Advocating for creative communities and family friendly events
Taikai Corporation started as a humble high school project by two seniors in 2015, Taikai Corporation has evolved in 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the backing of many corporate and local businesses. Our mission is to provide education of global pop culture, artistry, gaming, and costumery in a safe and socially engaging environment.
We accomplish this through hobby conventions held throughout the year as well as discounted and free workshops for people to learn about various hobbies and fandoms through our passionate volunteers. We are constantly adding new events for the community to engage and learn for each other.
Our founding event, Taikai Convention beginning in 2015 as a place for people with interest in Asian artistry and animation to meet in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Now it is a cultivation for pop culture in all mediums!

Princesses of Alaska
The Princesses of Alaska began as a grassroots organization of cosplayers and costume enthusiasts who would meet up around Anchorage dressed as popular media characters. Throughout the years they’ve grown and have hosted events and volunteered their services to other organizations looking for a bit of princess magic! Their principal purpose is to bring joy and magic to the Alaskan children and children-at-heart by bringing the characters they love and adore to life.
