Apocalypse Later Roadshow
The Apocalypse Later Roadshow is a mini-film festival hosted by Hal C. F. Astell of Apocalypse Later. He'll present a curated 90 minute set of quality international short sf/f films on opening night, many of which are still working their way through the festival circuit.
The Apocalypse Later Roadshow began at LepreCon 39 in 2013 and has spread to a variety of conventions across the southwest. This will be Roadshow #35.
At the Movies
At the Movies is a favorite local fandom panel where you will get a sneak peak at trailers for some exciting upcoming movies. After the trailer presentation we will hold a free raffle for movie promotional material (T-shirts, baseball caps, special posters and whatever else the studios have sent us). If you like movies and like free stuff please come on in.
At the Movies has been a mainstay of the Phoenix con scene for decades, initially run by Barry Bard and, in recent years, by Len Berger.
LepreCon 45 will also feature a special 18+ version of At the Movies, where Len will give you a sneak peek at Red Band trailers for upcoming indie movies, with the more blood and gore the better.
Michael Senft, who runs the Sci-Fridays Book Club at the Poisoned Pen, will be leading discussions on Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire. Read or listen to it ahead of the event or come in blind, but beware of spoilers!
It is our pleasure to announce that CoKoCon will be holding a Charity Auction to benefit Joshua Tree Feeding Program, Inc., which has been feeding the HIV/AIDS community in metro Phoenix since 1988. 100% of proceeds will be donated to Joshua Tree.
Check out our dedicated page for the Charity Auction to see what items will be up for bids. The list is growing all the time.
Live Painting with Baron Dixon in the Art Show
Local Artist GoH Baron Dixon will be live painting throughout the weekend in the Art Show. This is a fantastic opportunity to watch a professional artist paint. Pop in and out of the Art Show during the weekend to see his work progress.
Meet the Guests
We'll host a Meet the Guests event, where our MC will introduce each of our Guests of Honor in a social environment.
The Phoenix Astronomical Society will be hosting Star Parties outside in the courtyard on Friday and Saturday evening, starting at 7.00pm. Come and look through their telescopes to see what you can see!
The Moon will rise on Friday at 7.40pm and be 99% lit in its waning gibbous phase. Maybe Mars and the Orion Nebula will be visible.
Treasure Egg Hunt
I have it on good authority that the Dread Fleet will be sailing into port on Easter Sunday to hunt for eggs rumored to be filled with treasure at LepreCon 45! I hear tell that they would be willing to have some landlubbers join in on the hunt. Have you got what it takes to join up with the crew to hunt for treasure eggs?!?!
Victorian Secrets Fashion Show
Come join us as our models, both male and female, give us a sneak peak into the intimate secrets of Victorian undergarments in a Victorian Secrets Fashion Show!
