Miss Fisher Con 2017
May 4 - 7, 2017
We welcomed more than 60 Miss Fisher fans to our inaugural convention, along with three VIP guests: Travis McMahon and Anthony Sharpe (Bert and Cec in the tv show) and Gabriela Hernandez of Besame Cosmetics.
A fan by the name of Floydsroom lent us her talent and artistic vision to create this amazing logo - her involvement has helped shape the way Miss Fisher Con has grown. We now reach out to fandom artists to create a new con logo every year.
Putting on a convention takes substantial up-front costs, and since the board of the Adventuresses' Club was, at that time, just a group of friends who really wanted to meet more Miss Fisher fans, we had to reach out for assistance. We held a contest where we asked fans to submit art that we would print on t-shirts to be sold to help raise the funds to book the hotel.
Six amazing fan artists submitted designs, and when we opened up the vote to the fandom, a fan named Cowalyn's fantastic Vegas-themed artwork won. We sold more than 75 t-shirts to fans all over the world and were able to book the hotel.
