Get away from the stuffy confines of the convention floor and come join us in paradise!

Gaming is awesome, we know.  And we also know that if you're lucky enough to get a pass into E3 you probably want to spend as much time as you can checking out all the new developments in the industry.  But, there's something else to enjoy at E3 this year as well.

Straight across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center's West Entrance at 12th and Figueroa, all us cool kids at CraveOnline will be kicking back and relaxing on the high-tech CraveIsland.

Once you enter the tent, you'll feel like you've been transported into an island oasis. While Crave Island provides a place to relax, there’s certainly no shortage of activities. You can watch the CraveOnline Cosplay Fashion Show featuring the likes of popular gaming personas strutting their stuff on the catwalk every day at 2pm and 5pm. Crave Island “vacationers” can also throw on a grass skirt, coconut bra, and choose one of three backdrops at the Green Screen Photo Booth! All attendees will receive a copy of their photo, have the chance to upload to Facebook, and view the image on the Crave Island Web site.

At the Challenge A Pro-Gamer Station, sponsored by Gamma Labs, competition will be at an all time high, as hardcore gamers are invited to go head-to-head with the professional Gamma Gamers. The Gamma Girls will also be handing out samples of the Gamma Labs Pre-Training Formula. Through it all, one of 14 DJs will be spinning tunes over at Club Crave—while the CraveOnline Bikini Girls make sure that everyone gets “lei’d”.  That should be reason enough…

If a different kind of recharging is in need, the Charging Station presented by Colgate Speedstick provides multiple units to charge all kinds of mobile devices—as well as a comfortable lounge for their owners.

I'm sure you're wondering how you can enjoy all of the fun if you're not in LA, right?  Done. All of the action will be brought back to the Crave Island Web site on CraveOnline, where you can check out all the fun we're having. The site houses the latest videos and photos from the event, allowing you to catch up on Crave Island live tweets, vote for your favorite CosPlay contestant, view photos from the green screen photo booth, and read up on all 14 DJs.

Here's the info you need:

Last but certainly not least, a non-stop stream of celebs and gaming personalities will be stopping by to talk to our host Becky Young and hang out with fans at the tent.  Just a few of the names on the list include, Randy "N0m4d" Fitzgerald, UFC Ring Girl Brittany Palmer, Tay Zonday(Chocolate Rain), rocker Mickey Avalon and so many more.  All the videos from the interviews will be uploaded to the CraveIsland Web site, but if you want to meet all the celebs in person, be sure to come hang out with us at the tent!

See you all there!
