Looking for roomies [Jun. 11th, 2011|03:25 pm]

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

Hello all,

I have a room at the Westin (5 min walk to the con) for Metro '11 that I managed to get a great deal on, lower than the con rate. The room has two double beds and of course floor space; I also have an air mattress I can bring if necessary.

It's just my friend and I for now, and we are looking to share with two-six other people... if we get at least two, it'll only be $44.25 per person for both nights, less if we get more!

Please email (pickledfur @ gmail) or PM me for more info... I can give you my cell # so you can confirm that I'm human, and maybe we could meet up beforehand and whatnot if you wanted to.

We're also willing to give rides to up to three other people if some gas $$ is thrown down, though in the Tampa area only (Hillsborough County).

We're both girls btw in our early 20s.

Metrocon 2010 [Aug. 2nd, 2010|08:46 pm]

Did anyone go to the Karaoke portion of the convention?
If not, I have some videos for you to enjoy:


Just thought I'd share :D

How was everyone's trip? Did everyone have a good time?
Anyone have videos or pictures they want to share? :)

2010 METRO Star Party & Fantasy Masquerade Audition Info Online! [Jan. 7th, 2010|08:01 am]

[Current Mood |busybusy]

Apologies for the long delay, but I bring the news that the other two METROCON Main Events, The Fantasy Masquerade and METRO Star Party, have their audition information now online! View the character lists and read all the pertinent info if you plan to audition, then make sure you download (this includes all veteran cast members) and fill out the Performer Tryout Form to bring with you at tryouts!

Tip: Keep an eye out for those pesky invisible ninjas! Also, both The Fantasy Masquerade and METRO Star Party do require the additional acting abilities of improvisation and interactive acting with audience members, so please keep this mind as you prep for auditions!

If you have any questions, please be sure to contact the appropriate Directors for the shows.

Mascot 2010 Audition information is ONLINE! [Jan. 4th, 2010|09:21 pm]

[Current Mood |excitedexcited]

Do you have a flair for entertaining thousands of people? Do you have a positive outlook? Do you love METROCON?

If you have answered "yes" to all of those questions, you just may have what it takes to represent METROCON as the 2010 Mascots!

We are in search of two guys and two girls with enthusiasm and dedication to take on the mantle of METROCON's 2010 Mascots. Mascots will be present on all convention advertising, as well as have their image rendered by professional artists for convention media!

Come show your METROCON spirit at the 2010 Mascot Auditions!

Don't forget, this year's theme is Samurai vs. Ninja!

Click here for more information!

NOTE: Please read the FULL PAGE very carefully, as things have changed since last year's audition!!

See you there!

Back Online! [Nov. 26th, 2009|10:29 pm]

[Current Mood |busybusy]

Just letting everyone know that AnimeMetro.com and MetroConventions.com websites are back online finally. We had not only issues with the server maintenance, but then we had problems with the IP address getting messed up and then stuck. It took a few phone calls to get that squared away! (FYI, if you still do not see the sites online, do not worry. They should show for everyone within the next day or so.)

We'll be finishing up the new site updates for METROCON 2010 and we're planning for pre-registration to be online by next week! ^_^

Thank you to all for your patience during this (slightly stressful) ordeal, and we'll see you guys around on the forums (for those who are members)!

Server Maintenance Notice [Oct. 30th, 2009|05:34 am]

Okay, just reminding everyone - once again - that the server is down for some maintenance. This means that the MetroConventions.com and AnimeMetro.com websites are currently temporarily offline. Unfortunately the maintenance will take longer than the originally planned schedule (the squirrels have conspired against us again!).

Due to the unforeseen delay of replacement parts and whatnot, we are doing our best to make sure everything is back up and running as quickly as possible. Until then, we apologize for the inconvenience and point out that any announcements concerning the convention will be posted here and/or through Twitter.

Stay tuned for news and updates concerning METROCON 2010!

Oh, and just as an fyi for those who did not attend the Necronomicon panel, METROCON will be held July 23-25, 2010 at the Tampa Convention Center. Also, this year we were declared a city-wide event by the City of Tampa!
