There's less than three weeks until MISTI-Con, the Harry Potter experience coming to Laconia, New Hampshire on May 9-13. MISTI-Con, an event you won't want to miss, includes a tri-wizard style challenge, a masquerade ball, and actors from Harry Potter *and* Doctor Who! Did we mention they're transforming an entire lakefront resort into the ministry? Yup, they've thought of everything.
The wizards and witches behind the conference recently revealed their full schedule and opened signups for Family Feud, Harry Potter Jeopardy, hula hoop & poi workshops, Whose Wand Is It Anyway, and more. There's even a workshop where you can learn proper wig care for the cosplayers out there. All sign-ups can be found here so get going because space is limited.
In addition, tickets for a meet & greet photo session with Ellie and Joseph Darcey-Alden (Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2, Doctor Who's "The Snowmen") are now available. Photos are $20 (for singles or groups) and must be purchased in advance. The folks behind these photo sessions are The Enthusiasts, an awesome group of cosplayers-turned-photgraphers that are ready to make dreams come true for MISTI-Con attendees. They'll take 2-3 photos and you select your favorite to be printed as an 8x10. To see some of their previous work, check out their album from the Aeternitas 2011 on Facebook. Tickets for these sessions are available for a limited time only so get yours today!
If this is your first time hearing about MISTI-Con, don't sweat it! There's still a few tickets remaining for this unforgettable and immersive fan event, but hurry: tickets will not be sold after April 30 so register today. As for reserving a room at The Margate (which has been fully booked for weeks), MISTI-Con recommends either obtaining a room at overflow hotel The Landmark (be sure to mention MISTI-Con) or finding roommates at host resort The Margate via their online forum. If you're attending and want to volunteer at MISTI-Con, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
MISTI-Con can't wait to reveal all the amazing secrets they have up their robe sleeves. Stay up to date with 'all things MISTI' by following them on Facebook or Twitter and by visiting MISTI-Con.org. There's been some really cool posts lately from the folks behind the experience. And remember: you bring the wands, we'll bring the magic! See you in a few weeks!
