Hey guys! I'm just dropping this thread out of pure curiosity, and in hopes of spreading the word of the one convention in Oklahoma that I know about. ^_^

So, are there any of you out there living in Oklahoma? I've found out that when it comes to anime conventions and cosplayers, Oklahoma is sadly a dead zone, so I'm hoping to find others!

Does anyone know of any conventions besides the RoninCon (Formerly RuneCon) that take place in Oklahoma?

Ronin/RuneCon takes place in October (the dates change with the OU football schedule), on the University of Oklahoma campus, so there are any of you guys out there in Oklahoma who can't find an in-state convention, check out this one? Once the fall term starts, I'll be able to check with the OU Animation Society and see about dates, but the more people we have come, the bigger we can grow!

Hope to talk to you guys soon!

Sincerely,

Charli

There's going to be a big con next year called Tatsucon in Oklahoma City, I think. They talked about it at Cos-con. Oh, and Cos-con is going to be a lot bigger next year too! Those are the only two besides Mini-con that I know about.

OH ho ho ho ho!! I'm working on spreading the anime/manga joy! Yeah 4 hours of convention like fun in Jenks Oklahoma.

I'm in Stillwater, OK and would love to find a con. I was considering one last year with a friend, but plans fell through. Have yet to be to any Anime cons.

DESCRIPTIONS OF EVENTS:

Anime Pictionary

Draw your prompt out of a hat, and test your artistic skills! See how fast someone in the crowd can guess - then it's their turn. Stick around for a chance to win door prizes!

Iron Cosplay

Alright - you've got half an hour, 3 trashbags, a cardboard box, and a roll of duct tape. GO! Make us your best costume! This game will be played in groups with 2 rounds - first round to be judged on similarity to a costume from a given theme, second round to be judged on an improv skit - both based on what you can build from the materials we give you.

Anime Stop 'N Go

This is a fun improv skit game! We give your group several conditions or characters and you act it out!

Karaoke

Sing along with your favorite theme songs or J-pop stars! We advise to bring your favorite songs on CD as our supply will be limited. Open mic is just for fun, but don't be shy to enter the contest too! The contest may be one or two rounds depending on the number of entrants.

Cosplay Contest

Costumes from all genres are welcome - anime, game, sci-fi, fantasy, etc.!! You can perform a skit (please no longer than 3 minutes) or simply walk-on, walk-off to show off your costume. Entrants will be judged on costume construction, overall appearance, and performance or stage presence. Bringing a reference photo of your character is strongly encouraged, but not required. (Just please make sure your costume and performance are PG!)

Masquerade Ball

Put on your best attire and get ready to dance into the night! Decorations will be provided by the wonderful Celia from the original Malice Mizer cosplay group.

Dance Dance Revolution (DDR)

The home PS2 versions of the game will be projected on a large screen and free for everyone to play! For super dancers, enter either of our contests depending on your skill level.

Star Wars Pose Off

We give you a pose and whoever can do the pose the best wins - this time it's Star Wars themed! No Jedi mind tricks to persuade the judges, though. ^.~

Voice Off

This is for all you fans who dream of being voice actors. Try your hand at dubbing over anime and sci-fi series!

I think everyone knows what charades and musical chairs are, just imagine the spin we'll put on it. =D
