YuKonstruct at YukomiCon 2017

Geeks, gamers and pop culture fans of all stripes filled the convention centre last weekend for the third YukomiCon. We were on hand with a special edition of our regular Repair Cafe: YuKonstruct’s Cosplay Repair Station

Located right across from the costume contest stage, our booth’s volunteers spent the weekend helping to solve last minute costume catastrophes and spreading the word about the tools and training available at the makerspace.

Between patching storm trooper armour, rewiring Doctor Strange’s magical accessories, sewing Rocket Raccoon’s ears, and many other fixes, the tools at our booth were busy on Friday and Saturday!

It was great to meet so many makers and introduce them to how the makerspace can make their geeky dreams come true. Whether it’s 3D printing miniatures, laser cutting LARP gear, building the ultimate gaming table or designing your own battle bot, YuKonstruct has the tools and training you need!

Thank you to our amazing booth volunteers, Tayley, Julie, Amy, Ksenia, Allison, and Andrew, to Ksenia and Dianna for making the booth decorations, and to Rowan, Chris and Josh for helping with set up and tear down!
