Everyone who attends cons of any sort needs to read this. Period.
Okay everyone, I’m what the Scots would describe as a “well-kent” face in the con scene, and I’d like everyone to know - follower or not - if you are being harassed, and you need help, and you see me, approach me and I will do all I can. Whether that involves physically interjecting or even just providing you with an out, do not hesitate.
Also both of us at Team Neko are friendly nice people and we love to meet new folks!
Just so folk within the UK Con scene know. We are super friendly and will talk to anyone about just about anything! All you have to do is come over and introduce yourself! We know that is easier said that done…but please know that you CAN do that with us without fear.
We want folk to know (especially people who are new to the scene) that they have at least 2 friendly faces they can approach if they ever feel worried, lonely, uncomfortable, or just plain scared about anything. We will welcome you with open arms and help introduce you to some of the most fantastic people you will ever meet in the con scene. We will listen to your problems and advise you if ask.
We know how intimidating it can be at your first convention. Especially since most groups of people are very well established. We know what an overwhelming feeling of happiness you can get when you finally make a friend.
We’re pretty easily recognized, especially since we don’t cosplay.
Zelly is the girl running around with a video camera in her hand and usually has big bouncy hair, bright colourful make up and accessories and an insane laugh that can be heard for miles.
XC is the big tall guy with long dreadlocks and beard. He will most likely be wearing some sort of vest along with his trademark khaki shorts…that are actually more patches than they are shorts material. He’ll have a big ass camera around his neck and a pint in one hand, large tin of energy drink in the other.
And of course, we will both be wearing bright green Team Neko badges.
Geek ClubNights @ Kitacon 2012 - by GeekClubNights
Nothing get’s Team Neko more fired up for a convention than the thought of some of the great parties that you can attend. And this party was no exception. DJ Lastknight blew us all away with his 8bit Icecream set at Kitacon this year, and we were so glad to be there, capture some of the footage, and have it become a part of this incredible video. Lovingly edited together by the fantastic Iain Bolton.
Hooray! We’ve reached 200 Facebook Likes! That means our Sprite giveaway is now active! The winner will be announced at some point during the week.
In the meantime, head on over to our FB page and give us a wee like. Anyone else who likes the page before the draw will also be entered into the giveaway.
The draw will take place on Thursday
Branching off from its successful convention run, this summer Kitacon Entertainment will be attending UK anime convention, Amecon on August 10th-12th. In support of the premier anime summer convention event in the UK, Kitacon Entertainment will hold a special panel on Sat 11th August which will be hosted by the venerable Scowny (Kitacon’s MC). This panel will detail the plans for two community based video projects. Both projects will rely on input from the community in varied aspects and aim to be highlights of the UK Anime scene over the next two years.
