You may have seen this Rila cosplayer before at other cons. This mystery cosplayer will be at Viencon Summer Festival. Be sure to snap a pic with the cute bear. The cosplayer will walk around the venue on Saturday (susceptible to change).


FIGURE PHOTOGRAPHY

Posted on: January 19, 2018 at 11:46 pm

We got the question whether figures would be allowed for the cosplay photography competition. The answer was no. Instead, we decided to have a figure photography competition, because figure photography is a fun hobby and shouldn’t be excluded.

What you have to do:
Post the cosplay photo on your instagram account,
Mention @Viencon in the photo description,
And tag it #VienconFigureCompo2018.

The deadline is on Saturday 1 September at 23:59 (11:59PM). It has to be taken at the venue. Only one photo per participant allowed. The photos will be judged by a group of photographers and figure lovers. You get to win a prize. The best or funniest ones will be printed (with your permission) and shown at the next Viencon Summer Festival.

Don’t forget to book as soon as possible! The ticket price includes your weekend ticket of €35 and your cottage starting from €60 for four days!

The Story of Viencon

Posted on: December 31, 2017 at 10:08 pm

The story of Viencon began a few years ago when a friend and I organised a pool party for other friends. This pool party was a fun weekend of (cosplay) photo shooting, relaxing, barbecuing and simply having a good time. Luckily, everyone enjoyed themselves whether they came to photo shoot or to relax.

My friends called this weekend “Viencon” for fun and tagged it on social media as #Viencon. They enjoyed it so much that they asked me when the next “Viencon” would be. Other friends and strangers also seemed to be interested, because they asked me if they could join the next time as well.

So, I started to look at a bigger location for a new pool party. However, it seemed to be impossible to hire a public pool. Then someone pointed me in the direction of Center Parcs. I contacted them and they replied that I could hire the whole resort for an event.

I had the feeling I was offered a unique opportunity. I could organise a pool party everyone could be part of. So, we had the concept and we had the location, but not a name. We’ve tried many names, but ultimately we decided to name our pool party Viencon. Not only because our friends were used to this, but also because “Vien” means complete and happy in Vietnamese. The name coincidentally refers to the fun weekend we had those years ago.

Now enough about the history of Viencon, because soon we will share the dates for and exciting news about the first edition!
