    Brief info about the convention:

    Date: April 27th 2014
    Theme: Wonderland
    Location: ICOONtheater, Amersfoort, Netherlands

    In 2014, fairy tales come true! YaYCon takes you to a enchanted and mystical place with its new theme, Wonderland. Pixies, caterpillars, Tinkerbell, you name it. We celebrate the mixture of fantasy and reality as we go from Neverland and Oz straight to Disney homages.
    Our Wonderland edition is a tribute to fiction that is fused with imagination. As a convention inspired by Japanese popular culture, we will pay attention to the ways in which reality and fantasy blend in Japanese fiction, such as Paprika or The Cat Returns. Moreover, we want to glance at the ways in which Western wonderlands have been adapted in Japanese pop-culture, such as Miyuki-chan in Wonderland. The theme is open to interpretation and will be filled with fancy events that swirl around tea parties, fantasy themes and masquerades.
    As always, we pay homage to Japanese popular culture and folklore primarily. We focus on the queer genres yaoi and yuri and these will structure our program and ideas as well. YaYCon in our book however stands for an open minded, feminist convention, not just a yaoi/yuri platform. We welcome everyone and try to keep our events as interesting and accessible as we can to cater to all of you. It doesn't matter to us whether you like yaoi, yuri or if you are more of a fantasy fan. YaYCon is there as a space that speaks to your imagination and where you can meet fellow-geeks. We aim to inform many different fans and bring them together to enjoy fan pop. If this interests you, please drop by!





    ~~~~~~~~~

    Important: Please note that AarinFantasy is in no way related to YaYCon 2013 and there is no official AarinFantasy gathering/panel/representative/sponsor in this event. We are just asked to reach out to more fans.

    Anymore updates about this convention will be posted by vegistie in the future.
