when I was younger I used to watch Winnie the Pooh all the time and everytime I saw pooh eating honey I was always like “mmmm that looks good” so imagine my disappointment when I saw honey for the first time. Pooh is eating like nacho cheese lookin honey he had me excited for nothing
no, bro. Pooh is eating raw, unpasteurized honey. Like this:
Oh my God. I’ve literally thought this my entire life.
pairing you really love
pairing you couldn’t give a shit about even if you tried
Taking the crowds into account, some of the big appeal is seeing some of the REALLY amazing cosplayers and just enjoying having such a large congregation of people with common interests together
Yeah! And I can respect that, and I figure that’s why a great deal of people are going, but the whole crowd thing is pretty iffy. I have a few friends that couldn’t enjoy the experience of a large scale convention because it was so crowded…like they couldn’t enjoy anything the con had to offer, including cosplays because they kept bumping into so many people. Others might like the idea of being surrounded by nerds and that’s fine too.
it’s not as crowded but even cons like Anime Central have that problem. You cannot expect to have the energy to go to panels back to back, scour the dealer’s hall and artist alley, etc. You MIGHT make it to a few things a day at any con…
Yeah, anime conventions tend to be on a smaller scale.
idk, with everyone talking about it so much it almost seems like they’ve never actually thought about the SDCC experience. SDCC has sooo much going on with it when it comes to media and guests from all around the world and everyone is whining about wanting to go but like, SDCC is definitely not something to go to if you’ve never been to a convention before or if you’re looking to do everything they have to offer
at most other conventions you’re able to do significantly more depending on the convention and what your goal is. Like you can visit maybe one or two panels one day, visit the dealers room and artist’s alley another and go to organized photoshoots in between. For example, my local anime convention, Nekocon had 3100 attendees last year and I had a lot of fun there - I could visit multiple panels and check out the dealer’s and artist’s alley in one day.
You’re also able to have more variety in cosplaying whatever you like compared to something like SDCC where there’d literally be no room to do much and there’d be too many big named people present to get the desired attention you might want.
It just really depends, but all I’m saying is aiming for the big leagues right away isn’t the smartest thing to do.
but why do ya’ll wanna go to comic con so badly
like yeah i guess SDCC is “the big one” but the media has hyped it up so much ya’ll are acting like it’s gonna be this really awesome diverse experience that you get to do so much with, when you really have no idea how conventions like that actually work
i mean, have you thought about how crowded that place is going to be? you probably won’t be comfortable doing a big cosplay because there are so many people in a limited space? have you thought about how long you’d have to wait in line just to see a couple of celebs or big name panel?? and you literally have to dedicate an entire day just to doing one thing because there’s so many people - including lots of different media companies - attending the convention
sure you might get your money’s worth, but don’t expect to do everything there is available to you, because that’s not going to be the case at all
