I need to start catching up on things. One thing an started to notice is how some fandoms are starting to converge together. For example, fan conventions that serving more than one fan groups. Mewcon or Manga and Exotic Worlds Convention is an example; a convention that caters to both Anime and Science Fiction fans.
The Con: Mewcon or Manga and Exsotic Worlds Convention
The Place: Red Lion Inn Vancover WA
The Time 31 Dec to 2 Jan 2010
Mew con is an Anime, SF and Fantasy convention in Vancover WA. The convention is small and what I consider a relax-a-con. Relax a con is a term a friend came up to describe small convention that doesn’t have much in the way of organized events, so much of the time is spent with friends or lounging around.
My adventure started on Thursday 31 Dec 2009. I quickly rushed home after work then to the convention and picked up my badge. I did bring in my big Hello Kitty plush and like other conventions (Kumoricon Rainfurrest), she was a hit. I hung around before driving to East Vancover to find food. One gripe is, I misread the schedule and missed the opening ceremony because I assumed the opening ceremony would happen after the concert. Another gripe was the video room. It really had slim pickings, if Guy did not step in it would be empty. I went to the dace and hung around the outskirts until midnight to issue in the New Year.
Friday was more of the same, I spend the time playing Hello Kitty online or working on my art. There was not much in the way of panes to keep my interest. The person who was supposed to run the Animockery event was a no-show; Guy stepped in and salvaged things.
Saturday I had back to the con after a breakfast, today I only attended two panels, the Often Renamed Panel II and the Steampunk World panel. I stayed around till the closing ceremony before heading home.
Overall, even with all its faults I had a good time.
