Pre-Registration Closed.

1 May

Pre-Registration is now officially closed. Congratulations to those lucky individuals who managed to send in their pre-registration late last night. I applaud you and it warms my heart to see those payment notification messages in my email inbox. ^-^

For those of you who were hoping that you would be able to register today before the form was taken offline, I’m sorry to say that you are out of lucky because it was just removed. However, you can get a badge at the convention; you will just have to wait inline or come for early badge registration at 9:00AM on Saturday.

Please Remember!: It is required that you show valid identification and your PayPal Receipt when picking up your badge. We will not give you your badge without both!  

On another note, Online Signups for the Moonlight Masquerade will be closing on Saturday May 5th along with Dealer Booth Registration. If you were not able to sign up for the Moonlight Masquerade online, than you will still be able to sign up at the Contest Table the day of OkamiCon. The number of entries for the Masquerade is capped at 25 unless otherwise stated. Special awards will be given to the top three winners of the Masquerade (1st place, 2nd place, and 3rd place).

I will be sending out confirmation emails for Pre-Registrations and Masquerade Entry Forms, so if you haven’t gotten yours yet, it is on its way.

OkamiCon Announces Third Round of Guests!

26 Apr

MESQUITE, NV – With the long awaited event less than a month away, OkamiCon announces the last of two guests that will be joining the multi-genre convention on May 19th, 2012 at the Casablanca Resort and Casino in Mesquite, Nevada.

Anastasia Jablokov
Anastasia Jablokov will be attending OkamiCon 2012 as special cosplay guest and judge for the Moonlight Masque. Also known as MangaFreak150 on the internet, Ana started cosplaying in 2008 and hasn’t stopped since. She is a fan of manga (hence the name) and her favorite animes are Cardcaptor Sakura and Black Rock Shooter. To learn the tricks of the trade in cosplaying, make sure you check out Ana’s panel Cosplaying 101.

Special Guest – Nathan Hanks with Katie and Sophie
When Nathan Hanks ask if you want to see his snake, he means it literary! Nathan Hanks will be joining the OkamiCon 2012 guest lineup along with his beautiful and charming pair of Burmese Pythons, Katie and Sophie.

Nathan has loved snakes his entire life and has owned Pythons for 15 years. While he has owned a variety of other large snakes such as Boa Constrictors, Anacondas and other breeds of Python, the Burmese Python breed will always grip a special place in his heart. Nathan believes that Pythons are one of the most misunderstood animals in the world and enjoys taking opportunities to help separate myth from fact. He does all this with the help of his two lovely ladies: Katie, a 7 year-old, 12 foot long Albino Burmese Python and Sophie, a 9 year-old, 10 foot regular Burmese Python. Of course it is rude to ask a lady her weight, but these gals clock in at about 50 pounds each!

You can find Nathan and his two scaly sweet hearts hanging out in our Outrigger Dealer’s Room. Make sure you stop by throughout the day for his discussions and educational information on Burmese Pythons, as well as hold and have your picture taken with these slithery beauties!
