So I've been following this account that just popped up about a month ago on Instagram called LucyCon. It seems to be a a group of people putting together an LA based Lucy fan convention. I haven't been able to determine much about this as the webpage and IG account don't give me any details about it.

So I don't want to knock an effort but we've been there and done this fantastically from 1996-2001. And on top of that conventions need those who are connected to the fandom, and participated in the world that it's about. Well about 75% of those people who did the panel discussions at the original Lucy conventions are dead or a heck of a lot older now. I want to know if and who they've talked to about participating in this.

So what is this going to be? More of a comic con type thing were people walk around in costume and lots of merchandise dealers? And what new things is it going to do that isn't being done now or over the years at the Jamestown Lucy festivals? Sad to say but the ship has sailed on this type of event. I can get a 50's themed convention with a bit of Lucy but this seems to be all Lucy.

Here is the link to the webpage on it.

Huh. Curious to find out more too.

LOL, when I first read the thread title, I thought this would be describing an LA con artist passing herself off as Lucy or something.

Maybe a costume idea?

Well intentioned, perhaps, but that website makes it look like a play just to get vintage furniture.

Seems odd that is the first thing they are looking for. Maybe they are creating 50s land.

"Funny" or should I say suspect that the contact links don't really work and take you nowhere worth spit.  While this doesn't sound totally "legit", I don't think it'd be a bad idea ultimately... Although so many of the "players" are now gone, aren't there enough fans with interest in the subject/Lady to make one more go of it, especially in LA where so many studios, locations, etc. where she worked, lived and played could be featured? I think so... and I hope I'm not in the minority!  I'd love to see this come to fruition! :HALKING:

 

I'd just love to know who's been back of all this!! :blink:

New post on IG today that new details were coming very soon. The IG is very vague too, so I've got nothing to go on. Just popped up this month. Only about 100 followers. Not to toot my own horn but I'm closing in on 4000.

Please keep us posted, woman! 

 

Fascinating; and wondering if it's Tom W., and company.  Perhaps, someone who is friendly with him could contact, and ask.

It's not Tom. It seems to be a group of people in their 20s from what I can get off of one picture.

I want to believe this is being done with good intentions and isn't some sort of scam. Hope to learn more soon.
