About

The funds from this Kickstarter will go directly to the production and support of the convention. Celebrity and cosplay guests, their flights/travel, hotels, our venue, support services (security, food, transportation), promotional items (posters, flyers, radio ads and TV commercial), exclusive items (comic variant, t-shirts, badges, program).

Currently our celebrity guests include: Steve Cardenas, Steve Coulter, Ming Chen, Mike Zapcic, Richard Horvitz, Sean Schemmel, Austin St. John, Karan Ashley, David Yost, Walter Jones, and Blake Foster. We also have several Cosplay guests coming from all over the country and even one from the UK. They include: D-Piddy, Knightmage (Michael Wilson), Ashen Phoenix, and Torathena (Lucy Myatt). 

We are going to have a Cosplay Contest, Table Top and Video Game Tournaments, Panels, Artists and Vendors. We want to stay as local as possible, and a majority of our artists and vendors are from the Central PA area. 

We are hoping to turn this convention into an annual event. Any funds that are left over, will be used to help with the following years convention and help make the next year even bigger and better. 

Risks and challenges

Some of the challenges that we may have if this project is successfully funded are: Guests possibly backing out, travel arrangements falling through and lodging agreements falling through.

If a guest does have to back out due to circumstances outside of their control, we should know about it at least 30 days prior and will be able to schedule a different guest in their stead through their agent.

For travel and lodging arrangements, we have several back up options for our guests. Airfare is should not change, weather permitting, but for the guests travel to and from the convention to their hotel is being taken care of. If the company that is scheduled to complete this, backs out, we are prepared to hire another company to fill that role. And the same goes for our hotel/lodging agreements.
