Got questions about our cosplay events? Feel free to contact the Cosplay Coordinator.
Impress our Setsucon judges with your best cosplay! Contestants will have a private judging session during the day. Following that, they have the opportunity to show off their costume on stage during the Masquerade. Judging is based on multiple skill levels, so everyone can enter!
As one of our biggest events, the Masquerade is perfect for con-goers who want to show off their costumes and creativity (individually or as a group). Remember, skits must be anime, manga, or Japanese culture related. Following the performances we get the crowd involved with the fun. We will select random members from the audience to improvise scenes thought up on the spot.
Panels are events run by enthusiasts in a certain topic. The content varies every year, but generally speaking you can look forward to in-depth discussions on anime, manga, Japanese culture and history, Japanese pop culture and voice actors. This also includes some live events, normally martial arts demonstrations and how-to-draw workshops.
Whimsical, topical, comical, and historical; the moving pictures from Japan have shaped culture and arts for decades. Come join us for screenings of television series, OVA's, and movies covering a variety of genres. The Programming Committee of Setsucon strives to provide an enjoyable experience with exciting new productions, beloved classics, and even obscure titles from the depths of anime and film.
If you have any suggestions or recommendations for specific titles, please send a message to the Viewings Coordinator. Please remember that Setsucon only airs titles that are officially and actively licensed in the United States of America. As such, we will not show any fan-subs, fan-dubs, or other unlicensed products.
