They also sent us the picture you can see to the right with an introduction by Sarah, their newest member.
“Hello, This is Sarah. I’m here to tell you about my parents, Kristene & Joseph Onyskow of Dragon Spirit Studios. My mom is the artist and has been drawing her whole life. My Dad is the manager and finds what cons we go to, hotels, and stuff like that. Now for me. I’m the newest member of Dragon Spirit Studios and I’m the official helper. I help my Mom at her table and my Dad when he runs his panel. I’m also an artist and I love to draw animals. So, stop by, say Hi and check out what we have to offer.
We have set our final hours for the event, as well as posted the showtimes for the masquerade and fashion show with links to their elaborate forums listings.
Bottom line, the doors open at 10AM both Saturday and Sunday. We will enthusiastically encourage departure from the show floor at 8PM Saturday and 6PM Sunday. Vendors and Artist Alley run all day Saturday, and on Sunday they will close at 4PM.
Head to the about page for a more bland visualization of this information.
And when you do need to sleep, and if you haven’t already found a place to do that, we have assembled a list of hotels in the area in order of distance. You can find it on our Navigating JAFAX page. ProTip: Figuring this detail out soon would be a good idea.
We have added the newest version of our Parent/Guardian Permission Form for all those younger enthusiasts who have signed up to volunteer but can’t yet legally vote. So if you are between the ages of 13 and 18 be sure to print out a copy, fill it out, and bring it to the event with your particular legal guardian’s signature. If we don’t get a fully complete form then we can’t let you volunteer, you’ll just have to watch a bunch of Anime, read Manga, and buy Swag. Life is hard.
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.
