KuroNekoCon's official tumblr. We're here to answer questions and give you information about our convention and it's related events! We'll share pictures and videos of your KuroNekoCon experience, and help you have the best one that you can! This year our convention will be celebrating its 5th anniversary at the Spokane Convention Center in Downtown Spokane, Washington on July 20th and 21st.
To the Anonymous user who sent several questions, I find it best to answer all of them in one post.
So, to answer your questions, we call ourselves AskOtakuCat because Otaku Cat is and always has been the official mascot of KuroNekoCon. Otaku Cat is the public figure that has always headed our online presence. It’s only appropriate that its presence spreads to Tumblr as well.
As for your costume, we are a fairly family friendly convention, and we see many small children and their parents come through the convention space, so we try to base our rules on what’s fair for everyone. In our rules and guidelines, the minimum requirement “must be equivalent to that of at least a bikini swimsuit at all times during the convention.”
For the manga library, we’ve had manga swapping panels in the past, however these have been run by individuals who have had time and the motivation to put it together, whether staff or fans. As of this time, we are not aware of any plans to run such a panel, but we will certainly take your suggestion into consideration.
Thank you for your questions, and hopefully your feedback can help us make our convention better for everyone.
