What people said about the Australian Discworld Convention 2017:
"I enjoyed geeking out with everybody about their cosplays and hearing about past exploits. I could feel future war stories being created. I enjoyed showing off my own cosplay, which I have wanted to share with people who get it without having to be told, and could just love it as much as I did. I had a blast. Have never had a convention experience like it."
"The creative detail was amazing. The sign artwork, the goodies bags. Everyone was of good cheer, super helpful and always patient. The auction was fabulous."
"It's the first convention I've ever been to, and I loved it. Mostly because of the people, and also the range of interesting activites, and those two things are the reason I've already bought a supporting ticket to the next one."
"I enjoyed everything! The variety of activities, the smooth running, the chance to catch up with like minded people, the ability to make Discworld puns and be UNDERSTOOD!"
"There were so many good things! I loved the goodie bags we received upon registration - they looked amazing and were very useful [and Fruchocs for the win!]; the hand-made mini-plates we received at the Gala dinner were beautiful - well done that crafty genius; the workshops were good and I regret not getting along to all of them; most of all though, the organisers who were thoroughly on top of things the whole time and made the event run so smoothly. These are a few of my favourite things."
"My favourite thing was being immersed in all things Discworld. My first con was everything I hoped for and more. So much to do and participate in. I am already looking forward to attending the workshops/gatherings I didn't get to. The Dark Morris and Feet of Clay are on my agenda to name a couple. Missed the chance to learn to play Thud. Did enjoy a good singsong to start Sundays at Songs of Praise. So much fun, thank you, thank you, thank you."
