The First and Best

Cardboard*Con is the first and only science fiction / fantasy convention dedicated to the art of cardboard costuming. Encompassing more than 3 Atlanta downtown hotels, Cardboard*Con will has become a tradition among all fun-loving nerds. The SECRET of Cardboard*Con is that there really isn't a plan - you have to make it fun all by yourself, using your imagination and your manners.

Back to Basics

Forget about spandex and latex, at Cardboard*Con we've seen that the future of costuming is double-cored with reinforced edges. Our convention is famous for attracting some of the most talented cardboard costumers from around the world. Put down those pinking shears and pick up the duct tape...

No Long Lines!

Cardboard*Con doesn't suffer from the congestion which plagues other volunteer-based mega sci-fi conventions. We save you, the convention-goer, time and money by using the latest crowd-sourcing techniques to maximize your enjoyment. Also: membership is FREE.

The 6th Annual Cardboard*Con will be on March 7, 2015!!

Volunteer Induction for 2015

At some point in spring/summer of 2014 we will hold an event to attract volunteers for our 2015 event, so please stay tuned on our Facebook page and our Twitter feed!

5th Annual Celebration of 2014

Badj prices were cut in HALF and the fans responded enthusiastically! Even though this deep price cut reduced the quantity and quality of guests it seemed that this year will forever be remembered as the year that nobody fell into the dumpster at the after-after-after party. The profile of the event grew in 2014 and organizers are wondering if the hotels can contain the con in 2015.

2013 MASSIVE SUCCESS

In a first for a major Atlanta science fiction convention, Cardboard*Con stopped selling badjs and refuse to sell them at the door. If you did not already have a badj you still could have come, but people are lazy readers! LOL
