I'm sure that some of you have heard of Anthrocon? (http://www.anthrocon.org/)

Well, this year, if you plan on attending an Anthrocon, you can meet me in person. Hopefully I'll be registered there as one of the assistants. :)

Hmmm. Interesting. Never been to one of those (but then again, I;ve never done any kind of conventions perioid, outside of professional trade shows.) I'd have to look into this....

Way out of my league as far as price range goes, and the number of attendees. Is there no personal contact? I'd feel like that I was back at high school, stuffed...

I've learned how to go wfor less money then most would think possible

At dragon*con pretty much anything goes and i go with friends so i have people to hang out with and have fun. It's the worlds biggest and best party and the costumes are awsome. You name a costume and it is there:D :D

I allways go with a group of friends from the net and other forums. We split a room between 5 of us and it only ends up costing us about $180.00 each of us for the room for 3 nights. Friends, family and I in atlanta pick the people in our group to and from the airport and provide transportation and a place to stay before and after the Con. Most of us arive a day or two before hand and stay at a friends. Then everyone piles into two car's and pile all the laugage into the back of my truck. There is a nice food court with resonably priced food connected to the confrence center and if you get you're ticket now there only round 40-60 bucks for the entire week.

last year it only cost me around $500.00

ticket----------->$80.00 ( i didn't get my ticket till a few days before it)
gas-------------->$80.00
food------------>$50.00
beer------------>$40.00
hotel room--->$180.00
parking-------->$12.00 (don't park at the Conv. center it's 20.00 a night)
souvineres---->$58.00
--------------------------------------
total cost-----$500.00 (give or take $20.00)

Y'know, I've heard of Dragon*Con, but I've never actually been entirely interested in a convention consisting of mostly reptilians.

Heh. I think it's more a name. Correct me if I'm wrong, WhiteLion but from what I gather, the largest faction is the StarWars fans. I have 2 (possibly 3) costumes planned for thins and I don't plan on doing any Dragon types. Although breathing fire would be fun...

There'sd a fury con here in huntsville every year. It's called the 'Rocket City fur meet', it's about 10-15 min away from my house :D

Rocket City Fur Meet webpage (http://narf.wereanimal.net/)



At dragon*con there's everything.
last year there were star wars, star trek, Aliens & preditors, Warhmmer, D&D, LOTR, and just about every other costume you couldpossibly dream of. Even a lot that you wouldn't even ever think of :lioncool
There was even a group of guy's who came as British WW2 soldiers and another as German soldiers :D


And in a Con of 30,000 people, most of which have pointy weapons, most people tend to be really nice :D

One would hope. I'd hate to see a fight break out. In the sprit of "Sharp, pointy objects" and sice we're talking about D*C, this is one of the costumes I'm going to be using. It's a Dark Elf (A"Drow") Battlemage.

Most dragons live for tens of thousands of years. I'm sure that they have the ability to be civilized. ;)
