Anime Midwest 2012 Features Lolita Fashion Show
Lisle, IL - June 10, 2012 - Anime Midwest, one of the most popular up-and-coming fan-run anime conventions in Chicago, is excited to announce that the convention will host an independent designer's fashion show on Sunday morning, featuring the styles of Ick by Industrialkitty and mossbadger. Anime Midwest will be held July 6-8, 2012 at the Wyndham Lisle Hotel & Executive Convention Center in Lisle, Illinois, about 25 minutes from downtown Chicago.
Ick by Industrialkitty is a classic Lolita style clothing line independently manufactured in Chicago, IL. Ick offers a wide variety of sweet hand-made Lolita items to meet your tea-time needs!
mossbadger is an independent clothing and textiles company, specializing in silk-screened and digitally printed designs. Their limited edition garments and accessories are influenced by symbology, folklore, history, and magic.
Anime Midwest is also excited to announce that the convention will feature a special Karaoke Lounge on Saturday evening, hosted by Midwest Karaoke Madness.
Midwest Karaoke Madness is an eclectic group of veteran con-goers that noticed a distinct lack of revelry at conventions. These plucky young people decided that it was their calling, nay, their duty to amuse and entertain their fellow attendees. So, that’s exactly what they do...with the power of music! This troupe has delighted the masses at many conventions, such as Anime Central and Anime Milwaukee. They bring as much music as their binders can contain (somewhere around 10,000 songs) ranging from Anime and Disney to 80’s Pop and Party Rock.
Attendees interested in the convention can book hotel rooms for only $99 per night at http://animemidwest.com/location and attendees with hotel rooms at either the Wyndham or the across-the-street Hilton in Lisle can request hotel shuttle pickup from the Lisle Metra stop, which is about 6 minutes away.
Advance online registration for Anime Midwest ends June 10th, 2012, and can be found at http://animemidwest.com/register
Attendees who miss the online cutoff can register at the door for the weekend price of $35 per person.
Anime Midwest 2012 is a three-day event featuring anime screenings, video game tournaments, nerdcore and geeky concerts, and multiple special guest sessions. Guests include prolific voice actors such as Greg Ayres, Jamie Marchi, Ian Sinclair, and Joel McDonald, in addition to Japanese director Nabeshin and Yu-Gi-Oh abridged creator LittleKuriboh.
