Just found out about Ushicon a ways north of here. Not interested in wandering around alone, though....

For going to convention is there any prep involved? It's seems like something to prepare for.

The biggest decision for me was whether or not to get a hotel :) I live about 40 minutes away from the convention center so I could drive down every day and find parking, but the convenience of a hotel room is nice so I decided to get one :) Sasly I'm a dumb person and only booked originally for 1 night and couldn't extend, so I actually have 2 hotels for two different nights which should be interesting...

As for the convention itself, you need to look at the schedule and find out what you want to do. Do you want to go to panels? Do you want someone's autograph? Do you want to buy things? Find out what's important and schedule around those things :) Sadly you can't go to everything. A lot panels that I want to go to conflict with each other :cry:

If you want to buy things, be sure to save up!

Other than that, I'll bring a backpack or bag with me to carry stuff, bring some water to stay hydrated, and wear comfortable shoes.

My prayers have been answered! I'm officially going to Indiana ComiCon! I won't be able to cosplay this year, unfortunately, though my sister will be going as Shiro from No Game, No Life.
