BATON ROUGE — Where can you go to shake hands with celebrities, screen some great films and attend a costume ball gala all in the same weekend?  That would be the Louisiana Science Fiction Film and Costume Festival, coming to Baton Rouge from April 5 through the 7!  Beginning Friday night, the festival will offer a workshop on the costuming and makeup of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, culminating with a screening of the cult classic in full costume!

Saturday will be action packed with several workshops covering topics from costuming and prop making to FX makeup and filmmaking and much, much more.  Then Saturday evening you are invited to the Grand Costume Ball and Gala where professionals and amateurs alike will present their best “alter egos” to the crowd.  Attendees are welcome to participate in costume or just enjoy the view.

Sunday will finish the weekend with even more workshops and film screenings.

Throughout the weekend attendees will have access to celebrity guests including Gil Gerard from the hit TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, along with Theodous Crane and Michael Koske from AMC’s The Walking Dead.  Plus the festival will offer some of the most incredible fan films for you to preview and enjoy.

Tickets are still available for this exciting event.  Festivities begin at 6pm on Friday April 5th at the Embassy Suites on Constitution Avenue in Baton Rouge.  The festival closes at 1 p.m. on Sunday April 7th.  This event brings guests to Baton Rouge from around the country and vendors will be on hand offering everything from t-shirts to costume accessories.
