I'm lucky enough to live in the town where Finlands major anime convention, Desucon is hosted. :3
Desucon is hosted here twice per year and the place is VERY close to my home, so travelling won't be a problem.
But I'm still unsure how my parents will act when I tell them that I'm going to Desucon & dressing up as Grell Sutcliff, because they know NOTHING of anime. (Although my dad likes Studio Ghibli movies. owo)
