What has two fins and is going to the California (online) Mercon next weekend (July 10-12)? THIS MER-GAL!
And you can, too! The whole convention is digital this year — all the panels will be presented via Zoom, and half of them are free (the ones that aren’t are between $10 and $15 each). You can register for the events separately or buy a weekend pass (good for everything except the children’s “swim sessions”) and they’ll e-mail you a list of Zoom log-on IDs.
Hint: I did the math and, if you want to attend all the paid sessions, the $62 weekend pass is your best bet. Separately, they add up to $105.
I’m personally looking forward to the Dive Bar Mermaids’ Q&A, the Society of Fat Mermaids Panel, the Representation Panel, and the Bubble Ball (finally, a reason to break out the glitter & Mochi eye shadows, the face scale stickers, and the sequined ocean top…ok, as if I really needed a reason, but YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN).
Fin-terested? Sail over to CaliforniaMermaidCon.com and check out the schedule! Also, I think there’s still time to enter the Sand Castle Contest — create a fluke-friendly palace out of natural or man-made materials, snap a few pics, and send it to the Mercon team for a chance to win prizes! This is my entry for the “All that Glitters and Sparkles” category.
