Once again, the hotel is not charging the one-night deposit when you make your reservation, and is also waiving the automatic incidental charge at check in.  When you present a debit or credit card at check-in, please tell the agent whether you want “incidentals” turned on.  Incidentals include: room service charges to your room, phone calls from the room, mini bar access, in room movies and parking automatically charged to your guest room.  If you decide to have the incidentals turned on, your Debit / Credit Card will be charged $50 per day, per room unit “hold”.  This is an industry standard to cover any incidental charges – movies, room service, phones, etc.  Please note, the front desk will need to be told by you, at check-in, to make this change.

Mini A-Kon 8: The Return – February 28th 2015

When is Mini A-Kon?

Mini A-Kon 8 is February 28th 2015 from 10am-5pm in both the Denton Civic Center and Emily Fowler Library.

10011584_10154752920360347_126549326730734132_oWhat should I wear or bring?

Dress is casual (jeans & tee shirt for example) or you might want to wear a costume. Remember all costumes should cover the vital areas and not be considered inappropriate for children to see! All cosplay must be appropriate dress for a public swimming area. No exposed private areas. If in doubt, bring a cloak, or alternate clothes you can change into and keep them in your car. (And if you really have to think about it, it’s probably not appropriate, so don’t wear it!).

We suggest you bring any items you’d like our guests to autograph for you (books, photos, etc.), as well as a bag to carry your purchases. You might also want to bring a camera.

NOTE: There will be no professional video/photography without prior arrangements and consent.

Is it safe for children? What age groups should come?

Mini A-Kon is a great stepping stone or first con experience for kids. The one day setting and the price allow you and your child to get a feel for what an anime/gaming convention would be like, without a huge investment. While the events at Mini A-Kon are for general audiences of all ages, we do want people to be aware there may be the occasional ‘skimpy’ costume that tends to be worn as someone dresses as their favorite anime/game character. We have limitations on outfits that state they need to be appropriate at a public swimming pool, to give you an idea of what you may see.

10511609_10154752926130347_3320027260697130106_oThere are great events for all ages and we get a wide-range of attendees – from babies to grandparents.

What is there to do?

We will have Voice Actors, Artist Q&A, an Artist Alley, Gaming, as well as Dealers, and other panels.

Programming is a complicated process. It takes many months to assemble, and involves managing time, numerous people, and working everyone into the space. As such, it usually does not come together until just a few months before the convention and may change up to the day of the convention. However, the guest list and programming schedule will be posted as it becomes available. Stay tuned for updates!
