If your going solo do some research on what's going on (panels, autographs, etc) it's a good time to do those without having to drag friends with you. This also applies to any exclusives your trying to hunt down since your doing things at your pace. Also know that you're not the only one solo'ing.

I currently went to the Anime Expo by myself. Yes I'll admit it was a little loney but overall I had fun. I could go where I wanted to at whatever time I wanted to. I didn't feel held back which was great lol

I am only 15, but when I turn 16 and get my license, I am thinking of going to conventions on my own. For every past convention and future convention before I turn 16 my dad has to drive me to the cons I want to go to.

I don't think it's worth missing a con just because you are going by yourself. it can still be fun. My first convention, and also the last one i went to was by myself. Not going to lie, it was lonely. My advice is just talk to people, try to make friends, enjoy the events. And definitely cosplay honestly, i think it's less fun to go without cosplaying. People that go to a con in normal clothes and not cosplay. ... kinda look out of place

>/////< talking to people will be hard! i think that since im dressing up, people will talk to me first.

im also kinda paranoid...people wont attack me when i leave to go to my car right?
