The WHEN & WHERE:
Atomic Lollipop is a combined convention, carnival, music festival, and MASSIVE party entering its third year!
The 3-day event offers the usual convention attractions (vendors' room, artists' alley, fandom panels and workshops, etc), but our main priority is magic, mayhem, and getting messy so we’ve thrown in a ferris wheel, bouncy castles, aerial acrobats, nerdy burlesque, fire spinners and massive interactive events like a pillow fight, lightsaber battle, and “world's biggest nerf war” to the mix!
From hands-on workshops to crazy pARTicpatory activities and epic all-night parties, Atomic Lollipop is a unique convention experience designed for people who like to play, dance, discover, and geek out!

Loved it in year one and get more involved every year! Volunteering this time around on the crafting/costuming side of things. We've got everything from brain slug plushies to DIY Sailor Moon lockets planned, so feel free to shoot any crafting (or costuming) questions my way!
