i was wondering who is going to this year's youmacon. i'm pretty sure it's taking place on halloween this time around. i've never been to a con before and i'm not sure if i'll ever get to. :/ my parents are weirded out by the fact i enjoy anime/manga and don't really understand why i would ever want to attend a con. i bring it up every now and then, but they usually say, "i don't have an answer for you right now." geeze... i wanted to know how old you were when you attended your first con, which one it was, how it went, how the hotel thinger worked out (did you room with online friends? if so, how on earth did you convince your parents to let you? :/)... i also would like to know if there are any other events or shopping centers around the con site for my mom to check out. i doubt she would want to hang out with sugar high otakus for three days.
ALSO.. i want to cosplay, but i've never sewed before. i'm thinking of doing L from death note because the costume seems pretty easy. white longsleeve shirt, sort of baggyish... loose jeans... no shoes... but the hair i'm concerned about. :/ i have no knowledge on wig styling and i'm a bit nervous about ruining the wig! (which i hear are expensive...)
soum... maybe someone who's a veteran con-goer could be my buddy? kukuku if you think you can handle it! (i don't bite lol... i just need some questions answered/guidance with cosplay.)
