Welcome to Rising Star! October 24-25, 2014 at the Harris-Jefferson Student Center, Bluefield State College
Want to meet some awesome people? Well, we've got awesome people in spades. There are writing guests such as Laura Lin, Stephen Sheets, Dan Delby, and Paul Dellinger, makeup artist Chris DeHart, artist guests such as Ashley Holohan, Mark and Amanda Davis, Seth Banner, and Chris Impink, musical guest White Plectrum, and the award-winning Bluefield State College Robotics team. If your tastes run towards to the supernatural, then you'll want to talk to the Sisters of Salem and the Black Diamond Paranormal Society. If, however, your tastes run more historical, then you'll want to chat with the Abingdon Historical Combat group. Check the Guests tab to see who else will be dropping in to share their niftiness.
Awesome Things to Do
You're thinking, "Well, that's great, but what happens if I run out of things to say to all those awesome people?" There are many, many things to keep you busy over the weekend. There's the anime room, video gaming, live-action role play, a Brony meetup, a costume call, a SF/comedy concert, fighting demos, art demos, a collectibles auction, and much much more.
And the Most Awesome Part of All? The Price
If you're a member of the Bluefield State College community (student/faculty/staff) with a valid BSC ID, then this convention is absolutely free! If you're not one of those aforementioned people, do not despair; the general admission price is only $5. It's hard to find anything these days that gives you so much value for so little cost.
