Probably going to go next year, hopefully. *crosses fingers.* I'll have to see what days it is and see if there's things to check out. May or may not cosplay.

I'm going Saturday, but I don't know. Definitely won't be better than Anime Boston or Pax East for me, and probably not better than ACen. I'm not into American culture at all anymore and the anime offerings are dismal at best. Definitely not like NYAF (New York Anime Festival) which comprises a whole day of NYCC (New York Comic Con).

Sorry to hear about detention but as far as if there's something to do there at 4... There's always something to do at ACen. Lol

I'm so happy I got a full weekend pass for Acen. I'm going all three days, and make sure to stay out of trouble. My school doesn't play around with detentions for Fridays. It's three hours and five minutes compare to the 45 minutes for weekdays. Mom told me to just come home on Friday tomorrow, instead of going.
Ummm....I'm going to take you to court!

C2E2 was a lot of fun! I only went today and it was my first time going to this con. I was pleasantly surprised with line management, staff, signage, location, transportation, food vendors...pretty much everything! I had a great time and met up with some awesome people, artists, and actors. I loved the accessibility of a free shuttle bus. That truly made the start of the experience fantastic. When walking in, the building was very clean and had a lot of large banners and signage for panels and other parts of the con. This definitely made it easy as a newbie to get around and find will-call/reg.

Then the dealers hall. Soo many dealers and artists! Oh and huge bathroom signs really make it easy to find a bathroom which is excellent in those omgIgottapee situations. Having so many places to get food was very nice as well. Even if there were only a handful of choices, its still fabulous to have a food court that is decently priced (it is Chicago after all). The panels were set up very nicely and line management was nicely taken care of by staff. All together it was a fantastic experience and I plan on attending next year! I hope everyone who went had a great experience as well. :)

The past two days of C2E2 have been fantastic! Definitely one of the best conventions I've been to. One of my friends didn't get there 'til the afternoon and he was in and out of line in 2 seconds. I even had friends who got there when it opened and they said it took them like 5 minutes to get their badges. I had so much fun meeting guests, hanging out with friends and of course shopping! I got to see Shia LaBeouf too! I can't wait to go back tomorrow and focus on shopping since I got most of the autographs I wanted on Friday. It's going to be amazing! This con is super organized and super friendly. This year was even better than last year and I'll definitely continue to go in the future!

C2E2 is very well organize. It focuses a lot on comic, but it's cool. got to meet a lot of people trying to get off the ground. This lady name Test has this comic about forks. It was so freaking crazy, it's not even funny. The cospaly was good. But the part was the free stuff, organization, and venders. A lot of good crap for good prices. I can't wait until tomorrow. I'm going to try and walk out of there with muiltple shirts.

Suigetsu and I are considering doing a full weekend next year. Probably saving a day for no costume as it was really hard to get around without being stopped for photos.(took us 5 minutes to cross the dealer's room with our costumes off/covered, took us 20 otheriwise) Overall, great organization , friendly staff, and top notch cosplay.
I have very few pictures so if anyone took loads please post links. :x

I have been wanting to try C2E2 for a while now. Is it worth it for an out-of-state person to attend?

Wen't to C2E2 yesterday for the first time. It was actually pretty awesome. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and I'm not even really big into comic books. Got Chad Michael Murrays autograph, spent way too much money on stuff I didn't need, got some sweet pics, had a reasonably priced McDonald's meal, etc. All in all worth the 25 dollar ticket. I'll totally go again next year. Totally!
It won't do any good to delude myself, because even if the distance between us is less than a touch, it is my destiny that I will never have what I long for.
