I know its geography about as well as that of Mars. Specifically, I'm going to LeakyCon — a Harry Potter convention established in that I now work for, unpaid, as social media coordinator. For the most part, Potter cons work the way all conferences do. There are panels and presentations, regular guests, and a marketplace of vendors selling magical merch.
How Harry Potter conventions took over my life
So You Want to Attend a Harry Potter Convention: Choosing Your Convention | The Slug Life
The Sun regrets the error. Silver Spring attorney Jerusha Burnett will be channeling Luna Lovegood this weekend, right down to her Butterbeer cork necklace and Dirigible plum earrings. And, naturally, a wand. If you're a Harry Potter fan, no further explanation is necessary; you already know about Luna, the determinedly non-conformist and perhaps slightly daft witch who proves an invaluable ally to Harry and his Hogwarts school friends in the battle against Lord Voldemort. And maybe you, too, will be one of the 3, or so Potterites, many in full costume, making their way to the Inner Harbor this weekend for the first PotterVerse convention, three days of total immersion in the universe created by J. Rowling's books about a young wizard struggling to master the magic surrounding him.
Dubbed 'LeakyCon,' the event is scheduled for Oct. The event will feature performances, programs and panels with, of course, a Harry Potter theme. Vendors will also be selling merchandise and collectibles at the convention. Stay up-to-date with metro Denver news with Patch!
This is just a thought, but what if years are numbered differently in the wizarding world. If that were the case then most of the dating inconsistencies, aside from the fact that dates don't often match up with the days they occured on, would go away. Interesting idea but i dissagree. True about Months and days, but not necessarily years, which, I may be wrong, but it seems like there are more inconsistencies in the years than the actual days and months. I realize that this theory is just as unlikely as the next, just a different point of view on the subject.
