After attending Otakon this year, I've realized that every person I've met seems to have a specific focus for what they want to do at a convention. Some people are really focused on the cosplay, others are really interested in panels/guest speakers. I'm curious to know what all of your interests are. I met a guy who came to the con for the specific purpose of being in the Masquerade.
Personally, I go for a little of everything. I never really plan to see any panels; everything I do is really on whim, yet there are some specific things I always have in mind. I always want to meet some new artists in the alley, yet I know some people who don't even bother checking the alley out. So forum friends, why do you go to conventions?
