Meet the Krakens!

Hello! I’m Kiki, the mascot for CaperCon!
I have eight arms that represent the different aspects of a fan convention, like sci-fi and fantasy, or panels and cosplay! I am a really great multi-tasker, just like CaperCon! Some of my skills include expert level DDR, acting (you may have spotted me in a few movies), and hugging, because who doesn’t need one of those sometimes, right?
My pronouns are She/Her and my favourite colours are blue and purple! I can also walk on land and swim in the sea, making Cape Breton Island the perfect place for me! Well, that and CaperCon of course! See you there!

Greetings, I am K.O.K.O. I was the mascot for 2020’s Virtual Con!

Greetings, My name is Kilobyte Output Kilohertz Opacity but you can just call me K.O.K.O. for short. I am Kiki’s cousin. I am all about everything tech, video games, computer games, video chats, smartphones, social media– you name it! OH! Did you know that I am also an android. When Kiki told me that CaperCon needed a mascot for virtual con, I asked her if I could stick around!

See you at CaperCon!
