Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

That’s what’s important, and you make a cute Momo. I’ve never been to one, I don’t even know what happens.

Aww, thanks! <3 And mostly what happens is people run around taking pictures of other people. Most people are pretty polite but there’s a large minority of people with no social skills/awareness wandering around and depending on how long you’ve been there, if you are a “crowd person” or not, if you have anxiety, or if you have chronic illnesses that make  your patience wear thin, this second group of people can get VERY annoying. But if you can handle crowds or haven’t been there long you might not even notice them. 

Another thing that happens is there is usually an Artist’s Alley and/or a Dealer’s Room, though I’ve been to a con so small those two spaces were combined. Artist’s Alley is where you can buy fanart and other unofficial stuff by artists (not all of it is related to fandom; there can be jewelry or handmade plushies or scarves or what have you), and the Dealer’s Room is where official merchandise is sold. Some of this is stuff you can’t easily get in the States at any other time, or is discontinued. Basically expect to spend lots of money on swag if it’s your first con, because you’ll be overwhelmed by the pretties.

Finally there are panels to go to! At Matsuricon I went to several, including three Whose Line is it Anime panels, which is Whose Line is it Anyway, but nerdier. Expect there to be panels on topics on anything from consent in cosplay culture to the Zelda timeline. I went to an OK Legend of Korra fan panel the day after the season three finale that managed to avoid spoiling it for me, but there was a jerky dude there who was blurting out spoilers for other season three episodes (I had already seen them, but not everybody had) and he sat RIGHT NEXT TO ME. (I told him to knock it off and he was like, “But they only said for the finale!”) So sometimes a great sounding panel can be ruined by the people in them.

Anyway, all in all cons are a great time but very draining and I wouldn’t recommend more than one or two a year. I would recommend trying to see one since you haven’t already, but I will say this: I noticed that I’ve gotten older each year, but mostly the relative age of con goers hasn’t. So if that bothers you, stay home. Oh, and don’t cosplay even in the slightest if you are uncomfortable having your picture taken, because people will want to take your picture for the simplest things.

This is a totally beautiful Eevee hat/cowl done by skastumes.com. It was way cheap compared to the prices of other Eevee hats at the con that were hat only and just had ears, no cowl. It was only $50. A total steal given the quality of the work and all the material used and the time that obviously went into the piece. I would have bought this but I don&#8217;t have the ability to give it the attention and love it deserves. So I told the creator I would make a post about it on tumblr and try and signal boost it because she&#8217;s having a hard time selling it, and it&#8217;s a quality piece that deserves a good home.
