Spooky OkamiCon Updates

Hey Everyone! Happy National Cosplayers Day…or in laymen turns…Happy Halloween!

My computer is now repaired and things are going to start hopping as we wrap up the month of October and start moving closer to the Holidays. A lot more updates for OkamiCon are going to start coming sooner and closer together. Pre-Registration will be opening tomorrow and even though, we don’t have much updated as far as events and programing go, that will all be changing.

Here are some things you can look forward too:
-Table Top Gaming and Tournaments (TCG) (Details coming soon)
-Day Long and Convention Wide Contests
-Staff Cosplay Theme
-Reintroduction of Online Masquerade Registration
-Art Contest
-Much More!

Online Masquerade Registration
One particular thing I would like to touch note on (I can’t remember if I have already or not), is that we will be bringing back Online Masquerade Registration for both OkamiCon and Anime SG 2012. Many more people seem to actively participate in the Masquerade after they have already registered then they do simply coming to the convention and signing up. Everything will be done from an online form which you can fill out and it will be emailed to us. All you have to do then is check in at the Masquerade Desk on the day of the event and you are good to go!

Please expect Masquerade Registration to be open around February. An official announcement will be made at that time.

Screening Suggestions
While I will not be submitting the requests for screening permissions until January, I would love to here your suggestions on what FUNimation Entertainment programing we should be showing in our screening room. Tell us and you just might see it there!

OkamiCon Cover Art Contest
One of the features we will be launching this year for OkamiCon is a Cover Art Contest which will start in January. This contest will be for armature and professional artists alike. You all be encouraged to submit your own artistic interpretation and rendition of the OkamiCon Wolf and Moon Logo. One lucky entry will then be chosen to be printed as the OkamiCon 2012 Program Cover Art. This is a wonderful opportunity to get your artistic name out there! Not to mention it will look good in your portfolio. 😉

I hope this will give you all a little something to chew on over the Halloween Day. Enjoy!
