ConNooga brings together pop culture creativity
Where can you go to find Doctor Who, Star Wars characters, heavy metal bands, and Disney arts and crafts for adults? Such a heavenly place is known as ConNooga and it’ll be at the Chattanooga Convention Center this weekend, part of the city’s rich heritage for pop culture conventions.
Along with all of the costumed attendees and over 500 hours’ worth of scheduled activities, a large portion of the convention is consumed by art, an integral part of every fandom and every inch of pop culture.
For example, noted comic book creator Shane Berryhill will be attending and sharing his expertise in the highly competitive and creative world of comics.
Award-winning costumer Ben Bowers will also be there, demonstrating the techniques he uses in designing costumes using fiberglass, worbla, wonderflex and more.
For aspiring authors, New York Times bestselling author Faith Hunter, known for the Skinwalker series, will be conducting a series of workshops including, “Your First Five Pages: Bait and Hook” which will show you how to grab readers’ attention in, you guessed it, the first five pages.
The convention takes off at Noon on Friday and will remain in orbit until Sunday afternoon. Don’t miss out on your chance to become the next award winning author or cosplay character.
