The best way to make new friends at a con is to really just put yourself out there! The fact of the matter is is that you have one huge advantage toward meeting people at a con as opposed to any place else: You are garunteed to have at least one huge common interest with everyone you run across!

If you want to make friends, stay out of your room! Go to the rave, kick some butt in the video game room, go to photoshoots and gatherings, talk to people randomly! If you see a cosplay you like, compliment it! You might even get a conversation started! Best of luck to you, and remember that the key is to be outgoing!

Normally I'm a shy person, at every place other then a con I am. At a con I can put on a costume, leave my room, and find a group of people from the same show I'm cosplay from (or game, or manga, whatever). Most people don't mind if you sit down and chat with them, even if your not in costume, I just like the costume as an ice breaker.

I find myself making friends all the time at cons just by going to photo shoots or sitting somewhere waiting for people (lines are great places to meet people). As long as your out there, in the con, you should be able to find someone to talk to.

Well I'm kinda shy, most of my friend came up to me. Yes i fear female the most. But anyway I never know what to talk about, and if I do
i dont know what to say or it will come out wrong.

The key, as others have said, is to put yourself out there. ^-^ Try staying out of your room and if you see a cosplay you really like, compliment them andstrike up a conversation. ^_^ If you want, you can keep an eye out for me this year. n_n I'm always up to making new friends and easy to get along with, so don't be afraid to talk to me if you see me. ^.^ I'll be cosplaying a Alice from DDR in her 5th mix outfit. (Just look for the blue hair. xD) And Simca from Air Gear. (Look for a black cap and extremely long pink hair.) I'll also be doing a few others, but i'm not sure what at the moment. ^_^ If you see me at AUSA just shout out Naykomii or my characters name and say your forum user name. n_______n I respond well to being called, so don't get embarassed, say hi. ^^ *will shut up now because she's just ranting* xD;;

Act1 of Konoha- Aww!!! Don't be shy! Cons are the perfect place to make friends. Cosplaying definitely helps too as everyone has said how it manages to break the ice. Talk to people cosplaying the same character or series as you, or if you're not in costume, just someone else who is exhibiting interest in something you like too.

And hey, if you're a Narutard, you definitely have an advantage since they're their own species and generally all around friendly to everyone (myself included)

...you just have to be able to handle our odd humor. xD

If you wanna lure other people to you, as opposed to approaching them, add a pimp hat to your costume, it worked for me, Pimp Naruto.
