Hey all! So, I've had a few people ask me if I was going to attend Anthrocon next year, and I'm having a little bit of trouble. I have never been to Anthrocon (or any furry convention for that matter, only anime/comic conventions) so I don't really know what to think of it. So I thought I would ask anyone who has went, what do you think about it? Is it good, bad, okay, horrible, etc.? What was your experience like? What do you recommend to do there/do to prepare for the con/etc.?

Let me know what you guys think! Thanks in advance.

My mate and I have always enjoyed ourselves and I'd definitely say it's worth attending. It's best to find some friends to room with, and from experience we can tell you that it's not neccessary to stay at the Westin. The Omni and the Doubletree are pretty great too, plus you don't have to worry about the lines for the elevators. Always remember to bring enough clothes, food, and drinks to last the weekend. Pre-register so you don't have to wait in the atrociously long lines. Do what you;'d like, but try to not over extert yourself... there's so much to do that you can get overwhelemed. There's always the next year, so just enjoy yourself :3

Having Looked up the Info I think Anthrocon could be something I could ask to do next year, (after all I was in Pittsburgh this August and it looks to be a nice city), but I'm uncertain of doing it considering the likely high cost of it, (even attending for one day or two), and more especially the LARGE crowds that would be present. ^^; I know exactly where the convention would be held, by my guess based on where it was this past summer, (heck it's a walk from where we stayed in August).

 

So...I guess if I can't think of anything else to do for next summer as sort of a birthday thing, Anthrocon, (or Pittsburgh area in general), might be it.

I would suggest going. I went this past year and it was some of the most fun I've ever had. There is so much to do that you'll probably never be bored. One thing to say is that you have to be prepared to spend a lot of money on the hotel. Registration isn't too bad at a $55 minimum, but with hotel costs, food, and all of the merch you'll want from the dealer's den it can be expensive. Basically, go if you can afford it. Try to get friends to split the hotel with.

2016 was my first Con. I had a great time and fully plan on going next year.

If you have friends of a like interest I would see if you could talk them in to going too.

There is a lot to take in. Overwhelming if fact. You can not see everything.

Save your money though there is so much great stuff to buy (as i look around my office.)

Well at least you have this old guys thoughts. hope to see you there
