Did the finances today and planned a trip to my very first convention! After being a fan of anime for over 15 years, I am FINALLY able to attend a convention.

June 6th - 8th in Dallas is the 25th Annual A-Kon. Pretty excited about this one, considering it is my very first. Any tips or advice for getting the most out of a con?

Heyyy ....nice meeting you guys... I am goin to my fifth con next month in orlando... And let me tell you cons are reallyy fun!!! Since its your first one i wont push it on cosplayin i would do it on after my first so you get an idea of how others do it (idk how big u are on cosplay)....if im not cosplayin i usually carry a large purse so i can put goodies that i buy instead of caryin them around (some vendors usually dont have bags and stuff) try to go to as manu forums and activities they hav that pick your interest they ar usually fun ... And voice actors and celebrities well if i know them (from voicing anime or games i watched) i usually go to their pannels and ask then questions, make them recite a line on the anime voice they did ...but try no to be repetitive and come up with good questions bc they will appreciate that (i usually do that and they will keep u in mind and let u take pic w them at end...i have done it quite a few times already hehe) hm.. If you can its better if you stay at the hotel at the convention they normally have more stuff goin on there too. Lets see idk what else to tell you lol if u have any questions let me know..

Be aware of products their. While they say they have a strick no fake policy they rarely enforce it or even try and make an attempt.
