I've been contemplating going to a con for about a year now. I've been into anime for awhile, but I grew up around ppl that didn't even know what the word meant. Well, there was this one dude that was only interested in Inuyasha, but other than that he didn't like anything else. It would just feel sad going to some event all alone; thats what's been holding me back from going to a con.

lol! i'm a camera whore. i carry it with me everywhere, and at cons, it's an otakuden free-for-all. i literally take hundreds of pics, with at least 90% of that being cosplayers.

totally understandable, especially if it's your first con. after going to a few, going alone isn't as daunting as it initially sounded. but as a first con, that can be intimidating to anybody.

it depends on the con and con-goers, but it can sometimes be rather easy to meet/make new acquaintances and friends at a con. even when you know nobody, there is one thing you know, everyone who you see is there because they enjoy anime.

if you ever make Anime Weekend Atlanta a destination of yours, i'll be there smile

amazingly enough, i'm usually the shy/quiet/keeps to herself kinda gal, but to balance that out, when it's something i'm super-excited about, watch out. it be a full on otaku geek explosion laugh

well, if u ever feel like giving AWA a try, let me know smile

I am pretty much the type of person who would rather rip my nails off then actually go do something new. *thinks of Higurashi no naku koro ni* But I was practically dragged to my first con and I have gone every year after to Naka-Kan. I am still not going to cos-play, but I do enjoy looking at the others who do. Some of those are REALLY well done.

*shivers* wow, I need to get that out of my head. So painful to watch.
