Necronomicon

Saturday, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

$30 | 12 person maximum capacity

 

Tired of always picking up your own socks?  Wish you had some help with your homework?  Search for answers no more!  Come to YukomiCon GEM and build your own book to summon the Dead and all your troubles will be gone…

You will make a Mod Podge Necronomicon using paper towel, cotton balls, tissue paper, paint, all on top of a thick sketch book.

The Golden Snitch

Saturday, 3:30-4:30 pm

$20 | 12 person maximum capacity

You like that ball, don’t you?  You must be a natural Seeker then, like You-Know-Who…aww, you know we’re talking about Harry Potter, not that other guy!  Accept the role of a lifetime and catch your first snitch for 150 points!

You will make a golden snitch with paint, wire, ball, and mounted on a wood flag (painted by you of your House colours).

String Art

Saturday, 5-7 pm

$25 | 12 person maximum capacity

We know you’ve been raised in believing you shouldn’t cross the strings, that it “would be bad”.  But just in case you’re a little fuzzy on the whole good/bad thing, try to imagine how cool it would look on your wall.  Hammers are bad though – important safety tip, thanks Egon…

 

You will hammer a design (choices made at sign up) using nails onto a plank of wood, and coil your string in chosen colours around the nails.  Mounting not included.

Silhoutte Jars

Sunday, 11:15-12:5 pm

$20 | 12 person maximum capacity

Faeries, tree spirits, fantastical beasts – whatever you want to call them – live in the world around us in secret.  Rumour has it that if you leave a special twinkle jar out, you might be able to catch a glimpse of their shadow within.

 

You will make a silhouette mason jar with your choice of fairy, Totoro, or dragon; materials and battery powered light provided.

My Little Pony RPG

Sunday, 12:30-1:45 pm

$15 | 6 player maximum

Great adventure, tons of fun!  A Beautiful heart, faithful and strong.  Sharing kindness, it’s an easy feat, and magic makes it all complete!  Come to Ponyville and try out he all new Friendship is Magic Roleplaying table top game!  Create your own pony headband, pick some dice, and get ready to adventure - party cannon not included!

 

You will make a My Little Pony felt headband before playing a table top mini-adventure in Equestria – dice set and bag for each player to keep.

Deathstar Pokéball

Sunday, 2-4 pm

$25 | 10 person maximum

What could possibly happen when two worlds collide??  Could the science of a Pokeball be related to the Force?  Could Luke have destroyed the Death Star (spoiler!) if space Pokemon existed?  Is 42 really the answer?  Bring two fandoms together in the third dimension and discuss the possibilities while using Perler beads to geek out!

 

You will make a medium to large Death Star Poke ball made out of Perler beads, mounted on a canvas; all materials except mounting hardware provided.
