Jacksonville’s longest running multi-genre convention is gearing up for year 6. Come out and see what Ancient City Con has in store for you this year! They’ve added one extra day and will be running Fri. July 20-Sun. July 22. The con is located at the Hyatt Riverfront in downtown Jax.
Three Muses Candy Keane will be a cosplay guest, along with Brema and Bridget. We will also be doing 2 panels this year:
Saturday 12-1PM – Costuming as a Business – Ever wanted to make money off your hobby? Maybe play dress up and call it “work”? Come hear how Three Muses got started and went from my kitchen table, to a little studio, to a real boutique. There will be a Q&A session so have your questions ready!
Sunday 3-4PM – Intro to Corsetry – Trying to make sense out of all the terms associated with corsets, bustiers, cinchers, etc? We’re here to help! We’ll start with a brief history of corsetry and then will show samples of each, including what’s actually inside the corset. We’ll also show our lacing technique, how to put on your corset and share tips and tricks on wearing them and getting fitted for the right size.
There are 2 after parties this year! Friday night after the concerts there will be a 21 & up lounge on site featuring music and a cash bar. This is part of the convention so you do need a con badge for this party.
Then Saturday night will be our 2nd Annual ACC After-Party held at Dos Gatos, which is within walking distance of the Hyatt. Dos Gatos mixes up some of the best cocktails in town and will be featuring $5 fireball shots in honor of our theme this year: Cowboys & Aliens! This party is also 21 & up, no cover, no con badge required. So everyone is invited to party like it’s 1799!
