Kami-Con X DESIGN CONTEST! – $200 Cash Prize!

*NOTE: Please read all information before submitting!

Greetings again, artist-chans and artist-kuns, guess what time it is?

BOOM! That’s right, the Kami-Con X Design Contest!!

HOW IT WORKS
This year, Shoyu is waging war on Kami-Con with his army of space aliens. Shio & Kosho are now the commanders of the resistance, and they need outfits to match!

Winning designs will be used for official Shio and Kosho artwork for Kami-Con X, and also be made into FULL-FLEDGED COSPLAYS to be worn by our congirls during the skits and at the con!

Oh, and of course you can win those sweet, sweet dolla bills~ $$$$$

SOME GUIDELINES
– Shio & Kosho are commanders leading a resistance in space. Think of some Sci-Fi resistance leader or military-style outfits that keep our anime roots. Space battles are the name of the game, baby!
– Shio’s color scheme is typically red/pink, white, and yellow.
– Kosho’s color scheme is typically purple, black, and blue.
– While the design does not need to prominently display a star or moon, Shio needs to have some sort of star adornment in her hair, and Kosho must have some sort of crescent moon adornment in her hair.
– Outfit designs must be family friendly to PG-13. Nothing too revealing!

ALSO
– We are awarding two $100 prizes, one for each congirl. You can submit just Shio, just Kosho, or both together!
– You may submit as many designs as you like.
– You can submit anything from a scribbled sketch to a fully colored design. Everything will be judged!

Guest Cancellation: Doug Walker, Robert Walker, and Tamara Chambers of Channel Awesome

Bad news, congoers. :(

Doug Walker, Robert Walker, and Tamara Chambers of Channel Awesome all got suddenly ill this week and won’t be able to make it to Kami-Con. They’ll be fine, but we won’t be having them this weekend. :(

BUT! We still have Malcolm Ray (from The Nostalgia Critic) and Leo Thompson (That SciFi Guy), so be sure to come see them and give them a warm welcome!

We’ll try for the full Channel Awesome team again in the future, so don’t fret, congoers!

These things happen, and we’re still going to provide an amazing time! We can’t wait to see you all this weekend! <3

Season 9 Tentative Schedule!

Hey-hey, look what we’ve got! A TENTATIVE SCHEDULE for you guys! (Click to expand)

Friday: http://kamicon.net/S9Friday.pdf
Saturday: http://kamicon.net/S9Saturday.pdf
Sunday: http://kamicon.net/S9Sunday.pdf

Since there’s NO way you can read these itty bitty images, we’ve uploaded the tentative schedule to the links above..
These links will be the live version of the schedule, so anytime you check it will be the newest version! (Though you may need to refresh.)

In case the all-caps aren’t enough, we want to stress this schedule is TENTATIVE! That means that things are subject to change! This is NOT the final schedule you will see at the con!
However, it is very very close, and a pretty accurate schedule that should meet your planning needs! ;)

If anything looks weird, doesn’t make sense, etc, DON’T WORRY! It’ll be fixed or explained much better by con time. :)

Happy planning!

Announcement

New Convention Badge-Check Policy!

Hello everyone! We’ve had some questions, so we wanted to update everyone before the actual convention so that there are no surprises.

We have expanded the area that requires badge checking at the convention.

Previously, you were able to walk around the main convention areas without a badge, and were only restricted from entering the panel rooms, vendor rooms, concert rooms, etc.

The new policy expands the badge check to the main convention areas as well, meaning that anything beyond the entrances and the registration areas are inaccessible without a badge. (This includes the top and bottom floors.)

We understand this might cause some problems for people who previously had not purchased tickets; if that is the case, you have a few options!

1) Pre-Registration has been extended, so you have until Friday, Jan. 20th @ 11:59pm CST to save money on your ticket prices!

http://kamicon9.eventbrite.com/

2) You can also volunteer! Volunteering is a great way to make friends, see the con, and save money at the same time!

3) Walk-In tickets DO NOT SELL OUT! So if you or someone you know happens to show up and can’t get in, tickets will always be available throughout days of the convention! :)

We hope this clears a few things up! Thanks everyone, and we look forward to seeing you all soon! <3
