Thank you all for making LTU Expo 2019 a year to remember. This year was very successful, and we were happy to make it a fun event for all. However, with a heavy heart, we are officially disbanding as of today and are cancelling the 2020 event. In just a few short years, we have grown so much thanks to you. Our staff, however, are graduating, have full time work, and have mutually decided not to host this event next year due to time constraints and other obligations.

There is a high possibility of hosting a game focused expo in the place of the annual anime/gaming event. If that happens, there will be more details released in the future. However, it will not be under the LTU Expo name.

Again, we’d like to thank you so much for your support for this event! We grew so fast and had an excellent two years together.

HELLO INTERNET! I AM BACK!!!
I am happy to announce that I'll be going to a con this Saturday, LTU Expo 2019! My friend EmCat Cosplay will be hosting it for the second year, and so excited and proud of what she has in store! This is my first con this year and will be cosplaying as Chihaya from Persona 5.

Policies & Guidelines

We had a few questions regarding weapons and props. Here is our policy:

LTU's Campus Safety Department has jurisdiction over whether weapons and props are acceptable. As of 2018, we must comply with a no-weapons policy on campus.

Prohibited weapons include and are not limited to: all swords, axes, hammers, maces, guns, bows, crossbows, whether they are made of foam, wood, plastics, metal, etc (e.g. includes live steel, replica firearms, water guns, airsoft guns, BB guns, lightsabers, foam or thermo/plastic builds, etc).

If LTU Expo Staff or Campus Safety declares an item unacceptable, you must remove it from the event by storing it in your vehicle. If you are unsure of whether or not your weapon or prop will be allowed at the event, feel free to send us an email with a picture of the item in question, and a brief description of the materials it is made from.

All of our policies/guidelines can be viewed here: http://www.ltuexpo.com/policies.html

Let us know if you have any questions! Thanks!

One of our main and highlight events this year is our Indie Game Expo! Leading up to the convention, we wanted to showcase developers who are coming, and show you what you can demo! Our first developer highlight is MageQuit!

Description: MageQuit is a wizard-brawling arena game where up to 10 players use spells and physics to do battle. As a wizard, you are granted a staff with a glowing D20, giving you unique elemental abilities. With every kill, your neckbeard and fame grow. Will you end up as Merlin, or be forever cursed with peach fuzz?

Check them out on Steam(https://store.steampowered.com/app/572220/MageQuit/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/magequitgame?lang=en)

03/06/2019

Returning from last year, our awesome panelist guests FBStudios! The group will be hosting several unique panels - from Vocaloid to Pokemon and more!

Bio: We're a rag-tag group of cosplayers who love hosting panels in our own unique way. Our team has been together since March of 2015, and have since put together over 40 panels for audiences all over the board. We try and create content for a wide range of audiences, from kid-friendly panels to mature discussions on hentai and postfeminist theory. We know not everyone is into fandom culture, and we get that- we have a wide variety of panels, some of which are for fandoms like Homestuck or Pokemon, but some that are more overarching, broad topics related to the cosplay community. We aim to provide every single attendee at our panels with quality content that stays uniform, yet unique, from convention to convention. Just as we as convention goers travel from con-to-con, we know our attendees do to, and try and give them a familiar, yet new feel each time they come to one of our panels. Attendees will never come to a panel this year at LTU and see it the same way we hosted it last year. We try not to lecture on and on, and instead aim to give our perspective on topics and allow for our guests to participate and give their own perspectives as well. Most of all, we want to have fun. Panels aren't interesting if there isn't any fun to be had. We try and put on a bit of a stage appearance for our guests to feel like they're being welcomed into our panel collective family, and hope they'll continue to join us time and time again for new and fun panels. Our team has just recently expanded to 14 full time members including myself, with an auxiliary team located in Florida and Idaho, and our main team in the Midwestern US. Currently we are working with The Five Wits to bring product reviews and tutorials of some of the wigs that they sell.
