The San Francisco Bay Area region of California is very fertile ground for Anime conventions, Cosplay or otherwise.  Hyper-con is one of   the newest and most exciting additions to the growing list of events in this genre.  Now in its third year, Hyper-con returns to the San Mateo County Event Center with “ambition” as its theme.

Hyper-con was created by artist and businessman, Bordin “Mark” Marsinkul. Marsinkul has cultivated a reputation as an astonishingly fast artist who amazes his customers with the final and wondrous results in mere minutes. Bordin Marsinkul has been a frequent guest at other conventions such as Wonder-Con, Sac-Anime and the Anime-Expo.

Hpyer-con is a celebration of “Japanese Anime and Pop Culture.”  Activities include unique events such as a gathering entitled, “Anime Con of the Dead”. This will be a variation of a Zombie inspired flash mob which will have an Anime influence. Another very unique event will be a stand-up show which promises to became an adult affair (guests will be asked for identification to enter)!  The convention also will include classic events like panel presentations, fashion shows and a masquerade/cosplay contest.  A complete schedule of events for the weekend can be found here:  http://www.hyper-con.com/?page_id=22

This is the first year that Hyper-con will be a three-day convention, beginning on Friday, September 7 and ends on Sunday, September 9.  Will you come join us?  RSVP and get more information on our HyperCon Facebook Event Page:  https://www.facebook.com/events/432217290163287/
