DJ Ghost and DJ Seraph set for INFESTATION 5

If you've ever been to a Markster Con party, you probably witnessed one of these in-tune DJs help pack the dance floor. With that being said, we are extremely excited to have them in charge of the sounds for the 5th annual INFESTATION.

Both DJ Ghost and DJ Seraph have worked along event producer MarksterCon.com numerous times and also beside one another, including the inaugural, sold out Wizard's Ball in 2014. You can read more about them both by visiting the Entertainment page HERE.

So when you are thinking about what costume or outfit you want to wear this Friday night (March 4th) to The Masquerade, make sure to lace up your favorite dancing shoes or boots and be prepared to properly celebrate the halfway point to the Dragon!

Lasers and lighting provided by event co-host Dragon Fire Events.

Advanced tickets are $10 online until noon this Friday. Then they will be available at The Masquerade Box Office starting at 9pm (for $10) and then $13 (after 11pm). NOTE: This is an 18+, non-smoking event.

3D scanning and printing added to INFESTATION 5

MarksterCon.com is excited to announce that attendees to the March 4th INFESTATION 5 will get the opportunity to experience 3D scanning & printing, in all of it's nerdy epicness. So many of us grew up playing with our Star Wars and action figures, now you'll have a chance to add your own custom figure to that collection!

Personify 3D by Barker Technology, based out of Warner Robins, GA will be set-up at INFESTATION 5, scanning costumers (and anyone else) for free so you can see first-hand how it all works. NOTE: 3D printing does has a cost associated with it. It doesn't take any special talent to be scanned, just the ability to stand still for a few minutes while being rotated 180ยบ via an electronic platform.

Become a fan of Personify 3D at Facebook.com/barkertech and make sure to break out your best costume (or outfit) for your scanning on March 4th as we get halfway to the Dragon and Labor Day weekend.

INFESTATION 3 photo evidence - a great success!

We can't thank enough all of you crazy people that came out and helped make INFESTATION 3 such a great success. That goes for all of the attendees, performers, entertainers, photographers, sponsors and those that came early to help with set-up. Without you all, the event would be just an empty venue space…it's the great energy, time and creativity you all bring to an event like INFESTATION each year that truly make it an epic time for all.
