If you like dubs, then there are a lot of great guests. A ton of important VAs live in Texas and frequently attend the cons and hold panels.

Now if you are like me and wish to have nothing to do with dubs, then they are a little less exciting. Texas has small cons all over the place- Ikkicon, Realms Con, San Japan, etc. Musical guests are rarely Japanese, but my convention highlight is still The OneUps at Ikkicon- a fantastic band doing video game arrangements. You get some other interesting things like webcomic artists, cosplay entertainers, and such. Nothing really amazing though.

Then there is A-Kon, a really old convention still running. A lot of people love Akon and its large enough to attract some important guests and industry presence. I hear its a bit different from the other major cons, and some people thuroughly dislike it. Having never been, my opinion is nuetral.

Overall, if you are willing to travel around, there a quite a lot of interesting smaller conventions. The guests may not always be high-profile, but they can still be a lot of fun. I just wish there were more academic panels like the ones at Otakon and other larger cons. I plan to try out A-kon sometime to see what I think of it.

Here are the Texas EGL communities of Livejournal

Texas: http://community.livejournal.com/texas_lolis/
Houston: http://community.livejournal.com/houston_loli/
Austin: http://community.livejournal.com/austinlolitas/
Dallas/Fort Worth: http://community.livejournal.com/metroplexlolita/
San Antonio: http://community.livejournal.com/satx_lolitas/

San Antonio and Dallas seem pretty active. Austin slightly less so. Houston and overall Texas seem alright. Hope that helps.

Thank you. I know some one gave me a link to a Houston one before but it didn't work. If I had my car I might drive out to Dallas or some thing. But Houston is much closer. Only about an hour away.

Just thought I'd stop by and say that there is going to be an International Cosplay Day meetup in Austin on the 28th of this month.

Here's the Facebook event page for more information:

I don't know why, but I feel a bit pathetic when asking people things on forums and stuff.
But, is there any Dallas Ft.Worth cosplayers between the ages of 15-18 that would be interested in joining my group cosplay? I have a deviantart account linking the group account to YT and stuff. I mainly cosplay from video games but there are a few animes I would love to do.

Well, right now, I'm just trying to make a new friend and a cosplay partner. I'm pretty much by myself in all of this and it would be nice to make a new friend who's willing to cosplay in public and stuff and just have a good time and hang out. I do have a friend who I cosplay with, but honestly, she just brings me down most of the time. I feel like she never helps me with making cosplays (I'm the one usually doing all of the work), and I don't feel like she's that appreciative to me about. And sometimes she's just plain rude. (I'll stop ranting now.)

So to speak, I'm just desperate right now to find someone out there. The school I go to, everyone is just stuck up and narrow minded and very judgmental. The best bet of me finding some one is here or on DeviantART. But even that's hard to do. I guess that's why I feel so pathetic because I've gone to looking for friends on the net than where I live. *sigh* I live in the DFW area and I've been to A-Kon a few times and I will be going to A-Fest this year so hopefully I'll meet some people there.

That's the same day Central Texas College (an hour northwest-ish of Austin) is having a mini convention.

Wow, Tess in Texas? That'll be a huge injection of cosplay talent to the state. Awesome. What brings you to this part of the country?

And for the purpose of the thread, I'm in Austin. Recently some of my Austinite cosplay pals defected to DFW (no hard feelings) so I'm curious to see who else is in the neighborhood.

Hello, everyone! I'm from Fort Worth!! I'll be hitting AnimeFEST in a week or so, and SoniCon and YuleCon in November. ^^ I'm also going to try and make Realms Con, OniCon, and BanzaiCon. Anyone else hitting the smaller cons?
