Have you even been to a convention?
If so, what was it like?

I went to a moderately big anime-con a while ago. The theme was cyberpunk, so I dressed appropriately. There was a performance by Okinawan band High Tech Low Life, which was pretty dope. They deserved a bigger crowd.
Lastly I went to make some pics of my friends, only to be surprise-booped on the nose by a furry. Strange experience.

Tell me about your experiences at cons though. From the weird to the mundane, I'd love to hear them.

I was part of my high school's anime club for a brief period of time. The very first meeting I went to was dedicated to organizing a group trip to the local anime con, and one of the club leaders went on a fifteen minute rant about how anyone who came along should expect constant sexual harassment and groping regardless of who they were or what they were wearing. She finished by encouraging people to come along despite this. It was really weird and made me not want to go, not because I thought she was telling the truth, but because I just didn't want to be around people like her. I don't think I missed out on much, but I kind of regret not going out of curiosity.

Damn, that's kind of a weird experience to start out with. Warning of constant sexual harrasment is a bit much, and it would've scared off most rational people I think. Sadly there's still a lot of people like her in anime communities, so i do think you dodged a bullet there, lol
