PopCult Anime Con would like to thank our favorite idol group Susume→Paradise for organizing this event for a second year and just rolling with it when we ultimately had to switch convention formats. This event is truly “a story achieved together.”
You’ve seen them everywhere, on everything PopCult Anime Con since our inaugural year 2016… but who are they?
It’s time to meet the faces of PCAC, our band of beachcombers and your “virtual guests” for 2020! Check out our new Mascot Bios page!
The warmer weather’s creeping in and it makes me feel like DANCING!
PopCult Anime Con is thrilled to announce that DJ LinkRatchet will be coming back again as resident deejay for our RETRO SUMMER BLOCK PARTY 2020. Excellent!
With LinkRatchet in charge, this block party just got totally upgraded to a DANCE PARTY! He’ll be spinning SIX uniquely themed dances over three nights, including of course the Pre-Reg Only bonus Friday night. Whether your jam is all about today’s hits, 90s nostalgia, 80s new wave, 60s Motown or 20s swing, get ready to be just like Kevin Bacon at PopCult Anime Con!
☆.。.:*・°☆ Happy New Year! ☆.。.:*・°☆
As 2019 ends, so does our Early Bird registration sale. But a new year brings new opportunities! One-Day passes for PopCult Anime Con 2020 are now available for pre-registration – yaaaay! Did you know pre-registered day passes are also good for our Day Zero Friday night programming? Way to get amped for your banging (half) weekend!
We are still looking for talented New England-based guests with unique backgrounds to feature at PopCult Anime 2020 as “Local Legend” guest panelists and performers! Skills should be relevant to popular culture and/or the fandom convention scene, including but not limited to: Cosplay, Roleplay, Media, Music. For the sake of diversity, we want to particularly encourage POC and male talents to sign up, but of course everyone is welcome! Guest resumes can be sent to email@example.com. Local Legend guests should expect to provide a number hours of panels/programming in exchange for reg/hotel and other perks to be outlined in a formal contract.
Now that it’s 2020, you can expect a whole bunch of information to start dropping soon! From Exhibitors to Game Shows, our staff is already busy busy building you another year – our fifth year! – of PopCult Anime Con. Here’s to a great year for everyone!!! May your fandoms be drama-free, your game scores always high and your cosplay ever-flawless!
PopCult Anime Con is looking for Local Legends, talented New England-based guests with unique backgrounds who love to share their skills with others! Skill set should be relevant to popular culture and/or the fandom convention scene, including but not limited to: Cosplay, Roleplay, Media, Music. Local Legend Guests would be expected to provide a number hours of panels/programming in exchange for comped reg/hotel and other guest perks to be outlined in a contract.
PopCult Anime Con believes in diversity and visibility in today’s pop culture and entertainment world. We want to take a moment to encourage our POC brothers and sisters to come forward and send in their Local Legend resumes! Everyone who signs up is special and will get a thorough look over, but I think we can all agree there’s not enough POC (or men in general) at our cons. Let’s see if we can shake things up a bit!
Interested in being a Local Legend at PopCult Anime Con 2020? Send a resume of your talents, skills and appearances to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Told you we weren’t done announcing Legends! Rounding out our lineup of talented guests and performers this year are:
Land in Chaos LARP and Charles Dunbar from StudyofAnime.com! Learn more about them on our Local Legends page!
An early access version of our Panels Schedule is now available under Programming>Panels! Meticulously planning Badgers and Snakes might actually be able to start cobbling their own con schedules together if they combine the new Panels info with that on the Artist’s Cafe, Game Shows and Wizard Summer Camp pages! We imagine the hearty Lions will be winging it, while the Eagles wait patiently for the full schedule to arrive. Don’t forget to be sorted into your Camp Houses here! See you in two weeks, Campers!
A little over two weeks to PopCult Anime Con and we just may have been holding out on you guys! Freshly added to our Local Legends lineup:
Mistress of Lore & Leviathan’s Grimoire, PCAC’s first ever featured panelists, are returning with their great range of programming in cosplay and character acting!
Come to a MASSIVE HITBOX event to find some very familiar PCAC guests under a new moniker wink wonk.
And Misa on Wheels returns! Find her profile on our new PopCult Anime Icons page here.
