Na meji nevidnega

On Saturday 28. new Slovenian science fiction convention was held in Ljubljana for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised over the participation, as there was, most of the time, present at least 100 people.

Convention hall.

Different science fiction, board game, roleplaying related societies presented their activities. There were a sections dedicated to playing Magic the Gathering, Warhammer and painting Warhammer figures. Of course, event like this needs cosplaying performance. Award for the best costume was won by the Witch King (LotR – Lord of the Nazgul), followed by Morgana (LoL champion) costume with moving wings. As befits sci-fi event we even saw Princess Leila slave costume.

During the convention, there were lectures with various topics. Artistic society presented the process of making their Witch King costume. From ideas and design to their actual implementation. There was a discussion about problems of translating personal names in books and maintaining their relevance to the content.
