Attention Artists!

Zenkaikon Artist Alley Registration will open at 10:00pm on Tuesday, July 16, 2013.

Artist Alley is a great place for both amateur and professional artists to showcase their work and original merchandise. Artist Alley merchandise traditionally includes fan art prints, manga, models, paintings, and novelty crafts, but is limited only by your imagination.

I wish Zenkaikon would get it's own forum section here on cosplay.com, it's big enough now it needs it. :T !! It's hard to plan cosplay meet up events at.

That aside, excited for the con! I love the new location!

So many updates! Lots of guests and other announcements. But first, one of the most urgent: Zenkaikon will be hosting a special screening of the anime film "Wolf Children" on Thursday November 7th at 7:30pm at the Landmark Ritz at the Bourse in Philadelphia and we need your help!

This special screening is powered by Tugg in association with FUNimation Entertainment, but will only happen if all tickets are reserved by the deadline of October 31st! That's where YOU come in ~_^ Don't miss your chance to see this Japan Academy Prize-winning anime film on the big screen, and help us spread the word! Hope to see you there!

Synopsis of the film: Wolf Children is a staggeringly beautiful animated feature film from director Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars). This epic cinematic achievement follows Hana, a woman who falls in love with a Wolf Man and gives birth to two half human, half wolf children. After the tragic death of her beloved, Hana seeks refuge in rural town where she attempts to build a life for herself and her children.

All proceeds Zenkaikon receives from this screening (5% of ticket cost) will be donated to Child's Play Charity (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/).

Link to reserve tickets: https://www.tugg.com/go/tiwkqe
More info about Wolf Children: http://wolfchildrenmovie.com/

And after Wolf Children, don't forget to join us and the Philadelphia Science Fiction Society for the rest of the weekend at The Anime Track at Philcon 2013 ^_^
