SAIKYO!!

I can't wait for anime con season to start again. If you've never been it's the one place where anyone can fit in and virtually anything is considered socially acceptable, for better or worse. Anyone who complains about being a virgin has never been to a con, because I have seen even the most socially awkward people get laid. But it's not just about sex. No where else have I played Settlers of Catan for 10 hours in a row, or walked into random hotel rooms and been challenged to a drinking contest just for being there. They really do develop a society of their own for the weekend they exist. Call me a nerd but there is something universally appealing about being around 25,000 people that you know right way you have something in common with.

And by the end of the weekend, I think this picture sums it up best.

  4. I hope no one ever sees my cosplay, which is why I posted it on facebook.

    No one loves me :<

  5. Cons are a lot of fun. It's pretty rare for a dude like me to walk into a giant building filled with people and feel like I share interests with almost all of them. Of course, it goes both ways and sometimes you realize that you are part of a fanbase that is 75% creepos.

    The best part about cons is the cosplay. Halloween is my favorite holiday, so cosplay is like getting an extra Halloween (or several) without worrying about people "getting" my costume. If you wear something to a con, someone will always get it.
