Durr... I'm absolutely horrible at writing con reports because I tend to go in to ridiculous amounts of detail and talk about people and the time I spent with them... So more like my con adventures rather than a general con reports...

But I have photos! Lots of photos!

Ohayocon 2005 (http://www.ohayocon.com) - January 14 to 16th, Columbus, Ohio: http://www.dragonworldz.net/ohayocon05.html
Anime North 2005 (http://www.animenorth.com) - May 27 to 29th, Toronto, Ontario: http://www.dragonworldz.net/an05.html

Have you been to any conventions this year? AN is local XD Your convention list also says you went to Anime Boston as well as Animazement. How were those conventions? I've never been so I'm just curious if they're worth attending ^_^

Wow you go to a lot of conventions and even the really far ones away! What were Anime Boston and Animazement like this year? And were you at Anime North too as well as NAF this year too? You should try to meet up with us cosplay.com'ers ^_^

So this year alone you've been to Anime Boston, Anime North, Animazement, Anime Expo, NAF, and GCAF? That's so many. I'm jealous!

Well it is alot! I had to work really hard, try really hard not to buy anything all year, and finally I have a car and a licence! So that was the biggest advange yet the hardest even. Anime Boston was nothing like An I do admit. Maybe because I knew no one ^^; But Animazement was killer, I had so much fun. Anime Expo...you haven't been to every con inless you've been there. I didn't like the fact that every where you went a sponsor was shoved in your face...They raised alot of money for charity which was excellent! NAF that was my second time and I had a good time, I didn't get lost this time and I wanted to hang everyone, I was kinda at a lack with my cousin around me, because he KNEW NOTHING...so..well you know tourists. GCAF I met alot of cosplay.comers, plus I met new friends. I don't know if I'll will be going to alot this year coming, but I have my list for sure cons: AN, Animazement, NAF and GCAF. Wootness.

PLus...I didn't buy a thing in any of those con's dealers rooms...^^; I'm such a bugger

... This is a con report thread, aaahahahah.. I read this whole post and it doesn't say anything related to any of the cons mentioned other than general comments that could be used to decribe anything... give us some details so maybe we might attend some of these cons next year.. what were some of the events & people you met at these cons, what do you look forward to seeing in the cons again next year. or what are their key selling points in your eyes?? What makes each of these cons different from each other?? I'm sooo envious you got to go to sooo many!! AHahahahah.. fill us in!!

At the end of the year I'm going to post another Thread for July 1st to December 31st. :) Then we can post the whole second half of the convention year. ^_^ I'll remember you said you had a report when it goes up. ^_^

We need cosplay.com namebadges or something. Of course it's harder to find people too when there is no picture of them in thier profile or gallery.

So this year alone you've been to Anime Boston, Anime North, Animazement, Anime Expo, NAF, and GCAF? That's so many. I'm jealous!

Wow that's impressive. That beats my year this year which was only, Concept, Ad Astra, Anime North, G-FEST, Toronto Trek, NAF, and eventually CNA obviously.

I would have attended Pandemonium but I started my new job that weekend, and I didn't end up going to Worldcon in Scotland because my friends had to drop out due to buisness reasons and we were supposed to be staying with thier family in Scotland.. Bummer.

I never post con reports myself because it's always hoping from con to con too fast. ^_^"

Cheers!

I'm sorry, i might be a compleete ignorant here, but what's a con report???
Is it basically just an article about the con??
Can it be about anything at the con?
Can anyone write one???

:)It's you, writing about your con experience. It can be detailed, like a story, or simple and in point form. It's all about how much you want to write. ^_^
