youmacon

Anyone heard of this convention being held in Troy? Been to it last year, or know if it is even worth the time and effort to register in advance?

I went last year, it's well worth it to pre-reg. I had a great time, but it would have been better if my one friend didn't invite this one girl to our mini group.(had a spilting headake by the end of the day)

A lot of us are sort of hopeing Vic who does Edward Elric's voice will return. I hope he does.

Vic has stated that he had a wonderful time at Youmacon and would love to come back. Caitlin has also said this. I would love it if they could as it was a lot of fun hanging out with them, especially in the less crowded setting that this convention offers. They didn't get mobbed as much. (I hope they can come to Jafax in June, as they expressed an interest, but that event is REALLY small) I'm not sure I'll be in the area when November rolls around, but if I am I will probably go. I can't say it was full of exciting things to do, or had a big dealers room (which it didn't), but if you like just hanging out and being laid back, it's really nice.

lol Good! I want to see the movie again he was in, I rather enjoyed it. I do have to agree with you about the over crowed bit.
I just hope if I get a hotel room with my group(still need to get one or two more females to room with) that we don't get stuck next to a group of wild animals.
I like to stay up, but if I'm taking my red kimono to wear and have to apply face paint for an hour and other stuff I'll want some sleep.

Just a general observation, but does anyone else find it a bit strange that the last day of Youmacon this year happens to fall on Guy Fawkes Day^^

Guy Fawkes Day (also known as Bonfire Night) is when everyone in Great Britian has huge bonfires to remember the day when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the parliment and kill the king. I don't know, for some strange reason I just found that ironic^^

LOL... A bunch of people tried to take over Youmacon last year. But the same people are still running it, so long live the establishment, eh? ;-)

Family and I went to Youmacon as well. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We plan to attend again this year.

Ah yes, Guy Fawkes...I recall that name ^_^ I believe V for Vendetta is inspired by him.
