We are currently experiencing issues with our PayPal payment processor at the moment. We’re fully aware of the situation and have dispatched our trained ninjas to “work on” the issues. An update will be posted to the site once things are resolved. Please be patient – we’ll be back up and running before you know it! Thanks!

Long time friend of Katsucon, you might also know Yaya Han as the judge on “Heroes of Cosplay” on the Syfy network. But most cosplayers know her by her amazing outfits and extremely personable character. She will be sharing the table with us, selling her merch, and promised us she’d be wearing some of her best costumes. Come by, say hi, pick up a few mementos, and of course the usual Katsucon Mobile Crew will be there to entertain you with music, mixes, and fun!
We have received Yaya’s tentative schedule at our table (#2974 on the map):
Her appearances are subject to change, as she gets stopped in hallways, and will be conducting interviews throughout the convention floor.
You can pre-reg! There will probably be a discount as well. We’re going to give away some free stuff, talk about our upcoming The Katsucon Mobile Cosplay Contest at Geek Creation Show, and sell the usual value items like foam squishy ninjas, tee-shirts, and water bottles.
Also scheduled to appear: the creators of Point Blank!
Did you know the Geek Creation Show has an all-you-can-eat Bacon Bar?
