LexiCon 2017 is a FREE comic-con and fandom event intended to draw together community members who share similar interests and to provide library materials to those who enjoy pop culture. It features vendors, panels, cosplay, and gameplay, and displays for fans of comics, gaming, sci-fi or fantasy TV shows, movies and books, graphic novels, and anime.
Cosplay Costume Contests: Come to LexiCon dressed as your favorite character or in the spirit of your favorite genre and show off your best cosplay attire. There will be separate contests for children, teens, and adults. Prizes include 3-day tickets for 4 people to Oklahoma City Wizard World Comic Con and weekend passes for two to Tokyo in Tulsa.
Children's Crafts and Activities: Kids will delight as they create their own fandom-related crafts and participate in super-fun activities as presented by our friends from the WONDERtorium. You can make your own Minecraft torch, create your super hero signal, or construct a super hero vehicle with lighted laser pegs.
Table-top Gaming Room: Knight Arms of Stillwater will be running table-top game room at LexiCon. Games will include: Magic the Gathering, Takenoko, T.I.M.E. Stories, D.C. Comics Deck-Building Game Rivals Batman vs. Joker, Pandemic, King of New York, and Ticket to Ride. Everyone is invited to play regardless of previous experience.
Panels: Audience participation is the theme for panels this year at LexiCon. Fans of Stranger Things will have a chance to hear from some super-fans and share theories about the upcoming season. Star Wars aficionados will be talking about and seeking your ideas and opinions on recent and upcoming movies. Choose Your Own Adventure books will come alive with a comedy/improv panel with audience members getting to decide where the book will go next. Finally, fan-fiction enthusiasts will have an opportunity to learn more about the craft and discuss ways to make a name for themselves in the field.
Photo Ops: Stormtroopers, Jedi Knights, Mandalorian Mercenaries and many more of your favorite characters will be availble for photos throughout the event. Come get your picture taken with some of the best (and worst!) in the universe.
Artist Alley: Come see over 20 artists, authors, and vendors with fandom-related merchandise.
