A new round of Shoujocon 2003 updates. We've got four months left in our planning, and have guests, gaming and plenty of other things for you to learn more about...keep reading!

GUESTS JAMIE MCGONNIGAL AND SILVER ASH

We're happy to welcome returning VA Guest Jamie McGonnigal. Mr. McGonnigal is the voice of Omi in Weiss Kreuz, and proved to be one of our attendees' favorite guests last year.

And, if you're a Visual Kei (Japan's "aesthetic-rock" genre) fan, then Silver Ash will be right up your alley. China's first "Visual Kei" band proves that Japanese pop music has grown beyond the country's borders.

We're proud to welcome Silver Ash to Shoujocon, and to New York!

GAMES: WHACK IS BACK, AND MORE

Seeking your annual dose of anime aggression? Shoujocon's Whack-A-Thon sessions are back, and we're taking down names for this year's victims. If you've already got some people lined up, skip the intro and go directly to our WAT form. http://www.shoujocon.com/events/whackathon.php

For those of you who are less prone to violence, we've got LARP activities, Name That Tune!, and will offer a Video Games room (yes, really!) this year. http://www.shoujocon.com/events/index.html

CLUBHOUSE RESERVATIONS AVAILABLE!

Are you with an online anime/manga group and want to meet other group members coming to the con? Reserve space in our Clubhouse! SJC's Clubhouse gives you a room where you can hold a party, a discussion or whatever type of meeting you want
for yourself and your online friends. Clubhouse guidelines and schedule information are now available. http://www.shoujocon.com/clubhouse/index.html

HOTEL ROOMS: GOING, GOING....

It's early still, but Shoujocon 2003's room block is filling up quickly. Suites are no longer available, but single/double, triple and quadruple rooms and rates still are. Go to our Location page to learn how to reserve rooms, how to get to the hotel, and more. http://www.shoujocon.com/location/index.html

PRE-REGISTRATION STILL LIVES!
Shoujocon 2003 offers a long pre-registration period-- the better to help you save money (for the Dealer Room, of course)! Pre-register now and save $10 off the full at-door rate. If you're coming with friends, you can save an extra $5 per person (5 people or more). http://www.shoujocon.com/registration/index.html

No no no, that's quite alright. I'm non-photogenic 90% of the time. -_-'

Besides, I like the pictures up there. That's more indicative of what I'm like normally, instead of in "con mode". ^_^

Ranma Saotome
04-29-2003, 01:29 AM
Ahh... That and you look so adorable too! :)

Too many cons, not enough money. It's going to get extremely competitive in the years to come unless the fandom increases in proportion to the con growth.

Shouldn't people spam then??? I don't think enough people actually do that. I met some people who like anime and had no clue there were convnetions. o.o;

Well it helps through word of mouth. I mean there are a lot of comic book shops and places that sell anime in Westchester. All ya gotta do is advertise. :)
