On March 24th treat yourself to a day at Phoenix Devcon. This free event is the perfect introduction to conventions for the curious anime geek, gamer, or pop culture fan. Devcon is hosted at the ASU West Campus from 9 am to 9 pm. This year the Devcon department will be collaborating with the Society of West ASU Gamers club (S.W.A.G) and other clubs to provide a larger variety of entertainment and reach a wider audience.

Other, less fortunate, changes are happening with this year’s Devcon as well. Due to lack of available space and time the con will be cut down to only one day, versus the traditional two-days.

        Fans of Devcon may know that the event was sadly canceled last year. Due to security fumbles and a lack of active members the ASU Cos Club decided not to host the convention. Luckily, Devcon will be making an exciting return this year, to the delight of veteran con goers and cosplayers in the valley.

        Local cosplayer Adaiah attended Devcon in 2016, the last time the event was held. She says Devcon is a good event for new cosplayers and con goers because “It’s small and not super overwhelming like the big conventions.” However, since the con is small make sure to take some friends to keep you company during the slow parts of the day.

        Devcon, like other local cons, relies partially on fan panels, blocks of time where fans talk about a range of subjects or host games, ranging from thirty minutes to an hour, to entertain the casual con goers.

        Devcon has a special place in the hearts of Arizona cosplayers as a fun free event to hang out with fellow cosplayers, meet new people, and show off the hard work they put into their panels and cosplays. Come check it out and join in the festivities this March, Devcon is coming back with a bang.
