Hey gang! It’s time to start thinking about Wai-Con 2012, albeit with a few minor adjustments.
Back in 2011 when we announced Wai-Con 2012 Apocalypse at our closing ceremony, we were imagining all the fantastic shows and ideas that could flow into our convention. What we didn’t count on was that it could become distasteful – especially with the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in early March.
After some deep thought and self-reflection, we’ve decided to drop Apocalypse as the theme for 2012. It would be in poor taste to keep a theme based around devastation when there is so much heartbreak going on in Japan right now.
In our previous General Meeting held in April, members discussed and voted on the new theme.
Wai-Con 2012 Invasion!
That’s right – barricade the windows and defend the homestead because we are invading your personal space from outer space! Celebrating all anime with an invasion-based theme, whether realistic or fantastic.
We’ll have more details on the new theme at a later date, with official artwork soon. Stay tuned, and watch the skies!
