This weekend you will find Abunai! in the Dealer Room at Atsusacon (www.atsusacon.be). Feel free to drop by for a quick chat, a free poster or some delicious candy. This is also the last convention where we’ll be hosting our candy jar contest: are you the one with the closest guess on how much candy is in the jar at our stand this weekend? Then you will win all weekend VIP access to “Abunai! 2015 – Sugar, spice and everything nice.” – But be quick, or someone will have eaten it all already:
So as most of you know we closed the sign-ups for the competitions on the 30th of June. However there has been a small change in plans as starting [Insert date and time] we will open the signups again for Clara Cow Cosplay Cup preliminaries. This because we sadly received a very low amount of sign-ups. It is also quite understandable as it is a new competition and most people were probably still considering competing after AnimeCon or are not entirely sure what the competition is about. So for those who would still like to sign-up you can now do so until July 31st.
For those who are still not quite sure as to what the CCCC actually is the CCCC is an international competition created by Animecon. It had its first edition this year with great success! It is a competition for duo’s and focusses on both the costume and the act. Every genre is welcome at this competition anime, manga, games, comics and so on making it a very diverse competition. And the prize for winning the finals? A trip to Japan for a week!
So what does this have to do with Abunai? Well Abunai is hosting the Dutch preliminaries for 2016 so if you and your cosplay partner would love a chance to compete during a very relaxed and diverse competition with a great prize this is the competition for you!
More information on the rules can be found on the Abunai website and more information about the competition can be found on the AnimeCon website.
Are you someone who enjoys watching Anime, or do you have a general interest in the Japanese Culture? If you are planning on visiting “Abunai! – Sugar spice and everything nice” maybe you would like to help us out. Each year we are in need of volunteers to help us during the Abunai! convention. Without our volunteers, there would not even be a convention at all! As a gopher, you will work in a fun team that does all sorts of handiwork on site. You even get your own T-shirt! If you are interested, go to your registration and makes sure to tick the box “I want to sign up as a Gopher!”
Unfortunately we have to inform you that the Karaoke Competition is now full. All the available slots for entries have been filled. You can still sign-up for the competition, but you will be put in the waitinglist. This means that if you want to compete in the competition you have to wait till one of the slots become available. We shall contact you if this happens.
We hosted a contest at our stand in the Dealer Room at both YaYcon and Animecon this year where visitors at our stand would have to guess the amount of candy contained within a (sealed) jar. The results of both contests are finally in. Congratulations to Isabel Huisintveld for getting closest at YaYcon: she guessed 199 candies, where the contents were 198. And congratulations to Julia Mestrum for guessing the exact contents of the jar at Animecon: 293 pieces.
Both winners have been informed and have received their prize: an all-weekend limited VIP Ticket for Abunai! 2015!
The sign-ups for AMV Competition and the Karaoke Competition are open. If you want to compete, please sign up. If you have any questions: don’t hesitate and ask them on our forum or on Facebook. For more info and the rules please check here.
