JAFAX is rapidly approaching, but here is a quick update tonight.
We have added information on Studio Capsule on our Guests page. Our staff are working feverishly to get things in place for the big weekend, so keep dropping by to see information posted as it’s submitted.
Oh, and they sent this excellent photo that demanded to be seen.
Well, we know that our newest guest Yunmao Ayakawa is a fan. Having built a career around and beyond her sensational sense of style and costuming skills, she has gone on to become a pop force to be reckoned with. She will both be here as a guest but also having a hand in some of our events.
You can read more about her in general at her site, find out what she will be doing at JAFAX on our Guests Page. While you are there check out our other currently confirmed guests. Be sure to check back in the coming weeks to see the finalized list.
We have opened up registration for both Fan Panels and Artist Alley registration. Be sure to get your requests in early so we have more time to consider your wonderful art and/or topics. You can find links on their respective pages or here(art) and here(panel). Be sure to read the rules either on their section of the site or on the form before submitting the form.
We posted some info for those who wish to volunteer right here. You will see a link to the volunteer signup form at the bottom. We also have some updated info for anyone who is wanting to sign up for the artist alley. Sign ups will be coming soon enough, but read the guidelines for now.
Greetings from your friendly neighborhood web-admin. We are trying something a bit different this year for our website. With the advent of this Web 2.0 we have been hearing about we thought we should give dynamic content a try. So we launched our new site with some of the older content already added, published a basic version of this years theme, and fiddled with the settings a bit. These are early days mind you, so keep coming back in the next few weeks to see JAFAX.org blossom into something that can best serve the Great Lakes Anime Community.
Our very own Chibi Jon and myself will be making edits and additions first, but then some of our other esteemed board members may try their hand at this internet thing. So I am asking anyone who sees info to add or correct either post it in the forums or email either of us with these requests once the dust has settled.
With another JAFAX behind us and the dust starting to settle, we wanted to thank everyone for another great event. Our guests, vendors, volunteers and attendees all made this an awesome event. As a treat here are some links to two new photo collections. One is our recently posted Maid Cafe Album on Facebook, and the second is a flicker gallery of our photo booth.
Don’t know how early you can show up to JAFAX or how late into the day the awesome lasts? Fear not, for we have times to share. Our hours are Saturday: 9:30AM to 8:00PM followed by the Salia concert from 8:00PM to 10:00PM. The Sunday hours are 9:30AM to 6:00PM. Additionally, we have nailed down the events and showings times and put them in a single easy to refrence PDF here. We also thought we would share the Video Game Tournament Room Schedule, enjoy!
