So, I've been really into anime on and off for about 7 years. Sadly, I've never been to an anime convention, and I feel that I should really go! The nearest one to me is AnimeDetour, however the registration is closed for this year. I'm going to go next year for sure.
Basically, I have a year and a half to make my costumes, and do whatever I need to do to be con ready. Do you guys have any suggestions for dos and don'ts at cons? Also do you guys know of any other cons in the SD, ND, MN, WI, IA area?
