Superior Con 2019

Superior Con is a free pop culture convention hosted by an alliance of student organizations at Northern Michigan University! If you like video games, cosplay, cartoons, comics, anime, or any other form of pop-culture art, Superior Con is the place you want to be! Superior Con ran for the first time in 2018, and was a great success. Our growth will be slow, but your organizers will strive every year to make Superior Con the best it can be. As of now, this event is headed by Northern Michigan University’s student organization, Cosplayers Unite. As long as the event is hosted on the campus of NMU, it will remain a free event. Our hopes are that one day, Superior Con will grow enough to move up to a larger venue.​

Youmacon 2018

Youmacon is a popular culture event similar to most “Comic Cons”, however instead of focusing on comic books, Youmacon is a celebration of Japanese popular culture and its influence on our own culture over the past few decades. Common themes throughout the event are Anime (Japanese animation), Video Games, Japanese style artwork and comics, and the rising internet culture influenced by all of the above.

Wearing costumes, or “Cosplay” as it’s known at conventions, is very popular with attendees of Youmacon. It is not uncommon to walk into a pair of Italian plumbers in overalls on the escalator, only to meet someone dressed as Edward Elric or Master Chief from Halo minutes later.
