I went to my first one in Toronto last week! It was really fun! I really loved how all the cosplayers went all out with their costumes.

My first was Otakuthon... I was 13...It was overall great,but we( i was with a friend of mine) had barely planned anything,so we kind of just wandered trough the con,no cosplay no nothing( shorts,tank and low pigtails.... original yeah!) .Basically,we spend most of our time going over and over the vendors hall.... We watched a few animes,stepped accidentaly in the yuri section without knowing( i did not notice the type of anime written at the top -.- Was not too bad though(strawberry panic) ) played video games,watched cosplay fights,took pictures,hugged enourmous whatever kinda big flufffy plush or so cosplay people( I only,my friend believes them to be pedophiles ) , went to 2 or so panels and to the mangathèque( manga library) ... And we wanted to order BUBBLEE TEA...But there was none left,and we did not want towait...


I'm going this year again, 3 days this time, cosplaying as lightning from FFXIII ... I wanted to do Suigintou from rozen maiden,but my friends wanted to go for Final so... I guess I am lightning. In fact,we've been going back and forth on our cosplay choices every day since march so...

My first con was a small local convention back in 2009. For being such a small convention I had a lot of fun!

My first Convention was just recent, at Metrocon, supposedly the biggest convention in Florida. No offense to anyone, I thought I'd meet up with a lot of cool people watching the exact kind of anime as I do but that wasn't the case, most of them were naruto and bleach fans. I even went to a panel about what animes I watch, only about 2 people as I can vaguely remember which animes I mentioned. found it disappointing... So I stopped going, I think I was in the wrong crowd, lol.


fandoms vary by region, honestly. here in Arizona we have a fast-growing convention community, but even supposedly huge fandoms like Fate have a very small following here. people are still cosplaying from Soul Eater as if it just came out last week it can be hard finding friends from niche fandoms in real life but you just have to keep trying, really. that's why cosplay is a great thing - if you cosplay from a lesser known fandom those who also enjoy that fandom will automatically want to be your friend. I cosplayed from Umineko at our biggest anime con last year thinking no one would know who I was, but I got stopped a surprising number of times. TL;DR don't give up!
