Registration is currently online! http://kintoki-con.com/register

Artist Alley
Artist Alley is now full! Thank you to all who applied.

Masquerade
We are currently in need of assistance in running masquerade, if you have any experience in this please email us at nikkiecole @ kintoki-con . com

Convention Maids
In lieu of a maid cafe this year, we will be doing something a little bit different.
Our maids will be wandering the convention with program books and other information guides as well as assisting with water service and doing onstage performances.

Photographers
We will once again be offering special discounted badges to approved photographers. This is fir not only their benefit but also for the safety of cosplayers in general. We ask that anyone claiming to be a photographer but not wearing this badge be reported to staff immediately so that we can either approve them or remove them from the event.

Cosplays
We are promoting the education of parents as well as passing on our knowledge and hobbies to the younger generation, as such we would like to make a simple request from you. Please keep all cosplays PG and keep to shows that are PG13 or lower. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Panels and workshops
Panels and workshops will again be divided into two tracks: professional and fan.
There will also be an additional parent track for informing and educating parents on your hobbies. The GoGo Hikaru twins will be doing panels on eco-friendly cosplay as well as fitness and health. The twins will also be hosting a morning run (dubbed Runnaloids) for cosplayers. Gene Luen Yang will be hosting a panel on comics and two workshops. Mary and Richard as well as Jennie Kwan, will have Q&A panels going. There will be miscellaneous art panels by our artist guests.

Video Room
Our video room is sponsored by NIS America, so most of what we show will be via their courtesy. We will also be showing some Korean Animated Movies not available in the US.

Main Events
Some of our main event entertainment will include cultural dances performed by local group Animotion and some local high schools. We will also have performances by Mari Watanabe, Angel Hearts, and Kurenai. Autograph sessions will also be located in main events. Some Panels or workshops may be hosted in the Main events, depending on the panel itself.

Game Room
Our Game Room will once again be run by the T.B.A.G.R. group who has long run SacAnime, Fanime, and many other convention game rooms. We look forward to seeing what they have in store for us!

Shawnanigan's Arcade
This year we will have one small room dedicated to arcade games thanks to Shawnanigan's Garage. These games will have their tokens active, this is due to the group's request as a tradeoff for them bringing in the arcade systems for us.

Lounge &Children's Area
We are bringing back our lounge, an area for people to chill out and relax amidst the rush. Perfect for weary parents or groups who need a place to sit and talk.
This area will currently be shared with a small Children's Area, an activity area for parents to interact with their younger children. We have fun and educational events planned and the area is under the charge of cosplayer CarlaDawn and her friends.

K-Pop Choreography Sessions
In addition to Aimee Lee Lucas being added to the guest list, she and her company, Music Video Party (MVP), will be hosting workshop sessions to teach attendees how to dance to some of K-Pop's most popular music videos.
