Tokyo in Tulsa is back for a sixth year of Japanese animation, gaming cosplay and more. In 2012, TnT (as fans call it) attracted more than 5,000 participants to the convention. This year, organizers hope to top that. From Friday, Aug. 2-Sunday, Aug. 4, the Cox Business Center, 100 Civic Center, will become starbase to panel discussions, gaming events, costume competitions, concerts and more. Plenty of artists and vendors in the sci-fi and fantasy genres will showcase their work and merchandise for purchase. Admission for Tokyo in Tulsa is through memberships. Three-day early membership packages are sold out, but you can still get in on the action: Full weekend memberships ($50) and single day memberships ($30) will be available at the door. Registration begins at 9 a.m. each day. To see the full schedule for Tokyo in Tulsa, go to www.tokyointulsa.com.
