We’re thrilled to announce Delta H Con 2017: Goblins and Monsters, where we will be celebrating our 10th anniversary of bringing anime and gaming to Houston! This year’s theme is “Goblins and Monsters,” and we’re focusing on bringing in celebrity talent that has created some of the best villain voices and brought to life the darker side of the shows we love, because after all, what is a HERO without a VILLAIN?
Delta H Convention will happen July 14-16, 2017 at the Marriott Westchase, 2900 Briarpark Drive, Houston, Texas 77042. The doors open at 10am on Friday and will have continuous events and activities until Sunday at 6pm. We have over 50,000 square feet of activities, vendors, and room to hang out and chill with your friends. We have an awesome room rate at the hotel for those of you looking to get some sleep or needing a place to swap out costumes, because who can choose just one?
We’ll kick off Friday with Steampunk- focused events, climaxing with our two fashion shows, the Galaxy Lolita Fashion Show and the HCC Fashion Show, and closing with the Steampunk Ball!
Saturday will bring more panels, games, and workshops as well as the Big Cosplay Contest. Bring that outfit you’ve been working on for so long, and strut your stuff on the main stage for trophies and bragging rights. Saturday will close out with our big formal event, Sarah’s Masquerade Ball – just watch out for the goblins!
Sunday will start off at a slower pace with our VIP Gold Pass Breakfast with Celebrities, but gear up quickly as folks wake from the late night festivities. Hear your favorite celebrity speak on far-ranging topics, and ask them questions about your most favorite show they were in.
Our celebrity guests include Tiffany Grant (Aska from Evangalion), Kirby Morrow (Teru Mikami from Death Note), John Swasey (Daisuke Aramaki from Ghost in the Shell), Chuck Huber (Android 17 and Pilaf from Dragon Ball), and Monica Rial (Bulma from Dragon Ball and Stocking from Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt). There are anime viewing rooms, panels, workshops, old and new console gaming, PC gaming, and even tabletop gaming! We have a manga library open during the day, so you can sit and relax, take a moment to catch your breath, and read a volume or two of a new series! There will even be a Japanese Maid Café to cater to your sweet tooth, and to keep you entertained!
We are excited to bring Warhammer to our Gaming Arena, partnering with Warzone to bring a Houston GT Warhammer 40,000 event to Houston. Hear the clash and the ground rumble as these Aamies collide in Houston’s biggest Warhammer GT event of the year.
Delta H Con is a Houston-based family-friendly event celebrating 10 years of making friends and bringing celebrities from around the world to Houston. We look forward to meeting you, and having you join our family on our journey for the next 10 years!
