Welcome to the home of NOMU Con.
NOMU con is a joint venture of two groups, Anime BUMU and Nerd of the day aka NOTD. We combined NOTD and BUMU and That is where we get our name. Both groups respectively have been involved in the pop culture convention community on a national level for the past decade in a variety of ways. We have worked with Cosplayers, podcasters, authors, photographers, gamers, streamers, and more and the reason is simple... passion. We are passionate about the things that you are passionate about.
We have covered Conventions that have less than 200 attendees and events with more than 200,000 attendees but our home town is Phoenix AZ where we have seen many members of our community affected in a large variety of ways due to COVID. Some are losing out on essential income made from selling their art and craftwork in artist alley, some vendors did the hard word of sourcing and purchasing loads of great merch for con-goers to and then never got a chance to bring it to market and this isn't even mentioning the mental price many of us pay as our yearly events are the way we not only socialize but our mental and emotional outlets. Honestly, a lot of us plan our years around our favorite events and when those aren't available we all suffer in some way.
Over the summer we saw some of the largest conventions in America go online which was a great thing to see but the one issue was that as the largest conventions in America it was only big-name celebrities and panelists that got presented, but what about the rest of us?
This is where NOMU con comes in. None of us know for sure what 2021 will be like but we do know that we all need a place and an event that can't be called or canceled.
On September 25th and 26th 2021, we will be streaming a convention that was not adapted to online but designed from the ground up to be an online convention. We will have online cosplay meetups, streamed panels from panelists all over the country, vendors and artists displaying their work and great products, and more.
Attendance is free and there is no cost to sign up as an artist, panelist, or vendor. This is all done completely free because we love our community and want to do anything we can to help. If you or someone you know is interested in being a panelist, or a vendor or artist please direct them to our application section to apply.
We hope to see you all in September, please connect with us on Facebook Instagram, and Twitter for unto date information on the con.
