Mysticon 2011 in Roanoke?

EDIT: I totally meant MystiCon *2012* lol. Still thinking in 2011, haha ^^;

There is a Fantasy/Sci-fi convention called MystiCon in Roanoke, February 24-26 (the weekend after Katsucon). I was wondering if anyone here attended last year, and could tell me what it's like? It doesn't look like a very big convention, but it seems inexpensive and I plan to be visiting my boyfriend in Roanoke that weekend anyway. I'm a huge Sci-fi nerd, and I think this would be a great opportunity to check out the Sci-fi/fantasy scene before I attend Dragon*Con for the first time this fall.

I guess I'd like to have an idea about how big the con is, what sort of costumes everyone will be wearing, and the sort of crowd that attends.

Is there anyone here who has attended before? Or even heard of it? ^_^;

I heared about it, after a friend and I went to Mars-Con, haven't really found anything to give us a feel about how it's going to be though...Your best bet, is anything that has a Scifi/fantasy feel to it would be fine. I know Steam-punk was really popular at Mars-con...

Sooo I still plan on being in Roanoke that weekend to visit my boyfriend, but it looks like I can't get that Friday (Feb 24) off of work because I am taking off Thursday & Friday of the week before for Katsucon. So I am not sure if I am going to attend anymore. If I can find someone to carpool with to Roanoke from Northern Virginia early Friday evening, then I'll go to the con. Not sure if I'll cosplay there though, I only have video game costumes at the moment. What is everyone else wearing?

Does anyone know someone who might be traveling to this con from NoVA who'd like a carpool buddy? I can totally pay for my share of gas.

That's a real shame. I've been thinking about trying to go to some non-anime cons, but I'm not into larp (funny that spellcheck doesn't call me out on larp) and I don't feel it wise to lug my armies down there for something I can do in my hometown.

There were two people who set up a table they had a large talking Darlek from the Tennant series and the front panel of the TARDIS they built. so I spent about half of the four total hours I was at the con chillin with them.

Did anyone get to meet Richard Hatch?! I grew up watching reruns of the original Battlestar Galactica on the SciFi Channel and I wanted to see him SO BAD!!! I am SO SAD that I missed going and didn't get to see him. He was gonna sign my vintage BSG t-shirt and take funny pictures with me and we were gonna be best bros!! ;_; All my geeky dreams... shattered. *sob!* /melodrama

OMG Nekko! I am soooo jealous right now!!! He'll be at Dragon*Con this year I think, but that convention is so huge I probably won't get a chance to see or talk to him.
