In my first two years I went to conventions, I was really nervous and shy. I even went to those first cons with my friend/sister (but not fan of anime) even though I had fun, I still feel a bit sad. All I did the whole con, is looks through dealers and take pictures of cosplayers. Later, I made friends in high school and they were anime fans. I even got them into cosplaying.
So, I went to a con again with my friends and had a blast! I made friends and contribute a bit in panels! I guess all I need is a little push to socialize whenever I complemented someone's cosplay!
