Voice Actor Autograph Sessions

There are two different autograph sessions for voice actors – one on Saturday and another on Sunday. The Voice Actor Guest of Honor will sign autographs for anyone who can make it to his sessions at NyanCon.

Note that the Saturday session is ticketed, meaning you can sign up in advance to guarantee an autograph from this actor. The Sunday session is not ticketed, so it’s first to come – first served when the voice actor signs your items on Sunday.

A convention wouldn’t be the same without the talented artists who sell their drawings and other works. You can take a look at some of the amazing works in Artist Alley and maybe even purchase something unique to show your love for your favorite anime characters.

The contest is a chance for people to show off their creativity and their love of anime. You can do anything from being a character from your favorite anime to dressing up as one of your favorite book characters.

All sorts of prizes are available for anyone who participates in the contest. There is even a prize for the best outfit that comes from outside of anime or manga.

Follow these guidelines to make sure you are properly prepared for this wonderful opportunity:

Tip 1

The first thing you will want to do is choose a character or design for your costume. It should be someone from a Japanese anime, manga, or video game.

Make sure to have a good understanding of the character before you begin your outfit. You may want to gather some reference pictures so that you can get an idea of what you should look like while in costume.

Tip 2

We would recommend picking a character from an anime that has a lot of episodes. Getting the design for your outfit down may take some time, especially if you are making every single aspect of the outfit. You don’t want to run out of time before Anime Detour is over.

Tip 3

Once you have decided on a character, make sure you draw up the design for your costume. If this isn’t something you are good at, get some help from a friend who can.

Your design should be able to give an idea of what the outfit will look like. If you’re not sure how to do this part, then get someone who knows how or get some help on Tumblr or DeviantArt.

Tip 4

Once your design is complete and you have gathered all of the materials, you’ll be ready to start construction. When putting together your outfit, keep in mind that it will need to fit correctly throughout the day at Anime Detour.

You’ll want to try your outfit on beforehand so you can make sure everything fits and is comfortable.

Tip 5

During the contest, there are usually two rounds. The first round involves walking around the stage and letting everyone see your outfit up close. If you are confident in your costume, then this should be fine.

The second round is a skit that can involve dancing or acting out a scene from the show that the character is from. This will help show off your talent as well as your outfit.

In Conclusion

There you have it – this is everything you need to know regarding the NyanCon Anime convention. Read this guide and prepare to attend the convention this year!
