AnimeSydney Christmas Party 2016


When: Friday 2nd December, 6pm-10:00pm
Where: The Underground UTS
Dress: Christmas-themed, Cosplay, or Smart Casual
Tickets: Contact this page, or any exec of an AnimeSydney affliated club – $15 presale, $20 at the door

Ho ho ho~ Christmas has arrived once again, and once again we invite you to our Christmas Party!! It’ll at the Underground, the UTS campus bar, on the 2nd December at 6pm. It’s an open event, for all ages, and members and non-members alike, so please feel free to invite all your friends and that strange second cousin twice removed that you met that one time.

There’ll be lots of games and activities to keep you busy – here’s just a quick breakdown of what we’ll have going on:

Brush up on your anime knowledge for our no-holds-barred trivia challenge! Only one team can win this brutal match of wits, and claim the glory (and the prizes, but mostly the glory). Become a master of knowing useless facts that will never help you, and make sure to spread your knowledge around different genres, not just the ~big 4~

Pour your blood, sweat and tears into training so you can SLEIGH in our Pokemon tournament (I am so sorry for that pun). There’ll be more than just that though – we’ll have board games, space for TCG and maybe even a cheeky Weiss Schwarz tournament (that’s not really a maybe). Again, we’ve got a whole sack of goodies to give away so win, win, win!

In the spirit of AnimeSydney events, we encourage you to unleash your inner cosplayer and dress up. You can go the conventional route and do a character – or you can do an original Christmas co-ord! If you’re really dedicated, you could even do a Christmas version of your favourite character! There’ll be prizes for the best dressed so style your heart out! That said, if you’re just looking for a chill night, you’re welcome in just casual clothes.

Given the nature of the season, we thought we’d instigate a little bit of weeb love with some Secret Santa. If you have some merch you don’t really want, or even if you’re just feeling really generous, bring a gift to our Secret Santa table and walk away with another mystery gift from someone else. Please note the minimum expected value is $10, so no trading a pair of chopsticks from Daiso for a ~real~ gift.

We’ll also have a rock-out session with our fantastic AnimeSydney band, UNIKON, so get your vocal cords ready to sing along, and your ears ready to listen nice and good. This’ll be one of your last chances to catch this talented crowd in 2016, so if you’ve missed them, now’s your chance to find out how great these guys really are!

Tickets can be bought at the presale price at any event for your club, or by contacting any exec. Get in fast, because if you miss these tickets, you may run out of luck buying at the door – and you’ll have to pay more to boot.

We hope to see you all there to send off yet another great year of AnimeSydney activities~~
