We wanted to send a couple lucky Sparklers to cover FaerieCon this year. Tons of you sent us awesome submissions, and one of the Sparklers we chose was Madison Ruppel! Here is her first-hand account of her weekend amongst the faeries!
Last weekend, I had the opportunity to head over to Seattle and experience the magical event that is FaerieCon. A quick Google search will tell you that it’s the “World's Largest Faerie Convention featuring art, literature, crafts, and more”, but that description isn’t really adequate. FaerieCon is magical, full of lovely ideas, people, and costumes. Going in, I was a little nervous because I simply had no idea what to expect. What does someone even DO at a "Faerie Convention?" As I soon found out, quite a lot. Every day was jam-packed with workshops, speakers, vendors, and music. Here are some of my favorite memories.
