Here is a taste of things to expect in 2015!
Cutthroat Cosplay --- Saturday TBA
Attention Competitive Cosplayers!!
We are currently looking for four teams to compete in our newest Shuto Con Interactive Cosplay event: "Cutthroat Cosplay"!
Inspired by the Food Network show "Cutthroat Kitchen", four teams will consist of three members and each team will compete to win the cash they are given at the beginning of the event through a series of three challenges. Each team will be given $1500 to start out with, and will subsequently be forced to bid on/against "sabotages" throughout the competition. The winners of each round will move on, and one team will be eliminated until one team remains after the third round. The ultimate winners of the competition keep their remaining cash, and will be named the 2015 Cutthroat Cosplay Champions!
Entry Rules: Teams must consist of 3 members, two being the "makers", and one being the "model". Only the "makers" will be allowed to create within the designated space(s), and the "model" will be used to put the cosplay pieces on.
Competitors must ONLY use the materials we supply to them, they may not bring in any additional items to help them create.
Entries must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org in the form of a 5-10 minute YouTube video of the team showing what they have done, what they work with, and how they work together.
Team Entries will be accepted between December 1st - 31st. Teams will be selected/contacted during the month of January and will be given further information regarding at event rules and exact time/dates of the competition.
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor ^_- !
The Shuto Con Maid Café is a chance for Shuto Con attendees to have an experience similar to what is offered at the establishments famous in Japan. Attendees of all ages may attend and can expect to enjoy being served and entertained by our team of Maids and Butlers in a family-friendly environment. This year many changes are being made to improve this experience, including additional seating and a performance by some of the Maid Café team! We are also sweetening the experience by offering a new, desserts-only menu. Entrance for the 2015 Shuto Con Maid Café will be TBD per person (pre-pay only) with an included choice of a dessert set and beverage. Attendees will be allowed to stay for approximately 45 minutes.
The Volunteer application for the 2015 Shuto Con Maid Café is now open!

Shuto Con Pokemon Tournament --- Saturday TBD
Attention Pokemon Trainers! There have been so many participants in recent years that we have had to restructure our Pokemon challenge. This year’s Shuto Con Pokemon challenge has been transformed into a traditional tournament format! Don’t fear though, the Interactive Pokemon battling of past years will be back better than ever before!
Using the new Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire games, trainers will take part in bring-6-choose-3 1v1 flat battles. The tournament will be run in a Swiss format, meaning that everyone will get to battle in every round of the tournament until the top cut of trainers is taken. The top cut will then compete in a classic elimination tournament to determine the 2015 champion of Shuto Con! More information, official rules, and times will be posted to our Facebook page, Program Guide, and/or on our Forum soon!
Cosplay Competition --- Saturday TBA
Shuto Con is pleased to announce the return of the Cosplay Competition. However for those that competed last year things will be run differently this year. We are focused on putting together a bigger better show, and a much more tailored competition experience. We want to focus on our attendees as much as possible and are having pre-judging appointments for all craftsmanship entries. We have an easy-to-use online registration form that is currently live for pre-registration allowing entrants to choose a time that best fits their convention experience. We are going to do our best to make the competition experience great for all participants!
...And more events at the con!
