The TARDIS to appear at Retro Con 2013!

June 4, 2013 Leave a comment

Well-known 10th Doctor fan (and costumer) Brian Terranova of http://www.kasterborous.com/ has graciously offered to bring his awesome lifesize TARDIS prop to Retro Con for fans of Dr Who to take their picture with! We saw it at Wizard World Philly this weekend and it is highly impressive!!

The police box design of the TARDIS has remained virtually unchanged since Dr Who began in the early 60’s, so this prop will be a hit with fans of old and new Who alike! We thank Brian profusely for his generosity!!

We plan to put the TARDIS right next to the DeLorean time machine replica, which may mean a pseudo-recreation of this well-known piece of art…

The First-ever Skelly Award!

April 24, 2013 Leave a comment

Our good friend Jack Doud borrowed our vintage Skeletor bubblebath container recently. The reason? To make a silicone mold out of it to create an awards trophy for Retro Con 2013!

The trophy is made out of solid resin and has been painted a beautiful shade of gold , with an engraved metal plate attached to the bottom. Dubbed the “Skelly Award”, this will be an additional prize awarded to the 1st place winner of the Retro Con 2013 costume contest (along with a $70 cash prize)! Come out in costume and try your luck!!

Here’s an additional look at the unpainted statue, next to the original Skeletor bubble bath container in was cast from…

Using a GPS

November 5, 2012 Leave a comment

As the time for the show draws near, we wanted to give everyone a heads-up. We’ve been told that the Station Avenue address for the expo center doesn’t work with some GPS units/mobile apps. If this is the case with you, the expo center site recommends you use this address…

1601 Egypt Road Phoenixville, PA 19460 (Upper Providence Township)

It’s for the deli/pizzeria down the road. From there look for the signs for the expo center.

Thanks and we’ll see you at the show!! =)
