Shuto Con - “It's all about U!”
...and it IS all about you! Shuto Con is Lansing's Annual Anime Convention, coming to the Lansing Center March 18th-20th, 2016. This convention will be a three day event held in Lansing, MI that focuses on Artists and the art of Interactive Cosplaying!
Starting Friday morning at the Lansing Center and Radisson Hotel Lansing our convention will run from 9AM until 6PM Sunday afternoon. We will have several large rooms for panels, over 50 unique artists as well as several dealers to get your latest anime goodies from, three anime viewing rooms, a huge video game room open during the entire convention, a table top gaming room, special guests, and much more!
Shuto Con also hopes to give you a truly unique experience by participating in our “Interactive Cosplay” experience. We highly encourage ALL our attendees to dress up as their favorite characters and act like them during the convention. A mock battle arena will be staged where you can “fight” it out with other cosplayers, or even take “bets” on who will win! Special points will be given out to those that participate the most, and at Closing Ceremonies on Sunday afternoon we will announce the Shuto Con “King and Queen of Cosplayers”! If you do not wish to participate, but would still like to capture those fond memories, we ask that your bring your cameras and/or video recorders and witness a viral hit in the making! For more information and rules on this event please visit the Interactive Cosplay page.
Also, be sure to check out our Facebook and Twitter pages! Our Facebook page is updated almost daily with special events around Lansing, and will occasionally have promo codes to get good deals on your badges!

January 13th, 2016 - We have some sad news to report this morning... R Bruce Elliott will unfortunately not be able to appear at Shuto Con this year due to personal family matters. He is very disappointed that he had to cancel, but family matters have made it unavoidable (and we agree that family should come first). However he hopes to be able to come back another year, in which we absolutely will once he is ready to return! We wish R Bruce Elliott all the best, and we apologize to you all, our attendees, for I know many of you were looking forward to meeting him.
January 12th, 2016 - Due to popular demand, we have now added Single Day (1-Day) Badges to our Registration system, but they will only be available for one month, and only 200 will be available of each badge type online (more will be available at door). If you are coming in from out of state, we would like to encourage you to purchase your badges online as soon as you can to guarantee your attendance to our convention, as there is always the possibility that we may sell out of badges at the door!
