I have attended conventions of any sort since I was a few months old. The perks of having fan parents~.

Godzilla conventions thus far, though I would like to try an anime convention one day, just to see what it's like.

Once. It was Games Day 2011 in Birmingham. Me and a busload of Warhammer players from the Dublin and Belfast Games Workshop stores made the trip over by ferry on a Saturday night, spend Sunday there, arrived back for Monday morning (a college day no less :unimpressed: )

To say the least, kinda sucked... It was so poorly organised, I spend half the day in line to get the limited edition resin kits. That was a nightmare. So crowded you can barely move, the stink of a thousand sweaty nerds filling the air, so much body heat you have to take a swig of your overheated bottled water every few seconds, this going on for hours and hours...

Once I'd gotten my products, I had to take an hour long breather just to get my strength back. After that, none of the events or displays going on wowed me. If I'd had more money, maybe I'd have enjoyed myself a little better.

The high point of the day was getting my hands on a novel regarding the faction I play "The Gildar Rift" several months before its scheduled release date, and getting to meet it's author, talk with her, and get my copy signed. That was great fun.

But it's not a trip I plan to take again, no sir.

I've been to all of one convention: Minecon! I went the first year when they were in Las Vegas last year. It was in Paris this year so as you can guess, being in California means i definitely couldn't make that xD

I'm not sure I'd enjoy a fan convention. I'm currently deciding whether or not to go to Bronycon this year, though, I'm fortunate that it's being held in my hometown this year, and is also 1 hour away from where I stay while I'm at college, so I suppose now would be the perfect chance for me to go. Anyway, what do you guys typically do at conventions?

Yeah, I've attended a few pop-culture conventions over the years. They're pretty boring if you go by yourself, but they're amazing with friends!
I definitely recommend going to one at least once :)

Yes...well...technically.

I Drove my Mom to The Southern Women's Show and The Home and Patio Show a couple of times...they aren't really the types of Conventions I'd like to go but they were pretty ok , I really want to go to BronyCon and My Little PonyCon but they aren't held near where I live (Apparently holding Bronycon at The Prime Osborn or The World Golf Village in Florida is too much to ask)

I go to this big convention called Armageddon every year around where I live. It's got the latest in gaming, movies, TV, comics and all. There's a few brony meetups there and people cosplaying as MLP characters. It's pretty awesome!
