Cons have got to be the best part of being an anime fan...
You get to meet new interesting people and have so much fun.
If you want to get the most out of it go to the panels and video rooms and specil events.
Also go to the exhibit hall and spend some cash... You can find anything in there.

Have a great time... I remember my first con. It was so much fun... and worh every penny that I spent

[size=1] It's great fun, really. ^_^ I went to my first one this year in September.

Well, for one thing, they're REALLY crowded. There's always a lot of cosplayers, too, and some of them are pretty vulgar [^_~] so just in case...Cosplaying looked like great fun, so I guess I'll do it next year.

Bring bottled water or something to drink while staying at the con [are you staying in a hotel room there...?] and some snacks to eat. At most cons, they don't sell food and if they do, it'll probably have a huge line. ^__^;;

In the Dealer's Room [room where you can buy all the anime goodies], I advise you not to buy any Japanese food snacks there, because those things are horribly over-priced at cons. You should research the things you want to buy and see if the Dealer's Rooms' prices are either too high, a good bargain, or average. It's pretty easy to get ripped off in there...and if you're short of money, you can always haggle with the dealers so that they'll lower the price several dollars. The place sells everything from anime t-shirts to plushies, so don't try and spend all the money you have. ^_~ Try to spend your money wisely, even though that's hard when you're in a room packed with all-anime.

The art galleries and shows are also fun. You can browse and buy art if you want, but sometimes the artists overprice their pictures. =_=

Caution: If you want to view the Cosplay Contest, be aware of the many hours is takes. In the one I went into, we left after three hours and the contest was still going on. >_> The AMV contest can be long as well, but I enjoyed it and sat through the whole thing.

There's also an anime theatre at most cons where they play all anime all day, and there's a schedule outside of it. Or you can go into the Video Game room where they hold contests for games such as Soul Calibur and Super Smash Bros. Melee and etc. *shrugs* I visited it, but it was really hot in there so I left.

Every anime convention has tons of panels and workshops, and those are also very enjoyable, so have fun and try to make new friends! ^_^[/size]
