It’s that time of year again and Shobou Con is right around the corner!  This year will be just as amazing as ever with a Cosplay Contest, games, vendors, panelists, crafts, manga swap and so much more. The festivities take place on March 26 from 10am-4pm at the Central Library, 298 Cedar Rd.  We are currently accepting applications for panelists, vendors and volunteers.  If you have any questions, please contact Jes Chatham at jchatham@infopeake.org or 410-7069.

  1. hi ^^ I was wondering if you have artist alley applications open and same with cosplay contests ones? I would really like to enter in one of my drawings and I would love to be in the cosplay contest like I was last year ^W^ ((I was Armin in the cosplay contest last year)) and if we need to turn in applications by a certain time then I would like to have a link to both the artist alley and the cosplay contest ((again if there is applications for those)) please and thank you ^^

    1. Sorry for the delay in answering. The Artist Alley Application forms are available at your local branch. They are due back by March 22, 2016, with your framed artwork. The challenge this year is reimagine any non-anime character in your favorite anime universe. Hope this helps! Please let me know if you need anything else.

    1. Due to a lack of participation, we have decided not to have an AMV contest this year. If you would like to see it brought back, I would encourage you to fill out the survey that will be provided at Shobou Con.

    1. Hello Rosapeach!

      All accepted vendors should have received an email notification of acceptance AND some reminders for what to do to set up for Shobou Con. Only accepted vendors will be allowed the day of the event. If you or your sidekick think we’ve made a mistake or if you are interested in applying for Shobou Con 2017, please email me at kwalton@infopeake.org.

  2. im cosplaying asthe 1971 kamen rider am i allowd to have my ipad playing the kamen rider theme song LETS GO RIDER KICK wial cosplaying for the convention

    and for artist ally are lego creations allowed to be enterd

    1. It would be awesome if you used your iPad to play the theme song during the Cosplay Contest, and it would be fine if you played music outside the library. I don’t think it would be a good idea to play it in the main part of the library as we’ll be sharing the space with regular library customers.

      I’m very excited about your lego creation, but I’m going to let our Artist Alley Overseer address the guidelines.

      Have a great day!

    1. This year we are just accepting paper artwork, but are considering accepting other forms of art for future cons. If this is something you would like to see happen, please make sure to fill out your survey at the con and make this suggestion in the comments.

  5. I applied for my panel with my stage name, Luna Lee Swiizka. My real name is MacKenzie Ankrom. Do I need an id to verify my name before I can host my panel?

    1. Hello!
      We haven’t required id in the past for panelists; you don’t need to produce one to host your panel. You will need to check in when you arrive and you’ll have a designated CPL staff member as your hostess to make sure you have everything you need during your panel.
      Does that help?
