I know that some of you have gone to this in the past or have intentions of coming in the future. It is an awesome con and well worth the trip to Troy.I thought I'd start this topic up to inspire the doubting to attend and allow the rest of us to rave about it's greatness.

Wow, that sucks. I will probably go to Youmacon though. Mainly because it like right in my backyard, lol. But it was also a good time. Hopefully that doesn't affect attendance though.... I really want to see this con take off.

Do they really fall on the same date?!Outrage!.....I think I'll go to Youmacon,even though Reactor has moved out of Purple...for which we are all grateful I'm sure.
I really want to support Youma, it being a third year con, they always have excellent guests and a great atmosphere.
I'm not too worried about Reactor for the fact that it's attendees are so loyal that they stick around even through the Purple insanity-I'm sure they'll attend now that there has been an upgrade.

I've been a Youmacon AMV Staffer since the start and I've had a blast with it! It's the home of the The AMV Wars: Iron AMV and we always have an awesome show planned out for the attendees. Don't forget to stop in to see us during the con! Watch great AMVs; get free swag! Audience participation is mandatory (Have Fun!). ;)

I'm sure I'll do Youmacon again this year. Its fairly close to my house and I'm sure most of my friends will hit Youma over reactor and thats really what matters to me.

Even though Reactor is sort of my home town con, and like a good amount of peeps know who I am... I have to go to YoumaCon cause I'm helping out with there.... Videography department.. or whatever it's call... Just say I'm filming the con... And for the peeps who knows what I did at YoumaCon last year, I'm doing it again this year.... And hopefully with a better camcorder, and probably have a "host"......

It'll be nice if I can drag my (still being built/planned) ACen MKIII Supra to YoumaCon... But I don't want to risk my 7M engine being messed up along the way.... So, I have to wait till "next time" I get another money for a new/used engine....

I've been going to YoumaCon since it opened and I'll continue to go to YoumaCon. I LOVE that convention, it's the first convention that's close to me. ^__^ I don't even have to stay at an Inn to get there in time!

I also have attended Youma since it opened. Heck I know a lot of the people on staff... >> I know I will be running some panels this year again. It's like 20 min from my house (seriously, without freeways!) and it would be a crime not to attend. Several people would kick my butt if I didn't go.

YOU ALL NEED TO FREAKIN' ATTEND LIVE ACTION MARIO PARTY!!! Both the day one and if you're old enough the 18+ one!! It's absolutely hysterical!! I will once again be the awesome spazzy fangirl that I am to entertain you all! X3 ATTEND OR I SMOTE YOU! Bwuahahahaha!

I'll be attending this con for the first time. Hotaru invited me to go so I'm taking up that offer and do it. Who knows, I'll probably do a skit at Youma.

Depending on work, I might go to Youmacon. A few of my friends are trying to convince me to go. And I figured if I have the money and can get off work, I will attend.

I'll be hitting Youmacon for sure since it's only an hour drive from home AND everyone I pretty much know will be attendign the con, so it's a big party and last con of the year for me. That and I got a Star Wars Photoshoot to run Friday so that's gonna be fun. Just debateing If I want to do any panels for Youma.

Oh and Soulcrash! If you liked my homemade Pretzel's I fed to you and Doug last year I'll bring you some for Acen and Youma again! ;-)

No way! Reactor and Youmacon are really on the same dates this year? That sucks ;_;

I'll probably go to Youmacon since it gives me a chance to visit a friend, and because...last year's Reactor experience wasn't so pleasant lol. And because there were like no Gothic/Lolita events at Youmacon so I have to bring some there :x

Ugh, I just came to a sad sad realization. That I probably will be unable to do youmacon D:. College, ick..My first year, and I am going to a somewhat prestigious art college her in cincy, so the likelyhood of me having little work is slim to none .


This makes me incredibly sad D:

I and the rest of the family will certainly be there. I really enjoyed the con suite: I do hope they have it again this year!!! For us it's a ten hour drive (oy vey!) but very much worth it!!!! Wouldn't miss it for anything!

To MBluesummers: I'd say going to a good college far outweighs the con. Good for you!!! (but we will miss you!)

<< Host of Live Action Mario Party at Youmacon. It was seriously one of the funnest things I've done in my entire life. The crowd was great, and enthusiastic about the crazy butt games we made them do.

Don't even get me started on Mario Party: After Dark. That was a dirty dirty adult themed game.... corn, bagles, baby oil, tea bags..... you do the math... God. I LOVE Youmacon!! This year was one of my best convention experiences.

Youmacon was seriously awesome this past year-I just wish that this year it did'nt fall on the same weekend as Reactor.Since Reactor has moved out of the purple hell hole I was actually considering going-but I love Youma too much to miss it.
