Well, Megacon's a great place to start. It's huge and the amount of cosplay there is just staggering!

Just a note, though, after seeing some comments that came about after last year: Megacon is not an anime/video game-exclusive convention. It's a mixed bag, with comics, sci-fi/fantasy, toys, anime, video games, roleplaying games, multi-media, etc etc. Thus, it doesn't have all the same types of panels and events as anime conventions. This seemed to upset a few people last year. =( Megacon caters well to its huge community, though, so you're sure to find something to interest you~

This will only be my third Megacon, but I guess I can still say: Welcome to the insanity! :3

Grats on your first convention! ^3^
Megacon was my first convention last year, and imo it's a great one to start out with, even if it's a bit big.

Hope to see you there!

First Megacon for me (about the 5th for my accompanying friend) and 3rd convention all together. It was loads of fun- I got a ton of pictures taken of me but I can't seem to find WHERE they are -__-'

I was Hermione Granger-linkages are in my signature.

Actually I am planning on attending A-Kon this May(?) and having my friend come stay with me for it this time x3 I'd probably still use my Hermione Granger costume too..I love it so much :K even though A-Kon is mainly Anime I honestly don't care- I want to wear that costume again :3

Woahwoahwoah dude.

Okay, so I just moved to Florida from San Diego having attended Anime Expo and Comic Con and other little tiny cons. I stopped cosplaying for a while. Like a bout a year or so to focus more on my studies but now that i lack a social life, I figured might as well spend more time cosplay. I'm planing on finishing my Metis cosplay! (Persona 3). I'll probably be going alone and I think it'd be cool if we could get a photo together.

I'm pumped now. I gotta make it. >:]

Megacon was my 3rd convention but my first BIG one (my previous two being Houkocon and Janicon). I rarely get time off for conventions but no matter what, I ALWAYS get the weekend off for Megacon. It's my yearly vacation! ^^
The atmosphere there is amazing, just seeing a mixture of different genres, both in the volunteers/dealers and the attendees.
You'll have a good time there, most definitely.

Totally beastly! <3

I had an Aegis cosplay but all my old cosplays I gave away because well, they weren't that great. Haha! I would LOVE to get pics with you. I don't know anybody else who's going so I'm all up for making new friends. >:3

This will be my first American convention, coming down all the way from Ontario, Canada. I don't know anyone from this area.. or food places so if anyone can point me in a direction of cheap food or place to chill. I'll be cosplaying as Rebecca Chambers from Resident Evil Zero; leather outfit. I am in the area on vacation and saw the con on at the same time. I'm only going for the Saturday.

IF the weather's nice and you don't mind walking, there's plenty of restaurants near the convention center. South of the center has Denny's, Red Lobster, and McDonald's. Walk North and you'll find even more stuff. The convention center's on International Drive, which is the tourist trap road. It all depends on how far you're willing to walk.

If the weather's bad or you don't feel like walking, they have a few concession stands open that sell your typical burger and fries (about $10 for a burger, fries, and soda)... Not the best but it's convient.
