Hmm. My Con history (dug up my saved books/schedules from them).
Project A-Kon 5 June 1994 (Sheraton-Mockingbird hotel,Dallas) (was 28yo then)
Otakon Jul 1994 (State College)
Katsucon Ichi Feb 1995 (Virginia Beach)
Otakon 2 Sep 1995 (State College)
Katsucon2 (March '96) Virginia Beach
Sugoi Con 2000 (Cincinnati)
Then I took a bit of an anime hiatus. Could swear there was one other one around or before Sugoi.

Man that A-kon was wild... especially then going to the (then) small cons afterwards. big difference. Mega enthusiasm, participation,events setup.. the startup Otakon,etc seemed slightly tame compared.
Kind of tore up my car engine getting there too.. (coolant leak... arrived in dallas w/o much keeping it cool...in fact only passing air at highway speed was most of my coolant.. (ford tempo heh) was fun/nervewracking at downtown dealing with slow speed and stoplights.
Wanted to get back down to A-kon but never did. Maybe sometime on my bike...
Also want to get to West Coast AniEx sometime too. Maybe down the line I can plan $ for that.

Bonbonsrus: Don't worry...you won't be the oldest Planning on hitting my first con since coming off hiatus there...spending a bit of a vacation week at the con/hotel... (even tho the con's only ~20-30 mins away from me

Last year, I went to this one call Daisho-Con at a waterpark kind of near my University. Wasn't really an anime convention per se, but had a bunch of anime stuff in it.

Two words:

Never. Again.

My first Con was this year actually. I know pretty late ;c My parents were a bit of over protective, so I wasn't really allowed to go to those kind of things. But now that I'm older I'll be able to go ^o^ Sadly when I went I didn't . It was a last minute planned out, so there wasn't time for the cosplays to get shipped out before the Con. However, I did enjoy seeing everyone in their cosplays. Everyone looked soo beautiful. It made me want to huggle each one of them, but was too shy to do it >.< It was the best time of life. I enjoyed every second of it. I'll be sure to plan out everything this time so I can cosplay next year. I can't wait!!

First one I ever went to was Zenkaikon, back in March. My little sister dragged me along as her bodyguard / pedo-deterrent. We did all the usual con stuff; attended some panels, ate the horrible food, bought a ton of novelty crap, and mocked the overly sweaty gentlemen taking WAY too many pictures of lady cosplayers. Chris Henson could have filmed like 6 seasons of Dateline. All-in-all it was fun. I learned that pocky is awesome, and apparently you're never to old to dress up like a japanese schoolgirl (....even if you're a dude.... yeesh)

first convention was onicon 2012 in Galveston TX.

I was 15 years old and had no idea what an anime convention was until I came there

1.) I had no idea what cosplay is
2.) my friend said something about "onicon" that's it so I don't know what to expect...
3.) Apparently, when I came in the morning... I saw a lot of cosplayers and I was like 'OH MY GOSH!!! THAT IS SO COOL!!!"
