With its combination of cam girls, marijuana industry experts, and tattoo artists and aficionados, the Cons was already set to be a huge event. Now, the convention that's bringing three of the biggest alt-lifestyle cultures together May 29 through June 1 at the SLS South Beach has added the most famous adult superstar on the planet.
Stormy Daniels, born Stephanie Clifford, who is at the center of one of the most ludicrous sex scandals in American history, will attend the Cam Con portion of the event. She'll be there representing Camster.com, one of the largest cam-girl sites.
"We're very excited at the opportunity to have Stormy be part of the event," cofounder Clinton Cox says, "and we know she's excited to be coming down to Miami and taking part in it as well."
Daniels will participate in the Neon Night Swim Soiree at Hyde Beach May 29 before appearing at the special champagne toast for models and brands and the Industry Day events the following day.
For those who have been hiding their heads in the sand to dull the daily insanity of the news the past few months, Daniels' fame has reached new heights since news broke that she had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006 and then was paid $130,000 to sign a nondisclosure agreement to keep quiet about the interlude. Daniels has not only not kept quiet but also gone into vivid detail about their relationship in interviews with everyone from 60 Minutes to Rolling Stone.
She even sued the president to try to have the nondisclosure agreement nullified and claimed there was a "Lewinsky dress" with Trump's DNA on it. Daniels planned to auction it off at Solid Gold in South Florida, but her lawyers advised against it.

Most recently, Daniels decided to sue Trump again, this time for defamation. The lawsuit states the president's description of a composite sketch of the man Daniels says threatened her in 2011 when previously considered going public as "a total con job" damaged her reputation and cost her more than $75,000.
And yesterday, Trump's new lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said the president repaid the $130,000 to his lawyer Michael Cohen.
The addition of Daniels to the already long roster of models and internet stars attending the Cons is sure to draw even more fans to the event. Born out of Cam Con, the Cons adds Cannabis Con and Inked Con to the mix, making it the first crossover expo of its kind for alternative subcultures.
