I just received this from Becca Norman at Nan Desu Kon! What a great idea, I hope everyone in the area can make it! :)


Nan Desu Kan and Rock Island, with The Wizardís Chest,
present the first-ever Nan Desu Kan pre-con CosPlay
Dance Party at Rock Island Night Club in LoDo!

Dateline: August 8th, 2004, 8:00 p.m.
Rock Island, one of Denverís oldest and greatest
alternative dance venues, will host a Gothic/Anime
costume fashion fiesta in concert with Nan Desu Kan,
the Rocky Mountain Anime Convention, and local costume
resource The Wizardsí Chest.

Slated for five weeks before the con and ramping up to
our annual NDK excitement, the night should give you a
great chance to try on your Gothic and Lolita style,
or any anime series costume, to make an appearance on
stage and on the dance floor at Rock Island, backed by
the sounds of the best Goth night this city has seen!
The schedule includes an open-entrance fashion show
with audience awards (make sure to arrive early to
sign up!), martial arts dance performance by
underground dance legend A. Wilder, and giveaways of
free tickets to the Cure and the Colorado Balletís
upcoming production of Dracula as well as passes to
Nan Desu Kan, and a dance floor large enough to
satisfy everyone who wishes for just a little more
space to shine!

The event is open to anyone ages 18 and over (ID
required) and will run up to 1 a.m. with a cover of
only $3 for Rock Island entrance at the door (all
proceeds from door fees go to Rock Island). Alcohol
