Here is a taste of things to expect in 2014!
After much discussion, we have finally been able to confirm that we will indeed be able to have a Maid Cafe at Shuto Con 2014! Right now our plans are still in the beginning stages, but we will most likely have the cafe in Regency 1 (the room where tournament games were in 2013), and it may spill over into Regency 2 (the other gaming room next door). The cost will be between $5-$10/hour, and we will be offering snacks and light meals as well as teas, coffees, and desserts made by the wonderful pastry chefs at the Radisson.
We know that many of our attendees have said they would like to volunteer for the Maid Cafe, and if you would like to do so, send an email to email@example.com. Maids and Butlers are both desired, and those with previous cafe experience will be contacted first. We will not be supplying costumes/cosplay for the cafe, you must have one in your possession to be able to volunteer. Cafe hours will count towards are Volunteer badge compensation program.
HAPPY ENVELOPE PRIZE GAME
Here's how it goes; Tickets are given at the event entrance. We will call contestants up on stage by ticket numbers. Once on stage we will have 30 envelopes with prizes, all numbered 1-30. The contestant picks a number and gets the prize in the envelope. There will be 2 rounds with a final round following round 2. 5 envelopes divided between the 2 rounds will have final round passes. Those contestants go on to the final round for the grand prizes. There will be 2 final round passes in round one and 3 passes in round 2. The order of tickets found will be the order they pick in the final round. The Final round will have 5 envelops of best prizes. One envelope will contain the grand prize.

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 easy-to-use online registration forms that will go live in December 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 to come!
