Lead Mascot Cat

One of the founding members of KuroNekoCon, Tsuki has been serving as the face of the convention since the first year in 2009, and she loves to spend all year working to make KuroNekoCon the best it can possibly be. After all, what would “KuroNekoCon” be without our beloved black cat?

About Tsuki: Loves traditional Japanese fashion, spends too much time on facebook, lots of cat naps, prefers the manga.

Separated at birth, Tsuki’s twin brother Hoshi found his way back to Tsuki at OutSpokane Pride Festival in 2018 where he could first be seen on the Trans Pride buttons. He officially joined KuroNekoCon at the 2019 convention, where he founded the Find Hoshi scavenger hunt.

About Hoshi: J-Fashion Enthusiast, takes tons of instagram photos, little ball of energy, only watches subs.
