With Emerald City Comicon rapidly approaching, Jetspace and Queer Geek! Seattle are teaming up once again to bring you a night of geeky revelry, nerdy dancing, and all out queer fantasy with the latest edition in their famous Pink Party series, Pink Party Comicon. Hot on the heels of last fall’s Pink Party Prime, Pink Party Comicon continues the tradition of providing an event where queer geeks can gather and let their hair down. Whether you’re sporting your favorite Marvel t-shirt, your elaborate, hand-made cosplay outfit, or anything in between, this party is gonna be the place to be.
Last year’s Pink Party, held during PAX Prime weekend, was a smash success, as more than 650 people packed Neighbours Nightclub to dance, drink, and game the night away. Pink Party Comicon is gonna be even bigger.
Neighbours Nightclub on Capitol Hill will throw open the doors of their Fortress of Fabulous for Pink Party Comicon on Friday, March 27. Tunes will be provided by DJ Krot (Insert Coin, Pink Party Prime), and DJ Jackson Human-Hybrid (Party Tribe Trolls, GlamourPuss), and Cass Bolton will be shaking his booty on the go-go stage.
The biggest news though (literally) is the party’s special celebrity guest, and VIP Lounge host, Mr. Kristian Nairn, aka Hodor from Game of Thrones. Kristian is taking a day off from his Rave of Thrones tour to come up to Seattle and hit up the best queer geek party of the season. VIP guests will get the chance to Hodor it up with Hodor himself in the exclusive VIP Lounge, but everybody will get to see him on stage when he serves as the final judge for the Official Pink Party $1,000 Cosplay Contest.
If you show up in costume, you could have a chance to win your share of more than $1,000 in cash and prizes from generous sponsors like Northwest Press, Southern Comfort, and Wizards of the Coast.
Tickets are $18 for General Admission and $35 for VIP, and you don’t even have to have ECCC passes to attend! Get your tickets, and all the juicy details, at pinkpartyprime.com
