Convention Maids
In lieu of a maid cafe this year, we will be doing something a little bit different.
Our maids will be wandering the convention with program books and other information guides as well as assisting with water service and doing onstage performances.

Photographers
We will once again be offering special discounted badges to approved photographers. This is fir not only their benefit but also for the safety of cosplayers in general. We ask that anyone claiming to be a photographer but not wearing this badge be reported to staff immediately so that we can either approve them or remove them from the event.

Cosplays
We are promoting the education if parents as well as passing on our knowledge and hobbies to the younger generation, as such we would like to make a simple request from you. Please keep all displays PG and keep to shows that are PG13 or lower. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Panels and workshops
Panels and workshops will again be divided into two tracks: professional and fan.
There will also be an additional parent track for informing and educating parents on your hobbies.  Cosplayers Maridah and Pikminlink will be doing a special panel specifically on Cosplay and the GoGo Hikaru twins will be doing panels on eco-friendly cosplay as well as fitness and health.  The twins will also be hosting a morning run (dubbed Runnaloids) for cosplayers.  Gene Luen Yang will be hosting a panel on comics and two workshops.

Video Room
Our video room is sponsored by NIS America, so most of what we show will be via their courtesy.  We will also be showing some Korean Animated Movies not available in the US.


Game Room
Our Game Room will once again be run by the T.B.A.G.R. group who has long run SacAnime, Fanime, and many other convention game rooms.  We look forward to seeing what they have in store for us!

Shawnanigan's Arcade
This year we will have one small room dedicated to arcade games thanks to Shawnanigan's Garage.  These games will have their tokens active, this is due to the group's request as a tradeoff for them bringing in the arcade systems for us.

Lounge &Children's Room
We are bringing back our lounge, an area for people to chill out and relax amidst the rush.  Perfect for weary parents or groups who need a place to sit and talk. 
This area will currently be shared with a small Children's Room, an activity area for parents to interact with their younger children.  We have fun and educational events planned and the area is under the charge of cosplayer CarlaDawn and her friends.

K-Pop MVP (Choreography Workshops)
In addition to Aimee Lee Lucas being added to the guest list, she and her company, Music Video Party (MVP), will be hosting workshop sessions to teach attendees how to dance to some of K-Pop's most popular music videos.

Cultural Asia Fashion Show
Asia is not only abundant in culture and food, but also tradition. This fashion show will display traditional costumes from different Asian cultures such as, China, South Korea, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Hmong etc. We hope to educate viewers as to which costume belongs to which country as well as their origins.

Semi-Formal Asian Dance
We believe that dances are meant to be eventful, fun and safe with a touch of class.
Therefore rather than following suite with other conventions and host a rave, we will host a nice semi-classy dance with quality music of all styles.
We would like to encourage everyone to dress up in traditional Asian attire for this event.

TCG/CCG
This year all card game tournaments will take place on Fan Friday.  They will be hosted by Sacramento-based Metropolis Comix.

I'm planning on attending!

I'll be there Friday as Hard Disc version Maj. Kusanagi (Ghost in the Shell) during the day, and Rose Lalonde during the evening/for the Can Town Ball (and my Homestuck fan dinner [/shameless plug]). On Sunday, I'll probably pull out another Mary Elizabeth McGlynn character and cosplay Julia from Cowboy Bebop.

Hope to see some of you there! :]
