News for Shuto Con 2011:
Shuto Con announces dates for their first convention...in 2011
Shuto Con is Lansing's Premiere Anime Convention, coming March 25th-26th, 2011. This convention will be a two day event held in Lansing, MI that focuses on Artists and the art of Interactive Cosplaying!
Starting on Friday morning our convention will run from 9AM until 12AM Saturday night (Sunday morning) non-stop. On Saturday night we will conclude the festivities with a techno blasting, glowstick waving dance! We plan on having lots of wonderful panels, over 30 unique artists, several dealers to get your latest anime swag from, anime and video game viewing rooms open during the entire convention, a table top gaming room, special guests, and much more!
Shuto Con also hopes to give you a truly unique experience by participating in our "Interactive Cosplay" experience. We highly encourage ALL our attendees to dress up as their favorite characters and act like them during the convention. A mock battle arena will be staged where you can "fight" it out with other cosplayers, or even take "bets" on who will win! Special points will be given out to those that participate the most, and at Closing Ceremonies on Saturday night we will announce the Shuto Con "King and Queen of Cosplayers"! If you do not wish to participate, but would still like to capture those fond memories, we ask that your bring your cameras and/or video recorders and witness a viral hit in the making! For more information and rules on this event please visit the Interactive Cosplay page.
Pre-registration is only $20 for the entire two-day weekend! This will grant you access to the Artist and Dealer's Alley, all the panel rooms, and the Main Events hall. The first 50 people to pre-register will also get a coupon to claim a special Shuto Con collectable item at the convention!
