Don’t miss the chance for two surreal experiences in the same weekend!

Salvador Dalí, a flamboyant and imposing figure with his upturned waxed mustache and perpetual arrogant expression, was famous for having said “every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure: that of being Salvador Dalí.”

Well, now you have the chance of experiencing Salvador Dalí as well!

Immerse yourself in Dalí’s world Labor Day weekend. Bring your Dragon*Con badge to the High September 2nd through the 5th and get $5.00 off an adult admission to see Dalí: The Late Work. Enter Dalí’s world now!


That’s right, we are going for three world records this year!

Last year, 903 of you came out and helped us make it into the Record Holder’s Republic book for the largest number of people dancing to Thriller!

It was so much fun we decided to give it another THREE tries! And no, it is not for the record number of Stormtroopers we can fit into an elevator! This year we are going for a Superhero Costume record, a Star Trek costume record and even creating a brand new world record for the largest Steam Punk photograph!

For more information, visit us at worldrecords.dragoncon.org today!

Dragon*Con is Proud to Announce the Addition of Scott Bakula, Brandon Routh, James and Oliver Phelps, and More!

Dragon*Con may only be twenty-two days away, but we are far from done! Just a few of our exciting new guests and performers are:

Scott Bakula best known for his portrayal of Sam Beckett in the series Quantum Leap for which he won a Golden Globe and four Emmy nominations, has gone on to play such memorable parts as Captain Jonathan Archer in Star Trek Enterprise and Stephen Bartowski on Chuck. He can currently be seen TNT’s series Men of a Certain Age.

Former fashion model, Brandon Routh is best known for his role as Clark Kent/Superman in Superman Returns. Currently, he can be seen portraying Daniel Shaw in seasons 3 and 4 of Chuck, and in Scott Pilgram vs. the World as Todd Ingram an arrogant, narcissistic bass player that derives psychic powers from his vegan lifestyle.

James and Oliver Phelps are identical twin English actors, best known for playing Fred and George Weasley, respectively, in the Harry Potter film series. Recently, they helped plant trees at the National Forest, in Leicestershire—ensuring the wood that makes the Harry Potter broomsticks would be around for the next generation of wizards!

Don’t miss any of the late night action! Come rock out with WEEP featuring Doc Hammer, Pandora Celtica, Gavin Goszka, Ego Likeness, Leslie Fish, and join steam-punk madness with The Extraordinary Contraptions!

More than forty other guests added just this week! For a complete listing of the 2010 guests and performers, visit the Dragon*Con Guest List today!


Dragon*Con Joins the Madness at the High Museum of Art

Madman or genius? Whatever you call him, Salvador Dalí was a master of the unexpected. From melting clocks to an éclair on Alice Cooper’s head, Dalí rebelled against convention like no one else. A purple velvet suit? He wore it. A crazy, twisty mustache? He sported it. A little black book that read like a who’s-who of 1970’s pop culture? He had one.

Immerse yourself in Dalí’s world Labor Day weekend. Bring your Dragon*Con badge to the High September 2nd through the 5th and get $5.00 off an adult admission to see Dalí: The Late Work. Enter Dalí’s world now!


Super Heroes, and Star Trek, and Steampunk, Oh My!

Look up in the air… it’s a bird… it’s a plane… no! It’s a super hero changing history while boldly going where no one else has gone and breaking world records along the way!

Last year, 903 of you came out and helped us make it into the Record Holder’s Republic book for the largest number of people dancing to Thriller!

It was so much fun we decided to give it another THREE tries! And no, it is not for the record number of Stormtroopers we can fit into an elevator! Although… just kidding!

I Dream of Jeannie 45th Anniversary, World Record Attempts, and More!

July 30, 2010 Posted by D*C Newsletter Administrator

 
Join Us as We Celebrate the 45th Anniversary of I Dream of Jeannie with
Larry Hagman, Barbara Eden, and Bill Daily

With a nod of her head and a blink of her eyes, Jeannie (Barbara Eden) will whisk you into her magical world! This mischievous genie feels only unabashed exuberance for using her magical powers, granting her master’s every wish – even when he doesn’t wish it. And what a master! Astronaut Tony Nelson (Larry Hagman), in a state of perpetual befuddlement over his wish-granting sprite, along with his best buddy, the equally befuddled Roger Healy (Bill Daily), try to hide Jeannie and her mad-cap antics from their peers and superiors, particularly the ever-suspicious shrink, Dr. Alfred Bellows!

Join other fans from all over the world as we celebrate the joy and laughter I Dream of Jeannie has brought to us over the last forty-five years! Check your Pocket Program at the show for panel times, autograph sessions, and photo opportunities.
