SciFi4Me Streams Live From C2E2
Broadcast Will Include Live Wheelchair-Themed Costume Reveal
2019 is the tenth anniversary for both SciFi4Me and C2E2, and as part of the push to cover more live events this year, SciFi4Me will be sending a team to Chicago to broadcast live on Saturday starting with Good Morning Multiverse.
Founder and Editor-in-Chief Jason Hunt says, "This is a great opportunity for us. It's the first time we've been accredited for C2E2, and we're very much looking forward to getting on the floor and building our audience with our exclusive content."
SciFi4Me will be broadcasting live from the event with interviews, panel reports, cosplay features, and more. As part of the coverage, SciFi4Me will broadcast the design reveal planned by Walkin' & Rollin' Costumes, a Kansas City based non-profit organization that builds wheelchair-centric costumes for kids.
Lon Davis, founder of Walkin' & Rollin' Costumes, says the costume they're building is almost finished, and he "can't wait for 10-year-old Jack to see it". Walkin' & Rollin' Costumes will reveal the costume Saturday afternoon as part of a presentation on the Cosplay Central Stage.
"Jack's little brother Elijah is very excited about the costume, too. We'll do a countdown with the whole audience and then pull the sheet off the costume to reveal it to everyone! Then we will put the costume right on Jack's wheelchair right there on stage…"
Hunt is looking forward to the event. "Not only is it a chance for us to dive into a new event with C2E2 and get in front of a new audience, but it's also a great opportunity for us to help a great organization get in front of people and show them what's possible for kids who can't do the typical costume affairs. We're happy to be part of boosting that signal."
Good Morning Multiverse is just one of many shows in the new tenth anniversary lineup for SciFi4Me TV. New content is also posted regularly at SciFi4Me.com and the usual social media channels. New episodes air weekly on SciFi4Me TV (http://www.youtube.com/
