"Never let it be said that animeland didn't have a flair for the dramatic. We've had to move our dates due to scheduling hiccups...and now we're changing our venue.
Animeland Makiba will now be at Fiesta Henderson, easily located at Highway 95 and W. Lake Mead Pkwy in Henderson.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, we're settling into the new space as well. But we want to make it up to you. We want to show you that we mean it when we say we feel bad. So we'll be opening the doors to you...our loyal otaku...for free.
That's right, it won't cost you a dime to get into Animeland Makiba this year. Save it for the dealer room. Save it for Anime Vegas in a few days at the Cashman. Save it for Animeland Makiba 2013 (pre-reg already open).
Part of our moving arrangement is that we know that we'll be back next spring for a full monty Makiba at Palace Station. But for now, we'll be bringing you Misfit Madness, complete with Zombie Crawl, trick or treating, and a dance that will leave you needing more!
But what if you already paid? We're glad you asked. Those people will STILL receive their mystery plush and will STILL get into the Animeland Makiba 2013...AND will have use of our hospitality suite, which includes a place to cool off, calm down, grab a drink or snack, and indulge in our round the clock ramen/pizza party!
Not interested in those perks? Contact us before 10 am November 2nd with your order number, and we'll get you refunded, no questions asked. After that, you'll be rolled over to the 2013 show automatically, with the option to sell/transfer your tickets if you change your mind.
We appreciate you, Las Vegas. We only hope you enjoy Animeland as much as we enjoy bringing it to you!
We'll see you soon!" What the actual fuck? They went from close to being in the Strip to Mexican land.

Hey guys! I was hoping to bounce some ideas around, as I'm stuck on a costume.
I'm doing an animatronic tail that can move side-to-side, as seen in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxAl2NGOZQI&feature=related .
The tail is made by a bunch of snake-like sections attached down the center on top and bottom with a cord threaded down one side and up the other. However, the foam doesn't really want to hold any form of loop for the rope to run through. I tried gluing rubber circles to the sides for these tracks, but they come off too easily. I haven't gotten my hands on barge yet- I'm using a mixture of hot glue, sewing with duct-tape enforced edges, and a spray adhesive right now. I also tried threading the rope through the sections, but there's too much tension and I can't get the rope to contract the entire length of the tail. I was thinking about drilling holes and covering them with plastic inside somehow, but I'd need some pretty long/wide holes. Any ideas?
