Yes, Virginia, there really are Anime and Cosplay cons that you can squeeze in before Christmas! This Sunday, December 12, you can go to Las Vegas Supercon - A Celebration of Anime, Manga, Toys, Gaming and Comics. And yes, there’s cosplay and a Maid Café!
And on the other side of the great North American continent, you can attend Toronto Anime Con, which also has a bit of the ol’ cosplay --Hall Cosplay actually. They’ll also have anime trivia and games like Name That Tune and Win, Lose or Draw.
Then, next weekend, you can choose between Bishie Con in St. Louis, MO from Dec 17 – 19 or Carolina Anime Day in Charlotte, NC on Dec 19, 2010. You could conceivably go to both, of course….
Bishie Con is The Midwest's Yaoi and Slash Convention. If you don’t know what that means, you probably aren’t into that scene, but you can educate yourself by visiting their website (http://bishiecon.com/about.htm) and decide.
Carolina Anime Day will feature a dealer’s room costume contest where the dealers are the judges. This friendly competition encourages people to dress up and rewards those that do. The costumes will be judged on a variety of levels with awards and prizes given out to the winners at the end of the day.
Of course, we know that you know that cosplay costumes and accessories make great Christmas gifts for cosplayers. In general we at Moon Costumes ship the same or next business day, and express delivery is available on most items. We even have transit maps for our North Carolina and California warehouses--check out our FAQ.
