If you like costumes, nerd culture or cartoons, this is the event for you. Anime is Japanese anime and fans of all ages are converging on the BJCC this weekend. Kami Con is the largest event of it's kind in the state. This is the 8th year for the event. The convention has panels, interactive events and presentations, but a unique part of the event is participating in the ongoing "story".
Cosplay (that's dressing up in custom costumes in favorite anime characters) is one of the big attractions. Seeing the convention goers in their costumes is a big part of the experience. Kids, teens and adults participate. Participants can also sign up for a cosplay competition. Home made costumes only.Late night events are for older anime fans and some have age limits.
Tube celebrities, "creepy pasta" experiences (ask your kids) and video game stars are some of the anime celebrities featured at the event. For a full schedule, click here.
