MiniCon 8

Saturday, July 8, 2017 at the Rust Library

Calling all teens! Join us for our 8th annual celebration of anime and manga! Participate in competitions, learn cosplay techniques, sing karaoke or just hang out with your anime-loving friends. 

Bring your old manga for an all-day manga swap, and walk away with new titles.

Awards for both the art and the costume contests will be announced at 4 p.m.


Show off your artistic talent! Submit your artwork to the Rust Library Teen Center by 2 p.m., Saturday, July 8 to include it in this year's contest.

Digital art should be submitted by 12 p.m., Saturday, July 8 to RustLibrary@loudoun.gov (subject line: MiniCon).

From tails to face paint to armor to hoop skirts, our cosplayers bring anime and manga to life with their creative costumes at 2:30 p.m.

Winners announced the day of the convention. Costumes are judged by a panel for both quality and creativity, so don’t be afraid to go crazy!
