Dance Dance Kumoricon

Posted June 16, 2009

Kumoricon is excited to announce its next mini-event, Dance Dance Kumoricon!

Dance Dance Kumoricon is a celebration of gaming culture. Join us for an evening of video game and video game-inspired music spun by a live DJ from CMD Productions.

Cosplay as one of your favorite game characters to compete in our costume contest. Social gaming in the lounge is encouraged—bring a Magic deck, Pokémon deck, or a DS. There will be snacks provided, and also concessions.

The dance will feature new tracks from The Slants’s upcoming album Slants! Slants! Revolution.

The dance event will be held the evening of Saturday, July 18 at Norse Hall. For information on pre-registration, age policies, and dress code, visit our Dance Dance Kumoricon invitation page.


Looking for cosplay groups and artists for weekends in June and August [updated]

Posted June 3, 2009

Post update: Updated dates to reflect cancellation of July 4-5 weekend.

Kumoricon will be running stage activities and an exhibitor table at the Dragon Moon Festival the weekends of June 6-7 and August 1-2.

We have a half-hour cosplay skit planned Sunday afternoon but are looking for more skits. If you are a cosplay skit group please contact us as we’d love to have you.

Kumoricon also has the opportunity to bring artist tables to the festival. If you would like to host a table during the weekend and sell your work, please contact us. Another possibility, if you are unable to staff a table for the weekend, is for Kumoricon to sell prints of your work and pass on the proceeds. Talk to us for arrangements.

The Dragon Moon Festival is a three-weekend Asian cultural festival this summer in Portland’s Old Town Chinatown. Check out our forum thread for complete event details, and our meet-up thread if you’d like to come in cosplay and meet with other attendees.
