Next up, we have two of our official Cosplay judges to Announce, please give a big SoDak welcome back to Kaai and Callie Jiang, whom are returning this year.
This year has been full of change, after years of hard work and amazing artwork our loyal artists Liz and Becca Hendrickson are retiring from SoDak Con after this year. Both have made a name for themselves and have progressed to the point that they no longer will be able give SoDak Con art the attention it needs. So, because of that we are having a mascot contest this year. The ones that win will be asked to be SoDak Con's newest artist. Go to the website for more information.
We have so much we're excited to announce in the next coming months leading up to con! We're anticipating more big news and more cool things to show you! Stand by for more awesome news and let’s get this party started!
