Have you ever been to a con? Which one(s)? Did you cosplay? Buy any merchandise? Do you want to go again? If you've never went, would you consider going?? talk cons here \o/

I've never been to one and probably never will. Huge crowds of people have never been my thing and I don't have interest in panels, cosplay or merch. I just like watching anime at my leisure at home.

    I've been to Anime Expo a couple of times and I cosplayed as Pikachu and I've also been to Awesome Con. I enjoy going to cons and it's fun to go with a friend or sibling. The last time I went to Anime Expo, I didn't enjoy it much because I went by myself, it was so crowded and I had to wait 3 hours in line to pick up my badge, I cut halfway in line and if I did not cut in line, I would have had to wait 4 hours in line.

      Pretty much this although I'd imagine if the right people were on a panel I'd be interested.

      I have gone to at least one anime convention every year since 2012, and have attended the same one for 6 coming up on 7 years in a row, Anime Detour. I actually attended 2 in 2017, Anime Detour and A-Kon, and a whopping 4 in 2018, Anime Detour, AniMinneapolis, Anime Midwest, and Anime Expo - though for AX I was only there for the Day 0 concert. I am slated to attend 2 for sure and possibly a 3rd this year as well.

      I don't cosplay, but I do attend panels and browse the artist alleys and merch halls.

      I go to NY Comic Con every year with a few small, somewhat local cons in between. I’ve been going for many years but only cosplayed a few times - each year I promise myself to work on a better costume but seldom does that ever get done lol. ( ;´Д`)

      Yes! I went to NYCC in 2013. Nowadays I go to smaller cons at libraries, and some cheap cons like Long Island Comic Book Expo! I intend to go again to LICBE because that one was really good. I also went to Art and Comic Book Expo last year.

      I go to p much any anime con that's free or cheap, it gives me an excuse to have a day out.

      Yes! I try to go to at least one each year though I believe there was one year that I didn't because of work and because of money. But I enjoy going and spending my time browsing through the merch hall and getting merch (especially artist alley!) and chilling and seeing other people's cosplays. I don't really go to panels (so i basically go to spend money oop) because I normally go with my sister and while walking crowds are find she doesn't do well in sitting crowds haha. I have gone to a few panels in the past but not many (i believe the last one i actually went to was a tales of panel during one year of metrocon a few years back).

      I've cosplayed three different characters now. Definitely looking forward to my next cosplay and any future ones that I might do! As for going to any this year I'm going to try to attend both Megacon and Metrocon but if i can only get a chance to attend one it'll probably be metrocon just because it's easier to get off of work for (as last year I scheduled my week's vacation around that time since it's during summer).

          I have been to Dragoncon twice if that counts and just looked at cosplayers because I am poor and like to see the effort that goes into the outfits.
