A lot of them are newer smaller cons

The one in Naperville/Lisle (Anime Midwest) was a 2nd year this year
Anime World Chicago is also a 2nd year con and was held at the same Hyatt as Acen
Kollision Con is in St. Charles, and is I believe the 3rd or 4th year this year
Anime Apocalypse is in Rockford and is a one time only con for the so called "end of the world"
Anime Zap is in Peoria and I think they're in the 4th year. Too far for me to go to though :/

Considering how often someone predicts the end of the world, it seems like Anime Apocalypse should be monthly.

But, seriously, thank you very much for the list. If I had the money, I'd definitely go to Kollision Con.

Kollision Con is a lot of fun. Not sure how far it is from you, but if it's close enough you still have a little time to save some money possibly :/

I am beyond excited for Kollision Con.

Soy-Con in Chicago over the summer was preppy fun as well.

I am not sure if I'll be attending ACEN next year though.

I always seem to be in another state during Soy-Con. Next year...

I was wondering, are any of you going to the cosplay meet ups in Chicago this coming weekend (20-21)? I hear there's a general one on Saturday and for those still in the Hetalia fandom, there's one on Sunday.

I just heard about that meet up this Saturday. I'm not going, but I think a friend of mine may. I'll be at Six Flags instead

Anyone else wanting to go to Six Flags on Saturday and might want to meet up just to say hi, let me know ^.^

Oh, I saw your Kirby Super Star a week or so ago. I was really impressed. I didn't realize you were in Chicago.
