Miss Idaho Shows Off Her Insulin Pump, Encourages Others to Flaunt Theirs on …
At Miss Idaho 2014, as most of you know, I made the decision to wear my pump on stage while competing. That decision took me two long years to make. When I first started competing [in pageants], I was using injections rather than a pump. I didn't want …

Conceived as an umbrella event to house several specialty ‘mini-cons’, the convention coordinators have found an ideal mix of fresh content each year to keep the community coming back, and asking for more.
True to its name “All-Con” is the multimedia event that unites fans from diverse interest communities under one roof, for three exhausting days that are just plain fun. Fans of science fiction, art, costuming/cosplay, literature, collectibles, Asian ball jointed dolls, roller derby, maid culture, anime, short films, Otaku, burlesque, games, celebrity guests, contests, pageants, discussion panels, workshops, and performances will have their whole weekend filled at the single event.
“Comic book and literary conventions cater to an ‘exclusive’ audience. Toy and Collectible shows are for an ‘exclusive’ audience. Pretty much all conventions are ‘exclusive’ to their core audience. All-Con has been developed as an ‘inclusive’ event, bringing all of the communities together and offering the best of what each of them is founded upon,” according to Todd Carlton who manages the scheduling of content for All-Con.
The standard convention staples are all place. All-Con offers an art show (open to the public – no badge or ticket required), gaming, short film screenings, a 50 booth vendor room, artists, and club tables. Then there’s the not so usual mix such as women’s flat track roller derby, Japanese mania culture, and steampunk.
Celebrity media guests in attendance include Richard Hatch (Capt. Apollo from Battlestar Galactica and Tom Zarek from the new Battlestar Galactica); Orli Shoshan (Jedi Master Shaak Ti from Star Wars); Anne Lockhart (Lt. Sheba from Battle Star Galactica); Neil Kaplan (voice actor, best known for the Transformers leader, Optimus Prime); and James O’Barr (artist, and creator of “The Crow”). Anison Unison guests from Japan feature MIQ (anime theme songstress, formerly known as MIO), Kazushi Hinoki (Manga artist), and Keisaku Kimura (author and film maker). Costuming and cosplay guests Ginny McQueen,
Ana Aesthetic, and Rocheriu will be busily presenting content and workshops for their fans. Children’s guest Purr Kayla, known for her audition for Who Wants To Be A Super Hero season 2, will be face painting and entertaining kids.
With over 120 different events to choose from at All-Con, several of the feature events should be highlighted. Friday offers attendees a free concert by MIQ, a convention dance presented by Ultimate Mixes, and a traditional shadow cast performance of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at midnight, by Los Bastardos – a thirteen year established performance troupe from the Dallas area. Saturday is the start of the 24-Hour Endurance 1,000 Anime Song Medley Festival, along with a musical comedy performance by the Damsels of Dorkington, a live concert by URIZEN, the 10pm burlesque performance by Lady Divina and Company, the featured Steampunk Ball starring the Marquis of Vaudeville, and finishing the night with Amber Does Dallas’ shadow cast of Repo! The Genetic Opera at midnight. On Sunday the Circus Epsilon will impress convention goers with their amazing sideshow acts.
For people wanting to be more involved, there are contests, pageants, and competitions all three days. Day one offers a Six-Decade Samurai Anime Karaoke Contest, the Cosplay Competition, and costumed characters from Star Wars clubs competing as Imperial Gladiators. The second day, Saturday, heats up with the Maid Competition, 7th annual Ms. Star Wars pageant, and the All-Con Costume Contest. Sunday the convention theme changes focus with the conventions signature Super Hero Sunday pageant. More than 15 game shows will be hosted throughout the weekend.
Discussion panels and workshops offer insights from making leather masks, to Hollywood creature make-up, to writing Horror literature, to styles of Renaissance combat. New content starts every hour on the hour in each of the two performance halls, projection theater, and five breakout rooms.
The All-Con 2011 theme is “steampunk”, allowing not only that community but also it’s influences to be interwoven throughout the other attending genres adding a bit of (optional) creative spark to attendees and exhibitors alike.
Sponsorships, the vendor room, and hallway exhibit tables are all sold out. All-Con is still accepting publicity prize donations for the volunteer and game show tracks through March 14, 2011.
The cost to get into this amazing convention is forty dollars which covers every event (first-come seating), all three days and parking at the hotel is free. (Some guests charge fees for autographs.) Content starts at 9am each day and runs past 2am, with the exception of Sunday when the event ends at 6pm.
The Crowne Plaza hotel in Addison Texas is the home of the seventh annual All-Con convention. For people who want to stay at the hotel and not miss a minute of the convention, the Crowne Plaza Addison offers a discounted rate for convention attendees who use the booking code: LVN.
Advance registration is available from the All-Con website online, or from Titan Comics in Dallas, Texas. Badges are available to be purchased at the door until weekend capacity is reached.

People often seek millionaire partners to climb the ladder of social status and pamper themselves monetarily. Being paired with a millionaire single is the most wonderful ‘dream come true’ for any young lady or any eligible gentleman. The luxuries and riches they can relish from a millionaire match is to be found in no other matches and that is what urges them to find options for rich men dating or rich women dating, whatever may be the case. With the increasing number of millionaire dating sites on the internet dating a millionaire is now much easier than before.
There is another angle to the increasing popularity of millionaire dating sites. When the riches of someone shoot up to such a level where he or she can be counted among the millionaires in the country, automatically his or her lifestyle becomes ‘upscale’ and he or she becomes alienated from the mainstream social life. In such a situation it is quite difficult to find a match whose lifestyle will be at par with the ‘upscale’ lifestyle of the millionaire. But today this problem is solved to a large extent because through the numerous online millionaire dating sites, millionaire singles can connect to each other. They have the same lifestyle. They belong to the same elite strata of society. Therefore there are no adjustment problems at all.
A millionaire match can make life utterly exciting. There will be no hard times, no chalking out budget and running short of money at the end of every month. Women specially are fascinated by the very thought of having a millionaire husband and are crazy about rich men dating. Even if the wealthy man is quite older to the young lady, they are not much prejudiced about the age difference. In other words anyhow the ultramodern ladies of today’s world wish to upgrade their lifestyle; i.e. from an average one to a high-profile one.
The many online millionaire dating sites have a good number of success stories of uniting millionaire singles to their dream mates. Most of these sites come with very easy signup process, free profile creation facilities and user-friendly interfaces.
Among the members of these sites there are very successful personalities like CEOs, reputed lawyers, doctors, entrepreneurs, beauty pageants, fitness models, investors, pro athletes and so on.
“After earning a lot of money and assuming the millionaire status, I wasn’t happy. One thing was killing me; my loneliness. I needed a partner. One online millionaire dating site filled the vacuum of my life by offering me my soul-mate who belongs to my own status” says a millionaire whose search ended in utmost happiness.
