hi... I am new to this forum... and I have never been to Yaoi-con before... It is going to be on my birthday this year... and I was wondering... are there usually any guys that go because they like yaoi... or do they all go because their significant others dragged them there??? I was just wondering because I wanted to know if I would be the only guy who liked it...

There's both guys that enjoy yaoi that go, and guys that were dragged by friends/girlfriends/whatever. :P
You aren't the only guy that likes it. Don't worry about it. Go and enjoy yourself. ^_~

Kool... Well... from what I've heard, it is a lot of fun... what have your experiences been?
I can't wait.

I only went back in 2001 when it was a brand new con.. But it was all really friendly and fun! Cozy and happy and all that.. Great panels and people that all love yaoi, or don't mind it and can have fun with the idea. :P I didn't bother to go last year, but I intend to go this year. ^^

kool... Well I hope to see you there... are you cosplaying... if so, who are you going as?

I know there are guys who go, though they are a significant minority, and a few DO like yaoi.
I'm actually going to have a pretty high concentration of males in my group of y-con first-timers this year.
4 total, if all goes well.
Two of them are yaoi lovers. The other two aren't as into the whole yaoi scene (they like anime and are an item, but the concept of gay romances mostly written by women kind of freaks them out).
More males to this event would be awesome ^^

The group I hung out with at YaoiCon 2001 was mostly male. ^_^; But none of them were really into it; they just liked joking around.
dman ~ Err, I haven't decided on my cosplay yet.. if I friend from Oklahoma visits for the event, I'll be Billy Kane from Fatal Fury/KOF.. if not, I'll probably be Zell from FF8.. or K' from KOF.. or T.M.Revolution.. haha yeah, no decisions made yet.

hehehehehe... kool... I am designing an original costume... and I hope it goes over well... also my friend and I are planning on going as kohaku and koryyu from wish. I am hoping to meet a lot of people... but whatever happens happens, you know...

My husband is not himself a Yaoi fan, but he went with me (and cosplayed), and found the convention sufficiently entertaining. ^^
Yes, some guys go to Yaoi-con too, although women are the majority. Gay guys, Bi guys, open-minded Straight guys, guys who go with with women (or are looking to pick up women!).... ^^

~Michi... I just looked at your gallery, and I love your kuja. He is so sexy, and you pull him off beautifully. My friend wants to go as him for this up and coming yaoi-con. She want's me to go as Trance Kuja... I'm not so sure about that one...
Anywho...What do you think....
04-05-2003, 12:02 AM
I think it is kool that guys will go all the way to a con to support their girls. It's so cute.

Thankye dman. ^^ I keep wanting to wear Kuja to YaoiCon, but.. I didn't make it last year and this year.. I don't think it'll be in good enough shape to bring. Ah well.
04-05-2003, 12:28 AM
awwww...... I want to see it.... You should try to wear it... but if it isn't in good enough shape then... well... guess you can't... oh well.
