Glamourcon continues to be the best convention for fans to meet Playboy Playmates and glamour models. Playmates from every decade of Playboy's publication were signing autographs and taking pictures with fans. Additionally, eight Playboy Playmates of the Year made an appearance at this Glamourcon: Patti McGuire, Karen Velez, Kathy Shower, India Allen, Julie Cialini, Brande Roderick, Kara Monaco, and Ida Ljungqvist.
Runway fashion shows featuring models in swimwear, club wear, and corsets were a new addition to Glamourcon. Also, the Playboy Morning Show was interviewing Playboy Playmates and fans throughout Saturday.
Corsets were popular with the models at Glamourcon.
Pricing will always be a contentious issue at Glamourcon and other similar shows. There were several models (including recent Playmates) who were charging $20 for pictures with fans. This practice should be reserved for Playmates and models who are historically significant.
The schedule for 2010 will be announced shortly. See you soon!
