MomoCon is about more than just the yearly convention every spring, we host events all throughout the year! Since 2006, MomoCon on Tour has been traveling all over the Southeast hosting photoshoots, dances, art events, game days, tournaments and more! MomoCon on Tour is a great way to experience tiny pieces of MomoCon, some of which we were previously never able to do at the convention due to lack of space and manpower. Some of the photoshoots we host are themed (like the Middle Georgia Massacre), and some events raise money for various charities (like the Pretty in Pink Ball).
MomoCon is happy to host group photoshoots throughout the year! These are sometimes themed, sometimes not, always open to all, and usually free! MomoCon volunteer photographers are available on site for photos, with the resulting galleries available online at the MomoCon Flickr.
Got a suggestion for a MomoCon on Tour event? Let us know! We are always looking for the next opportunity to host events all throughout the Southeast!
COSPLAYERS ON ICE
MomoCon is happy to announce the return of Cosplayers on Ice, a free photo shoot event for all ages held at Centennial Park Ice Rink in Atlanta, Georgia, this December! Bring out your best holiday outfits and amazing cosplay to join hundreds of other costumers and professional photographers for a fun day of ice skating, play in the park, and more, culminating in a large group photo!
Cosplayers on Ice is one of the most popular MomoCon on Tour events, due to the very public nature of the event, we ask that all costumers leave large props at home, as this is a very public event. *MomoCon is hosting the photoshoot, but the rink itself is available to any attendee wishing to pay the fee. Skating is at your own risk, and MomoCon will not be hosting any rentals or take responsibility for people or events on the ice rink.*
Who: Open to all
What: Ice Skating & Photoshoot
When: TBD, early December
Costs: Photoshoot, free. The park charges a rink fee and a small skate rental fee, if you wish to skate
We host regular photoshoots throughout the year, stay tuned for the next announcement!
