Developers Dairy – August 2012

Hey everyone!
If you have been on our website recently (www.animesg.net) you may have noticed that everything has been updated and the layout is now featuring a completely new design. For those who are interested, here is a list of all the changes made:

Design & Layout

  • Lighter color scheme implemented
  • All graphics change to follow “Ink Splat” design
  • Menu relocated to the side bar
  • Mouse over on link effect
  • Social Media buttons added under side bar menu

Content

  • Special Programing Page added
    • This page will feature special programing such as video game tournaments, demos, and other notable activities.
  • Volunteers Page Removed
  • Schedule Page updated (Includes Programing Schedule and Screening Schedule)
  • Masquerade Page Updated (Includes Online Masquerade Registration)
  • Contact Us form changed so that people may submit questions/comments for OkamiCorner via email

Other Notes

  • Twitter Button on side bar leads to OkamiCon Twitter instead of Anime SG. However, Anime SG is still streamed to the front page until we officially change over to OkamiCon Utah.
  • Advertising Link for some reason will not open in new tab in Fire Fox. The issue is currently being looked into. You may still open it in a new tab manually in Fire Fox and it has no problems opening in Internet Explorer.
  • Masquerade Online signups have been extended until September 15th. You can still always sign up at the convention as always.

 

 

 

Fate of Anime SG Mascots Answered!

Some of you guys have been wondering about the fate of our beloved Anime St. George Mascots as we make the transition to OkamiCon Utah. Wait no further! That question has been answered on this weeks episode of OkamiCorner!

 

Stay tune because every new episode of OkamiCorner is going to be posted on our blog from now on! 😀

 

The Best Is Yet To Come

Hey Everyone! Long time no update!

Now that OkamiCon 2012 is finished, things are going to start jumping for Anime St. George soon. Unlike the last three years, we are going to try something a little different this year. New setup, new activities and more. While I am not one to tip my hand right away (and I just love teasing you guys!) all of these is going to be a prelude to something totally epic awesome that will soon be in store for Anime SG. While I may let you guys know a head of time here on the blog and on other social media, the official announcement will not be made until the convention.

But just to tease you all the same…here are some hints!

-Anime SG is evolving starting next year.
-This has something to do with the growing success of OkamiCon.
-It is bigger than a bread box.

If you think you can figure it out with just those three hints, please feel free to comment. If not, stay tune for some more teasers for what is to come!

Dealer and Artist Registration Now Open!

Sorry for the late post. I have been under the weather so I didn’t get to it yesterday and so here it is today.

Dealer and Artist Registration for Anime St. George 2012 is now open!

Last year we sold out our dealer//artist spaces before July which was a new record! We even had people fighting and begging for what little space we could possibly offer them and because of this, we even put a few people out in the lobby. This year is expected to be just as busy so we are going to bring  back our Lobby Booths because of popular demand!

If you are interested in registering for a Dealer or Artist booth for Anime SG 2012, then get them while you can!

Booth Info:
A 10’x10′ Booth will include 1 Table, 2 Chairs and Table Covering.
A 10’x20′ Booth will include 2 Tables and 2 Additional Chairs (If desired) and Table Coverings.
An 8’x8′ Lobby Exclusive Booth is Located In The Convention Lobby and will include 1 Table, 2 Chairs and Table Covering.
All Booths Include: 2 Convention Passes, Temporary Utah Sales Tax License, Anime St. George Exhibitor Packet.

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!
