This past weekend I went to MomoCon. My first since I moved here to Atlanta (more in another post). It’s a little different then I’m use to. It took me about an hour to park and an hour to get registered. By the time I was in, I missed two panels I wanted to see. I honestly didn’t think it would be so big and in a hotel until I was at the place. There were only about two registrars, one for cash and the other for credit. I thought that could done better. The cosplayers were plenty but not many were professionals. Some of them looked like they bought their costumes online. I’m not dissing it, it’s just an observation. I love cosplayers of all kinds. What I hate (I found out while experiencing MomoCon) is when I ask for a picture and they don’t pose. It turns out it’s a pet peeve of mine. I asked two Inuyashas for photos and they either sat or stood there with a blank look on their face. It was very disappointing for me, I deleted the photos right after. It was bring the experience down 😦
The guests were pretty good, a nice variety. I missed some panels because of registration but I missed others because I planned my day badly. There were about 2 or 3 voice actors from Futurama (my favorite show) doing a script reading of “The Matrix”, I missed that. What a shame! The panels I did go to were not that great. Either people showing a video, ranting about something, or just taking questions (though that’s not that bad). I spent a lot more than I wanted to and waited a lot more than I wanted to. It felt over-crowded at times for such a small venue with many different levels. My overall experience was okay but I doubt I would go back next year. They were more negatives than positives at this convention. ComicCon is next week but I don’t know if I should go. I know it will be great but I might just wait till next year… we’ll see!
