Blythecon Brooklyn Merchandise!!

screen-shot-2017-02-17-at-6-20-58-pmSo this morning I had a great idea while getting ready for work. As I put on my Lularoe leggings I thought, “Hmmmmm… How awesome would it be to have leggings made from the Blythecon Brooklyn fabric?!!” Then Katherne Hardin, my Blythe idea enabler, suggested Redbubble. Well, For the last three hours I have been designing like a mad woman!! We now have a shop with some Blythecon Merchandise, and no markup!!
(FYI – I have never bought any of their products. Please read reviews before purchasing. I google searched Redbubble leggings reviews instead of relying on reviews on the Redbubble site)

Our Redbubble Shop!!

Help Us Make BCBKLYN Great!

To our Blythe Community,

Blythecon Brooklyn will be held this October! That’s only 8 months away!
We’re hoping to combine a few goodie bag/drawing ideas from our most recent Blythecons, but to do that we need your help.

We need donations! Drawing donations and goodie bag donations!
The more, the merrier!
Our community is full of creative, artistic, and generous people, please help us make this Blythecon awesome!

This will be a not-for-profit convention and any remaining ticket sale funds will be donated to the Department of Pediatrics at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC.
**All donations will be distributed to attendees on the day of the convention.**

Questions you may ask..

What can I donate?

Anything! It can be a small as little slips of paper with special coupon codes for attendees, to something as big as a custom doll or a *gasp* a Kenner. Nothing is too small or too big!

Will my drawing donation disappear and I’ll never see it again or know who won it?
Absolutely not! We will catalog all donations as they come in and let each person know we’ve received them. You will also be publicly thanked for you donation and hopefully we will be able to get a picture of the winner with their prize (Some people are camera shy)

Here is the Donation Form Page for anyone that wishes to pledge a donation.

Thank you!!
Heidi Corley Barto (Donations Wrangler)
& The Blythecon Brooklyn Team

Since we are in NYC and food is readily available, lunch will not be provided. We will be posting food suggestions on our web page and facebook page.

The venue is easily accessible by public transportation.

The Blythecon Brooklyn schedule will be announced at a later date and is subject to change.

PayPal ticket sales will show your transaction description as ‘Julie Romero’
Do not be alarmed. This is our beloved Julie Blythe’s real name.

FAQ’s
How many tickets will be sold?
We have 240 adult tickets and 20 child tickets. If for any reason the child tickets don’t sell we will release them as adult tickets.

What about children younger than 4 years old?
Children 3 years old and younger are free with the purchase of an adult ticket.

Why are you selling tickets so close after the holiday?
We needed to start selling tickets this year for tax reasons and to start paying off the major convention expenses.

Are vendor fees included in the adult ticket price?
Vendor fees are NOT included in the ticket purchase price.
We have reserved a limited number of vendor tickets to be made available once we’ve made our vendor selection.
Selected vendors will be sent a vendor agreement and a link to purchase their ticket and to pay their vendor fee.
If you have already purchased your adult admission ticket, you will be sent the vendor agreement and link to pay your vendor fee.

Will there be discounted tickets for my spouse or helper (vendors)?
Unfortunately there will be no discounted tickets for Blythecon Brooklyn. Every adult attendee must buy a full price ticket, as our ticket quantities will be limited. Just think of it as a bonus goodie bag for yourself 🙂

Why no lunch option?
Due to the vast majority of people with food allergies and diet restrictions it was decided that having people bring\order their own food was the safest route.
In NYC it is super easy to order food on one’s smart phone via seamless.com and have it delivered to the venue… If you have questions about how it works, ask Melissa. She orders food via seamless all the time. There will be water and snacks provided. There are also a few restaurants in the area surrounding the venue.

80’s Block Party!

image

The theme for BCBKLYN is the 80’s! Yup, it’s time to show your age and bust out the door knockers and aqua net 😉

The 80’s were a time of real self expression and togetherness. A time before cell phones & the internet. A time where you spent most of your day outside hanging out with friends. That’s what we want the mood to be for BCBKLYN, a place for friends to hang out and bond over what we love.

The fashion and art of the 80’s is something none of us will forget so we thought it was a fitting theme for Brooklyn. We all have a favorite style from back in the day, whether it’s hip-hop, pop, punk, business,etc. the 80’s had it.

So get your outfits ready and we’ll see you in October!

xoxo!

 

 

Official Doll of BCBklyn 2017

Every year a doll is picked to be the official mascot of the US Blythecon. It can be a specific stock doll (like kenners) or a certain theme (redheads) that people will bring to the con and get together for a group photo.

For 2017 we thought the perfect doll to represent Brooklyn Blythecon would be Tan Girls.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Every and any doll is welcome to the convention but we will be having a group photo with all the tan/dark girls.

We can’t wait to see all the amazing dolls that you bring, it’s going to be amazing!

xoxo!
