May 10th-12th, 2013
After attending anime conventions, studying their mechanics, and learning what works and what doesn't for over a decade, community website AnimeBelle.com is proud to bring you a convention that has been many years in the making. At last, BELLECON 2013 will be coming to Jacksonville, Florida, May 10th-12th, at the Wyndham Jacksonville Riverwalk! BelleCON 2013 is a jam-packed weekend of Japanese animation and culture, ranging from traditional to modern, and all delivered with a heaping side of southern hospitality.
Just a few of our events this year include the Anime Fairytale Theater, our new show blending anime characters with traditional Japanese folk tales and kabuki theater; The Starlight Ball formal dance; the Kimono Fashion Show, a classic AnimeBelle event; and BelleCON's own Tea Room staffed by waitresses in kimono, serving tea and performing the traditional Japanese arts of song and dance. There will also be anime screenings, panels with industry guests, videogaming, interactive panels, and much, much more. BelleCON 2013 strives to breathe new life into classic convention events, by putting new twists on the staples you already know and love. Ticket sales for weekend passes, VIP passes, and Founder passes will be opening soon, as well as exciting announcements about guests, events, and more.
AnimeBelle.com was founded at the dawn of 2003, and has spent the last ten years as a hub for anime information in the south. The reputation of AnimeBelle has grown far beyond the website, extending into anime-themed gameshows and Japanese cultural events. Since its inception, AnimeBelle has never stopped growing. As we've always said at AnimeBelle, “y'all come on back now, y'hear?”
