Since our Artist Alley is filled through a lottery, this is a great deal! Winning the contest means that you get to bypass the lottery completely and ensure your spot in the Artist Alley.
- Art must feature Ushicon’s mascot, Ushiko. The official Ushiko model can be found here:
- Feel free to get creative with her clothes and accessories.
- All art must be family friendly. We may be an 18+ only con, but Ushiko prefers a bit of modesty.
- All art must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 11:59pm on March 31st, 2017.
Anime Pub Trivia
Throw back a few cold ones and show off just how great a fan you are. Yeah, you don’t live in your mom’s basement like those nerds on the red team, but you still know more about anime than them, because that’s just how awesome you are. This event will take place on Saturday night, so don’t miss it!
Wataru Yoshizumi, Dawn M. Bennett, and Morgan Berry will be with us all weekend to talk about manga, anime, voice acting, and the anime industry – probably even other stuff as well! And don’t forget to bring your favorite items for them to autograph!
Ushicon’s Arcade is brimming with electronic diversions both new and retro! Tournaments include Virtual On (Saturn), SF5 (PC), Samurai Shodown 2 (Neo Geo), Mario Kart 8 (WiiU) and Super Smash Bros 4 (WiiU)! Peruse a plethora of pixelated passtimes with the choice of 15 console, PC, and classic MAC setups!
Board games of all kinds will be available in our Tabletop Gaming room. Come play games like Boss Monster, where you build a dungeon and try to kill as many heroes as possible. Or you could play classics like Carcassonne, Fluxx, and Small World. Want something quick and easy to learn? Try Cards Against Humanity, Tsuro, or Ascension! A full list of games will be available in our Guidebook app.
Celebrating anime the best way we know how – by watching way too much! Ranging from classics to the best new shows of the year, we’ll have great things to see all weekend long. Stop by to reminisce about old favorites, or check out that new show you’ve been meaning to catch.
