Oh hey, from the background it seems like it happened here in San Jose at Fanime. ^_^;;

Hahaaaa wow!
I've been so several expos and I've never stolen anything myself :o
I found an empty Miku figurine box on the floor near a bag of rubbish and the picture was soo cute, so I took that. I didn't consider it stealing though since it was abandonned! :o

I have noticed how easy it would be to steal though, some of the stall owners don't really look around sometimes and the stuff is soo expensiveeee it would be open for thieves I've spent £100 at least at expos (not in one go, but it doesn't take long to spend a lot) so it is expensive and I can see why people steal, though I never have :o
I've never seen anyone steal from an expo though, most people are honest and are supportive :3

Hahah! Yes! That picture!

But, sadly, stealing from conventions is not anything new. You have a bunch of vendors out in the same area, and a lot of people walking around, it's easy to miss someone taking something.

Never stole anything but I did watch passively while some of my friends stole from this guy we were hanging out with. In their defense, he admitted to stealing at least half of the stuff, admitted to doing it all the time and tried to run off with our friend's scale keyblade. So, he fell asleep in the middle of the freaking hallway and they walked away with Nintend-opoly and a Sora action figure. We gave the action figure to the friend with the keyblade and we kept the Nintend-opoly.

I've been to Anime Detour in MN but I didn't steal. Even if I wanted to, there were too many people around & I'd be scared of getting caught

Edit: I would feel really bad too because the people there are nice.

Hmm don't steal from these conventions its not worth it if you cant afford it don't take it, especially from other otakus they are what keep the conventions going.
The only thing ive tried to steal are some of the female cosplayers hearts but no luck......... sigh.............
No, I don't steal from these conventions and if you ever steal from a guy with full sleeve tattoos and its me ooo baby....
I do however try to warn random people when i see their valuables left out or bags,purses, and backpacks left wide open to close them or put them away. They either thank me or give me a weird look I kinda do look like the last person who would warn them.
