Lutavia Cosplay – Local Cosplay Spotlight Guest Winner

Lutavia Cosplay

Lutavia Cosplay

is our second ever Local Cosplay Spotlight Winner.
Lutavia discovered cosplay around 13-14 but like so many of us life distractions put cosplay on the back burner. Though she kept going to cons, school overwhelmed her, and it wasn’t until college that her love of cosplay was revitalized. It started out building props on her apartment table–putting electronics together for a Breath of the Wild sheikah slate and Guardian Sword, using tutorials from Adafruit, a site she was familiar with in school. When she brought it to a convention for the first time and saw a teenager examining it in awe and was grinning with pride, she realized something: she liked wearing cosplays, but adored building them. And when began helping others build a Guardian Sword like hers, showing them the resources to use, she began to realize she adored teaching too. Fast forward to today: now she absolutely loves cosplaying and building stuff as well as showing other people, and hopefully sparking some joy and confidence in them to build something too!

How Guests Work at Delta H Con

News Release 4/19/2021

Hello family,

It has been some time since we’ve written to you and even longer since we’ve seen each other. Just last month we were set to announce guests and post our kick off message for the 2021 convention when we, like you, heard Comicpalooza was moving from May to the same weekend as Delta H, July 16-18, 2021. So we put our kick off on hold as we explored options for possibly moving Delta H. We found our hotel didn’t have any available dates that wouldn’t have put us moving to weekends already taken by other anime groups. Some run by folks we know and work closely with. We are choosing to keep the July 16-18, 2021 weekend so we don’t put our friends in the same unenviable position as we find ourselves in. We understand being on the same weekend as Comicpalooza will have some of you facing the choice of join us or roam around CP. We certainly hope you will join us as our 3 day weekend pass costs less than a single day at CP but we totally understand and love you no matter which you chose to attend.
Today we are restarting our kick off for Delta H Con July 16-18, 2021! Let the fun for Delta H Con-tagion begin! We look forward to seeing your awesome quarantine creations at the cosplay contest, the Zombie Prom, or just shambling down the hall!
For your safety we, like many other businesses in the city, have made the Houston Clean Pledge. In conjunction with the Houston Westchase Marriott we have added cleaning procedures to our event space. We are also reducing the total number of panel rooms so we can expand their size while reducing the number of people they seat to allow for social distancing. Masks will also be required. We are following current CDC guidance and keeping track of local COVID-19 levels. We have more details on our website.

If you already have a pass for Delta H 2021 and can’t attend we will be happy to roll them to 2022 which is happening July 15-17, 2022.

Delta H Con COVID-19 Protocols

What do the Attendees have to do?

  • Attendees MUST wear face coverings when in any convention space.
  • Masks may be removed briefly for photos at the Celebrity Guests’ discretion for table selfies.
  • Masks are not required outdoors, though we encourage attendees to continue to wear them. The CDC has recently stated that the chances of the infection spreading outside are very low.
  • Attendees should practice social distancing whenever possible
  • Look for queue markings and signage to ensure proper social distancing around the convention floor
  • Stay home if you are sick or have been around someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 in the 14 days preceding the convention.
  • It is highly recommended that all attendees have their COVID-19 vaccination. CDC guidance say un-vaccinated people should not gather in larger group or groups of mixed households.

What is the Con doing for the attendees?

  • Delta H staff and volunteers are required to wear face masks at the convention
  • Panel rooms and main events rooms capacities have been dropped to 50%
  • Video game consoles will be wiped down between each usage
  • Staff who have been exposed to COVID-19 up to 14 days prior to Delta H will not be present
  • Staff who show any symptoms of COVID-19 will be asked to go home and self-quarantine
  • Staff are required to perform temperature checks each day before working the convention
  • Dealer Room/Artist Alley population will be restricted to enable social distancing

What is the hotel doing?

  • Hotel staff is required to wear face coverings and gloves
  • Bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized every 90 minutes
  • Tables and chairs inside conference rooms will be sanitized once per day at the end of the event day
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided for conference rooms, lobby area, and outside restrooms

At Delta H Con, the safety of our attendees, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. Holding a convention during the COVID-19 pandemic is not ours, nor anybody’s preference. These protocols have been developed from guidelines put out by the CDC, government guidelines, and the policies of the Houston Marriott Westchase. We appreciate your patience and participation in helping us keep this event as safe as possible during this time.

You may reference the guidelines these protocols were based on [HERE].
