Cosplay Dating Game Now Accepting Applications!


We’re happy to announce that applications for the Cosplay Dating Game are now open! The Cosplay Dating Game is similar to the traditional ‘Dating Game’ of yesteryear TV. Three bachelors or bachelorettes sit on one side of a curtain. On the other side is the ‘prize,’ an elusive bachelor or bachelorette (the prize) for one of the 3 contestants to ‘win.’ The twist is that participants are in costume and are the character! The prize will ask several questions, which contestants must answer in character. Then “the prize” will choose which date they want. Unlike the real ‘Dating Game,’ this event is purely for the amusement and entertainment of the participants and audience. No real dating is involved.

Read more about this announcement on our website: http://www.zenkaikon.com/blog/2013/0...-applications/

Or go right to the information and application page: http://www.zenkaikon.com/cosplay/datinggame.php

At our last 3 day event in 2011, we had 3,168 paid attendees (3,422 warm bodies). I would expect we will be seeing at least that many this year. A schedule will be released closer to the time of the convention. There's over a month and a half and plenty of activities are still being fit in!

Zenkaikon welcomes Uncle Yo!

We are thrilled to welcome back geek-specific comedian Uncle Yo for his sixth Zenkaikon!

Fewer man-children have their feet so firmly planted in the anime convention scene as Karl “Uncle Yo” Custer. The Pennsylvania-born New Yorker has performed for anime clubs, conventions and Japanese cultural events all over the country. Yo’s current roster of projects includes the weekly released podcast, “We are the Geek,” the sole voice cast for Google Play’s video game “Top Dog: Lucky’s Charm,” and his newest album, “Ecto-Kitt-Lorean” released on iTunes and Amazon this past February. Zenkaikon is Yo’s first con, his home con, and his private playground. Whether hosting a panel, a masquerade, or subjecting innocent civilians to his rants, he celebrates that, just as foretold, the Geek have inherited the Earth.
