Welcome to Rising Star! October 23-24, 2015 at the Harris-Jefferson Student Center, Bluefield State CollegeWebsite under new management! Please bear with us as we update this site for Rising Star 24!
Want to meet some awesome people? Well, we've got awesome people in spades. There are writing guests such as Stephen Sheets, Dan Delby, and Paul Dellinger, makeup artist Chris DeHart, artist guests such as Ashley Holohan, Mark and Amanda Davis, 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.
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, robotics 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.
