations on the planet. On top of that, the weather is hot, the people are welcoming, plus The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, where the convention is being held, is a top rated five star hotel. The con rate is $169 per night, with 50% off the normal rate (all rooms have ocean views).
Magic: The Gathering events, a painting workshop for figurines, an event to learn to play trading card games, and an evening of Cards Against Humanity! The RPGs start with a custom Star Trek Campaign, and will introduce you to the new Everyverse RPG system, and help you ride the wilds of Paniolo Deadlands, set right here in Hawaii.
3) Cosplay: If you're a cosplayer, I bet you anything you'd love to cosplay at Hawaii Con 2016. Just picture yourself, decked out like that hero from that comic book you enjoy reading, prancing around in the Hawaiian sun with the rest of your fellow cosplayers. And if you're up for doing that, you can also enter their cosplay contest too. Go on. You might win.
4) Guests: So far a number of high profile guests will be attending the con, and the list includes: Eugene Roddenberry Junior, Nichelle Nichols, Walter Koenig, Jonathan Frakes, Chase Masterson, Aaron Douglas, Tahmoh Penikett, Patricia Tallman, Manu Intiraymi, Vic Mignogna, Michele Specht, plus many-many more.
5) Workshops: Now I know that it has the word 'work' in the title, but please believe me when I say that it won't be like work when you go along to the workshops the con has on offer. These workshops involve hands on education with some of the top experts in their respective fields, and are exclusive for only 40 con attendees. Please check out the facebook page for further announcements.
7) Adventure: Unlike other conventions, this one will allow you to take part in an active adventure with some of the aforementioned guests. So just imagine, stargazing with a Roddenberry, surfing with a Sirtis, or better yet, chasing a Masterson.
8) Star Treks 50th Anniversary: Need I say more? No. I don't think so either. But just to make certain, click here to see what Eugene Roddenberry Junior, the son of the creator of Star Trek, Gene Roddenberry, has to say about this celebration.
