I just discovered there is a convention for Yaoi and Bara. I just adore Boy's Love!! Has anyone been? What did you think? What all can you buy there? Is the merch itself worth going for? Please share! Squee!

Some parts of anime community can be pretty fucked up.

This is just an outcast convention

I've wanted to go for 5+ years but be it money or not being able to get the time off it hasn't been possible and this year is also looking pretty bad for attending. That being said pretty much every con is cringy af if you look around just have to accept some people are going to be like that and there is also a good side to the cons.

I do agree that it looks a little questionable. I'd honestly only go for merchandise, I avoid cosplay, as I'm somewhat of a perfectionist about costume, and the look of the person in the costume. But the fans must be free to dress as the characters they choose, so I just keep quiet and try not to judge. We all are dorky enough as it is, and added guilt trips are never appreciated!! lol

All parts of the human world are going to have an f'd up component. That is how humanity operates? lol

^,^ it's a lot of fun! Yaoi-con has been around since 2001! I usually find a few things to buy. However, if you want deals I find way more things online. I go for the inspiration where I see something there and then check online to see if it cheaper lol. Sometimes dealers are just trying to move their products along and sell stuff for really low pricing on the last day. If you want to get in for free or at a reduced price I suggest volunteering for a few hours 7 or 12 for a free pass. You can become a staff member if you do 20 hours. I can't make it this year since I went to the Anime expo in LA and will be going to comic-con San Diego (too many conventions ) hopefully I can attend next year~

Maybe if there is a lot of traps I'd go but otherwise I'm not a fan of yaoi
