Let’s Play Gaming Expo is a 2 day gaming convention that took place June 18 and 19th in the DFW area. I attended on that Sunday to check it out! I’ve been attending fan conventions for over a decade now, but most of the time I’ll find myself at an Anime Convention, Gaming events are not […]

Tales from a Dragon*Con Virgin

Tales from a Dragon*Con Virgin

  This year I had the opportunity to attend Dragon-Con (D*C), one of the largest comic/sci-fi/fantasy cons in the united states. It takes place every year on labor day weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. I have wanted to attend for several years, but the timing or the cost (or both) always got the best of me. […]

A-kon 24 Convention Report

A-kon 24 Convention Report

I think everyone was nervous about A-kon this year because for the first time since many of us had been attending it would be in a new venue. A-kon had previously been at the Sheraton (formerly the Adam’s Mark) for nearly 10 years and while it desperately needed to move into a venue that could […]

All-Con 2013: Con Report

A few weeks ago I attended All-Con for my second year. I was very excited to attend because last year when I went I had a cold and so I couldn’t really enjoy things too much because I was so tired. Before I attended All-Con I was always told it was this amazing little gem […]

Ikkicon VII: Con Report

I always look forward to Ikkicon, while the end of the year can be an inconvenient time it guarantees me a few things. One, I have days off of work for Christmas and New Years and two, I always get to see my friends around the holidays. It’s also nice to know I will for sure get to visit […]

Anime Fest 2012: Con Report

I’ve been attending Anime Fest since 2006 so when they announced they were moving out of the Hyatt and into the Sheraton (the former home of A-kon) I was a little nervous. I think everyone was, I’m sure most people attending had never been at an Anime Fest anywhere but the Hyatt. When I arrived Friday afternoon […]

San Japan Mach 5: Con Report

San Japan Mach 5: Con Report

  San Japan is one of my favorite conventions to attend. It’s a large convention that has had rapid growth in just the five years it’s been around in San Antonio, TX. Despite having an attendance of over 9,000 (yes, lol) this year it never felt overcrowded. This is probably thanks to their venue, the […]
