i have only been to a anime convention once and that was a JAFAX one. I went there with my dad. I was soo excited about being able to go. But when i got there i was so nerves. I didnt know what to do. I just walked around and looked at stuff. I eventuly bought a Magic Knight Rayearth comic and left. I want to go to the next JAFAX convention in June, but i think i might me all nerves like before. This time i want to dress up to. Do you have any tips to make me less nerves?
Uhm, not really. We're not psychologists that can help you overcome fears and nervous issues. Just remember that there's no logical reason for you to be nervous -- everyone is there for the same reason you are.
I can offer one tip, though. Print out a schedule of events from the convention web site before you go and plan to do things. If you just wander around waiting for something exciting to come to you, you'll be waiting forever.
