Space and tools will also be available for anyone wanting to build at the event.

Feel free to stop by and build at your leisure!

In addition, there will be an informative panel being held 

at 1pm on Sunday, June 23 about sticker application

and how to work with tricky surfaces.

Anyone who participates in the open build competition at Kelowna ComiCon 2024 will be entered into a draw to win a Yuri Godbuster Plamax Model (retail value $139.99)!*

*Children 12 and under require parental permission to enter.

Heroes, Myths and Legends

Every culture has their own legends, heroes, villains, and fables. From the Epic of Gilgamesh, to the Thousand Paper Cranes, to the story of Little Red Riding Hood, there are an infinite number of stories to be told! This year's Open Build will bring these stories to life. We want you to pick your favourite story or character and create a display that showcases this idea. You are welcome to be as figurative or literal as you would like! 

(A special thanks to Matt C. for the idea for the competition!)
