Concept Galaxy Hosting Auditions for Zenkaikon 2009
- VALLEY FORGE, PENNSYLVANIA -- March 1, 2009: Concept Galaxy is
organizing an interactive production for Zenkaikon 2009, and will be
auditioning cosplay talent from around the area to participate.
Auditions will take place on August 15, 2009, at the Radisson Valley
Forge Hotel, the same location as the convention, Zenkaikon. Those who
plan to audition should come prepared with a minute-long
"in-character" monologue as the character they wish to play. Stephanie
Chateau from Concept Galaxy will be hosting the auditions, and will be
looking for cosplayers that fit into the categories listed below.
Naughty, Wicked, and V.I.L.E. Villains
Concept Galaxy is looking for talented cosplayers to portray their
favorite anime or video game villain. Those who are chosen to
participate in the production will act out the part of delinquents
plotting to commit a heinous crime at Zenkaikon 2009.
Good Guys, Champions of Justice, and A.C.M.E. Agents
Concept Galaxy is looking for talented cosplayers to portray
characters that fight for the ideals of truth and justice. Those who
are chosen to participate in the production play the part of heroes
attempting to stop the villains from succeeding in their plot.
Zenkaikon Host Announcer
Concept Galaxy is looking for talented cosplayers who enjoy making
their own original costume designs. They are seeking a host or hostess
to represent Zenkaikon and serve as its "announcer" for events that
will happen throughout the weekend. The character should compliment
"Zenkai-chan" - the official Zenkaikon mascot who appears on all of
the convention's promotional material.
Additional information regarding the time of auditions, the room they
will take place in, will be forthcoming in future announcements. Those

Zenkaikon was formed by the merger of the anime and sci-fi convention
Zentrancon and the anime convention Kosaikon, both in the Philadelphia
area. In 2006, they put on their first event, which was a tremendous
success. Zenkaikon will return for its fourth installment on November
7 and 8, 2009, moving into the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge. The
convention will feature two days of programming with dealers, artists,
panels, performances, gaming, and more. The Zenkaikon staff wishes to
thank the many attendees who made the 2008 event such a huge success.
They hope to see this trend continue in 2009, and are actively
anticipating expansion with larger performance and panel areas, dealer
space, and video game rooms.
