GYGO, or Get Your Geek On, is a Halloween party that Bellatrix and Renegades throw together every year. This year, it's going to work a little differently! It will be an online 'convention' that people can drop in and out of as they please!

  • Cosplay/Costume Showcase
  • AMV Viewings
  • Member-hosted panels
  • Among Us and other party games!
  • Movies
  • And more!
  • Virtual GYGO will be on October 31st, 2020! It will kick off at Noon EST, and end at Midnight!
