IKKi CON VI 2011-2012

Mensaje  Densha Otaku el Lun 15 Oct - 13:07




IKKiCON is a three-day anime convention held annually in Austin, Texas. The convention is held during winter, originally in February and now during New Year's Eve weekend. It is Austin's largest anime convention with an attendance of 5,971 at the most recent IKKiCON and is hosted by a 200-member volunteer staff. A variety of guests have attended IKKiCON, including brothers Greg Ayres and Christopher Ayres, who have attended every IKKiCON to date.
History

IKKiCON was created in 2007 in Austin, Texas originally taking the date of Ushicon. IKKiCON I was held at the Wyndham Garden Inn with an expected attendance of 1,200. The actual attendance was an estimated 2,500 individuals. IKKiCON I started a tradition of raising money for charity, as well. $1,900 was raised for Austin Children's Hospital through a live auction.

Due to this unexpected attendance, IKKiCON had to change venues in its second year. IKKiCON II moved to the fourth largest hotel in Austin, the Doubletree. Attendance was estimated at 3,500. This sophomore year showed growth in programming, as well. IKKiCON II, sponsored by FUNimation Entertainment, partnered with Make-A-Wish Foundation in order to grant a wish for an young girl through our charity live auction.

For IKKiCON III, the convention was required to move to the largest hotel in Austin, the Hilton Austin, in order to accommodate the expected attendance. Attendance was estimated at 4,000 total attendees. IKKiCON was sponsored by FUNimation and Austin Browncoats for the charity live auction which raised $4,450 for American Red Cross.

IKKiCON IV was held at the Hilton Austin for the second year in a row. Total attendance was 4,203. $2,000 was raised for Kids Need to Read, a literacy charity co-founded by Nathan Fillion, of Firefly and Castle fame. FUNimation and Austin Browncoats sponsored the event for the fourth year in a row.

IKKiCON V marked the final year the convention would be held at the Hilton Austin. IKKiCON announced during closing ceremonies, as well as via an advertorial in their program, that they would be moving to a new venue. That venue has yet to be announced. Total attendance was 5,971. IKKiCON V supported Austin charity, Heart House Austin, an after-school program for underprivileged children. Heart House has committed to using a portion of the donation to help one of their students attend IKKiCON VI. The donation total was $3075. The charity live auction was sponsored by FUNimation and Austin Browncoats.

IKKiCON LLC is the parent company of Austin, Texas anime festival Anime Overload.

IKKiCON LLC is sponsored by Austin based non-profit corporation, Austin Browncoats.
Programming

IKKiCON's primary focus is Japanese animation and culture. Events include guest and fan panels, workshops, late night dances, karaoke, live music concerts, an art show, a charity auction, "Anime Idol" contest, a cosplay contest, and an anime music video contest and 24-hour video gaming and video watching.

IKKiCON IV and V introduced new programming, including a Maid Cafe and J-POP Room.

IKKiCON focuses on live music due to Austin's claim as the "Live Music Capital of the World". Musical guests have included Peelander-Z, Greg Ayres, Eyeshine, One-Eyed Doll and The Browncoats.
Cosplay

Many of the attendees cosplay while attending the convention. IKKiCON V debuted a Photo Suite in which attendees could show up in their costumes and participate in a professional photo shoot. Donations were collected for that year's supported charity, Heart House Austin. Photos were available online.
Charity


IKKiCON has raised thousands of dollars for charity since its inception in 2007. Benefactors include Austin Children's Hospital, Make-A-Wish Foundation, American Red Cross, Kids Need to Read and Heart House Austin. Austin-based non-profit, Austin Browncoats, has sponsored and helped organized IKKiCON's charity live auctions since 2009. FUNimation Entertainment sponsors the auctions by donating the majority of the auctioned items. Most auctioned items are signed anime-related memorabilia, including DVDs, posters and apparel.
Mascot

The main mascot for IKKiCON is a girl named Riot. She changes her outfit every year in accordance with the theme.
Theme

IKKiCON IV embraced Steampunk as its theme, while IKKiCON V's theme was Music.

IKKiCON has announced that IKKiCON VI's theme will be superheroes.
