We have been simply astounded by the support we have received for MISTI-Con. Our original goal was to have enough to get the con up and running. Thanks to you, we not only can safely launch the convention, but we can increase the quantity and quality of our decorations, greatly expand our promotional efforts during the coming year, and be sure that our 24 hour common room is well stocked.
As we are heading into the last 2 weeks of our Kickstarter, we are thrilled to announce two NEW goals. With your help, if we can reach $10,000, our Masquerade ball will include a delectable spread of desserts and fresh fruit. Our original budget originally supports various chips, dip, and salsa to snack on as you dance the night away. So this would be a fantastic upgrade.
Additionally, everything over $10,000 will be put directly into our academic speaker budget. Which will allow us to bring some fantastic names in Harry Potter and fandom academia to our convention!
To help you help us reach these goals, we are excited to announce our Incendio event! These are additional reductions in award levels. These include the custom character voices now at $10, the Wizard Rock bundle down to $25, and a huge 50% reduction in the custom drink award! (now $50!). Additionally, all VIP and Chief Mugwump passes now include the custom drink award! (This of course is for previous contributors of the VIP and Mugwump passes as well). Finally, EVERY Kickstarter supporter who pledges $5 or over will be receiving a special Ray The Dark Lord Bartender Dark Mark sticker.
Thank you so much to everyone who has helped us make it this far. Please tell your friends about MISTI-Con and our Kickstarter as well. Every pledge we receive not only makes MISTI-Con that much more amazing, but gives you something cool in return.
Sincerely, Clay, Jonathon and Cassie and the entire MISTI-Con team.
P.S. Remember, all convention registrations obtained through Kickstarter include the MISTI-Con T-shirt, as well as a very special diecut metal pin. This pin will only be available to passes obtained through Kickstarter, volunteers who work a certain # of hours and our staff. They will not be sold ever. We should have a photo very soon as the prototype is in the design phase, we think it will blow you away!
