Here is a list of the conventions I’m going to go to this year:
I hadn’t been to an anime convention in a while so I chose this one. Hopefully, I’ll see great cosplay! I know one of my favorite cosplayers will be going, MangoSirene. Maybe I’ll get to take pictures of some good cosplayers. I’m going to bring my DSLR and test it out ^_^ . Oh, and I hope I get to buy some great artworks!!! My favorite parts of conventions are the vendors’ room, the artist alley, and the people-watching XD
This will be my big trip of the year and possibly of my life. I’ve never been to Europe before, but I planned for this to be my geek pilgrimage or something, haha. I only had time and money to go to Germany and England, but I’m going to try to see so much in just two weeks!!! Castles, beer halls, Hobbit Con, bicycle tours, The Making of Harry Potter London Studio, Dr. Who Experience, London National Gallery, and all the typical, touristy London sites.
- Awesome Con
I loved this convention last year. Haha, probably because I was accidentally one of the first people to get into the Billie Piper panel. “Accidentally” because I saw this random line forming so I figured “why not”, hahaha. I also got to use the TARDIS photo booth! XD This convention has grown huge in about a year. It had about 7,000 attendees two years ago and last year there were 40,000 attendees. It was crazy! I have NO idea how many people will attend this year around.
- Salute to Supernatural – 10th Anniversary
I love Supernatural, but I’ve never been to one of these Salute to Supernatural conventions because of their location. Hopefully, it’s fun. The cast seems crazy, but fun hahaha. I’ve gotta draw some artwork for this convention for autographs.
- Anime USA
Last minute addition! I figure that since this was easy to get to, I’ll be going! Hopefully, it’ll be fun. I’ve never been to this one before 🙂
I’ll be posting pictures, tweets, igs, and etc. while I’m at the conventions themselves so be on the lookout for those, I suppose. I wanted to go to other conventions too, but sadly, I just don’t have all the time or money in the world. I hope I can go to them next year in 2016 though!
- Calgary Expo This popped into my head and I thought “why not”. I’ve never been to Canada and the expo seems fun 😀 Will try next year.
- Fantasy Con I wanted to go to this one so bad this year, but I’lll just have to try for it next year.
- SD Comic Con I tried SOOOO FREAKIN’ HARD to get tickets to this!!! I actually had four different tickets or numbers or whatever to try to get into the online waiting room for the tickets, but alas, no luck!!! I was depressed for quite a bit….but I’m hoping my Europe trip will make up for it 😀
- NY Comic Con I had been going to this convention every year, but unfortunately, this year, I can’t, lol. It was New York vs Europe and I chose Europe hahaha. But this is a great con to go to.
- Otakon This was my first convention EVER (2008)! So I have some good memories. Unfortunately, the hotel cost just wasn’t worth it this year.
- CTN Animation Expo I love this expo. I might actually try to make it since it’s at the end of the year and I might have enough money by then XD
