Soy-con is having it's 4th annual cosplay gathering in July, with Anime Midwest the next weekend.

Anime World Chicago & Ramencon are about 1-1/2 hrs apart from eachother on the same weekend in August. (Which is more impressive than the 2-hrs apart on the same weekend that Kuzuricon and Anime Detroit had in 2009.)

I believe Kollision kon had its first show last November, meaning Chicago area is getting 4 brand new anime conventions in less than a year.

I'll see what I can do about getting up to Anime Midwest, possibly, although next month is super-short notice. (I'll be in Cincinnati during the 2-fer in August, so I guess I don't have to pick)

If you buy it early its $25 for a full weekend. Otherwise it will be $35 for the whole weekened. I think they only sell individual days at the door, but im not 100% sure. Still its pretty cheap.

Awesome! Also - everyone should register soon if they want to make the $25 price! :) The more people who register early, the better we can make the con!

Just a thought, has someone posted information about the con on other anime forums( I.E: Animenewsnetwork, Funimation,etc.) or just here?

Yeah I would, and I emailed the head of registration (Molly, who sends the newsletters :D) and she said to also bring a valid ID too. I'd bring confirmation as well. Can't be too careful, since we don't know how it works yet.

She's just the head of communications/external relations, I'm more the head of registration, lol. The most important thing to bring is either your ID or your confirmation email. Bringing both can't hurt. If you've paid, we WILL find your badge for you, XD.
