Pete and I have our plane tickets and we're ready! Here's hoping we can get our enormous wigs packed. XD

Will be there as well. Reduced (Pocky) range I am afraid (can only carry so much on the plane and don't have time to drive down), but I will be there.

Sooooooooo... what did everyone think?

I don't think anything is ever going to top AVCon '06 (how awesome was it?!)... but I was kind of hoping for more fun than '07, and honestly, I don't think it delivered.

I don't know whether it was because the crowd was new/different or what, but AVCon this year seemed to lack the enthusiasm that I usually love about it. I certainly don't blame the organisers for that - AVCon is like THE best run con in Australia! But... where were all the cosplayers on Saturday?! I felt over-dressed... it was like stepping back into '02! XD

For my first time at AV-Con it was pretty good, but my main gripe is that the university this year was a bunch of stuck up arseholes. With dumping the no food sales on the con the evening before it (which was way too late for me to cancel my pocky shipment down to the con). A little more notice would have been nice. But that wasn't the organizers fault, they argued till they where blue in the face for us and I must give them a massive thumbs up for that. (I was at the Transreality booth if you where wondering.)

(I also don't think I saw you there Mel. What where you cosplaying as?)

Thank you! I think I'm going to have to start marketing the man chest after the reaction it got! XD

Aww... I don't know if I'll be going back. I am curious to see what the new venue is going to be like, but I fear I might be getting too old for the scene.

I am curious about the new venue too, and I know what you mean about being to old for the scene - everyone else is so young! LOL but next year shall be interesting...probably work in my favour for my cosplay especially - no freaking stairs xDDD

Mel if you stop coming down for AVCon I will be so disappointed!!

The new venue will hopefully be fantastic. More space in all the theatres, no going up and down stairs between areas as white_rabbit says and hopefully more of everything all round!

Bring all your friends
