Hi all, I come bearing more news from Tekkoshocon! This year, we have decided to host an event at which all members of our extended family - Tekko and KKF staff, attendees, and friends - can celebrate and ring in the New Year together. This event is non-alcoholic and open to all ages.( Tekko New Year's!Collapse )
We apologize to those of you who heard about this event at KKF and were wondering about the delay in announcing any information. Our original site for this event fell through and it took us quite a while to find an alternate site - though I'm glad we found it in the end, because it's close to the parkway and absolutely gorgeous! We encourage you to drop by for a little while or stay the whole evening. Either way, it'll be a great time!
Hi all! Today we've got our first set of guest bios for your perusal. These are guests who have already been announced on the Tekkoshocon website, but their bios are available here first!( Carrie SavageCollapse )( Kyle HebertCollapse )( Vic MignognaCollapse )
Stay tuned for more guest bios coming soon!

Who's going this year? Are you dressing up? If so as what?
What can I expect, I've never been.
Wait no longer! There are only a few rooms left at the Kurokiiro rate of $119 a night! To get this most delicious rate, you must call the Best Western off the Parkway directly at 412-922-7070 and you MUST mention Kurokiiro to get a room reserved.
use the website, it is full of lies and will tell you there is delicious cake, but they are completely booked unless you stay two nights. (we're not forcing you to stay two nights, that's silly.) So call the Best Western off the Parkway now at 412-922-7070 to get the discounted rate of $119 a night for Kurokiiro attendees only!

Okay, we know you're not going to spend ALL your time at Kurokiiro Festival, hanging out with Carrie Savage, playing video games, and buying things from the dealers' room. You need to eat things besides the snacks we'll be selling. So, the question is, Where do you go?
Never fear! Cid, Leafy-chan and I, your fearless con chair, took an epic journey to find out the answer!
For our own sanity, I have to add--Kurokiiro Festival, Tekkoshocon INC, Cid, Leafy, and myself are not responsible for you or anything you do once you leave the convention premises. However, since you're associated with us, being in the same fandom, we do ask that you obey the cardinal rule of Tekkoshocon and don't be stupid. Thanks. :)
COLOR CODED FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE.
BLUE = Money GREEN = Photospot RED = Food PURPLE = Other
First things first! What can you get to using just your own two feet?( Let's go on an adventure!Collapse )
Still a little confused?Well, Google Maps has an option to type in what you're looking for! Just click here and you can find what you're looking for. I warn you, it may be outdated--hence the field trip.
I hope this was helpful to all of you. Now, we'll see you at Kurokiiro, right? XD
You may be in this so keep an eye out. The pics go by kind of fast (and some of the video faster). Lemme know if you like.TekkoYATTA! 2009
KuroKiiro is in need of a few good panelists to run some panels and workshops at the KuroKiiro Festival!
Think you have an awesome idea for a panel and want to test it at a smaller convention first before taking it to a larger one? We'd love to have you! Or, if you have a panel or workshop that you just love to run, apply away! We are looking for Japanese culture, pop culture, and everything in between to fill our panels schedule.
Take a look at the KuroKiiro website at http://www.kurokiiro.com/
