Just got ticket to go to an Anime convention in my state in April! I'm so excited, it's the first one I will have ever gone to! DF and I really need this too..we haven't done anything really fun together in a long time.


Any advice for a first time convention go-er? lol. DF says a lot of people will run up and hug us or something, and everyones super friendly. He's been to a few where he used to live.

 We will be going to our third one in April....the time we went I was pretty nervous, but it was awesome!!

Yes everyone was very friendly...and would pose for pics if asked. I love going!!! Our daughters love it too, they went to their first one I Sept,  of 2009. Their fave was SakuraCon last April, we went for two days, and they had a blast!!

Ooohhh... are you gonna cosplay? I love going to cons! I'm going to three this year. Two anime cons and one steampunk one. People are generally very nice, but sometimes you get some real losers who try to ruin the fun. I just ignore those people and/or laugh at them. I've started taking a can of Febreeze with me though. By Saturday night some people start getting stinky. A few people keep their costumes on all weekend long without showering. Plus, all the pocky and ramune doesn't always agree with some people and the smells those people produce are just nasty. Sooo... you may want to put some febreeze in your bag. ; )

Have fun, and take lots od pictures :D

How old are your daughters? My DS is 3 and DD is 1..I'm pretty sure my mom is going to watch them that weekend lol. They'd probably love it, but DF and I really want to enjoy it, and there's no way the kids can handle being out most the time like we will be. I cant wait to go!! I hope you have fun at the next one you go to!

Husband and I went to the first one by ourselves (to see what it was all about) and then we took the girls to the next one. They were 10 and 5 but that was more of a gamer con...so they were pretty bored and we left early, not much to do. Then we took them to the anime one that we had gone to before. They loved it!!! There was stuff for them to do, and way more to look at watch. We had gotten the three day pass, so we took our oldest (they youngest was way to pooped the first day) back the next day and we were there aaaaalllllll day, we stayed for the concert that night too.

We saw a lot of really little kids there too. All dressed up even, way cute. You wil have blast!! We love them...
