My first was Youmacon, just over a month ago. I'm a veteran of sci-fi conventions, so I wasn't exactly first-timer freaked out, but it was by far the biggest con I've been to, and it was kind of intimidating. I also waited too long to book a room, so ended up commuting. On public transportation. That sucked big time.

Don't remember what my first was called, but it was when I was in 6th grade in 1994 in Tokyo. It was huge. It was insane. It was incredibly fun. Just remember crushing on a lot of the female cosplayers and buying a lot of cool stuff really cheap.

Pokecon in Louisville KY was my first anime convention! I was 19 years old and It's was on July 20,2013 at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport! I have a lot of fun. I went to panels, participate in events, meet new anime fans, and went to a rave! It was the best day of my life!

A-Kon 12 in Dallas. That was almost 14 years ago now. Also went to A-Kon 13 the next year. Only visited for one day each time. Don't remember the specific hotels but I saw Duel Jewel at 13 and loved it. :D

After that I didn't go to a con until A-Kon 25, mostly because I kept forgetting and I had tight finances.

A-Kon 25 changed everything for me. Before, it was small, in a fairly small hotel, and I didn't stay. 25 on the other hand was in the Hilton Anatole, which is farking huge. I was amazed at how much the con had grown. The total square footage A-Kon 25 covered was probably triple or more that of A-Kon 12/13.

I also booked a room in the hotel for all three days and pretty much lived in anime city. A-Kon 12 may have been my first time at an anime convention, but 25 was the first time I really immersed myself in the experience.

It was awesome. And I'm doing it again this year.

And no. I didn't cosplay.

This year, I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf mutes.

Megacon in 2011. It was great! I've been to F.A.E 2011, Megacon 2011, 2012, 2014 and this year will be my 4th year, Mythicon 2014, and I think that's it.
