But then we grow up and put such childish things behind us.

  • Find cosplay costumers at Anime Blues, snap a picture, and mark off their corresponding tiles on your bingo sheet.
  • Get a row of five (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) and you may be a lucky winner!
  • Bring your completed sheet (and photographic evidence) to our booth at Anime Blues.
  • The first three lucky winners get an exclusive digital download of our upcoming short film Avarice (Available Fall 2012).

Hola! So, we’re a bit late on this, but as we sat around a campfire the other night making s’mores, Katie had a brilliant idea: a MidSouthCon 30 costume contest. We loved all the creativity and attention to detail everyone put into their costumes, and we want to show them all off.

  1. First, follow their link to Facebook.
  2. Then, click the ‘Like’ button to ‘like’ their photo.
  3. Easy peasy!
