We drove 6 hours, and it was still worth it. A little small but meh, who cares? I still think it was definitely a lot of fun!

Shoujocon is a lot of fun, especially if you are really into shoujo stuff. (If you are not, only go if you are like really nearby or really bored, lol ^_^)

I've been to Shoujocon, Otakon, and Katsucon, and I've found Shoujocon had less to do than Otakon, but more to do than Katsucon.

But the main plus of Shoujocon is that because its small, it's very friendly, so the disscussion panels and stuff are fun, while at big cons I'd never go to them due to fanboy-phobia @_@ Its very nice because you can just start talking to anyone around you, it is like everyone is friends :D I think that's the strong point of Shoujocon!!!!!

Shoujocon is awesome, it was my 1st con and I absolutly loved it. Their could have been a bit more to do. My friends and I had alot of downtime and were bored for a bunch of the time. But when we were doing things it was super great. I feel so poor... oh well its all good! Oh my 'friend' Ed, was making fun of me for spending tons of money on "stupid porno japanese cartoon shit" and I got super mad at him and im going to tie him up and drag him with me next year so he wont make fun of me... cause I know hell like it. *snickers* or if he doesnt... *makes a fist then smiles cutely* nah just playin round, hell like it though... I think their should be 2 shoujocons a year! YAY!!!

I really liked it but from last year's reports I asmumed nobody would know any other animes besides ones on TV. -_- I dressed as Sailor Mars because of that and I saw a ton of other cosplayers. I should have gone as Anna from Shaman king or Ranma.... -_-;
Oh well. Always next year

Shoujocon was fun. Of course, I did not need the hellish Friday flights, but otherwise I had a great time. My favorite part was Parliament. It was my second year going to Shoujocon, and I had as much fun as last year if not more.

Shoujocon is my favorite con because it's so nice and small. You canalways (usually) get into any event or veiwing without worrying your head off about getting ther an hour ahead of tim to get seat ^^ PLus you get to know so many cool and intresting new people Its definitly more friendly than any other cn. I know I act totally off teh wall there but at bigger cons I'm much more timid. I don't even know how I hd the nerve to jump up on stage an ddance with Pirotess -_-;;;

XD XD XD XD That was so hysterical!! You guys were awesome.

Shoujocon was my first con, and I LOVED it. There wasn't much to do, but there was enough to keep you occupied for a long time, but you could still go relax and read manga. When there was boredom in the air, my friends and I pow-wowed on the floor outside the Dealer Room exit and sang anime tunes at the top of our lungs. XD A few people joined in our version of "Cruel Angel's Thesis" XD XD

Narrowing down my favorite parts of the con is quite difficult.... the Gravitation marathon was bloody AWESOME! I was near crying when I found out that they were showing it--- I dragged my friends furry little asses over there and made them watch it. Oh well... they're both addicted. Even my male friend. XD

But the cosplay was so COOL! I actually met my love interest there. XD [She was one of the Rabi~en~Rose cosplayers]. And I chatted with so many awesome people.... the skits were amazing [Angel Sanctuary: a game the whole family can play!!] And did I mention that the Toby was *HOT*? The filler competition was *hysterical*... I have been quoted using the famous Duo Maxwell pickup line "Nice Gundam. Let's screw." And it was a lot of fun making a fool of myself onstage- panty shots for all! XD [my dress was SHORT] o.O But I tripped onstage. *le sigh* Memories. ^^

So I really do recommend Shoujocon- ish so wonderful!!! And its just OOZING with Gravitation cosplayers. If that doesn't convince you, you're hopeless. =p


tehe. Kidding. ^^

oo-hoo! I feel mad loved. XD Unless, of course, you fell for another rabbit-eared idol. ;_;

But really. Shoujocon rocked my damn socks. It really, really did. The only cons I've gone to have been shoujocon 01 and 02. It was funfun sillywilly, and I really like the smallness of the con. It's so much more cozy. n___n I recommend it. :D

I was one of the Rabi~en~Roses. :P I'm short, I wear glasses. I doubt it'd ring a bell. *laughs* But, yes. I was in the cosplay, *and* I sang karaoke on Sunday. :P That's when you made fun of me. ;_;

::laughs:: Looks like I'll have to work on my Közi [Malice Mizer... Le Ciel video] and Shuichi [banana] outfits much harder to win that plushie, eh? ^^ mmm... Közi.... mmm... Shuichi...

This will be a great con, it will. Ranma has power, Aeva and Tea-chan can go con-ing together, costumes will be spiffed up, and the Mokona plushie shall be rewarded to a deserving cosplayer!! =D

Um.. cute little pygmy possum. Can you see why I might have thought it was a mousie? ;)

I won't be attending Shoujocon again nxt year. It was a little too small and "quiet" to make the drive worth it for me.

I'm sorry. But like everyone else, I don't have unlimited time or money for cons, and I need to make choices based on what I want to get out of them. This year I hit mostly small cons, and I enjoyed them mostly because I was with friends, not so much because of the cons themselves. Next year I'd like to hit mostly larger ones - A-Kon, because my best friend lives in Dallas; Otakon, because it's the largest con on the East Coast; and Anime Boston, because I don't have to travel to get there.

I wasn't knocking your decision. ^^ I know how you feel. ^^ I want to do 6 cons, but I may not...

It still bugs me that I hit you with a cheap pick up line, plus gave you a prize for the Karoke and yet didn't even know it was you. >__<
