Do you enjoy cosplay? Do you really get into your character? Concept Galaxy and Zenkaikon Want You!

Concept Galaxy is organizing an interactive production for Zenkaikon 2009, and will be auditioning cosplay talent from around the area to participate.

Audition Details

Date: August 15, 2009

Time: 12:00pm to 6:00pm

Radisson Valley Forge
Bryn Mawr Room
1160 First Avenue
King of Prussia, PA, 19406
Requirements and Criteria

Those who plan to audition should come prepared with a minute-long "in-character" monologue as the character they wish to play. Stephanie Chateau from Concept Galaxy will be hosting the auditions, and will be looking for cosplayers that fit into the categories listed below.

Naughty, Wicked, and V.I.L.E. Villains

Concept Galaxy is looking for talented cosplayers to portray their favorite anime or video game villain. Those who are chosen to participate in the production will act out the part of delinquents plotting to commit a heinous crime at Zenkaikon 2009.

Good Guys, Champions of Justice, and A.C.M.E. Agents

Concept Galaxy is looking for talented cosplayers to portray characters that fight for the ideals of truth and justice. Those who are chosen to participate in the production play the part of heroes attempting to stop the villains from succeeding in their plot.

Zenkaikon Host Announcer

Concept Galaxy is looking for talented cosplayers who enjoy making their own original costume designs. They are seeking a host or hostess to represent Zenkaikon and serve as its "announcer" for events that will happen throughout the weekend. The character should compliment "Zenkai-chan" – the official Zenkaikon mascot who appears on all of the convention's promotional material. The mascot theme for Zenkaikon 2009 is steampunk.

Those with additional questions regarding auditions should e-mail Stephanie Chateau at steph@conceptgalaxy.com.

About Zenkaikon:

Zenkaikon was formed by the merger of the anime and science fiction convention Zentrancon and the anime convention Kosaikon, both in the Philadelphia area. In 2006, they put on their first event, which was a tremendous success. Zenkaikon will return for its fourth installment on November 7 and 8, 2009, moving into the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge. The convention will feature two days of programming with dealers, artists, panels, performances, gaming, and more. The Zenkaikon staff wishes to thank the many attendees who made the 2008 event such a huge success. They hope to see this trend continue in 2009, and are actively anticipating expansion with larger performance and panel areas, dealer space, and video game rooms.

Head of Public Relations, Zenkaikon
