I learned no one wants me dating their friends
I also learned that after 5 cons in 5 weekends I die a painful death (or at least my voice does!)

That was Troy dude. Several miles from Detroit. If you want to be confused, try actually going into the city! I've lived in Michigan all my life, even went to college for a couple semesters in Detroit, and I still get lost there! The only problem with the roads around the con was the construction. It's pushing the season limits, even for Michigan.

I learned that
1. The Con police do not like it when we have a party in the elevator and yell everytime the door opens

2.yelling conga line at an Anime Con where 99.99% of goers are hyper active teens (my self included) can lead to making some great friends as well as some really funny video.

*I learned I still can't dance normally, unless it's to ITG or DDR(arrows needed!)
*I learned I can flock men to me at 3am in the morning the game room while playing tekken and wooping them all with Christy.
*I learned it's wise to follow a stffer's advice when they attempt to save you from a perverted drunk...
*I learned I'm not into YAOI as much anymore. Or I've seen just about everything already shown lol.
*I learned it's not wise to give people $85.00 props to handle since some are VERY immature...
*I learned even some guys can pull off looking like a good Sailor Moon/Scout and still look hot doing it.
*I learned someone liked to turn the COLD air on in my room Friday night when it was really cold out...
*Anyone who ventured to Floor 3 claimed to need parka coats.
*Doug and the camera guy he was with are both crazy, but happy as can be when you feed them and give'em treats.
*I learned that one Stray Spoony Bard who stalked me playing Duel of Fates has lots of toy lightsabers...(I counted 5!)

Fix'd for great justice.

I really liked your Faust outfit. n_n You looked awesome in it- thumbs up-

What did I learn?

1.) People actually do like loli and are twisted beings for it. ( I don't care what the panel guys said, those girls were not of age )
2.) Even with people with the same exact interests as me - I can't seem to make friends easily.
3.) Yaoi is a popular topic. @_@
4.) Even though some people's cosplays weren't perfect the fun they had dressed up was intoxicating and made me deicide to dress up next year. n_n;
5.) Combining two and four together - if you are not dressed up, no one talks to you. u_u
6.) I hate Isuka due to Playstaion controllers. >_< I really wish they had the XBox version instead.
7.) Going to the con and not having a hotel room makes one very jealous of those who do.
8.) Raptor Jesus is our Lord and Savoir of the New World.
9.) Mentioning things are over nine thousand makes a few people in ANY crowd giggle.
10.) . . . . Naruto is a popular anime. xD

I thought of a few other things that were very very important that I learned....

1. Narutards are fun to play with, particularly when you're unofficially running the photoshoot.
2. It's not just ACen, Narutards make the best friends.
3. People do occasionally listen to me when I speak loudly and tell them to do things... like pretend to have incest or kill one another.
Animosity Cosplay!

1) I should have taken the Internets more seriously about the high levels of Yaoi fangirls.
2) I should have worked on my wig much sooner. Last minute spraypaint (the hair color stuff ran out too soon) doesn't stick to wigs.
3) Saving up only a week's salary isn't enough.
4) I'm a better Tetris player than I thought. :D

1. Not eating and living off of cafeine and sugar makes cons more fun

2. I should have talked to more people, just nodding and doing hand motions as Tobi doesn't make more friends.

3. Save more $$$$$$$$$$$$!!

--Never sneak up on Roronoa Zoro. He's capable of knocking off prosthetics.
--Flower arrangement foam (the green stuff) is not a good thing to make prosthetics out of, either.
--I need contacts. Having to switch glasses every time I needed to look at something was annoying.
