2008 Theme Info
« on: August 03, 2007, 12:43:08 PM »

Hiya, everyone! I'm the Artist Pool Manager & Theme Coordinator for FanimeCon. I thought I would post a few things about this year's theme that you might find interesting, or things to look forward to regarding our characters.

The official theme for the year is "Feudal Japan." As always, we will be making sure we retain our cool/fun image you all know so well, while promoting the sophistication and elegance of the theme. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do... it's been a blast developing the artwork and characters for this year.

Aout the characters. Some of you may know the names of our characters already, but I describe their features anyway for those who don't. This year, our characters have been put in the universe of fuedal Japan and they have been given occupations/class status to reflect it. The characters will be consistantly be portrayed in these roles in most cases.

Amber: This is the quiet girl with long black hair. This year, she's a skilled female ninja (daughter of the leader of a the leading clan).

Becky: This is the perky light-brown haired girl with pig tails. She's the fairly non-specific class, the daughter of a middle class family.

Candy: Candy is the girl with wavey, firey orange-red hair. This year she's featured as a princess.

Damien: He's the casual cool brown-haired guy. He's the son of a merchant who is helping run the family business with his father. He and Amber have a little connection... ;]

Elliot: This is the confident blonde guy with glasses. He plays the role of a swordsman for this year's theme.


The artwork currently on the website are the works of Wen-M and Myself (colors) and were only meant for promotional purposes. Hopefully we will have the finished artwork for the website up soon.

Haha, pirates are out of luck, they're on Ninja territory now.

This sounds like a good idea, I hope it's effects are put into good use.

It looks like the artwork on the main site is Gem2niki's?

But, overall, I think it looks alot neater than last years.  Plus, more color is always good.

Ooooh!! not a bad idea!!!
How about attending members without specific cosplay encouraged to wear feudal japanese clothing/ninja clothing or pop japanese clothing?
