We are happy to announce that SoyCon badges have changed under a new friendly prices. We feel the previous prices were a bit much and gave it with such thought. With many events and conventions happening over the summer, as well as being aware of everyone's spending habits during this time, we believe cutting the cost of our event will help bring more interest without breaking the bank.

For everyone who had pre-registered for SoyCon on Eventbrite, you will all recieve a partial refund in the near future as well as our special reduced price only exclusive to those members only. Keep an eye on your Eventbrite account for your partial refund and updated information on your pre-registration. If you have any questions, contact us at

Welcome everyone! It is our pleasure to introduce all of you our new website for the 10th Anniversary of SoyCon! We are happy to bring forth one of the longest running cosplay events in the Midwest. This site is your portal of information to our event.

For 10 years, we celebrated our cherished fandom and bring together a community to have a weekend full of entertaining times and amazing moments. We ran photoshoots, picnics, events, dances, and more.

We are also here to announce that this is the final year of SoyCon. Times have changed, fans have come and gone, and some must end one journey to start another. On July 22nd, you are invited to join us one last time and celebrate our biggest event we’ve ever hosted at Venue 929 in Schaumburg, IL!

Pre-registration for SoyCon is now live on Eventbrite. Head on over to our Attendee Registration page and let’s do this one last time!
