NYAF '09. I was 13 at the time.

And now that I live in NC, let along 30 min. from Raleigh, I'm going to Animazement each year now. Yay! (Started going at Animazement '10 xD Can't wait until May~)

In spring 2002, I dropped by Anime Central for the first time... and DID IT WRONG. Here's what I did wrong:

1. Didn't get there until early Sunday afternoon. By that time, there were only a few panels, and just a couple hours left for artist alley, dealers room, etc.

2. I neglected to bring enough coins for the nearby parking meter, so I ended up exchanging a dollar for quarters.

3. Didn't bring a camera.

4. Spent only a few minutes in artist alley. That's where unique fan art and crafts get sold... unlike the dealers room, where nearly everything available is also at local stores, and often cheaper online.

5. Didn't go back in 2003, because I assumed that the con would be driven by political rallies.

These days, I actually make time to attend cons from Friday through Sunday. I make sure to bring a quality camera, batteries, and a memory card. I attend panels, and find out where photoshoots will occur. I have portable healthy food with me, and more back in the hotel. I keep a DS and some card games in case I end up in a long line.

Hmmm my first con was AnimeCon in San Jose in 1991 and my second was Anime Expo is 92... sheesh that was so long ago... I was 21 at the time. Since then I helped with Anime North (was one of the people working for the con) been to Otakon in Baltimore and Natsukon I think... while in Japan I stumbled upon in 1994 or was it 1995 Daikon in Osaka at International House. And yes it was stumbled upon I didn't know they were there but seeing some japanese girls dressed as a Dirty Pair certainly peeked my interest. And finally I did do once the huge Dojinshi convention called Comiket at Big Site in Tokyo... shit man 600,000 otakus on a three day event and the smell... ewwww.... I was lucky to land me some circle tickets so I got into the site before the big rush.... man brings back so many memories

my first con was katsucon 15 in 2009. i was 16.
it started out as the worst first con ever because i got there late and they weren't doing at the door registrations anymore. i started freaking out and was literally on the verge of tears. but then my friend came up with the idea to just report hers lost so we could get an extra. i felt kinda guilty at first but then i started having too much fun XD

My fist convention was this tiny one called AniMagic.
I was 14 and a total noob. It's embarrassing remembering it, but damn it was fun.

The first one is always fun. ^_^
Just do your best not to fangirl too much. People will tend to judge and avoid you for it.
