This is your Events Team for Senshi-Con 2013. They have worked hard to bring you the best events for Senshi-Con yet! Don’t miss this years Con September 28th…
I would like to share a video that shows you some of the members of Senshi-Con’s Events Team. The Events Team works really hard to schedule panels, plan events, create and host games, and so much more! You will surely see the Events Team in action during Senshi-Con 2013. But for now, enjoy the video!
Where will it be, and when?
Oh my gosh, I apologize profusely for the delay! I don’t even know how long ago you asked this.
In case you haven’t heard (I mean “you” as in ANYBODY), Senshi-Con 2013 is September 28th and September 29th at the Egan Center in downtown Anchorage. This is the first time Senshi-Con will be in a real convention center! There will be SO much more space, and the Egan Center is really close to a beautiful park that is perfect for getting photos of your cosplay!
This is Katie Tiedrich’s website, Awkward Zombie. On the left-hand side of every page, a small box labeled “appearances” lets her fans know when she will be visiting various conventions. When I saw that she published Senshi-Con’s name on the list, I just got so excited. I couldn’t miss getting a screenshot of it.
This is Senshi-Con 2013’s official flyer! I love the colors, I love our special guests, I love the location, and of course I love Aurora Dordan’s mascot. This is just going to be a fantastic year for Senshi-Con: I can feel it!
Devan Simpson, the 3rd-place winner in Senshi-Con 2013’s Mascot Competition, drew fanart of Aurora Dordan’s winning entry! How cool and amazing is that? I just couldn’t NOT share this! Thanks Devan for the cute fanart!
Last, but not least, I am pleased to present our 3rd-place winner for Senshi-Con 2013’s Mascot Competition. This is the work of Devan Simpson.
Devan’s design does a good job of capturing some Alaskan elements. Her character is a wolf, which is a common animal in Alaska. Her character is wearing furry clothing, which hints at the need to use animal furs in order to stay warm during the winters. I also like the nod Devan made to Senshi-Con’s name: Senshi means warrior, and Devan’s character seems to be a warrior!
Though Devan and Aurora (our first-place winner) produced very different pieces, I find it interesting to compare the two. Aurora and Devan both used the Alaska Flag in their designs. They also gave their characters very short dresses, despite the cold Alaskan weather! To make up for the dress length, both of them lined their outfits with fur.
Now it is time to give some love to our other top choices out of the entrants for Senshi-Con 2013’s Mascot Competition.
This is the artwork of Taylor Hall. This is pretty cute, I have to say! Taylor Hall won 2nd place. Stella, Taylor’s character, looks like a really cute combination of a “magical girl” and an Alaskan Native. Great concept!
This is horribly delayed, and I apologize for that.
This, of course, is the artwork of the talented Aurora Dordan. She won first place in Senshi-Con 2013’s Mascot Competition, which means her art will be/is in your program books, on the tickets, on Senshi-Con’s website, and more. I am personally a fan of Aurora’s work, and I never miss an opportunity to congratulate her.
just tips and news is all i can think of.
What kind of tips are you thinking of?
You could post costume tips and tricks and/or Anchorage FAQ's and info. for out-of-town travelers?
Well, I am not a cosplayer myself so I have none! If you know of really good cosplayers who are willing to write tips and tricks, I can post said tips on Senshi-Con’s Tumblr (I have no problem crediting them if such a thing were to happen). As for information about Anchorage, that would be easy enough. Thanks for the suggestions!
