Cozy Con 2023 Date Set

🦥 SEPTEMBER 2022 RECAP

This is your last chance to get the @Sept 2022 Attendee role and get your free goodies at ✨free-attendee-swag as the reaction to get the role will be removed tomorrow morning, ~10am PDT.

A big thank you to @everyone who came out to the event! We wouldn’t be able to run without interested folks coming to hang out. We hope you had a good time and we can’t wait to see you again on the 3rd weekend of May, 2023!

🔹 If you missed opening/closing/bloopers etc https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM-8h8Qev6S5q2F_Q1EMGAQ 

🔸 More videos will get uploaded as we’re able to edit out panels and get them up. Give us a follow for notifications & help us reach a unique channel URL!

Feedback form for everyone! Panelists/DJs, Vendors/Vendor Assistants, Attendees, Staff, etc. Please take a few moments to fill this out so we can improve the event in the future. https://form.jotform.com/222626401693252 

We wouldn’t have all the amazing content we have, if it weren’t for the Vendors, Panelists, and DJs! Be sure to check out their sites and social media.

🔹 Panelists & DJ contacts can be found on their events listings at https://cozycononline.com/#events (Some were missing and have been added! All should be there.)

🔹 Vendors can be found year round at https://cozycononline.com/#vendors or 🎨vendor-map in our Discord.

We couldn’t have put this all on without our Volunteers! They do a lot more than you may see from the surface to make things run as smoothly as they can! Check them out at https://cozycononline.com/#volunteer 

🔹 We can always use more help so if you’re interested, please fill out https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSed5LJdjPSbfUjfAzES5cUyZgTF4LsIe_2IOj7EY1DTPWzmxA/viewform (And forward any folks you know who might be interested! Even a few hours here and there is helpful.)

A big thank you to our Donors, 18+ tier and those who purchased from our con-store! You folks really make it possible for us to financially run our future events. There are a lot of overhead costs to upkeep things we need to run, so those $5 donations/badge purchases are a lot more helpful than you may think, so thank you~

🔹 Personalized badges, Donations, 18+ role and Sponsor tier available until Sep 25th, at which time our reg will go down while we shuffle some things around. (We will also be making our sponsor clothing orders at this time.) https://cozycononline.com/#reg 

🔹 Con Store themed items will remain up until after our next event but item stock can fluctuate in these trying times so grab what you want sooner rather than later. https://store.cozycononline.com/ 

🔹 If you’d prefer not to use the reg system to donate, we have a Ko-fi! https://ko-fi.com/cozycononline

🔹 Peak Discord members: 956 (lots more unique users in/out over the weekend)

🔹 Sept 2022 Attendee Swag pickup: 216

🔹 Physical merch will be organised and sent out as soon as we can. Some merch we have on hand already so those will get sent out ASAP. Sponsor tier items will be ordered ASAP but may take 4 weeks to arrive to us, then we have to package them before sending them out. Thank you for your patience!

💖 We’re so thankful to all of you for being a part of this community and event, and we hope to see you again on the 3rd weekend of May, 2023.
