Thanks for the tip! I'm not the extreme-fangirl, except in some cases. So I'll watch myself. :3

Anime St. Louis 2010 was my first convention. Didn't know what to do and it was a spur of a moment thing so I didn't have as much fun. Natsucon 2010 was my first true con experince.

My first con... ah, I'd been talking to a friend on an old mailing list, and he mentioned that he was working with a con that needed more help. It wasn't too far from where I lived. So he roped me into it- it was Shoujocon 2001, and I'd just turned 20 when it came up. And I have to say that I really enjoyed it- though I imagine it was a very weird having my first con experience in a staffer position. But I stayed on staff for all of the Shoujocons that happened afterwards. And... Onna, but... I won't go there...

I was 22 at my first con. My first con was New York Big Apple Anime Fest in 2002. Went for one day and didn't do much other then dealers room. Second con was a Comic Con in Philly but with family. I guess my real first experince was in 2004 at Anime Next. I was by myself at con first time. Made all the mistakes. Came in on friday and left sunday leaving stuff in the bathroom of the hotel. Why now I come in thursday and leave monday if at all possible. I spent to much money on day one my first year at AN. I made all the mistakes.

My first convention was back in October 2008.

I went to the London MCM Expo all by myself when I was only 15 years old. I had originally planned to take friends with me, but they all dropped out at the last minute. I was too determined to let them stop me, which is how I ended up going on my own. I'll admit, it wasn't that great because of it. I only stayed for an hour or two to see the Gaia Online event. I didn't even buy anything!

My second convention was definitely a lot better. (:

MTAC Pi, 2002... and I went 3 more years in a row.
Sadly, I missed most of the rest until MTAC 11 this year because of college. (finally back, woo!)

My first con was an amazing experience, I finally felt like I was fitting in somewhere.
It has grown so much in the past years it amazes me, even though I sometimes miss the intimacy of a small con.

My first con was Kumoricon. Must have been either 7th or 8th grade. Gosh~ it's been so long~! Haha.
Best decision of my life! I'e been going to cons ever since, though now I've graduated to Sakuracon (which I went for the first time two years ago when I turned 18) and I'll be headed to Akicon this year for the first time~

My first anime convention was actually Otakon 2010. So I'm very new to the convention scene. I was 23 at the time.

This September will hopefully be my first. Nan Desu Kan in Denver, Colorado. I'm going with my friend and my brother, who thinks about cosplaying as Rock Lee, Death the Kid or Lelouch.
