Akicon 2012... as a helper for my artist friend. It was my first time going to that convention. Clearly, it was the best year to go for artist alley *sarcasm*.

Fandom regret? Not buying prints from an artist one year at Sakura-Con. I thought I had the chance next year, but she got hired to draw for the fandom. She hadn't shown up at the convention since. I'm still crying over it.

Biggest regret? Last year, Sakura-con. Three days of convention turned into five days (Wednesday to Sunday) and I had only a compilation of 9 hours of sleep. I took on too many responsibilities and that cost me. Staffing, artist alley, driving, and participating in a cosplay group. I spent more time trying to stay awake and not feel frustrated at the chaos that was happening with the cosplay group. I was only able to hold it together because of the encouragement of my co-staffers. Never again.

My biggest regret was at Anime Midwest 2013. Not gonna go into it but due to a lot of drama (some of it stemming from Acen 2013 as well) and the months in between. I ended up ending my friendship with my best friend at the time. Wish I could fix it

I think this goes for every con I've been to:

I rarely go to panels. It's not because I don't want to, the people I'm with don't want to go. They only want to go to the Merchant Hall and the Artist alley. Then we end up walking around and just people watch.

Hopefully that'll change this year at SDCC. My boyfriend actually wants to go to panels, and since we got all 4 days we'll have time to go to a few :3

Too scared to talk to Shikarius. Procrastinated too much to make shoots.

AnimeFest 2013: for not fastening my cosplay wig better before I went for Saturday. It was sliding all over the place, and was horrible. And to make things worse, it was an 100 cm wig and was super heavy!

Two years ago at AX (Anime Expo) I was going off "To the club" (HA. more like just a room with a DJ.)
Forgot my ID for once that time. Remember your ID!
I went back to my hotel and texted my friend inside telling them I failed only to get a reply back of
"Are you stupid?? Don't forget I'm a staff member!"


Rule two: Use your connections.

Anime Central last year my buddies and I drank way too much on Friday night (still had a great time) but our hangovers the next day prevented us from going to a couple panels that we really wanted to go to. We eventually made it out and all but I will not be having a repeat of that this year.

My main regret is to only ever look for people I know rather than socializing with new people.

Granted, reason why I usually don't talk to strangers during a con is because I want to respect people's personal space; if they're just walking around and minding their business, I don't like to feel like I'm intruding.

Biggest regret would have to be not taking enough pictures and/or selfies of myself with epic cosplays.

At this past Ikkicon, their were other Blue Exorcist cosplayers and I didn't get to take photos with them. Kind of regret not doing that, I mean we had other reasons as to why, but still I would of liked to at least have taken some sort of photos with them.

Not going to Anime Weekend Atlanta to see KatoFuku a couple weeks ago. I live in CA and my left brain keeps telling me that it would've been a waste of money (esp. since I had some dental work to do around that time, and I'm actually going to visit family on the East Coast this month), while my right brain keeps saying I could've made it work for something I really would've liked to see (and now I'm not sure if I ever will, since KatoFuku doesn't seem to be a big act). Of course, my left brain also says I might've chickened out since I can get nervous meeting someone special.

Of course, with my luck it might be like my second-worst con experience, when I went to AX last year (a day trip for me) to see Urobutcher...and arrived late. Of course, I had that aforementioned nervousness, and when I looked at the clock I was actually a bit relieved. But yeah, those lines are frigging long. AX could learn a thing or two about crowd control.
