Crocodile on the Head, Super Mario Mushroom around the Neck & Chainmail Earrings

At SF conventions you can usually wear anything science fiction-ish; from a complete costume to a geeky T-shirt, but after the convention you need to figure out how to make Space Invaders or Super Mario Mushroom chick on your head. We’ll get a little help from modern time Aglaea, Euphrosyne and Thalia :

For the first time at SFeraKon we have the honor to announce a young architect from Zagreb, Tea Pećnik, and her cute and geeky BeeBit collection, 8-bit collection of plastic jewelry and ornaments for home, based on the animated cartoons. On her colorful stall you’ll definitely find something that would fit in your room or around your neck. The BeeBit offers an unusual collection of flowers, magnets, jewelry, brooches and costers. Enjoy her work on Beebit FB page.

From the historic Adriatic city of Zadar comes the talented Irena Stein Medvidović, the author of the unique fantasy and medieval jewelry. Irene combines her necklaces, bracelets, earrings and pendants with materials such as stainless steel, woven and coated wire, leather, mother of pearl, glass and acrylic beads. See her stunning creations on the blog Aimee’s Jewelery.

Pinkeye (Ina Bulaja) has been our regular exhibitor since 2006 and we love everything she sculpts ​​from fimo (polymer clay)! This year Pinkeye is also the sponsor of our Masquerade, so hereby we thank her once again. For the past SFeraKons she created some themed jewelry, such as Roswell earrings & Bemmet brooches. Her funky weird works of art see on the Pinkeye Twisted Jewelry page.

Tribute to “On Stranger Tides”

Tonight our Guest of Honour, Tim Powers, arrives! Although most of us in the Science Fiction Society SFera prefer his novel The Anubis Gates , guys decided to keep their bodies (big and small!) to themselves, so we had to pick another book. Not surprise, the jacks be easily persuaded t’ stage th’ two-minute tribute t’ th’ novel On Stranger Tides . The swashbuckler scenes be filmed at th’ beautiful Jarun Lake one Sundee. If ye reckon the scallywags at th’ Kontakt harbor , they will deny ‘t, but buy them a round o’ grog at th’ bar, anyway, and they`l nay keelhaul ye  for asking.

Arrr, ye land lubbers can be seein’ th’  tribute o’er here:

Kontakt Poster

Fearing that Daniel Ille, the author of Eurocon 2012′s poster, will be to modest in his biography (and yet we need some material for the news), we asked his wife, Jagoda Ille, for a subjective – objective presentation:

Daniel Ille, the author of Eurocon 2012′s poster, knew he wanted to create paper and ink miracles since the time he began thinking about the meaning of life, universe and everything. He has not changed his mind yet. He spent more than ten years in one of the largest advertising agencies, designing campaigns for renowned foreign and domestic companies. The best period in his career was working for the Concert Direction Zagreb, where he managed to combine his passion for classical music and graphic design. To Croatian science fiction fans he is well know for the visual identity of Project SF and SFeraKon posters.

He received many awards for his creativity since his student days at the Faculty of Graphic Arts in Zagreb, his latest being the INdoor kreativac competition in 2011.

Besides classical music his attention is regularly captured by the WWII history, sailing, the sea, large ships, natural wonders, good food, British TV series and any kind of gadget. Naturally, science fiction, as well.

You can see Daniel’s Kontakt Poster here!
