This year, we will have several tracks of programming.
Our tracks for 2013 are:
General - Everything you expect from Kawa Kon. This track includes our main events such as the Masquerade as well as miscellaneous programming that doesn't fit into another track.
Theme track: Old School - Nostalgic for your childhood? We'll be celebrating the cartoons, toys, and video games of the 70s-90s, including a My Little Pony modding contest and a pajama party.
Adults Only - This is a track for the 18+ crowd, taking place only in the evening. Watch clips from your favorite Japanese bloodfests, and answer embarrassing questions at our speed-dating event.
Anime/Manga/Video Games - You wanted more, so we're giving you a track full of your favorite entertainment from Japan, including the Worst Video Game Tournament and a Black Butler tea.
Art & Writing - The creative track is back with even more hands-on workshops on crafting, drawing, and writing. Events include an improved Fan Fiction Contest and a Luck of the Draw guided art class.
British Invasion - If you're a fan of Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Monty Python, this track is bound to be your favourite. Play in the second annual Doctor Who-lympics and join the Steampunk track for our Time Travellers' Ball and High Tea.
Cosplay - Want to learn how to draft your own pattern? Apply the perfect makeup? Build armor from craft foam? The Cosplay track will teach cosplay techniques, both for beginners and seasoned vets, as well as stage movement and scriptwriting for skits.
Doll Festival - Bring your doll to our annual tea, and make her a new costume with our Project Cosplay for Dolls event.
Japanese Culture - This is Japan beyond anime, a land where the customs of traditional culture coexist with modern tech. Panelists will teach aspects of Japanese culture, both past and present.
Steampunk - Re-imagine the Victorian period with panels on building steampunk props and events held cooperatively with the British Invasion track, including High Tea.
