THANK YOU FROM ZENKAIKON 2007
More Than 550 Attendees, Breaking Last Year’s Record

VALLEY FORGE, PA – Zenkaikon would like to thank the 2007 attendees, artists and vendors for making 2007 the biggest Zenkaikon attendance yet. “We hosted 570 con-goers, a more than 100 person attendance surge from last year’s record of 450 people. Zenkaikon is all about the fans. The Zenkaikon staff and I would not be able to have such a successful convention without them,” said Jacqueline Reitnauer, Zenkaikon Con-chair.

New to Zenkaikon this year was the band HSU-NAMI who was one of the acts that rocked the Main Events room. The returning favorite, Eyedolu, engaged the crowd with another first-rate musical performance. Karl “Uncle Yo” Custer kept his promise to, “Make you laugh so hard, your chibi will feel it.” with his comedic observations about otaku, gamers, Trekkies, comic book fan-boys, and the like. The “Cosplay Dating Game” had contestants playing as their favorite anime, video game and manga characters. The laughter continued with The “Whose Line Is It Anyway” inspired “Anime Whose Line” where contestants performed impromptu comedy skits as various anime, video game and manga characters.

In addition to the attendees and performers was the diverse group of vendors and artists at this year’s Zenkaikon. The Dealer’s Room had 22 tables selling everything from Pocky, vintage kimonos, and T-shirts to jewelry, DVDs and video games. Artists’ Alley had 24 tables showcasing many creative talents from hand-made bags, clothes and jewelry to original art, fan art and on the spot commissioned portraits.

Zenkaikon 2008 will take place on Friday, October 17 and Saturday, October 18!!. at the Scanticon Valley Forge Hotel and Conference Center in King of Prussia, PA.
