Ok so as promised im gonna blog about S-con an event I helped organise, which was held on April 1st 2012 at Scunthorpe Central Library.
When i say I helped organise it, I really mean a little bit of behind the scenes promo, and helping organise dealers and freebies etc.
So anyway we had loads of things lined up for S-con including some fabulous guest like Sonia Leong from Sweatdrop Studios, and the Lovely Akemi Solloway who came and brought a little more culture to the event with her lectures on shinto and Japanese traditions.
We had retailers from across the UK, and Artists from local areas and further afield.
Competitions were held, gaming was Done, and fun was had by all.
So on the day we get a full house, over 200 people turned up, in fact we had to send people away we was that full.
We had loads of fantastic Cosplayers. I myself went in Steampunk attire, a first for myself. Im still not sure I like it.
So let me share a few photos taken of the event.
Here are some of the Cosplayers that came, Click the picture for a better look x

We also raised a nice sum of money for Akemi Solloways charity Aid for Japan which helps children that have been orphaned by the disasters Japan suffered not so long ago. Such a good cause.
So to sum it up, the event went incredibly well. Too say this time last year we was telling everyone that due to Tokyopop going bust there would be no more Recon events in the UK. So we took it into our own hands and held this completly self sufficient event. S-CON.
perhaps there will be another.
Watch this space April 2013
