That was awesome. Only experienced maybe a 1/3 of what they had to offer, but what I saw and did was amazing. So many vendors, so many costumes, so many GREAT IDEAS! And my son handled everything like a 'pro'. He was the only one of us in costume (Ash Ketchum from Poke'mon) but it was a very simple costume/look that he wouldn't be uncomfortable in and everybody knew who he was. -which of course, he loved. He's on the autism spectrum, so we were always concerned about long lines, loud noises, or just being overwhelmed in general. He was amazing! Totally entertained, engaged, and perfectly behaved. So proud of him and his mature/flexible attitude. Long day, LOTS of walking, (I'll be prepared for that next time) but so fun! I can easily see why it's so well attended. Would have liked to see more, but for our very first con? I think we saw just enough to want to come back again, & again. -and NEXT TIME...maybe in a cosplay that I can pull off. Don't want to go overboard and not be able to walk around and/or not be able to enjoy the rest of the convention, but something in my skill range that stands out without being too complex.
And I already have a few things in mind!
