MiniComi 2017 was a big success! Thank you to everyone who tabled, attended, and helped out – the event would not have been possible without you.

MiniComi kicked off with a great start – set up and check-ins were smooth, and the weather was thankfully kind to us.


Artists really stepped it up this year with a brilliant variety of items for sale, making a walk down the aisles filled with surprises. Not only were there countless beautiful prints of all styles, artists even brought comics, candles, homemade soap, crochet plushies, tea, accessories, and ice cream sandwiches.

Check out the slideshow below for pictures of some of our talented artists (info about them can be found here):

Meanwhile, UBC Beads and Crafts hosted a very popular free charm-making activity. A full photo album of charms made at their table can be found here.


A couple of our other community partners also showed up at the event. Thanks UBC Anime Club, SFU Summerfest, and Anime Evolution for joining in on the fun!



We caught up with a couple of impressive cosplayers as well. See the gallery below:

The competition for our draw prizes was fierce, but three lucky winners walked away smiling today. Thank you everyone for participating!
