    I hope the exhibit hall has some fools selling cool Bleach shit for me to waste money on. :hs: Otherwise I will be very disappointed.

    if you're just in it to look at cosplayers, you don't need to pay. the few times i went years ago, i was able to walk around most areas just fine. i just couldn't really do anything :o

    This is true. The cosplayers all hang out in and around the convention center and adjacent hotels. There's plenty of stuff to check out without having to pay anything. The admission gets you into the main events, like panels and contests/competitions and the exhibition hall where all the dealers sell stuff. Last year I saw Linda Tran even had a booth. She was signing autographs and posing for pics and shit. :coolugh:

    i've never actually bought anything from the exhibit hall though. living next to huge japanese and other asian communities in LA, i already have access to all of that for much less :o

    there are also art exhibits. you could also meet artists that are willing to draw things for you. some are free. some aren't. some are real professionals. some like to call themselves "captain charicature".

    cosplayers can participate in events such as the masquerade thing. it's kind of like a talent show for cosplaying. i've always wanted to watch, but never got the chance :hsd:

    they're roleplaying. if people are roleplaying and sex isn't involved, of course it's the dorkiest thing ever
