Press Release: Star Trek Las Vegas World Costume Record Attempt Update
Last year attendees at the Creation Entertainment Official STAR TREK Convention garnered the world’s record by having 543 costumed Trekkers show up for the attempt to win the Guinness Book of World Records of most people in Star Trek costumes in one place at one time. We have just received our notification from Guinness of this accomplishment.
The count-down to the required number to beat (507) was tense and nerve-racking but the outcome was one to celebrate as one by one more costumed fans poured into the reception room to cheers and applause. It was, truly, a highlight of the convention and just tons of fun!
Our record, however, was short lived as it was apparently beaten at Dragoncon in Atlanta one month later (with 571) so our hat is off to them but now the battle is on as we’re going for the gold once again in
2011. This time we are setting our phasers on serious as we’re doing the count mid-day Saturday (instead of early morning).
It is all taking place at 2pm Saturday afternoon in our secondary theatre so get your costumes and make-up ready and be part of history as Las Vegas recaptures the crown! THE DATES OF THE OFFICIAL STAR TREK CONVENTION IN LAS VEGAS are AUGUST 11-14, 2011: click on through to get ALL the details about this spectacular gathering that stars WILLIAM SHATNER & LEONARD NIMOY! http://www.creationent.com/cal/stlv.htm
