    Default How old were you when you went to your first convention?

    Hey guys, I was just wondering how old some of you were when you went to your first convention because I have wanted to go to several conventions, even some video game ones, for quite some time now but I am only 17 years old. Is there anyway, that when I at least turn 18, I will be able to go to a con? Like, also one of the big problems is that I live in Ohio, and I would have to fly there. Am I better off waiting until I am older to go?

    Thanks guys!

    I was about 12 or 13 when I went to my first con and it was only 45 minutes away from my hometown, as long as you have the drive for a long trip go for it!

    Don't know if it counts, but I was 14 (or 13, I dunno) when I went to my first convention, it was a gaming convention.

    I haven`t been to a convention. There was one that I almost went to, it was really close, but I completely forgot. <.< Guess I`ll just wait. ^^

    I went to my first con when I was 19, but the people I went with were several years younger.

    Considering that a good chunk of anime convention goers are in their teens, it sounds like you're at the perfect age. Although if you have to fly, you may want to wait a year or bring an adult with you.

    I was 21, but yes there are people there that are in their teens. Definitely bring an adult or at least go with a group. One of the rules my group has is that especially if you're cosplaying, always have a buddy with you.

    How old was I? lol I was 33 when I went to my first convention. Course, I've only been to 2 so far. Now I make it a BIG point of my year to attend SakuraCon. But at SakuraCon, they had kids that were like 6 or so cosplaying. I agree with the earlier comment, go in a group. There are the obvious advantages, but then there are the unobvious ones. As a group, you can do a group theme. Another advantage is if you get a hotel room, you split the cost. But the BIGGEST advantage to a group going on your first con is SUPPORT. Trust me, your first convention can be nerve racking if not down right terrifying. You can hear all the stories from others, but it never truelly prepares you for what you find. It can be a major mental shock. But once you've gone, you'll want to go again. It totally rocks. And yes, alot of the convention goers WILL be teens, but you do get some older folks like me going too. Anime conventions is the greatest way for anime to bridge the gaps in age, ethnic background, and gender. No matter the age, gender, or genetic background, we are all there for the same reason, our love of the anime.

    My first con was around age 19. I wasn't prepared for the madness and looking back and knowing what I know, that con was small!

    Default interesting thread

    For my first anime convention I was 22 years old I think. Itís not a very big one I go to but at lest itís in the city where I live. I would have to agree with a lot of people who posted here, that going with someone would be a good idea but in a group would be better. I was with two other people and I was glad of it too. I do plain on going to a bigger one next year but that means travelling to it. I also donít think your age is any problem because itís all ages that go to anime conventions, just like any convention really. When you do go I suggest planning ahead on weather or not you will make one or two trips for all the stuff you buy and/or cosplay out fit so your not logging it around all day. Conventions tend to be long and a few days normally. If you donít want to drop stuff off at your hotel or eat there instead, I would suggest renting a locker so you donít tire out as fast. Though, for my self I like going home to eat and drop off stuff that way I also donít get stopped from the checks either later on in the day for the music show.

As a group, you can do a group theme. Another advantage is if you get a hotel room, you split the cost. But the BIGGEST advantage to a group going on your first con is SUPPORT. Trust me, your first convention can be nerve racking if not down right terrifying. You can hear all the stories from others, but it never truelly prepares you for what you find. It can be a major mental shock. But once you've gone, you'll want to go again. It totally rocks. And yes, alot of the convention goers WILL be teens, but you do get some older folks like me going too. Anime conventions is the greatest way for anime to bridge the gaps in age, ethnic background, and gender. No matter the age, gender, or genetic background, we are all there for the same reason, our love of the anime.
    I was 33 too. =D
    Sure Wish I had a little dvd player on my forklift at work... no, wait, that would be dangerous.

    I was seventeen when I went to my first con. It was anime detour 2008. then of course I became obsessed. So much crazy randomness. But I only was there one day.

    Then last year, when I was eighteen, I actually got a room and stayed the whole weekend. So I guess I would say I got the whole experience, last year.
