Spectacularium is Filled

We are both very excited and terribly sorry to announce that The Spectacularium of OctopodiCon 2012 is now filled.

We are terribly sorry because we are still receiving applications and there is no more time or space for more performers.  We are taking applications for OctopodiCon 2013 if you are interested.  We have a list started for 2013 and we’d be glad to place you on it, too.

And we are very excited because we have some truly awesome people performing at OctopodiCon:

First and foremost is Professor Elemental! You’ve seen his YouTube videos of such classics as “My Fighting Trousers” and “Cup of Brown Joy“, come and experience his teabag remix and joie de vivre in person at OctopodiCon!

The unstoppable filker Tom Smith, singing such classics as “Transylvania Polygnostic University Fight Song” from Girl Genius and “The Illuminati Polka”, will be singing earworm songs to and for us.

Professoress Veronique Chevalier is traveling in reverse from California to Oklahoma to show us how steampunks on the West Coast entertain.

Bland Lemon Denton, of widespread local fame, will grace the Spectacularium with their blues-y presence.

Triskelion, also of widespread local fame, will take us to a different time.

David Goad, an up and coming local performer, will entertain us with some Oklahoma style steampunk music.

Cassia, a woman of grace and beauty, will dance the seraglio dances for us on stage as well as teach and talk about them in the classrooms.

We’ll also have BobZilla, of widespread local fame, will teach us about vaudeville, women in vaudeville, and perform some classic Victorian Vaudevillian acts. She will also attempt to break the world’s record for sword swallowing – a feat she has spent much time and effort in perfecting.

The rest of the Spectacularium will be filled with Convocation and Commencement, the essential Masquerade, a Charity auction benefiting service animals, the SteamMaker’s Ball, slideshows by the famous Dr. Grymm and Ay-leen the Peacemaker.

All of these amazing people will be emceed by the dazzlingly dapper Professor Peter Pixie!

And that’s just one room at OctopodiCon 2012!

Peter Pixie!

Peter Pixie is confirmed as OctopodiCon’s MC! I first met him at OSE and was charmed by how delightful he was and how hard he worked to make the convention a success.

I hope he won’t have to work as hard at OctopodiCon, because I expect everything to continue onward as smoothly as it’s gone so far, and he merely has to be his fascinating and luscious self.
