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.

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.

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.

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

I finally had a chance to actually sit down and go over the Table Agreement and came across something in it that is not very clear....

Quote8. Securing art or any construction directly to the SJCCF equipment such as tables, chairs, and walls is prohibited. If the AAL sees materials taped to the provided table coverings Artist will be asked to remove them. Artist will only receive one (1) verbal warning. Subsequent violations will result in the expulsion of Artist from Event Space without refund.

"Securing art or any construction directly to the SJCCF equipment such as tables"
Does this line mean that the displays that use clamps to attach to the table are no longer allowed?  Is there a reason as to why?

We are artists, staffs, attendees, and sponsors of Kintoki-Con, an event that focuses on bringing the convention's experience back to the culture; and to the fans.
In addition to celebrating Japanese culture and animation, we will embrace other cultures, such as Korean and Chinese influences.

Please join us at our next convention in Sacramento, California on June 18-19, 2011!.

So what is Kintoki-Con?
Kintoki-con is a con created not just around Japanese media (though it is a great part of it) but also Korean and Chinese. Afterall, Japan would not have existed without China right? (Hetalia reference). Korea's recent shining days are also a welcoming show of just how fast it can catch up to the game.

Why Kintoki-Con?
The name Kintoki was a spoof from Golden Hour (or Golden Time), which is when most TV stations host the hottest shows. For Japan it's when the otakus get home from work.
In China it's when kids go online in search of their favorite anime after school. In the US...its the news hour when parents get home and cartoon hour for the kids (or at least it used to be cartoon
Kaze-Hime of Deviantart was the one who came up with the name, after much debating over other name options.

Registration Staff~

Hi this is Nicole S.  I loaned you guys my megaphone so your staff wouldn't lose their voices.  However I never got a call on the last day and neither did my friend Frank.  We both left our numbers on a card with the megaphone and I'd like to have it back.  It was $30 and I need it for other conventions.

Please respond ASAP.


I recently got into Cosplay photography due to friends always cosplaying (go figure huh? XD).  I'm looking to improve on my photography skills, so I'd like to put up an offer to locals and semi-locals between Solano County and Sacramento.  I will also be at FAnime, Anime Expo, and SacAnime so this will apply to both cons.

The Offer:
FREE - One (1) Hour Photoshoot Sessions for individuals or groups (up to five (5) people).

Photo Samples:

1.) You will need to provide your flash drive so I can upload the pics to it directly from a friends laptop; otherwise it may take a while to get the pics to you.
2.) You will need to find my Artist Alley table in order to check in with me.  If things stay the same I should be at table T20.  If anything changes, look for my Pikachu Print.

I was just at the BOE today to get my permit, they're starting to become real sticklers about people applying for temporary permits more than two months in advance.  Is it really neccessary to have the permit number so soon?  We could always just e-mail the number later. 

Just a thought for next year but maybe it'd be easier for everyone if you had them pre-reg and then have it so that permit numbers are due by a later date, if they don't turn it in by that date, they lose their spot (unless prior arrangements are made).
Not everyone lives close to a BOE office, so for those that want tables; needing a permit more than two months beforehand makes things more difficult.
Would you be interested in sharing a space?  I'll pay for my share, I'm fairly clean around my space (I try to keep my stuff in my suitcase if it's not being used), and I'll even bring my dispaly for both of us to use (plus I'll shower you with luffs and free stuffs if you want anything <3)

Anyone interested? ^^;

Here's my DA:

Many thanks in advance <3

When will it be up?  ???
They had an unofficial one at AX...but will Fanime be having an Official one?  *hopes that they will*
Even if they don't though, if I get a AA table, hopefully people will come by and battle with me  :D
