I went to the TGS (Tokyo Game Show) 2011. It rained, was humid, but I had fun.Got handed a lot of stuff by people that other visitors didn't have and was offered to take pictures with a lot of people (I declined cause I didn't have a good camera, was naive of me), but that wasn't the weird part. The strangest part was when I went to this booth outside of the building. They had a raffle for cool prizes like a portable gaming tv, handheld cases, free bandai channel online subscription, etc. What you do is stick your hand in a box, pull out a paper and whatever paper you pull out, you get the prize that matches it. The lady asked me to try it, but I had my sister do it for me. So she reached her hand in the box and suddenly pulled it out, holding a piece of paper in the sky. I laughed and asked if she was trying out a new action pose. She handed it to the lady. The lady broke out in a sweat and showed it to her associates. I then asked if anything was wrong. She told me I won the Grand Prize and to pick whatever I wanted, in other words, "Free for All". I think the thing that weird for them was that instead of cleaning them out, I only chose two of the multicolored PSP game cases. I asked my sister if she wanted anything but she didn't see anything so the lady went inside of the tent, dug in a bag, pulled out some cellphone straps, and asked which ones she wanted.

Yeah, was quite the weird day but I had fun.

Then gets into elevator with shoes on.. Notice there's a guy staring at my friend and I ,all the way down the escalator.. Gets down the escalator,guy still staring.. He finally says '' Free hugs Oo??'' ( was wearing my domo free hugs :3) then I answer ,well yeah .. He said he never saw any (whataa,where was he the whole convention??)

I dressed up one year and went to an anime convention with a friend. At the train station, a creepy old man walked up to my friend and whispered something in her ears, she gave me a look and walked away immediately. I found out later that the old man took one look at me and said "how much?"(ー△ー;)

Back in 2009 I was at my yearly local anime convention, Bakuretsu Con, which I haven't been back to since due to not having the money and/or time, but totally want to go to again this year if I can. Anyways, I was there with my friend and she hadn't dressed up, but I had dressed up like Rukia from Bleach. We were going up and down some of the main halls of the convention, which is held in a local hotel and are regular halls, which aren't all that wide. Well, when we came back to the end of one, there was a guy dressed as Captain Gin there. Anyone who knows Bleach knows that Rukia is wary of Gin. Well, I gave him this look that told him both not to mess with me and to stay away from me. He had a fake sword, but I didn't and he drew his and pointed it towards me. I told him that it wasn't wise for him do that, as I knew what he was up to (if you know Bleach, you'll know what I mean), and he took a few steps towards me. "I'd be careful if I were you, unless you want to get cut up," or something like that, he said to me, thrusting the sword at me. I was like, "Watch it," and backed away from him, watching him warily, and then went down the hall with my friend. The guy even had the unsettling closed eye look that Gin has going on. XD Was a weird but fun experience in cosplay mode.

This creepy yaoi fangirl followed us around for a bit once. She wouldn't stop talking, was really hyper, and bragged about her time in Japan. When we managed to finally ditch her, we ran into a our physics teacher who was all dressed up, with a top hat and a large black cap and stuff. He pretended not to see us. Haha.

Hmm... I'd say con-crud for the grossest. I know people are at a con to have a good time, myself included, but the lack of bathing by some is nasty. Neatest would probably be my group chilling around outside in the smoking area, start humming Bohemion Rhapsody, and then having over 60 people just start singing along.

@ Megouuhhh-Chii, I know from working at cons that the whole shoes thing is sometimes hotel policy or a law in that area. The town one I work at has a law for shoes and shirt while in public, excluding beaches and pools. That, and those escalators do like to munch on things - we've had to extract a furry that had its tail get eaten before.

Meeting Carlos Ferro -Voice actor of Dom Santiago from Gears- and him telling me to look at a girl in a nightwing -tight- outfit. The Him looking at me and saying that he would bang that. Gotta love that guy.

my friend kyle pointing out a hot chick in a Fluttershy getup -short shorts and a yellow T with pink wings- he told me to go over and smack her ass and say "I just dont know what went wrong" so i did it and got a hug from the girl.

Trying to Have a conversation with Jessica Nigri is pretty awkward.

sitting in line waiting for the masquerade and out of my peripheral I see this girl to the side of us trying to be all stealthy digging her nose for like 5 minutes straight and wiping it on the ground next to us and it was just creepy/weird overall and we were texting eachother to verify that we all saw what she was doing and decided to scoot away a lil bit lol.
