YuleCon

I don't see a thread for Yulecon, so here's one!

For those that don't know, Yulecon is a quite small Christmas themed anime/gaming convention held in Fort Worth, Texas first held in 2008.

Yulecon is a pretty awesome con, yet it's pretty small~ last year was my first, and it's pretty cool~ :3 but sadly this year's Yulecon is delayed till November 2013..(as heard from James, the founder of Yulecon, back at AnimeFest.) I also asked him when the site will be back up, he said around a few weeks to a month and a half, and it's already considered a month since there's no 31st in September(duh xD), we might get an update about Yulecon soon.

EDIT 1: Also, if you think about it, Yulecon is often held the first weekend before Thanksgiving. And in 2013, Thanksgiving is on November 28, minus a few days, and the weekend is November 22-24. So it's possible Yulecon will return next year on November 22-24, 2013(This is just a guess, it isn't official.)

If my statements become wrong, I'm sorry. I'm just guessing. xD

EDIT 2: For those that don't know, in the website Texas Metroplex Cosplay Coalition, there are somewhat backup plans since this year's Yulecon is cancelled. Here is the link: TMCC about Yulecon~
I don't know much about it but it should have more info soon.

EDIT 3: I should have looked at the website a few days ago since October 1st, the Yulecon website has updated with more information regarding for this year and next year. So what James at A-Fest told me was true, Yulecon will be back in 2013. Oh well.. :/

Anyone else a fan of Yulecon, have past Yulecon stories, plan to go next year, etc.? :3

I plan on going when it starts back up. Yule Con has had a couple of rough years, but it was nice hang out con between AFest and All-Con.

All-Con is an everything con. Most people there are Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, other scifi/fantasy. Last year there was a good bit of steampunk too. There are anime cosplayers, but they're the minority. Lots of programming & parties.

All-Con is personally my favorite convention. It's the best run con I've ever been to. It's a rarity for an event to be cancelled or run late, and I am never, ever bored. Like B.O.M. said it's an "everything" con, but it doesn't have a very heavy focus on anime. There is some content, like the yearly 24-hour anime song festival, the cosplay contest, tea party, etc; but it makes up a fairly small amount of the programming. There are a LOT of costuming panels, they're usually pretty unique and very helpful. Also, Nerf Wars.

There may be fewer costuming panels this next year. A lot of the costuming panels in the past were run by members of the DFW Costumers Guild. The guild now puts its own convention on (this past July was our first).

I don't know much about it but it should have more info soon.
Our forums are actually private, so nonmembers will be unable to view that thread. In previous years our holiday party has been held in the private homes of members, and has been a members + personal guests only get-together. So far there have been no discussion of opening it to the public, though anyone who is interested may join our forums. It's a great way to meet local cosplayers!
