Anime Con

Teen Anime Con!
Friday, June 19 from 6:30 - 10:30 p.m.
@ Allen Public Library, Ages 12 - 18

This year Anime Con is after hours! We'll take over the library with our games, crafts, and contests. Because of the special nature of this event, a parental consent form is required for all participants.
Don't forget to download the Parental Consent Form, and turn it in at the Con.
You must bring this form with you to Anime Con in order to participate!

Cosplay Contest!
  • Real weapons are NOT allowed.
  • Fake weapons MUST be sheathed.
  • Costumes MUST be PG and family-friendly.
    (If you can’t wear it to your grandmother’s, you can’t wear it here).
  • Use of liquids, messy substances, or overly large prop pieces are not allowed.
  • Anyone not adhering to these rules may be asked by a staff person to change into appropriate clothing or to leave the library premises.
  • If you have questions, feel free to ask!
Judging and Awards:
  • Costumes will be judged by your fellow con attendees based on originality, creativity, and costume detail.
  • All participants will receive a designated number that must be attached and easily visible by attendees.
  • The number will be assigned when you register at the Con.
  • Attendees will be given a form to vote for their favorite 3 cosplayers.
  • Winners will be announced at the end of the Con.
  • Winners must be present and in costume to be eligible for a prize. Each winner must come onstage to show off their awesome costumes!
We will be giving away all prizes at the end of the day, including Cosplay prizes. All teens who attend the final session will be entered into a special prize drawing!

Participants must be present to win and are only eligible to win one prize.


Cons are fun places where your teens get to talk and obsess over something they love! Because of the special nature of this Con, the library will not be open to the public or to parents. The summer Anime Con is for teens ages 12 - 18 only, and we are firm on the age.

The glass Gallery will be open to waiting parents starting at 10:15 p.m. We ask that parents stay in the Gallery and not interrupt the final part of the program in the Auditorium. Parents are required to pick their teen up at the library NO LATER than 10:45 p.m. All other rules and requirements for Teen Anime Con are outlined in the required Parental Consent Form.
