May 23 – 26, 2008
The 5th Annual ShibariCon is being held in over Memorial Day weekend (May 23rd – 26th) and draws an international crowd.
ShibariCon is the world’s premier annual exhibition and conference that focuses on education and information exchange among lovers of Japanese rope bondage. Many of the world’s well-known rope riggers, teachers, authors, models and web site hosts are there. I would highly encourage everyone to head over to the ShibariCon site, (http://www.shibaric on.com), as the discounted registration for
ShibariCon ends on Friday April 25th, 2008.
We have some amazing presenters this year, including old favorites like Mark Yu, Tatu, Jim Duvall, Lochai, SxySadist, Mike West, Sir C, and Mark of DV8 House. We are also excited to welcome Lee Harrington, Jay Wiseman, Mick & Dee Luvbight, Scott Smith, LqqkOut, and Max of bondagelessons. com, who were not on the teaching roster last year.
These presenters are a small sample of the over 40 presenters that will be teaching a myriad of classes for everyone from the greenest beginner to the seasoned bondage rigger. One of ShibariCon’s
hallmark is its cooperative nature. It’s chock-full of good workshops on multiple tracks, and all those presenters go out of their way to be accessible during the breaks and in the dungeon for questions and consultations.
In addition to learning opportunities, there will be special events hosted by Graydancer, 3 magnificent nights of play, a fabulous pre con trip on Thursday, May 22nd to thehosted by Shevah & Tatu, a traditional tea hosted by Tatu, and lots of fabulous vendors selling everything from rope & toys to corsets & shoes. We even have a Japanese wedding taking place at the event this year. 2008 will be a very special year for ShibariCon 5.
This is definitely going to be an amazing year that you do not want to miss. Until April 25, Registration is only $185 for 4 days of fun, learning and, of course, plenty of rope. Day Passes are available for Friday 5/23, Saturday 5/24, and Sunday 5/25. REGISTRATIONS WILL CLOSE AFTER 5/18/08, So don’t delay!
ShibariCon 5 is being held at the beautiful Hyatt Regency O’Hare, which is easily accessible by both public transportation and car, along with a free shuttle running fromright to their front door. They have also graciously offered ShibariCon attendees a discounted room rate, so get yours before they are gone!
As a side note – IML (International Mr. Leather) is held a few miles away on the same weekend. IML is probably the largest BDSM “Title” event in the country, drawing thousands of contestants and attendees each year, and this is IML’s 30th anniversary. It’s another great reason to go to http://www.imrl. com/– the IML vendor fair is an easy train ride away.
Over 90 Great Classes, 2 great events in one city, great hotel, 3 nights of great dungeon play, great people – What more could you want out of a great weekend of great kink?
