Ayacon this weekend


Article by Delusional posted Thursday 18th August 2011

Ayacon kicks off tomorrow in Warwick, with a ton of cosplay events happening over the weekend. The staple events are there such as the masquerade, panels and performance show, but there's lots of things to keep an eye out for such as charity events, photo shoots and a chance to be in a cosplay music video! Read on to find out more!

Mostly we're looking forward to finding out who's going to take the 2nd UK qualifier spot for Euro Cosplay next to Xaerael who qualified back in May Expo. Good luck to everyone who's taking part!

For those of you who want to show off your acting talent, why not grab Cosplay Fever who will be filming their 2nd cosplay music video at the convention. Get hold of them via the Cosplay Fever Facebook group or find Rob over the weekend to find out how you might be able to take part. If you somehow missed their fabulous first video, check it out on the Cosplay Fever YouTube channel.

Anyone still packing, remember to bring along your old costumes and unused fabric for the Charity Bring & Buy. It's a chance to clear out your cupboards and all proceeds go to the convention charity - The British Heart Foundation.

At the con make sure you pop along to Cosplay HQ for all information, displays and if you need any repair help! Also for all three days, there will be three photography studios setup, courtesy of Pouncy, Akraru and Death May Die. Make sure you drop in and get some photos taken of your costumes!

Hope to see you guys there!
