Geek Con

June 10, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Get your geek on at the Robbins Library Geek Con!
Saturday June 10th from 10 – 4!
Join us for a celebration of all things geeky!
From superheroes to anime to sci-fi/fantasy and beyond – embrace your inner geek, meet other fans, and partake in a variety of activities!
We’ll have episode screenings throughout the day, trivia, a costume contest, face painting, food, games to play, and more!
This is an all ages event, so come alone or bring the whole family!
Show off your cosplay skills by coming in costume or protect your secret identity in plainclothes.

Face painting will be available from 1 – 4, location TBD.

We’ll be screening episodes of Adventure Time (TV-PG) and Young Justice (TV-PG) in the downstairs Community Room from 10am – 11:30, and episodes of Ghost in the Shell anime (TV-MA) & Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV-14) in the same place from 2 – 3:30.

Video games and board games will be set up in the 4th floor Conference Room – times TBD.

Cosplayers are asked to be considerate of others when creating their costumes!
Armor & prop weapons will be allowed providing they do not pose a threat to others by way of sharpened metal edges, spikes or bladed surfaces.
Prop guns will not be permitted.
You may display your prop weapons only as costume pieces. Do not swing or brandish your prop in any way that could be considered unsafe or threatening.

Thank you for your cooperation!
