  • Having to been Anime Expo, Anime Central, Crunchyroll Expo, MCM and a load of other conventions over the year I felt it was time I did the actual convention guide that people needed. From budget to cosplayers to etiquette.

    and don't forget if you're a cosplayer and you dress up as a very idolized character, having a tsunami of people follow you EVERYWHERE!!!!

    I thought weebs not taking showers was just a joke or a stereotype, until I actually met a weeb who doesn't take showers.

    Favorite con moment was seeing a Baptist convention happening during an Anime convention. The older ladies LOVED the little tiny lolita hats with crosses on them and bough so many from one of the booths.

    There was this one time where I desperately wanted to take pictures with DDLC cosplayers. The day before I went to a con last February, my best friend was sleeping over at my house, and I was telling her about what I really wanted, and she was telling me that I'm gonna see my Dokis. The next day, at the con, my friend, other friend, my mom, and I were waiting for the merch hall to open up in a huge crowd of people, and all of a sudden, I saw a Monika cosplayer in the distance behind me. I started yelling, "MONIKA! MONIKA! MONIKA!", and my mom was like, "We're not going anywhere until these doors open up!" and then I said to my mom, "Mom, if you love me, you'll let me go over there!" and my mom reluctantly agreed.

    In Montreal, Otakuthon is literally right in the middle of China town. During the weekend of the anime convention every Chinese store pretends to be Japanese and begins selling bootleg anime merchandise.

    Imagine being an extraterrestrial anime fan, and watching this as a guide before your first con cosplaying as a human, and taking this 100% at face value.
