Only Two Weeks To Go!

We’re on the home stretch. SCGC 2018 is just around the corner. Are you panicking yet? I’m not panicking! Stop panicking!

Let us recap all of the wonderful and interesting and wonderful things that’ll be on offer at this years show:

To kick things off, the evening before the event, we’ll be hosting a ‘Movie & Pizza Night’ at Cinema & Co. where you can hang out with us, eat pizza and watch The Transformers: The Movie (1986).

Then, on the day we will have 50+ guests, vendors and exhibitors; including big name artists, indie comic creators, illustrators, comics and collectibles vendors, cosplay guests, arts and crafts stalls, indie game creators, retro video game vendors and a selection of authors.

Waterstones will be making a welcome return!

Swansea’s own Gamers’ Emporium and Swansea Comics Collective will be there, rocking their stuff, too.

We also have a range of free activities for you;

We will be running two Cosplay Competitions. One being a craftsmanship competition where costumes will be marked by our team of judges Tasha from Sew Swansea, Iron Warrior Cosplays Dyfrig Griffiths, and Russell from Cosbont. There will also be our ever popular Cosplay Masqurade competition for those who just want to show off their costume and have a good time.

Various panels, covering a wide base of fandom, will be held throughout the day in our lovely new panel room. Come along, take a load off and listen in on the experts.

Various display teams will be on hand to show you the ropes when it comes to card, table-top and war gaming. One such display team will be Warlord Games which will be lead by none other than Andy Chambers! The learning will also come courtesy of Asmodee UK, Swansea University Role Play Society, and Swansea Wargames and Boardgames Club. Plus, a team of volunteers from Gamers’ Emporium will be running Magic: The Gathering demonstration games all day.

Tickets can be purchased from The Gamers’ Emporium, The Comix Shoppe, Or Cinema & Co. Swansea.

Exhibitor Spotlight: Sarah Elliot

Sarah was kind enough to answer a few questions for us to showcase her work, and what she will be bringing along to SCGC2018.

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Sarah Elliot and I’m an author from the North East of England who attended Swansea University as a Post Graduate Student back in 2007-2008

What you will be bring to the con.

My collection of novels, including the finally completed Amethyst Trilogy and a small selection of short stories. Plus, Mini Ace, my con travelling alpaca plushi who likes to get his picture taken with as many cosplayers as possible

A little bit about your comic/product/stall.

I write fantasy, supernatural romance and short horror stories. I have recently just finished publishing the Amethyst Trilogy which is a series about twins Ekata and Dymas – half vampire, half werewolf hybrids referred to as Volf’s – as they try to stay alive when the whole world wants to steal their mystical powers and their struggles with love throughout all of this adventure. I also have a one-shot story called a Simple Wish about twins living in different dimensions being able to spend one day together by making a wish to do so and a short comic story about a half orc barbarian going off after a vampire count who has stolen his jewel.
For those who like horror, there’s the Strange Anthology which features twelve original short horror stories by twelve separate authors – one of themwhose me – and they all revolve around a stranger appearing in some creepy way. The Collector is my story in this and features a mysterious woman tracking down a dangerous man because his name is on the list to be collected.
