Attention! Mississippi Anime Invasion Super Con-fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix: Hyperfighting Edition (SC2THRHE) dates are *drumroll*
October 25-26th at the Oxford Convention Center in Oxford, MS!

Do you know what this means?! It means we need ART!! So DESIGN CONTEST TIME! This year has a street fighter theme and our girls Zarame and Hikikomori need outfits!

-Zarame's base outfit is here: tinypic.com/m/i5oj6h/2
-Hikikomori does not have a base design and is thus a blank slate! She is an otaku through and through and believes all anime fans should stay at home and enjoy enjoy their anime alone, so she's trying to destroy the con!

Feel free to submit as many designs as you'd like, they can be sketches, colored art, whatever! The contest ends May 16th (that's 2 weeks)! Submit your designs to: maiconstaff@gmail.com

WINNER: Will get their choice of prize:
-a 2-day pass to M.A.I. Con Season 2
OR
- a 3-day pass to Kami-Con Season 7

GOOD LUCK!

Thank you all for entering, we had a lot of great designs again this year!
Hey guys, it's that time again! What time? What, you don't know? It's Shio and Kosho New Outfit Contest Time! Shio is a heartless and Kosho must go to a fantasy world to save her (with your help of course) and they need new outfits so all this can happen! (Because that's how magical girls work, right?) 

Entering is easy! Simply draw, paint, sketch, model, whatever and outfit and email it to: kamiconstaff@kamicon.net with the subject line: season 7 outfit contest. You can submit as many times as you want! 
The prize: a free 3-day pass to Kami-Con Season 7! 
Time frame? The last day to enter in is Sunday, April 20th. 
The winning outfits will be featured in all Kami-Con Season 7 artwork and will be turned into real life cosplays for the con-girls! 

Some helpful guideline:
- Shio’s color scheme is typically red/pink, white, and yellow. (Take note that Shio is a heartless this year, so you can take liberties with her color scheme)
- Kosho’s color scheme is typically purple, black, and blue.
- While the design does not need to prominently display a star or moon, Shio needs to have some sort of star adornment in her hair, and Kosho must have some sort of crescent moon adornment in her hair.
- Outfit designs must be family friendly to PG-13. Nothing too revealing!
Good luck everyone!
Hi everyone! It's been a while, huh?

We're already preparing for Kami-Con Season 6, and we're starting our yearly DESIGN CONTEST!

How does it work?

Next year will be Kami-Con Season 6: Heartless in Wonderland. As you might be able to infer, it's got a bit of a Kingdom Hearts and Alice in Wonderland feel going for it.

So what we want are designs for Shio and Kosho! Winning designs will be used for Shio and Kosho artwork for Season 6, and also be made into full-fledged cosplays to be worn onstage!

Here are some guidelines to help you out:
- The theme has a Kingdom Hearts / Alice in Wonderland feel, so designs leaning towards these themes are more likely to be chosen!
- Shio's color scheme is typically red/pink, white, and yellow.
- Kosho's color scheme is typically purple, black, and blue.
- While the design does not need to prominently display a star or moon, Shio needs to have some sort of star adornment in her hair, and Kosho must have some sort of crescent moon adornment in her hair.
- Outfit designs must be family friendly to PG-13. Nothing too revealing!
- No wedding-themed designs or any designs that look like a wedding dress! Co-Chair Chelsea says so!

Also:
- You may submit as many designs as you like.
- You can submit anything from a scribbled sketch to a fully colored design. Everything will be judged fairly!

That's it!

Outfit designs are due by Tuesday April the 2nd at 5:30pm CST. No designs will be accepted after this time! To submit your design(s), send an e-mail to kamiconstaff@kamicon.net with the subject Season 6 Design Contest

You've got 2 weeks, so get to arting! Winners will be announced shortly after the contest concludes.

The Kami-Con Season 5 Design Contest has STARTED! It will end 11:59 pm CST, March 30th.

The theme this year is Shio & Kosho vs The World, and you know what that means– it's a fighting theme!

Yes, Shio and Kosho have a lot of obstacles standing in their way of World Conquest, and what better way to overcome adversity than by punching it in the face? So, the congirls need some super-cool fighting outfits to kick butt in! And we want YOU to design them!

How do you enter?

That's easy! Just design outfits for them! This can be anything as simple as a rough sketch to a fully-colored masterpiece. You can design for one girl, or both! AND, you can enter as many times as you want!

The winning designs will be made into full-fledged cosplays for the girls onstage at the con, and will be featured on all official artwork! And of course, the designs will be credited to you.

There are a few guidelines to follow, though!
- Shio and Kosho need their signature Star and Moon hairpieces somewhere in their hair
- While not a necessity, Shio's colors are typically white/pink/yellow, and Kosho's are usually black/purple/blue.
- Outfits designed together usually go best together, so try to design for both for a better chance of being chosen! ^^

You can find their base designs to start with here:
Shio: www.kamicon.net/images/shioref…
Kosho: www.kamicon.net/images/koshore…

To submit a design, all you have to do is send it in an e-mail to kamiconstaff@kamicon.net with "Design Contest" somewhere in the subject. That's it!

The deadline is March 30th at 11:59 pm CST. So go get designing!
The winners of our contest have been contacted, and here are the winning entries!

Magical Animal Mascots Contest Winners by Kami-ConDA

From left to right, we've got...

The spirit of the Shojo, the White Tiger!
The siprit of the Shonen, the Red Bird!
The spirit of the Tsundere, the Blue Dragon!
The spirit of the Yandere, the Black Turtle!

You'll be able to vote on your favorite at the con, so make sure you're there!
The due date is 11:59pm CST, Nov. 14th!


Congoers! Surely you have been wondering what the International Egg of Mystery event is all about!

Some details are still being worked out, but in short, we're...
GIVING SHIO AND KOSHO AN ANIMAL MASCOT!

And we want YOU to design it!

There are some rules, however! You can't just go off designing all willy-nilly.

We are looking for designs of four different types of animal mascots:
- A WHITE TIGER with a SHOUJO personality*
- A RED BIRD with a SHOUNEN personality*
- A BLACK TURTLE with a YANDERE personality*
- A BLUE DRAGON with a TSUNDERE personality*

But! These are just general archetypes. Your designs can be of any subset of these categories. For example, your BLUE DRAGON can be a chameleon or other lizard or serpent-like creature. Your WHITE TIGER can be any cat-like creature. Think Pokémon in terms of creativity and versatility!

The designs should be small, cute, and gender-neutral.

*What are these personalities that I speak of?
- Shoujo - Girly anime! Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, those sorts of things!
- Shounen - Rough tough boy anime! Dragonball Z, One Piece, Naruto!
- Yandere - These are the sweet-then-scary girl types! You might want to google this one. ;D
- Tsundere - I-It's not like I actually care about you or anything! Baka!!

Does all of this sound confusing? No worries. When in doubt, just design anyway! We'll love and adore every last entry!

The four winning designs will be chosen for the International Egg of Mystery event at Kami-Con, and ONE of them just might become Shio and Kosho's PERMANENT animal mascot!

Winning artists will get full credit for designs and a prize for winning!

* You may enter as many designs as you like as many times as you like.
* Your design DOES NOT have to be a full, beautiful piece of artwork. Sketches are perfectly fine.

Please send all entries to kamiconstaff@kamicon.net with the subject "Mascot Design" somewhere in the title.

THIS CONTEST ENDS NOV. 14th AT 11:59pm CST. PLEASE HAVE ALL ENTRIES TO US BY THEN.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or on our Facebook page! (www.facebook.com/kamiconstaff)

Have fun and GO GET DESIGNING!
