If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!
Today is all about conventions I’ve attended and wish to attend one day. I wish I could say I’ve been to 5 conventions, but I’ve only been to three so far. I hope I can add one more this weekend for Anime St. Louis but with all the wedding planning, we’ll just have to see.
Sorry for the poor picture quality. My little digital camera was very strange and needed you to push the button in such a way to avoid blurriness. We never really figured it out. Regardless, KamiCon 2013 in Birmingham, AL was my very convention. We had an amazing time with so much to do and see. I got to see cosplayers in person and even some awesome voice actors (Vic Mignogna)! It was a really great first convention.
Not many pictures were taken at MomoCon which took place a couple of weeks after KamiCon. Alec and I took my brother to Atlanta, GA for his birthday. This shot is of Alec in his Little Kuriboh shirt and a minecraft creeper’s head while he “reads” the events and panels for the weekend. This convention was even bigger than KamiCon and a bit overwhelming. We walked from the hotel we were in to the con to avoid paying valet fees. Still a great experience for all three of us though.
Anime Weekend Atlanta
It wasn’t until 2015 that Alec and I were able to attend another convention together. This time it was Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA). Even bigger than MomoCon, this con was the first one we were able to cosplay at. We had an amazing time and I can’t wait to do it again.
MCM London Comic Con
Celebrities, Quidditch, international cosplayers: MCM has it all. It’s a big dream of mine to visit London (one of the Doctor’s favorite places), but also to attend MCM! Maybe one day….
Reasons I want to attend Otakon:
- One of the largest cons
- Indie Row
- Lolita Garden
What conventions have you been to? Which were your favorite? What cons are on your wishlist? Tell me in the comments!
