I know most of us are just envious of the Tales of Festival being held in Japan every year. But what about those in the West? I present to everyone Aselia Con, an upcoming Tales of Series convention to be held by Tales fans, for Tales fans.
Fans from all over the country will come together for a weekend of Tales fandom, including cosplay, contests, panels, and of course, plenty of gaming. This is, again, a convention for fans, by fans.
The event is currently in its preliminary planning stages, so the date and venue may still change. For now, registrations are already open at the official site. The organizers also need as much help as they can get for now, so donating for the con would be a big help. You can also buy their Aselia Con bags over at their store to support them. They're also holding a Mascot Design Contest right now, so go over to http://aseliacon.webs.com/ or the event's official Facebook page for more info. You can also check out or join the Tales of Outlaw Facebook Page.
