Since no big updates have been done to this forum, here is some updated info:

1) Robert from Consplayers (http://www.consplayers.com) will have a studio setup to take pictures of cosplayers. The room next to his studio will have changing rooms and a repair station (so you cosplayers don't have to wear your costumes while you drive). I am also going to pitch a bag check-in, so you guys don't have to haul around your street clothes while you cosplay. This is not definite but I am going to check out any liability problems, probably just need to have a waiver signed.

2) A convention schedule has been posted. This includes many panels we are doing as well as times for animes and times for our events like Masquerade. Click here (http://www.mikomicon.com/Schedule.php) for the main convention schedule so far.

3) We have a bunch of guest which include Kyle Herbert, Phillip Wilburn, Johnny Yong Bosch, Zarah Little, Spike Spencer, Michelle Ruff, Stephanie Sheh, Jack O'Halloran, Cliff Simon, and Dr. Aki Hirota. We are still working on a few more so check back to our website.

4) Our weapons policy is posted in our "Rules and Policy" found here (http://www.mikomicon.com/Policy.php). We are in talk with the campus police make them aware of the convention that will be going on. This is so they know that when a cosplayer is running around with a giant Inu Yasha sword, they should just ignore it.

5) Our exhibitors hall information has been posted here (http://www.mikomicon.com/ExhibitHall.php). This includes many of our vendors and vender descriptions. There are a couple dealers that deal in cosplay merchandise so keep your eyes open.

6) The masq rules and sign ups have been open for some time now. We have announced that our performance judges are Pikmin Link from Northern California, Ale-Chan from Mexico, and Chichiri no Aijin from Sothern California. Check out the rules, the sign ups and the bios here (http://www.mikomicon.com/ContestMasquerade.php).

7) The Official Gatherings pages has been created. The gatherings are created by the cosplayers. The cosplayers will then notify the Masquerade Coordinator who will post it on the MikomiCon Website. This allows us to download the database and include it in our programming guide so that everyone will have a copy of the gatherings and will know where they are. You can contact the Masquerade Coordinator here (masq@mikomicon.com).

8) We have little banners for you guys to insert into your signatures. We provide the HTML code and you can find it here (http://www.mikomicon.com/PubFlyer.php). Help us spread the word of the newest convention.

9) Online Registration has also been open for a period of time. You can lock in your pre-reg rate now and only pay $30 for the full convention. If you have any questions, contact registration here (Registration@mikomicon.com).

10) Contact information has been updated including information for those of you who want to volunteer. You can get in touch with anyone of our staff on this page (http://www.mikomicon.com/ContactUs.php).

Thanks for all your help. If you have any questions, either post it here or contact out of our staff here (http://www.mikomicon.com/ContactUs.php).

The contest has extended to September 9th 11:59 PM because of some problems and I was out of commission for a while. Email me at agmv@mikomicon.com for more info. The deadline is distant because I wanted to make sure that i could make sure everything was ready for the con (I'm still inschool like a lot of people so time is limited)

As far as location, MikomiCon is located in Southern California in Los Angeles County.

Check out our booth at Ani-Magic if your going to that convention.

Just when does pre-reg end? There's no date to let a person know. I can only make it one day but I might not...$30 for one day for a new con?!?!? That's a lot of money...considering that's the same price if I pre-reg for all three days. It sounds like a nice con to go to, but not for a poor college student ^^'

I got a free Full Con pass at Anime Expo for winning some Console Debate thing, but unfortunately I can't go. My gf is going, I'd be willing to sell it for 20-25 (full pass is 30) if anyone is interested, she can give it to you in person or I can mail it out if you're in SoCal (will Priority Mail it) so it arrives before the con. IM me at HylianTSA if you're interested.

Less than 24 hours before the pre-reg rates close.

Go to the website http://www.mikomicon.com and lock in that $30 full con pass.

Also, for those in attendance, check the website for importants information. this has been posted on the welcome page and contains information on parking, registration, and weapons/prop check in.

Also, unfortunately, we have decided to remove the Bag check for the public. We are sorry but people will have to store their street clothes in their cars. The Changing Rooms are still going to be active though look forward to that. Those will be located in the activities room 1 and Robert from consplayers will be have hi studio in activities room 2. Check the convention area map on the website.

Thanks Everyone

I was able to grab some snaps of you when you were doing the intro music before the band (earshine?), but no Rave or Rum Party pix. I packed the camera away and brought out the dancing shoes instead.

Having some CF card issues right now, so my pix/web site probably won't be up for a few weeks. I'll post a link here when it is tho. Laters...
