Charity & Cosplay
WWWC8 is not just for the galactic enthusiast, it is also for charity! There will be a raffle to benefit Kids Need to Read.
Since drama is the name of the game for Wild Wild West Con, you can be sure there are cosplay events to boot. PROGRAMMING can be found on the WWC8 site relating to costumery, cosplay and performance. There is a fashion show on Saturday that guests of ALL AGES are encouraged to participate in. After all, you never know WHO might show up…seriously, I very much expect Dr. Who fashionistas (eyes the invisible WWWC8 crowd).
If you cannot afford to attend this event DON’T FRET! They are still looking for VOLUNTEERS. Your time will be compensated with a free pass for each day you work.
So grad your sonic scredriver, away shuttle or steam engine and hurry on over to Wild Wild West Con 2019!
