MomoCon is about more than just the yearly convention every May. 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 may not be able to do at the convention due to logistics and manpower. Some of the events we host are themed (like the Middle Georgia Massacre), and some raise money for various charities (like the Pretty in Pink Ball). MomoCon On Tour lets you continue enjoying MomoCon events throughout the year!
MomoCon hosts on-location photoshoots to show off your costumes. Photographers and models will have the opportunity to take the photos they want in the good company of their fellow cosplayers without the crowds and hardships of trying to make a cosplay last through a convention day.
Volunteer photographers are on site to capture cosplayers in their glory against a variety of backgrounds. Some photoshoot events may include foliage, water features, and rustic structures, while others might be more modern, beachy, or even spooky. Join with your friends for a day of lasting memory and FUN!!
COSPLAYERS ON ICE
MomoCon’s most popular and largest photoshoot is Cosplayers On Ice. Many cosplayers (and non cosplayers) come out to ice skate, partake in the photoshoot, enjoy the atmosphere, and visit with the MomoCon community at this annual winter event. Typically held in early December in Atlanta, (and often again in Chattanooga or elsewhere in the Southeast region), this is a must-do-event for many MomoCon fans!

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 square, and more, culminating in a large group photo!
Cosplayers on Ice is one of the most popular MomoCon on Tour events! 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.*
Generally, photoshoot rules will follow the same guidelines set forth in our Convention Policies , however occasionally, the venue or area for the photoshoot will have more specific rules. Please check the individual event page on Facebook for more details.
Etiquette for Cosplay Photographers
-Ask for permission.
-Respect the cosplayer and other Photographers.
-Remind the cosplayer that the photos might be made public.
Etiquette for Cosplayers
– Know when to say “NO”, don’t ever do anything that your uncomfortable with.
– Know your physical limitations, don’t strain yourself posing.
– Don’t attack, slander and/or quarrel with other cosplayers.
– HAVE FUN!!
Some of the most memorable MomoCon photoshoots are Middle Georgia Massacre, Fall Photoshoot at Life University, Spring Photoshoot at Millennium Gate, Historic Rhodes Hall, various shoots in South Carolina, Chattanooga, Huntsville, Savannah, and 10+ years of MomoCon Cosplayers On Ice!

MomoCon is happy to present formal and semi-formal dance events, with previous partners including the Georgia Aquarium, Dragon Con, and various charity organizations! We have hosted more than a dozen dance/formal ball events, typically once a year, over the past 10 years.
Most MomoCon dances have a dress code that is Semi-Formal (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semi-formal), generally meaning button-down shirt and tie or suit for men and long or short dress for women (or vice versa in the case of crossplay). Costumes ARE allowed, so long as they are semi-formal. Formal dress is also allowed at Semi-Formal events.
Acceptable alternatives include:
-Formal military wear (or costumes of formal military wear)
-Full kimono, properly worn
Should a lady dislike dresses and prefer men’s wear, they may refer to the gentlemen’s dress code for appropriate attire. Should a gentleman dislike menswear and prefer dresses, they may refer to the ladies’ dress code for appropriate attire. At no point is satire or comedic intent via inappropriate dress allowed.
Please refrain from wearing the following:
-T-Shirts, Jeans, and Shorts
-Tennis Shoes and Flip Flops
-Trench coats or other outerwear
-Wings, Jetpacks, or other large accessories
Weapons of any kind, real or prop, will not be permitted.
Occasionally, we will host a dance with a Formal dress code (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formal_wear). The details of the event will clearly list whether the dress code is Semi-Formal or Formal for every dance.
Previous dance themes include Pretty in Pink, Winter Wonderland, Soda Pop Dance, Crystal Ball at the Georgia Aquarium, Winter Formal, Twilight Masquerade, Cosmic Ball, Black & White Ball, and more! To see photos of past dances, visit the MomoCon Flickr and look for the album for the specific event.
We at MomoCon on Tour host tournaments and analog game days throughout the year! Stay tuned for information on upcoming game days.
MomoCon Game Days are open to all, almost always free to attend, and in conjunction with local stores and venues that are awesome for open play throughout the year, not just on a game day!

We’ll be having board and tabletop game gurus coming out with large collections, RPGers, and more CCGs than you can shake a stick at! We will have instructors on site to teach most games, so even if you are new to something, don’t be afraid!
