Event Updates and Pre-Registration Now Open!

Hey guys!

After a slight delay to that nasty flu bug that has been going around, Pre-Registration opened a little later than previously announced (which was Jan 15th) but it is now open and ready to go!

May 17th – Day One
———————————————–
Early Registration & Badge Pickup: 10:00AM – 11:00AM
Event Time: 11:00AM – 5:00PM
Single Day Pre-Registration: $20.00
Single Day At Door:
$25.00

May 18th – Day Two
———————————————–
Early Registration & Badge Pickup: 10:00AM – 11:00AM
Event Time: 11:00AM – 8:00PM

With pre-registration, you will be able to buy either the Single Day Pass (good for one day of your choice) or Double Day Pass (good for the whole weekend.) Due to the large amount of pre-registration we tend to get and because we are going two days this year, we will not  be doing customizable badges. 

Event Updates

Our special event programing page has been updated with information for the KOMA Gaming Tournament. This year they will be holding both a free-to-play tournament as well as a paid-to-play tournament. The PTP tournament will involve a cash prize so it will be worth it. Please see our webpage for details which will also link to their facebook page which has the current gaming roster.

Vendor Registration

Starting on Monday (or sooner if I get to it), I will be sending out emails to all previous vendors regarding participating in this year’s Double Vendor Rooms. We still have plenty of spaces available so if you are interested, get in early for prime spacing in or Falcon East Room.

A 10’x20′ Booth will include 2 Tables and 2 Additional Chairs (If desired) and Table Coverings.

Starting The New Year – Anime SG Will All Be OkamiCon

This is now official notice as to not to confuse anyone in the very near future: Starting January 1st, 2013, the URL for Anime St. George webpage and blog (www.animesg.net and http://www.animesg.com respectively) will no longer be functional. After that date, you will need to go to the main OkamiCon Webpage (www.okamicon.com) for both OkamiCon Utah and OkamiCon Nevada information, registration, etc. Both pages for Utah and Nevada are separated so simply click the link on the splash page for the one you wish to visit.

That also being sad, all of our other social media accounts for Anime SG are also going to be deleted or closed starting the first of the year. This includes the ASG WordPress Blog, Facebook and Twitter. I have tried to encourage everyone to follow our new social media pages for OkamiCon and post announcements that the others will be closing, however, people still insist on liking, following or subscribing to ones that are no longer updated.

If you have not yet liked the new OkamiCon Facebook or Twitter, you can do so by following the little feeds here on the main page of this blog (OkamiCon Blog) or by the feeds from the OkamiCon Webpage.

Also, for those who are curious, the photos from the Anime St. George Facebook Albums have all been moved over to OkamiCon so please feel free to go and re-tag yourself or your friends.

Masquerade Fail

Hey everyone!

Lately I have been wondering “Hmmm…I wonder why no one has signed up for the Masquerade at Anime St. George 2012?” Then it occurred to me to check and actually see if the form was up…at lol and behold, it wasn’t.

So very sorry about that. I thought I had put it online but seems that I was thinking about the OTHER Masquerade form which really doesn’t apply here. All the same, the form will be put online with the new updates that are coming shortly and I will make sure to give you happy cosplayers out there plenty of time to make your submissions. Good thing the convention isn’t until the end of September eh? Heheheh *nervous laugh*.

But for those of you who have been thinking about entering the Masquerade, you really should. We are implementing a new voting system as well as have all the kinks worked out with our sound system. Now you will be able to bring in a CD or flash drive with your music and we will be able to plug it right!

Stay tune! The form will be up soon on a spiffy new webpage! 😀

Dealer Spaces Sold Out!

It is now official! All eight  dealer spaces for Anime St. George 2011 have officially been sold out!

Space was in such a large demand this year that we literally had people fighting over who would the last available space  in the dealer’s room, resulting in a race against the clock to see who would get there first. In the end, Kimber Rose swooped in and claimed the final available spot, making this her third consecutive year gracing our Dealer’s Room and Artist’s alley. Even after all that, we still had an artist who was more then happy to accept a smaller space out in the lobby and paid cash just to guarantee her spot on our Exhibitor’s List. Here is who you can look forward to seeing for this year’s Anime SG 2011:

Booth 1: Cherry Limeaid*
Booth 2: Shark Robot // SnafuComics.com
Booth 3: Shark Robot // SnafuComics.com
Booth 4: Y.A.O.I
Booth 5: Art by Kimber Rose
Booth 6: Hansha Studios
Booth 7: Gravity Doll
Booth 8: Scuttlebutt Ink
Booth 9: Anime Friendly (Located in Lobby)

*The Members of Cherry Limeaid are also our Masquerade Team again this year. Please go to their booth to sign up for the Phantom Masque and Cosplay Contest.

For those who are still looking towards selling their wares but were unable to make snag their booth at Anime St. George 2011, Dealer and Artists Spaces for Anime Bonanza 2011 are still available until July 16th.

Online Masquerade Registration

Last year for Anime SG, I launched an experiment for a system that would allow attendees register for the Cosplay Masquerade online months before the event. While this system worked well when used for a single convention (and was planning to launch it for Anime Bonanza as well), but have found it difficult and cumbersome when more then one convention is put into the pot. Most of these problems arise from the fact that because I have to travel for Bonanza and will be on the road days before the event, I cannot organize, print and maintain the current registration list for attendees to either con.

As a result, online Masquerade Registration for both Anime St. George and Anime Bonanza have been suspended indefinably. However, you can still sign up for the Masquerade at the Cosplay Sign Up Table at both conventions respectively. Entry is first come first serve and there are limited spaces so make sure you sign up early in the morning to get a spot.

I may resume online Masquerade Registration again in the future when I can design and implement a better   system for it. Until then, I apologize to anyone who was waiting for the Masque Registration to open and I thank you for your understanding.
