GIRLS OF THE CON to sponsor annual Costume Contest during INFESTATION IV on March 13th

MarksterCon is proud to announce that Atlanta's own GIRLS OF THE CON will be sponsoring (and judging) the annual annual Midnight Costume Contest during INFESTATION IV on March 13th, 2015.

If you'd like to participate in the INFESTATION IV Costume Contest, make sure you sign-up at the GoTC registration table by 11:30pm (inside Club Famous) with the actual contest kicking off around Midnight.

The Costume Contest is open to both male and females aged 21+ and all types of costumes are encouraged. NOTE: There will be a limit on the number of people/costumes entered into the contest so get there early to ensure you'll be able to participate. Doors open at 9pm.

For those of you who may not have been introduced to GoTC (Girls Of The Con) they have become a staple within the Sci-Fi/Con community in the Southeast, being founded 6 years ago. Since then they have produced 6 full production calendars (2011-2016) and have worked with some of the best costumers/cosplayers in the industry. See more of them at www.GirlsOfTheCon.com and become a fan of theirs at Facebook.com/GirlsOfTheCon and follow them at Twitter.com/girlsofthecon

Friday the 13th announced as return date of INFESTATION 4 in March 2015

Pictures from the 3rd annual INFESTATION in 2014
It's official - Friday the 13th (of March, 2015) set for INFESTATION IV!

Costumers and freaks alike will converge on Atlanta, GA again as we reach the halfway point to Dragoncon. And with that, witness the return of INFESTATION for a 4th year. The annual event will be extra special in 2015 as it'll fall on Friday the 13th and sure to draw it's biggest crowd yet.

Hungry for a good time (and an excuse to break out their favorite costumes) attendees will revisit CLUB FAMOUS in the North Druid Hills area of Atlanta. This is the same venue that helped make INFESTATION 3 in 2014 such a success, boasting a large dance area, stage, plenty of seating, a full bar and kitchen menu and lots of free, safe parking. See the 2013 INFESTATION video below, created by JayPrescott.com

Complete with roaming photographers, awesome DJs, performers, a midnight costume contest and more, attendees to INFESTATION IV on Friday the 13th in March are sure to at least quinch their thirst for a short while as they'll still be 6 months from Labor Day weekend as tens of thousands of worldly geeks take over.

NOTE: MarksterCon.com (the producer of INFESTATION) decided to move the event back from it's originally (tentative) date of March 7th due to Cardboard*Con and the East Village Super Hero Pub Crawl, both happening on that same date. With all 3 events attracting many of the same fans, MarksterCon.com wanted to show support for the other events and try to make sure that as many freaks and geeks in the Atlanta area could still enjoy those events while having the opportunity to also make it out to INFESTATION (now on Friday the 13th of March).

Stay tuned for more info. on entertainment, etc. but for now, get the date down for INFESTATION 4 – March, Friday the 13th, 2015 at CLUB FAMOUS. For those of you on Facebook, please go "Join" the official FB event page HERE and invite your fellow freaks and geeks.

INFESTATION 3 photo evidence - a great success!

We can't thank enough all of you crazy people that came out and helped make INFESTATION 3 such a great success. That goes for all of the attendees, performers, entertainers, photographers, sponsors and those that came early to help with set-up. Without you all, the event would be just an empty venue space…it's the great energy, time and creativity you all bring to an event like INFESTATION each year that truly make it an epic time for all.
