I cosplay, and I regret not taking any decent photos/photoshoots when I'm at a con since those are probably the only times I get to wear that costume. :X

Also, I wish I could meet up with more people! cons just always feel so busy and everyone's doing their own thing.

Not really a regret. More like a "Why me" type of thing.

At ACEN a few months ago, I cosplayed as Kanji and we had an SMT photoshoot outside around noon-ish. Now one of the themes for the shoot was OTP and someone (me) asked to do KanjixYu. So I went up to this Yu and I'm like "Just dip me" for some hilarity". So he dipped me and lifted my leg and, unfortunately the crotch portion of my pants popped. Like it made a *boom* sound effect and everyone started laughing. Even the Yu that was dipping me was trying to hide his smile. Luckily I found someone with a sewing kit who was able to temp patch for me.

Going with someone who doesn't really know about other anime and they're not a gamer or as much of a geek as yourself. If you go with someone who's too shy and doesn't know much about anime or cons it's a bummer since you won't enjoy it as much. I went to a smaller con with one of my besties and we made it really fun even though there wasn't much to do. I wish I did more during the bigger con and bought the Kyubey plushie since I cosplayed as Kyoko Sakura from Puella.

I had a chance to buy SDCC Gohan at Anime Central two years ago for $80... Passed it up because at the time I wasn't making what I am now -_-.

I went to Colossalcon for one day last year, and I went for the wrong reasons. Instead of having fun and taking advantage of everything the con had to offer, I spent the day worrying about a guy who was also there. Big big BIG misstep.

Not anime-related, but I also regret not going to Star Wars Celebration earlier this year. I bought tickets when they went on sale, but had to make the decision between moving into a new place or going to the con. Even though I know I made the right choice, there are still pangs of regret there. :|

I regret not hanging out with the guests after the Con's over on Saturday Night. I hear that they're pretty nice people that'll let anyone chill with them since most of the time they just drink and talk in cartoon voices, well at least they do that here in Lousiana anyway.

One regret........ Otakon 2014.... having shit roommates.
Fixed it in Otakon 2015 I upgraded to better roommates and staying at the Baltimore Hyatt with just points.

In all seriousness having shit roommates cancels out a whole 3 days of fun. Just because people are friends doesn't mean they are people you want to spend the whole weekend away with. I'm not saying don't hang out with them but just don't plan weekend excursions with them.

My biggest regret is losing the one picture of me cosplaying I ever had - of me as Lupin III at Otakon in 2004. Oh well...

I know the feeling re: less than stellar roommates...happened to me at AX last year, though the one friend that was in the room made up for it a little bit as I only see that friend at AX. Anyway, I was with a group where the room leader claimed on a forum post that he never room stuffs. Guess what, I'm in a room with 9 people....yeah, not a good start. Then there was that whole last minute wristband policy the JW Marriott pulled, which somehow the room leader found a way to work around it (not sure, didn't ask). Don't even get me started on the two people in the room that snored LOUDLY all night every night which pretty much kept me awake. Also, there was the cockroach in the bathroom the last night and having to switch rooms at 3 AM when we were checking out a few hours later :/

C2E2 this year. I went with my girlfriend who was completely uninterested in the entire event, and her attitude kind of ruined the experience for me.


Sorry to hear, that sounds like a real bummer.

Bringing my friend to animeFest Dallas back in like 2006 I think.

I was walking and I passed Johnny Yong Bosch. I turn to my friend and say, "Dude! I think that was Vash!" Well apparently I said it loud enough he heard it. I hear Vash yell, "Hey man!" Turn around and he shook my hand and then we just started talking. Asked him about Trigun and VA'ing.

Then my friend opens his mouth...."I loved you as the black ranger." Johnny immediately looked annoyed by the comment. He said he had to run and just left. My friend ruined a great moment for me....asshat.

Biggest regret? Not buying a Kiki's Delivery Service animation cell when I had the money to do so.
