You can register to be in the masquerade at the registration desk. Costumes of all kinds will be welcome. As always we will have prizes for the best costumes at the convention.

Anime Room:

As with our video room, the anime room was one of our more popular rooms last year. With videos like “Battle Angel”, “Ninja Scroll”, and “Sorcerer Hunters” you can see why it was so popular. This year we plan on having as good if not better selection of anime for you to see. To contact us with ideas for anime: Anime at Astronomicon dot info
