    #1. yes, yes, yes, yeeeeeeeesssszzzzzzz
    #2. Expect lots of people swarming about everywhere, dealers selling all sorts of awesome anime goodies, cosplayers yeling at each other from across the room about each others awesome cosplays, and much more
    #3. Last time i went, there was this one crazy girl running around hugging people, and everyone in cosplay she super-hugged, and its memorable just b/c the whole time, me n my friends were cracking up at the expressions some peple made when recieving a blind from behin hug, lol.

    1: Yes its really, really fun. So much to do.
    2: Expect people all over da place, cosplayers (lots of em), and weird events like masquerades and pocky dancing.
    3: My brother dressed up as a Jack Skellington with stilts! The convention in Rosemont convention center was only 5 minutes from his hotel. And it took him 2 hours to get there. 2 HOURS! So many people stopped him for pictures, small chats, and more pictures.

    In other words, GO TO A ANIME CON AS SOON AS YOU GET THE CHANCE.

    Ahh, you can never tell what's gonna happen in a convention. Go to the main day, it's when many people go. The begining and last days are usually boring. Plus almost everyone's very friendly, so it's really fun. ^^

    That would depend on what convention you're going to. You can check online for a schedule, also when you get to the convention they should give you a schedule of the events. The voice guests should sign autographs, I believe there will be pages in your booklet (schedule) for that. Or, you can bring something else for them to sign, like a poster Voice guests also normally have a q&a or some other sort of seminar.

    I'm not sure exactly what yours will be like, but they will probably have snack food like pocky, other japanese candy, and ramune. The con I went to didn't really have much for food so we brought our own. As for money, that depends on how much you think you'll buy. Manga normally goes for around $7, posters you can get for pretty cheap, about $2. There's also lots of other stuff like plushies, figurines, music, dvds etc. If you want a costume though, expect to spend a lot more. Most people spend around $50-$100 at the convention I went to. Again, it's really up to you as to how much you think you'll spend.

    The price will depend on what convention your attending. Lets say your going to Anime Expo in Los Angeles california. That's by far the biggest anime convention on the west coast. I don't know exactly how much you need to register but if you include that with the price of a hotel room, food, and stuff to buy in the convention itself.... you best believe to reel in around 150-200 bucks. Even more if you want to splurge yourself with anime goodies.
    Now you don't have to pay so much if you don't plan to buy anything, eat foods you brought yourself for 3-4 days, or stay with friends/family that live near the convention. Bottom line is that anime is a luxury and these conventions are annual so expect it to be a bit pricey.

    Yeah, I would bring earplugs just incase there’s a music show, or just plain show to go to. I forgot mine this year and I had to leave early because they blasted the music so loud and I was on the dance flour. They some times even give away free animes and posters at the shows as well. Some times the shows are good but they normally range in how good they are (example off tempo.). Also, don’t be afraid to ask if the price could be lowered a bit; especially if you’re buying a lot, people normally lower the price for me. In less you have that kind of charisma that works against you, because they may just raise the price instead I’ve seen it when people try to copy me.

    Cons are alot of fun, i've been to 3. There's a lot of different events depending on where you go and when. The cost can be anything from free entry (a small local con around in my town) to i've spent like $600 on hotel, entry and things i've bought. (sakura con)
    So i say go, i know the two larger ones i've gone to post there schedule online so you can choose which day to go. But go early if it's a larger con because you'll be standing in line for a long time. >.> kumori con i stood in line for 6 hours.
    Plus, go in cosplay!!!! The looks you get around town are priceless
    Only fools accept the obvious and go no farther.
    Common sense isn't so common anymore.
