What regrets do you have from conventions, if any? Was there something you wish you did or didn't do?

Mine is from Otakon 2014, last weekend. On Saturday, i was online at starbucks minding my own business. There were these girls behind me, cosplaying from Kill La Kill. The asked me if i was cosplaying from Waiting In The Summer. We talked a little bit, and took each others photos. They were really nice and i really wanted to talk more with them. But i pretty much ran away right after getting my coffee, without even exchanging names. That's my biggest regret at the convention.
It was my first time at that convention and it would have been nice to make some friends.

People say to not live in the past, but maybe this can act as some kind of advice for others....

I have some regrets from Fanimecon 2014. I wish I was more social, but it's just not easy for me to talk to people I've never met before. I did want to get to know this Gasai Yuno cosplayer that I photographed.

But Japan Expo USA is coming up, so hopefully I get another chance at being more open.

I have many regrets after Anime Expo each year but I'll do this year.

AX 2014:
I should have gone more days because I had a four day pass and only went two days. My second day I was busy with panels and did not have time to shop.
I also regret not socializing with other con-goers because I am too shy. I waited hours in a line for a panel next to a random guy with a No Game No Life bag and I was still scared of striking up a conversation. T^^T

I was caught between friends I hadn't seen in 6 years and people I have been trying to get to know better at the last con. Of course I stayed with the friends from 6 years ago, but now the new almost-friends might think I don't like them, which is not true, I'm just painfully shy! Also didn't go to the last con that happened nearby that I usually attend, and I'm pretty sure they were there. I MUST make a real push next con and get their contact info!

Also didn't go to the dealer's room at the last con. However, did get some sick posters from Artist's Alley. The Ryuuko posters are especially boss.

I regret being so introverted. I always say I am going to meet new people, go to the dances or, cosplay, but I never end up doing any of these things. I know it's not an excuse, but being a bigger guy just makes me so so nervous, and I end up just sticking to my friends and the things I like to do. Although this year I did volunteer as a staffer at Sakura Con, so progress

I regret not making any friends while waiting in the lines...
Really sucked walking around Otakon alone this year, takes away from the experience.

I met these two cute chicks waiting in line with me for the Kill La Kill autograph session, and I wish I could have continued to talk with them and exchanged friendcodes or something, lol.

I also did not ask them to attend the rave with me, everyone that was there were in groupds, and being too nervous I just stayed alone and stood angrily with my arms crossed in the corner the whole night, had all these creepy dudes asking me weird questions, and missed out on a great time.

There was also a really attractive chick cosplaying as Ragyō Kiryūin, that I could swear was only wearing semi transparent plastic wrap over her breasts, which is probably why I couldn't muster up the courage to ask to take a photo...

Went to ACen for the first time this year, first convention for me as well. My only regret was not bringing enough money to buy things.

Last year I went Anime Weekend Atlanta for my first convention. I believe I spent too much time in the dealer's room and not enough time going to panels.

GAnime. It's in Gatineau, but it's a joke of a con. Literally the size of a hotel lobby. Nothing compared to Fan Expo, Comicon, PAX, or COMICUP, or AGS.
