First time at A-Kon

Well, how the title says, this will actually be my first time at A-Kon. And my second anime convention at that, my first being Oni-Con 1. Well getting back on topic, I have heard some great things about A-Kon, and I waned to know, what can I expect from A-Kon? And also, what were your first times there like?

I had the good fortune of A-kon 11 being my first ever convention (i didn't even know there were such cons back in my anime newbie days). A-kon can be a sensory overload, but in a good way. It's big, so expect TONS of people! You'll probably end up making tons of new friends. There will be so many events and stuff going on, you won't know what to do first. A-kon pulls in some really good guest and music (Psycho Le Cemu......need i say more ^_^). Dealer room............well this where i usually go broke if i don't excersise some control! It's huge!! Generaly, A-kon's just some great fun. And it's better now that it's in a bigger venue (my god, we have space!!) NEWayz..... i think you'll have a great time there! Hope this helped a little.

My first con was UshiCon 2 ^___^ That makes five cons total for me so far.

A-Kon is a big con but it's fun. I hope you have a good time. ^^

My first A-kon was A-kon12. But my first Anime kon was in Colorado when I was 8. I think it was a mix though of Treeky & anime. Still fun though ^_^
If this is going to be anyone's first Project A-kon. Contact me. My friends and I can get pretty wild & we make sure we do just about everything the kon has to offer & also everything out side the kon.
Please do take care
*waves* bai te bais c ya at A-kon16 ^.~ja

Exact same with me. Oni-con was my first, and A-kon will be my second. And this is my first A-kon too! ^_^

A-Kon 15 was my first con and aside from a few setbacks it was a blast! I was lovingly accosted by someone who recognized the character I was cosplaying and got lots of hugs and pictures taken with her and her friends. I met a few people there that I saw again at Oni-Con 2004 and we had a lot of fun...until I got sick, which is another story entirely. Needless to say, I enjoyed A-Kon a thousand times more than Oni-Con, but through no fault of the Oni-Con organizers. It was just a bit claustophobic to me and to top it off I got sick and only got to go the first day ~_~

Well, hope to see you at A-kon! Have fun and bring friends!

You're a Houstonian, too, huh? Coolness. ^_^

A-Kon 16 will be my first real con. I wanted to go to Oni-Con like crazy, but couldn't. I can't quite remember why I didn't go. I think it was that I didn't have enough money, and I gave my parents too short of a notice. But anyway... I am really excited but yet really nervous... I'm not quite sure what to expect other than lots of people. I pray someone comes up to me and says they recognize me from Cosplay.com... ^^ I know I'll recognize a bunch of people... Anyway, I'll hopefully see you all there!

Akon 13 was my first and I must say for someone who doesnt own traditional Anime costumes the fans that turned out were extremely nice and accepting. I got lots o pics with everyone and I was very impressed with the high level of craftmanship of some of the other costumes. I didnt win any costume contests but I had a great time! Speaking of costume contests I just wanted to give all the Texas folks a heads up about All-Con www.all-con.org which is this weekend (Feb. 4-6) in Dallas. There is alot of entertainment lined up for the event including COSTUME CONTESTS, a MASQUERADE/MARDI GRAS BALL, and a MRS. STAR WARS CONTEST. There are lots of cool prizes to be given away including an authentic Princess Leia replica belt and Han Solo holster ( a combined value of over $500). This is a great chance to get in on the ground floor of an annual event. Come help support a local fan run convention! I look forward to seeing everyone there!
