Hey guys! Sorry we’ve been quiet on our website and Facebook page. The website had technical issues for a few months (WOAH), and we barely got it fixed just after New Years’ (Yay!).
Anyway, if you haven’t already, go over to Registration to Pre-Register for discounted pricing. If you are a VENDOR or an ARTIST, you can Register here. We still have spaces available.

If you didn’t know, GATO Con 2014 is February 22-23, Saturday and Sunday.
If you’re wondering which guests we are having, click on Guests above. We got some old favorites, including some new ones.

Reminder About Cosplay and Weapons

Love to Cosplay? Great! We can’t wait to see you at GATOCon!

I’d just like to put up this reminder about weapons and cosplay for GATOCon. Real weapons are NOT allowed. We are still on a university campus and safety is a major issue. We do have permission for use of foam, cardboard, and other “fake” weapons. If you aren’t sure if what you plan on bringing is an acceptable item, be sure to contact Cory at 361-228-3477 to ask. No harm in being too cautious.

Further details on the policy is located here.

Thanks everybody!
