Con-G:Geeks@Home Rewind to 2023
Only find out about us this year and sad your missed 2023? We got you covered (at least for some of our panels and events). These were recorded live last year.

WINGS AND THINGS
Hosted by CarrHunger Creative
When interpreting the world of fantasy, more often then not, wings, wizard staffs, magic wands and crowns come up. We have been making such things for production and cosplay for many years and, even though we custom make for others, we can never discourage anyone from learning. We will show you how we first did it and give you a peek at how we’d do it for a customer. Who knows… maybe one day we’ll do a project together one day.
FAN FILM AND Q&A: Indiana Jones and the Raider of the King’s Tomb
Indiana Jones and Laura Croft are sent off to South America to recover a recently told treasure within an ancient temple known as The King’s Gauntlet. Will they succeed or will other forces off worlds attempt to stop them? Join Jack Buchanan (director producer) for a Q&A after.

THE OWL HOUSE: WE NEED A DRINK
Do you like mad science? Do you like drinking? Do you like Owl House? Then hoot hoot, have you come to the right place! In this panel, your not-professionally trained mixologist Teri has come up with a set of Owl House-themed cocktails for us to make together! Prepare to be entertained and tipsy! In preparation for the panel, we have provided a list of ingredients you will need. Most of these should be easy to find at your local grocery or liquor store.
GET THE LIST!
Note: We have organized the ingredients in no particular order to avoid spoilers. In case you want to follow along with only one or two of these drinks rather than buying a whole mini-bar worth of alcohol, you can click on the SPOILER link to get a list organized by drink.
