Don't worry sweet cheeks, I never send the same joke twice. I can promise it will be greater than last year. By the way, your sis said you never used the stuff I sent you last year. How rude.

The only con that's for sure for me is ACen. Still kicking around ideas for other cons.

It's way too early to start thinking about other cons. I really want to go to youmacon, but that depends on monies and time. kollisioncon should be on the list.

So far I'm just considering SoyCon and KollisionCon. If Reactor happens this year, maybe, despite how small it is.

My plan is sleeeep...
As far as cons, I might go to Wizard World or Chicago Tardis next but it depends. I usually end up missing WW for one reason or another. I can pretty much only go to things that are in Chicagoland at this point.

The only other cons I'll for sure be going to this year are Wizard World and Midwest Furfest.

I'm starting to lose interest in traveling out of state for cons. So thats it for anime centric cons till next ACen.

Yea, I know its like a whole differant world when we are there, and there soo much to do there and such a large space to play in, but it feels like its over before it really gets started, like when you are on vacation for a week and you are finaly getting to the really good stuff, except that right before you reach fever pitch its like OOOO "your times up game over". :angry:

I will be going to ikasucon and epic yay for the three of you like gadgets that are planning on comming, and Gadgets you know who I am, I am the guy that met up with you and mandy lynn on the thursday for ikasucon last year with my friend for the evening for my birthday.

You know I met up with you guys and we hung out with others like dusty, and pinky the short girl with the princess peach crown that was there on thursday.

I loved the rabid panda slippers by the way when you were there, though I did not see you at acen and I was all over the place there.

See you there

I'm trying to see if I can swing by Youmacon and maybe Ohayocon again. Money is obviously a huge factor... But they're up there.

Dunno if I'll go to Chicago Comic Con AKA Wizard World or Kollisoncon yet. Maybe for one day only if I do.

ACen was my first Con ever and I enjoyed it very much. Everything I anted to do in such a small place. I also had never been to a four star hotel before, so that too was pretty awesome. I live in Detroit and Youmacon will be held right down the street from me. I plan on attending that one and working on my cosplay for ACen next year.

just an FYI...reactor has died. appearantly there was some sort of breakdown last year with the management staff, don't know all the details, but from what i've heard the convention no longer exists.

also, did anyone else see the guy outside the convention center saturday evening, holding up t-shirts that said "it's over 8000!" ??? as i was walking by, i said EPIC FAIL! and the guy shouted back at me EPIC WIN! and i said NO, FAIL! EVERYONE KNOWS IT'S OVER 9000!
it made me giggle ^.^;

Well my next con, I'm helping a friend with. I guess it's called Steampunk, and it's in Michigan. So that's where I'll be going at the end of the month. Sadly with all my money spent, I won't be buying anything from there. :(

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!~

THAT WAS ME! it was so much fun to do jareth. i love the looks on peoples faces when they say "well can you do the ball trick" and i do it. this was the first time coming to acen and the first time ive done jareth but after the reaction i got here its certainly not going to be the last

Yea I know its rough, getting depressed about the con being over quick, and even the longer ones like gencon that last for like 6 days it dont seem enough with all the new friends you make, but all things are in passing remember its the ties that bind its the people that make it happen and make it worth wild.

The con itself is just a medium its the people and how they put the con on or treat you that make the con good, and just remember just because its over and some of us no most of us are geeks that can at times have trouble in the social world that dont understand us, does not mean we have to say goodbye we live in a world ruled by twitter and the internet and do forget instant messaging where people are only a click away though not all relationships or friendships last for long times but its the thought that counts and carrying on friendships after the con can help wean you off of it and ease the pain of leaving.

I too met lots of you people out there but I wont remember your names I will remember what you looked like and where I met and talked with you though so if you can remember what we talked about I can remember you all much more easy.

and who was the old guy teaching go in the game room, as well as the guy that was doing cosplay photos for free so he could have stuff for his portfolio on friday night, he was really nice.

O and suku I saw you sitting in the chair by the redbar, and asked if it was a real glass orb approaching you from your right side, if you remember yea that was me in the black shirt and jeans.

And even though it's a little later, I want to go to Ohayocon~
