What is AmeCon?
AmeCon is the UK's largest residential convention dedicated to the celebration of Japanese Animation and Comics, and the community that these media bring together. We try to be a little bit country, and a little bit rock'n'roll - well, maybe a lot rock'n'roll, but that's beside the point.
The weekend-long timetable is chock-full of attendee-run events providing new insights, or alternative viewpoints, on a variety of related subjects. Either way, they are a great way to meet likeminded people who love the same things you do.
Our infamous nightly parties provide ample opportunity to kick back and get your groove on with friends, old and new. Folks coming to AmeCon might only see each other once or twice a year, so we do everything we can to make it a weekend to remember!
Above all else, AmeCon is an event that is run by fans, for fans, and would be nothing without the fans. Every penny AmeCon receives goes into making the event that bit more special for the hundreds of attendees who return year on year. If you want to know more about AmeCon, have a poke about the site or the forum, or drop us an email!
EuroCosplay Qualifier Event
Amecon is proud to announce that we will be selecting one of England’s best cosplayers to represent our country in this years EuroCosplay Championships.
To take part you just need to sign up to the cosplay competition and enter the Catwalk event with your competition costume. Check out the rules and guidelines for more information.
EuroCosplay is a celebration of cosplay across Europe, an amazing opportunity to meet, make friends with and compete with some of the best cosplayers from all over the world. In 2011 cosplayers from 22 different countries where selected at local events to travel to London for the October MCM Expo and EuroCosplay Championship and represent their countries. In 2012 you could too!
EuroCosplay is a solo competition that focuses on your costume instead of your performance so it’s a real chance for anyone who makes amazing costumes to inspire and amaze your fellow cosplayers. We also want you to show off what is great about cosplay in your country however.
If you qualify, we transport you and your costume to London for the weekend where you have full access to all the London MCM Expo events and exclusive EuroCosplay parties as a guest. On the Saturday you get to meet a panel of top international cosplayers (past judges include Japan’s Goldy, America’s Jia Jem and Brazils Pandy) who will discuss your costume with you before you go onto perform on the MCM Expo’s Theater Stage. We live stream the stage show over the internet too so nobody misses out.
You can find up to date information on qualifying events and cosplayers on the EuroCosplay Facebook page so why not come and say hi!
