AggieCon 47

TheDirector /2017-03-23

AggieCon is the annual convention put on by members of Cepheid Variable. Held not too far from A&M Campus, we have hosted fascinating guests ranging from Aaron Dismuke, to Jeffery Cranor to George R.R. Martin himself (No con-goers were inexplicably killed off during the extent of his visit)! The con is open to everyone and is a weekend chance to meet other people in your fandom, attend panels such as “How to survive the Zombie Apocalypse” and “What you need to know to be a Hunter.” Members of the club put on the Rocky Horror Picture show unlike any you’ve seen before. There is a dealers room where you can shop from the plethora of fantastic craftsmen and women there as well as an art room showcasing the talent of many artists. All in all, it’s just a great atmosphere and time to go and have fun with friends and meet new people like yourself!

All-Con 13

Imagine a 4-day festival where a person could sample and participate in the finest content that many different communities and conventions have to offer. All-Con fills the entire venue with exhibits, workshops, discussions, game shows, performances, and competitions. The selection of activities changes every hour from the start of the day until 2:00 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights and until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Ushicon 12

TheDirector /2017-02-17

Ushicon is an 18+ only Japanese animation convention taking place in Round Rock, TX, just on the north edge of Austin. We’re celebrating our 12th year in operation and our 7th as an 18+ only convention. In many respects, we’re like most anime conventions in that we have video theaters, anime industry guests, an arcade, a tabletop gaming room, a dealer’s room, an artist alley, panels, workshops, a maid cafe, and game shows. What really sets us apart though is the age limitation. The atmosphere at Ushicon is much more laid back than you would see at most all-ages conventions, and feels a lot more like a community of anime fans, thanks to our smaller size. By the end of the weekend, you’ll probably have made a few new friends and may even recognize most of the people you see, even if you don’t know their names yet.
