Guest Announcement #1

Posted by [email protected] on May 11, 2015 at 10:30 AM

We’re all super excited to announce that Pokemon voice actress Michele Knotz will returning to CloverCon this year! She will be hosting Knotz Your Everyday Panel from 1:45-2:45, and will be signing autographs from 3:00-4:00. You don’t want to miss this!

Check out the "blurb" for her panel:

"Hi there! My name is Michele Knotz and I’ve been a voice actress for over ten years now, but you know what? Enough about me! What about you? Yeah, that’s right! YOU! I’m tired of sitting at the front of panel rooms blabbing about my career. What do YOU have to offer ME? How can YOU entertain ME? Can you sing? Can you draw? Can you create awesome cosplay costumes? Can you tell jokes? Can you act? Can you dance? Can you beat box? If you come to my panel and show me what you’ve got I will have a prize for you! Feel free to bring music, props, anything you’d like! That’s why this is Knotz Your Every Day Panel. I’m not going to talk about my life and entertain you. I want you to tell me about your life and entertain me!"

And check out her bio on our Special Guests page!

Guest Announcement #3

And last but not least, our newest CloverCon guest is Charles Dunbar!

“Charles Dunbar is graduate of Hunter College, CUNY, where he received a BA in Religion and Anthropology and an MA in Cultural Anthropology. His thesis, Pilgrimage, Pageantry and Fan Communities was published in 2011 and focused on anime convention participation, including spending habits, cosplay, demographics, communal behaviour and convention culture.“

Charles will be presenting his panel Pokemon as Mythic Narrative! We’re really looking forward to it!

Check out the description of his panel:

"Mythology tells the tale of lives through epic battles, conflicted characters, and encounters with all manner of strange and powerful creatures. It doesn't matter if these tales are spun from the web of a storyteller, or come to life in the palm of our hands. This lecture explores the idea of mythology, told to us through the medium of tiny monsters and the bonds we form with them."

The final schedule will be posted soon!

Also, returning to CloverCon this year is Adam Hennessy with Anime Parliament®!

 

“Welcome to the highest court in the anime multi-verse. Anime Parliament® is where you can step forward as a character or just a concerned fan, and attempt to institute the changes you feel need to be made:

 

  • Do you want to have Relena Peacecraft kicked out of office?
  • How about giving Sango that restraining order against Miroku?
  • Want to make Akito Tenkawa the new captain of the Nadesico?
  • Why not petition to make Angelic Layer an Olympic event?

 

Just come forward, state your case, bring witnesses, and make it happen. But remember, not everyone in the Parliament will agree with you.”

It’s going to be a lot of fun, (as always) so make sure to check it out!
