After a fun filled 3 days of ACen, its back home to Chi-town. Its not over for me just yet. I plan to go to Youmacon in October. I would like to go to more cons, but I am saving up for my trip to Niagara Falls, and a pair of glasses. So what's next for you guys? Anymore cons after this? Or just R & R with friends?

Youmacon sounds interesting unfortunately I'll be back in school by that time. I'm definitely planning on going to Soycon 3, though I wish I knew of more midwestern cons, especially over the summer.
Excuse me while I slip into something a little more Freudian.

I need to find a con for my fall/winter fix.

One a year is not enough for a guy like me. I like being around like-minded people so often.

I'm really sad that it's over already, I planned for the whole weekend; Being there from the very opening to the very end. But a lot of things went wrong :/
I may be going to Ikasucon or IowaCon, but I need finances first >_>

I'm not sure of my next con ... I know I plan on going to Youmacon since it's in my birthday month and the event includes my favourite holiday -- so, I think it's a must attend ... I'm putting my time off request in tomorrow at work.

I have you all to thank for my new addiction ... I must say. This was my second ACen. Each year - I enjoy it more, everyone is SO GREAT.

I know I want to attend Otakon at some point too.

I am planning on attending Kollisioncon -- whether or not I can is another matter.
I don't care if you ARE the chosen one, this adventure requires PANTS.

Thanks for the link. I'll definitely be checking out KollisionKon and Anime Zap! I really wasn't aware that there'd be so many in IL. Kinda new to this. May check out Ikasucon and Gen Con. IN not that bad a trip...

Never been to Comic Con but I've heard the line-up and guests are supposed to be really good this year. TARDIS seems interesting, too. LOVE Torchwood, but haven't gotten on Dr. Who so much. I'm a sucker for the Ianto-Jack bromance.

This was my first Anime Convention, and I had so much fun. ;_; I can't wait til' next year!

P.S. What made my day Saturday was on Saturday...This was kinda freaky, but me and my sister was sitting by the wall by the consession area, and we're talking about all the cool cosplay we've seen so far. So all the sudden I say, "What would make my day would be someone doing a Jareth cosplay. *sighs wishfully*" All the sudden my sister gasps, and points to the left, and there was a Jareth cosplayer! He was so awesome he was even able to do the crystal ball trick!

For those that don't know who jareth is, he's from the Labyrinth movie. He's the Goblin King, and David Bowie plays him!~

I will probably be going to SoyCon, since I can't go to any cons while I'm in school (There are none in the Maritimes, except in July when I am not there).

Granted it's on the same days, 362 days left until Acen 2011. 365 days from now and we'd be talking about Acen being over again. :P

But seriously...I've got the post-Acen blues over here.

Probably no more cons this year. I have to figure out exactly what to send a certain person for her birthday in July. :thumbup:

No idea really. Two weeks of vacation time available so we'll see.

The end of ACEN sucks because it means work the next day for me.
