Updating my list (and bumping it up a little seeing as it's about a month away)-
Thursday and Friday: http://th04.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/...us-d4i7dch.jpg
Saturday: http://i439.photobucket.com/albums/q...ingAmerica.jpg

Thursday I'm doing it for fun, even if it's not really a "con day" but not sure yet for Sunday since I'm seeing if I'll get another cosplay before that. But for those not clicking the links:

Someone already answered the time question, but I'll answer the, "is it worth it?" question. AFO is like most cons - the experience varies. If you like panels, personally I feel AFO has a really awesome variety every year. If you like con shows, AFO doesn't necessarily have those. They do, however, offer a a sort of game you can play throughout the con with a storyline (a bit like an RPG, with the "cut scenes" happening before/after the main events of the cosplay contest, AMV contest, etc). If you like seeing lots of really good cosplays, it isn't different than any other con, as in there are always really amazing cosplays there... but you need to keep in mind ratios. As for the convention center itself, they had to move it to a different location this year so if you see people complaining about the location this round, just know it was kind of a last minute move and it probably won't be there next year.

Regardless, I do hope you give AFO a chance next year, even if for one day. I will warn you though, if you like "large" sized cons, AFO is a bit on the medium/borderline small side.

I wonder how the convention area will be set up. I like knowing in advance to make better plans. But I guess it will be a fun little surprise...

Well since I didn't go to Metro it gives me enough time to save up even more for AFO! The hotel is just lovely, been there once when my family came down for a visit. Trying to convince some of my friends to share a room. Hopefully I get some to agree. lol. I really would like to go Sat and Sun since its the only con I will be going to for the year. I missed all the others and instead of trying to save for another con I am just going to wait until MegaCon 2014. O.O Such a long wait. XD

Getting close

I know I'm hitting con mode for AFO now, cause I found myself standing in the store aisle trying to decide which of the two almost identical black notebooks/journals to buy and asking myself "Which would Undertaker use?" I'm obsessed with finding white lilies to flesh out the funeral bouquet that I'll be carrying. I need to do a little work on Muu-Chan and find the right white feathers for the battle fan....

ARRRGH... So many things to do!

I'm so looking forward to this con!

Melisenda

Friday -- Just me cause I'm getting in late
Saturday -- Undertaker (Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler)
Sunday -- Lord Sugino with Muu-Chan (Tactics)

Three weeks after Metro, and what... two weeks before Dragon*Con? D:

I always liked AFO, but I haven't been able to go for the last few years. Has it grown in size/gotten better? I want to go, but I had Metrocon last weekend and plan on going to Anime Weekend Atlanta at the end of September, so I probably won't be able to go unless it's for just one day.

I'd say try going at least one day to see for yourself if it's better but it seems to have gotten bigger from what I've seen. Hopefully the panels will be just as good as the ones I saw when I went to AFO in 2011.
