[edit] Mascots

The official banner of ZodiaCon, featuring all twelve signs.

Each ZodiaCon year has an animal mascot related to the zodiac sign representing it. The mascots are:

  • 2011: Aries ♈ - Lambert the ram
  • 2012: Taurus ♉ - Vartan the bull
  • 2013: Gemini ♊ - Castor and Pollux, the zebra twins

Although the logo of ZodiaCon 2014 incorporates the astrological symbol for Cancer (the crab), the convention's mascot appears to break the zodiacal pattern of the previous years. The 2014 mascot is Jack O'Hare, a rabbit who is a "typical wild west settler".[3]
