Katie (sfladreaming) | 14 comments We most recently went to Palmcon 2014. A few years ago we were able to attend the Hatsume Fest at the Morikami Japanese Gardens south of us. I am plannig to attend again this year, hopefullly we will make it. I have been to Chibi pa once, my son twice, & my nephews 3 times. Would love to make it to Dragoncon one year! How is it????

DragonCon is okay. To me it was like going to Disney World or somewhere else with equally ridiculous lines and so many people you feel like a canned sardine.
I couldn't get in half the discussions/panels I wanted to because of hour long line waits or by the time I figured out where they really were (cause their map sucked) they'd closed and locked the doors. I took lots of pics and met Carrie Fischer though.

Personally, I like smaller cons. It's a lot easier to interact with less people and get into the panels/events I really want to without such a hassle.
But that's just me.

Katie (sfladreaming) | 14 comments Thank you for the info, I can certainly understand that! We had a great time at Palmcon, Chibi pa, & Hatsume. So I guess we will stick to the ones close to home! lol Although if the opportunity arises to go to Dragoncon or Comic Con, I certainly would go, at least once! ;)

Animazement was pretty great. It has grown so much since we went last, it just exploded! So many people and more events to choose from.
I got my autograph too, hehe!

Wow, sounds like you guys are in areas that have a lot of cons to choose from!

Cate (The Professional Fangirl) (chaostheory08) | 59 comments Just got home from Anime Impulse. It's a new one, the first of hopefully many. :)

Cate (The Professional Fangirl) (chaostheory08) | 59 comments Anime Expo 2016 was so much fun!

This year's highlight is definitely Anisong-World Matsuri, Japan Super Live!
