Anime Midwest this past weekend was my first con. I had a ton of fun and met some cool people. The K-pop dance comp was super fun! I did end up hiding in my room too much cos I was scared, but when I went out it was good. I should have spend way more time in the game room...jubeat is the ish! I also probably should have accepted this cute girl's invite to the rave...Lessons learned! I'm super excited for the next one I go to!

I've always had a desire to go to some sort of convention growing up. But I never researched the dates and missed them usually. Finally when I was 19 I heard of a local convention called Animeland Wasabi happening the upcoming weekend and I managed to get two other friends to tag along with me. I managed to pull a random pokemon trainer cosplay out of nowhere and got so many compliments on it. That's pretty much what started my hobby of cosplaying, and my addiction for pop culture cons.

My first con was back in 2007. The name was EPAC, or El Paso Anime Con. A smallish con if you will, it was alright. But when EPAC ended and the staff created LCAD, meaning Las Cruces Anime Days, it got so much better. They were allowed to have a dealers room, and a few years later, a maid cafe.

But I'll never forget that faithful June 22-24 2007 when I went to my first con.

My first convention was Anime Central 2009!! I was 14 or 15 at the time.

I've been every year since and so much has changed it's crazy! Still a good time though.
