RevelCon is a fan-run convention in the form of a gen and slash friendly relaxacon held yearly in Houston. It has a program with panels, an art show, a vidshow, a video room and a dealers' room for fanzines, fanart and other merchandise. It averages around 100 attendees.

The convention was founded by Candace Pulleine who served as convention chair until 2001.[1] According to one fan:
Candace deliberately created REVELcon, held each year in Houston, Texas, to be both gen and slash friendly -- she wanted all fans to feel welcome there, and they were. She ran the convention herself [backing it with her own money], with a team of friends helping her, for 12 years. Then she passed the con on to others. Still, she came each year and was dubbed Mother Goddess of REVELcon! She has been the heart of the convention for 23 years -- and surely she will be, albeit in absentia, for many years to come [2]

Reviews and Websites

In 1991, a fan describes this con:
...You might also want to consider REVELcon. It's a small (200-300 attendees) multi-media adult con held in Houston. Candy Pulleine, who's practically a one woman concomm, is also the founder of Pros fandom in Houston and many local Pros fans attend, so the con has a strong Pros bent. The backbone of the con's zine reading room is the bulk of Candy's Pros collection, along with her other zines. This year s probably will, too. There was also a "Jeopardy" game based on the Professionals and its actors, and a couple of British tv-show panels. [3]

Reviews dating back to the first Revelcon in 1990 can be found here and here.

  • From one fan's convention report:
    For the first time ever, I participated in the costume contest/masquerade. This was one of those deals where you don't just show off your outfit, you do a skit, so ...a local friend of mine and I dressed up like Blake and Avon and did my "Mickey Mouse Club March" B7 filk (it appears in GATEWAY TO TIME #5, plug, plug.) "Blake's the one - no he's not! Blake's the one - no he's not! Forever let us follow him or die - DIE DIE DIE!" At the end I shot her, she fell down, I stepped over her, aimed my little toy gun at the audience and smiled. We didn't win, but it was enormous fun, and people kept telling us afterwards how much they liked it. [5]

RevelCon 2 (1991)

March 15-17 From a con report in Southern Enclave[6], described as "a baby MediaWest with under 200 attendees". Fandoms represented: Star Trek in all its permutations, B7, Beauty & the Beast, War of the Worlds, mixed media, cop shows, Man from UNCLE, Professionals, Phantom of the Opera, Robin Hood, Star Wars, fantasy (dragons and unicorns) and "a very nice gentleman with all Egyptian items." The art show had art from Karen River, Leah Rosenthal, Barbara Fister-Liltz and others. The con had an unofficial mascot that was passed around, a PLAYGIRL spread of a gentleman known as "Horst the Horse."

Some Activities:

  • Friday Night Birthday Party
  • a play by "Cat Bone Theater"
  • Costume Contest
  • a charity auction with proceeds going The AIDS Foundation of Houston
  • Sunday morning buffet and art auction

Some Panels:

  • "Media Sluts--Women with No Standards"
  • "When You Care Enough to Torture the Very Best, or If We Love Them So Much, Why Do We Do What We Do to Our Guys?"
  • "What Did You Think of My Story"--how to give constructive criticism when receiving zine submissions
  • "Dueling Captains"-- the differences between Kirk and Picard

RevelCon 3 (1992)

From a fan's convention report:
...We presented her filk about the ordeals of zine writing - a natural for this crowd! - and my B7 Mickey Mouse Club March, which people complain if we don't do. The zine-writing filk is narrated by a writer, with lines for the editor, so we split it up; Elaine, who has the stronger voice, sang the writer's part, while I put in the editor's lines and sang along on the refrain. We also handed pieces of paper back and forth and mimed rewriting, scribbling suggestions, etc. We started our act, however, with a truly sick and twisted piece which I had simply entitled "The Hurt/Comfort Filk." Much to our surprise, after three (not six, Glenda!) years of performing without ever winning, we placed second! [7]

  • Two Texas fans were burglarized shortly before the convention and lost many items, among them a VCR, a microwave and a Mac Powerbook. A donation box at the orphan zine table enabled the fans to replace the microwave and the VCR and fans donated a typewriter, a clock and a burglar alarm. The fans wrote an expressive thank you letter.
rules for the Revelcon 4 duping room
  • The post-con report addressed ongoing rumor that the convention allowed zine piracy. The convention reports that "after lengthy investigation...we have found no substantiated instances. But, the concern persists...For this reason we are instating the following policies..." The report asks members to report any piracy to the concom. "Public domain items will have a cover sheet identifying the contents and informing copy places that the identified stories may be legally reported. And, while the zine reading room will continue to exist, "more than half of the zines cannot be checked out." The sole exception were the Pros circuit library stories "which will still be available for copying, as they are considered public domain."
  • The zine piracy policy stands in sharp contrast with another Revelcon tradition: the videotape duping room, where fans could reserve time to copy films, TV shows and vids from one VHS videocassette tape to another. The service was so popular that the room was offered 24 hrs a day with fans taking overnight shifts. The "Revelcon Rules For Duping Room" also admonishes attendees: "'When your time is up, you must surrender the machine immediately. This is for your benefit as well, everyone has to surrender the machine as soon as time is up."
  • A thank you to Ann Larimer for designing the convention t-shirt.
  • 52 members pre-registered for Revelcon 5 in 1994.

A story contest was also part of the activities at Revelcon 4. From the first progress report dated January 20, 1993: "The rules are the same as last year: Rule #1: The story must include the following paragraph in an recognizable form. Rule #2: The story must be between 5 and 10 pages, and "Yes, you may double space if you wish."

He did not feel the danger until it was too late. The (weapon) was already at his (her) head, placed there with the force necessary to make itself known. He (she) slowly turned his (her) eyes to see (the villain) as he eased himself forward. The only thought running through his (her) mind was 'I can't die now.' He (she) watched as a cold smile ran across the face of his (her) opponent. Death had never been one of his (her) favorite possibilities and now was no exception. There might be a chance but it was a slim one, if he (she) could Just keep the other talking long enough, maybe Just maybe one of the others would be back to stop his (her) death."
From a fan's convention report:
As Elaine and I walked onto the stage at the costume cabaret, I went right up to the microphone. "By popular demand," I said, "we are not Blake and Avon." This was greeted with applause and laughter. We were both dressed in medieval garb and I had my guitar. We had decided to freshen up our act with some major changes!

The first song we did was an original, serious song about "Yesterday's Enterprise " with words and melody by Elaine. I had worked out the guitar chords and coaxed her to sing it at the cabaret. It was very well-received. Then we did Elaine's "Zine Writer's Lament" - I couldn't act out the usual editorial byplay, but the guitar accompaniment seemed to jazz it up a bit.

There were at least a dozen acts this year. I especially enjoyed the opening group, the "Duras sisters" (a.k.a. the editors of SUPERNOVA et al.), who sang a beautiful song about Edith Keeler and a hilarious filk about Odo, all in gorgeous 3-part harmony. Laurie Keeper and Leah McGrew worked up a hilarious sketch featuring Leah as the Doctor and Laurie as the monster from Shada. Erika Frensley was a stitch as the ferocious She-Wolf of Fandom, with Jamie Ritchey dangling a fanzine like bait to coax her off-stage. A crossover sketch by Media Madness had characters from War of the Worlds, Professionals, and others colliding over a dead body - my favorite moment was when "Lovejoy" calmly appraised and pocketed the deceased's watch. As always, Glenda was a hilarious MC.

Elaine and I were impressed with the competition. So we were surprised and delighted to win third place in the combined costume-and-act category! (Leah & Laurie won first in that one.)

Afterwards, when Elaine and I were heading back to get changed, we were stopped by a total stranger in the hall, who complimented Elaine on her lovely singing voice. Elaine was walking on clouds for the rest of the night! [8]

From a mono-fan's convention report, worried about attending a slash convention where non-K/S fans would be attending. The hidden irony behind this letter is that many of the Revelcon organizers and volunteers were some of the first K/S fans (the Houston Crowd), something that many of the K/S fans of the 1990s had forgotten - or never learned:

I attended Revelcon in Houston with a group of friends in March, and thought my experiences there would be of interest to K/S people, especially in light of what [another fan] wrote last month about Escapade. Revelcon is a media convention with the eaphasis on fanzines and slash. Both last year and this year I was really worried that my exclusive interest in K/S would prevent me from enjoying the convention.

I shouldn't have worried. I found that there is a pervading affection for and knowledge of K/S in almost all the attendees; almost all of them came to their current fandoms through K/S. There was a strong K/S presence in the dealer's room, in the costume/cabaret contest, even some in the art show and video contest. (Last year, a K/S tape won first prize.) This year the K/S presence, in terms of fans who counted it their primary fandom, was considerably stronger than last year. My friends and I hosted a K/S get-acquainted party, and though I feared nobody would coae, quite a few people did. The party was a great success, and led to further contacts with other K/S fans.

Like [others], I have a terrible fear that K/S will die out just as I'm discovering it. I want to help keep it alive. But if Revelcon is any indication, I don't think I need to worry. And just look at the number of truly excellent new writers who have been published in the last year or so, people with excitement, verve, and a fresh perspective.... [9]

RevelCon 5 (1994)

It was held March 11-13, 1994.

From a K/S fan's 1994 convention report:
Here's my annual report on Revelcon, the media con that's held each March in Houston. It's billed as having an emphasis on fanzines, but there's so much slash material evident everywhere that it's always felt like a slash con to me.

I had a great time, with many congenial friends in various fandoms making the trip with me…. The art show was terrible this year, with only really outstanding art being a few K/S pictures that I hung "for display only" by Shelley Butler (her Spock reclining by the pool), by Chris Soto and Marty Siegrist, (I collect K/S art, and I like to make sure that the art show every year has a distinct K/S presence, so I usually bring a few pieces just to share with all the con-goers.), and a few that Shelley sent for the show. Those were gorgeous as always, and excited a lot of comment. I bought an explicit scene of hers that I would blush to describe (but not buy!). It's great! You can't see their faces but who cares.... I can tell who's doing what to whom.... It was the most expensive piece that went to auction, and I really had to fight to get it, dollar by dollar. There was another piece by Shelley of Kirk getting out of the pool that was... words fail me. Unfortunately, my pocketbook did too, or a deliciously wet Kirk would be in my closet hiding with all my other K/S art.

There were lots of used K/S zines at the orphan zine table, at great prices. However, there weren't any new K/S zines at any of the dealer's table, since Bill Hupe, who usually reps a bunch of people, wasn't there this year. Nevertheless, I managed to snap up quite a few zine bargains to add to my collection. The K/S box was just about empty on an hour or so after the dealer's room opened, and there was always a swarm of people there whenever new zines were added by latecomers. (I was in the swarm.)

The panels as always covered a wide range of fandoms. I attended one on writer's block, and as in previous years I discovered that once I started talking my own K/S language, everybody joined in a similar fashion. So many fans came through K/S to get to their current fandoms, it's like a common currency that we can all trade in. Everybody understands the K/S dynamics, while I frankly still can't tell Doyle from Bodie.

The video entries this year were excellent. There was only one Star Trek entry, done to a song that I think is entitled "Only a Clone Now," or something like that. It compared Classic Trek to Next Gen, to next gen's detriment. The video came in tied for first in its category.

The costume/cabaret contest Saturday night always has a very strong K/S presence. There's a group of women from Houston called the Babes who wear outrageous t-shirts (this year it was tastefully done butts, with captain's stripes as accents). They did a dance routine with laminated K/S art as their props. Then, there were the Klingons, who worked security and also did a funny routine spoofing popular commercials. ("It's a torture device and a medical tool!") I got up my courage and sang three K/S filks, one written by our own J.S. Cavalcante, and the others by me. (We're going to be singing at Shore Leave, folks, hopefully sometime before midnight.) At the risk of blowing my own horn (but actually my fandom's), I should report that I did win first place. Best of all, the songs prompted lots of conversations the next day about K/S with folks congratulating me. There were two other filk acts on Saturday; one woman sang a DS9 song, another duo sang three songs, one of which was classic trek. And then there were lots of other amusing acts as well: poetry, skits, costumes, you name it. I always enjoy the costume/cabaret contest.

I always have a good time at Revelcon, but then I don't expect a K/S con. However, I try to participate in everything to make sure that there's a K/S presence that runs through the con. I've always found interesting people to talk to about writing, K/S, or fandom in general. And it's pretty obvious from the continuing current of enthusiasm that our obsession with K/S is still shared with lots of people. [10]

From a fan's convention report:
Being a gofer, I had to serve some official time, so I spent four hours Saturday afternoon in the hospitality suite. This is a job I particularly enjoy, because it's a great way to meet and chat with a lot of different people. A couple of people had asked both Ann McKannan (I call her Elaine) and me whether we were going to sing together at the costume cabaret. I think they missed us last year! Well, we hadn't planned to, but since it was suggested. . . . I used some of my free time in the hospitality suite to scribble out a ST:Voyager filk and copy it over neatly for Elaine. She was tickled and agreed to sing it with me. Soon after my con suite hours were up, it was time to line up for the cabaret. There were quite a few acts, musical and otherwise. The "Babes" did a hilarious act singing "You picked a fine time to leave me Jim Kirk"--with balloons under their matching T-shirts so they all looked pregnant! The Klingons had a cute skit about how Klingons get loans from banks. (Instead of putting up collateral, they have to prove they've made a certain number of kills.) Vivian got to show off her spiffy Zorro costume. Elaine and I appeared as "Ann Squared" and sang the new filk. We were quite unprepared for its boisterous reception--we even got the audience to sing along with the refrain! Cat Boxe Theatre provided entertainment while the judges did their thing. When the prizes were announced, Elaine and I were stunned to hear that we had tied with the Klingon skit for "Best Act!" Vivian also got an Honorable Mention for her costume.' [11]
A Starsky & Hutch fan wrote:
RevelCon 6, a multi media Con happened last weekend here in Houston. As the Con began on St Patrick's Day, most fans wore something green -like headbands sprouting big, green shamrocks. I even found several S&H zines in the Dealer's Room that I have not read: L A VESPERS 1 & 2 and 1013! To spread awareness of S&H fandom, I put out fandom flyers on their flyers table. [12]

RevelCon 7 (1996)

From a fan's convention report:
On Friday afternoon I went to Elaine McKannan's and Jackie Horgan's panel entitled: "What If? Story Writing" which talked about the use of imaginative "what if" scenarios as a basis for coming up with stories. The panelists delved into the issue of creating your own consistent universe, be it original or an alternate version of a fannish one, and engaged in this memorable exchange:
Elaine: "If a writer sets up her own universe and doesn't stick to the rules she's laid out, she won't have a large following."
Jackie: "Or, she might have a large following--all carrying weapons!"

Friday night I stayed over at Elaine's, which was a bit alarming. I slept on the single bed in her guest bedroom, which has recently undergone a startling redecoration. . . . I didn't notice it at night, when everything was dark, but when I woke up in the morning there was a Life Size Avon on the Ceiling Above My Bed! Let me tell you, that is NOT the most pleasant way to wake up in the morning, though Elaine seemed to enjoy my startled squawks!

Elaine McKannan, who also goes by "Ann," and I appeared yet again as "Ann Squared." Glenda cheerfully introduced us as an act that returns "every year, like the viruses they are!" We didn't feel bad 'cause one year we DIDN'T enter, and everybody asked us to come back and do our act again! We performed an updated version of our "Revelcon Hurt/Comfort Filk," having added new verses for popular shows like Due South, Babylon 5, and Star Trek: Voyager. We also made up a verse about REVELcon itself, as we have sometimes done in the past. This year we were inspired by the 10-to-12-year-old girls' soccer team that we saw rather frequently tromping past the convention, gazing wide-eyed at our Klingon security guards. The guards took particular pleasure in posing fiercely, occasionally frightening but usually fascinating their young audience. Hence our verse:

(Tune: Johnny, we hardly knew ye)
At REVELcon we'll have a ball, harroo, harroo
At REVELcon we'll have a ball, harroo, harroo
At REVELcon we'll have a ball,
But watch those children in the hall
Don't let the Klingons eat them ALL--
Candy, we want to thank you
(Candy Pulleine is the organizer who puts REVELcon on every year, bless her heart.) We introduced the song in character as Hans and Franz, the bodybuilders from Saturday Night Live, hefting an (empty) box marked "Fanzines - 10,000 lbs," and teased our audience for being "girly fans"--we were then shooed off the stage by Linda Sparr as "Hauptmann Dietrich." Elaine and I received a "Judges' Choice" award, which tickled us mightily. [13]


RevelCon 8 (1997)

From an ad in Media Monitor #34:

  • REVELcon 8, MARCH 14-16, 1997, Houston, Texas
  • A relaxacon for adult attendees, whose main emphasis is fanzines, fun and food. And ART, TV media and movies . If it is fannish, REVELcon has it . . . regardless of preference.
  • Fanzines galore for those who like zines as well as a laid back atmosphere for those who just came for a relaxing fannish weekend. It might be called a Babel Conference (by Star Trek fans) because of the variety of offered (gen/adult/slash, sf, fantasy, and media)

Vid show information for the early years is sparse. An attendee has compiled a partial playlist here.[28] A copy is included below.

In 1994, Sandy Herrold posted thefollowing review of the Revelcon songtape to the Virgule-L mailing list. Se had submitted several vids as part of the Media Cannibals vidding collective and their vids had won several awards. It is reposted here with permission:
"So, we just got the Revelcon songtape in the mail today (quick brag alert: of the six vids Media Cannibals sent to the con, 3 of them won awards. Charlotte Hill [who is sitting] behind me reminds us all that competitions are bad and wrong, and she's right, but I'm still pleased at proof that people liked our stuff.)

Anyway, we're watching the first Pros song on the tape ("Cover Me," made by Cybel Harper, and not bad) and it has a Pros clip that neither of us remember seeing.

Help! There are four clips in a row in the vid that seem to be all in a row in the ep. Bodie is wearing a dark brown leather jacket, with a bare light bulb in the background, then cuts to Doyle, wearing a sports jacket, then back to Bodie, then Doyle walks to Bodie, puts one hand on a door, one on Bodie's shoulder, swings in the air, and kicks a door in. It is a very cute shot, and as Charlotte says, "Oh, I like it. *Doyle* touches Bodie!"

More Revelcon tape comments: there were *three* Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea; the two we saw at Escapade, and one more (to "Under the Sea" from Little Mermaid) which was quite cute: gen and lightly humorous.

Other cute ones: "The Night Chicago Died," for, of course, The Untouchables (why didn't *I* think of that...), and especially, "I Think I'm a Clone Now;" all Star Trek and TNG, it only had a couple of clips in common with the ST/B7/gen SF version that I think MVD did a few years ago; really a wonderful commentary on the paucity of originality in TNG.

There's an amazing amount of new Quantum Leap in songvid-land these days. Most of these weren't that good...

There was one version each of the two current songs called "Hero" - the Phil Collins/David Crosby one to Wiseguy (pretty darn good, but it starts stronger than it ends) and the Mariah Carey one to Forever Knight.

Tolbran did a Pros version of the Meatloaf song "I Would Do Anything For Love," letting Bodie do the Meatloaf lines, and Doyle the girl's lines: I am waaay tired of the song but she did some very fun things with it.

Our (in this case Alex and my) version of "Something to Talk About" is also on the tape. Watching the vid, Charlotte pointed out the song is Process X set to music.

The last song on the tape is Orinoco Flow, by our own Gayle. I loved the vid (a beautiful song set with all of the images of why we love video science fiction, (in fact, it reminded me of a discussion in the Catch Trap (by Marion Zimmer Bradley, a must read for a slash fan about why people love trapeze acts, that it is all about our desire to fly.) Beautiful vid."
