Klingon Makeover for Charity!

We are excited to announce that John Paladin, a SFX makeup artist with over 10 years of experience has graciously volunteered his services to help us raise money for the Lupus Foundation of Georgia by auctioning off a complete Klingon makeover. Mr. Paladin was JG Hertzler’s personal makeup artist for the acclaimed Internet movie “Star Trek: Of Gods and Men” and will be doing complete Klingon makeup for Robert O’Reily and JG Hertzler here at Dragon*Con…and now you have the opportunity for him to give YOU a complete Klingon look…a kind of Extreme Klingon Makeover! All you have to do is swing by our Charity Events booth in the Marriott (located in the Marquis Registration booth across from the Dragon*Con store) and silently bid on this once in a lifetime opportunity. The winning bidder as of 3pm on Saturday will be on stage in the Hilton Crystal Ballroom with Mr. Paladin while 400 or so fellow Trekkie’s watch you transform from mere mortal to…Klingon! You will be able to show off your look at our Guinness World Record attempt for the largest gathering of Star Trek costumes and wear it proudly for the giant Star Trek party that evening. And the best part? It’s all for charity!

Charity Auction for Lupus

You may be asking, what is Lupus? Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can cause damage to any part of the body. In some ways, lupus represents a kind of allergic reaction by the body, in which the immune system sees the body’s own healthy tissues and cells as foreign, and attacks them. It is an incredibly unpredictable disease that can range from mild to deadly. There is no cure for lupus and more than 1.5 million Americans have lupus; that’s more than the combined number of those affected by MS, cystic fibrosis, cerebral palsy, sickle cell anemia, leukemia, and HIV. Please help us raise awareness and much needed funds for research! We will sporadically be placing auction items up on eBay throughout the year so keep an eye out for more details. Thank you in advance for all your support!
