While it is always best to believe in oneself, a little help from others can be a great blessing.

Uncle Iroh

Star Eyed Events was formed at the inception of Empire City Con: A Steven Universe fan convention in 2018. After two wonderful years and the finale of the show it was based on, the con had its final event in 2021. 

Mayor K-K Bracken has been organizing fan cons since 2015, and is so excited to bring this new project to the world!

The Avatar fandom is very special and CabbageCon strives to create a space as warm, welcoming, inclusive, and accessible as the show it is based on.

Bianca Blu Lazuli!

Made by Blue Diamond to assist in Cosplay/Costumed Events all over the Continental US, Bianca Blu started as an information gatherer; going to conventions to find the best/worst aspects of this exclusive community, and report them to Homeworld. After just a few short years, they found themselves attached to humanity; the art, the songs, the sense of community; and decided to loan their experience to the one-of-a-kind Gem of a Convention: Empire City Con!! An expert on information systems, crowd control, and public service, Blu is always there to assist anyone, gem or human!

It’s what they were made for!
