My first convention was called Ichiban, funnily enough. It was in Sweden, where I'm from originally.

I was something like 23, and it was Shuto Con in Lansing Michigan. Unfortunately as of 2020 it's a dead con though.

First con was Anime Midwest 2 years ago. I was 21 years old. Being that it was my first con, I didn't go in cosplay. I was way too much of greenhorn to know that if you're going to cosplay, it might as well be at an anime con. I wanted to believe me, but I didn't. I did the year after tho.

The location was amazing. It was at a convention center in Rosemont, IL and it was packed with all these people, most of them cosplayers. The dealer's room wasn't as big as most other cons, but it was still pretty good and it had a lot of stuff you could buy and look at for fun. It had a game room, a rave, and of course, a cosplay contest. The panels were awesome and so were the special guests. The ConSweet was the best thing about it though - unlimited ramen was the bomb!

Been going every year since and it's only gotten better!

That first year will always be the most memorable tho. I went there with a bunch of friends, who ended up being a rotating roster in the years that followed because some of them got jobs and had families. We danced it up at the raves and finished every night drinking with strangers in our hotel room. It was awesome.

Hmm I can't remember which was my first, all I remember is that I wore a black morphsuit dressed as one of the Jackie's from the manga Ratman and felt very very naked.

Dunno if it counts, but I was at MCM Comic Con in 2015, which has been my one and only convention I've been to! Was pretty cool, didn't really have time to look around much, because I was actually on a school trip at that point haha, so it was pure randomness that my trip was exactly on the day of the con. Bought the tickets when I arrived 1 day later, just to check it out
