I actually attended ACEN in 2010. It was my first anime convention ever and I really just walked around to take it all in. I'm turning 24 this year, and since I went to college out of state, I don't really have friends my age in this state anymore. I might be getting a job that would allow me to move to Canada sooner than I was hoping, so I really want to make ACEN 2012 count. Due to other obligations, I was unable to attend this year (so disappointed about that). However, I'm making arrangements to be sure I can be there next year. You might recognize this alias since I've used it for years on other social networking sites. I only watch a handful of anime (mostly older ones on repeat), but I've been following the East Asian music scene since 2005. I'm from the Chicago suburbs (in the process of moving from one suburb to another at the moment). I've never cosplayed before, but am considering doing one on Saturday next year as Chell from Portal 2 (I have a thing for boots and the long-jumping boots were what got me interested in the game to begin with).

So yeah...I'm into videos games and East Asian cultures in general. I also have an online craft business on Etsy. Otherwise, I have all sorts of interests and obsessions. Just ask and I'll be sure to share (if it's reasonable). I'm online a lot, so hopefully I get to know at least some of you well in time for next years ACEN so I have people to meet up with possibly.

I think Toronto has one coming up pretty soon but I haven't actually looked too much into it but I've been thinking about going to that one.

Ciao e benvenuti al forum!!!

Yeah if you cannot make ACEN 2012, or if you can (which would be awesome ^_^) but also can go to another con if you move to Canada, I would check out Anime North. Like all others that have posted I have heard great things about it, and one of my good friends went there and he said it was one of the best cons he's ever been to and said it was such a blast. :D Again welcome!

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I'll be sure to check out Anime North if I have the chance. I'm actually packing for a trip to Quebec next week, so sorry for the delay in replying to you all!

Welcome! I also attended 2010, but couldn't make it this year, so we definitely need to do it big in 2012!!!
