I actually spent the whole time manning my plushie table..so I can't really comment on the con as a whole. I got to walk around the dealers room for 5 minutes at 4:30, it seemed larger than last year. It didn't seem cattle-pen-ish.
Honestly, I feel a little hurt when people called this con "if you wanna pay $10 to sit around" as I volunteered my time to organize/run the workshop
-- anyways, if you made a Kawaii Christmas tree I hope you had fun!!
