For those of you who haven't yet purchased your MineCon tickets, today is the last day to get them at the early-bird price of $99. The Early Bird Special ends tonight at 11:59 PST. After tonight the price increases to $139.
Included in that $99 ticket is a free Minecraft cloak given away as MineCon swag. Mojang opened up the swag cloak fan giveaway to a fan vote in order to decide the winner out of 8 choices. The winning cloak (shown below) is the Creeper Cloak. According to Mojang, fans attending will "receive the cloak before MineCon and be able to keep it even after the event is over."
MineCon takes place in unison with the official Minecraft launch on November 18 and continues it's celebration to November 19. The lineup includes keynote speeches from creator Markus 'Notch' Persson, classes about "all different Minecraft topics," build and costume contests, exhibits "by leading gaming and Minecraft related companies," and buying commemorative merchandise.
