Just being able to be myself and not having people fully judge. It's all for the fun of the convention!

I get a thrill every time someone asks for my picture-it's just so flattering I also love meeting my favorite voice actors. I usually try to act all cool and collected, but I inevitably turn into a giggling pile of fangirl goo.

There were a few really big moments for me. My favorites would have to be:

1) Driving down to the Baltimore Convention Center for my first Otakon (and first anime convention) and just seeing the huge amount of cosplayers and people in line to get in. I had a huge, HUGE smile.

2) Walking into the dealer's room for the first time. My mind, it was blown.

3) Winning in my category of the AMV contest at Otakon last year. I was so excited just because it had gotten in, I didn't care if I won or not, but the fact that it did made me pretty much scream and jump up and down like I'd won the lottery. (First time doing so, too)

and finally,

4) Meeting my current girlfriend. This happened in '08 at my first Otakon, and both of us were taken at the time, so we had no idea that we were eventually going to get together, but we met in line and chatted for an hour and a half or so, and I found her later in the fall/winter on DeviantArt. We met up again at Otakon '09, and later that August I worked up the courage and asked her out. Been together a year and a half now.
Thus do we invoke the Machine God. Thus do we make whole that which was sundered.

I have two

1) When you start getting close to the convention and you start freaking out because you see people in bright pink wigs and crazy costumes

2) Having conversations with random people in character. It always makes my day when Im Orihime and Im explaining to Aizen why Im not currently captured ^_^

1) Meeting new friends at con then meeting them later outside or people you meet elsewhere and have a 'OMG you go to con too!' moment with them.

2) Meeting voice actors for the first time. When my first con showed the subbed ver of Fullmetal Alchemist the movie. Vic was there, my first time meeting him, and I got to ask 'Does Al become taller than Ed?' and he gave me a short rant. That was far better than any thing he could have signed for me >< First time meeting va for Vincent, he was singing ; I'm to sexy'...Well first impressions are the lasting

3) My first PDA with my Bf. My bf and I tend to keep private, though we did meet at a con... We bonded through the trails and tribulations of staffing a convention, ended u texting each other, then he tricked me into admitting I'd go on a date with him.... fast forward a few months at a con, some dude was hitting on me and my bf well put a claim on me... It made me feel over the moon that hey they are slutty girls all around but he wants the crossplaying girl. ><

First I love when someone asks to take my picture. It's just nice to have someone like what you've done.

And second, at Anime North, when I realized that big cons can be just as friendly as small cons. I was so nervous to talk to people at first because it's a big con in a big city, but I was happy to find out that everyone was super nice and easy to talk to. A bit of a relief.

Hmmm... I really like the masquerade ball at Sakuracon. I love ballroom dancing and the masks are so fun. I try to go with my sister every year, but I don't think I'll be able to this year.
