So I'm thinking of going to Anthrocon this year, since I've heard mostly glowing reviews from everyone who's been there. But I'm not 100% decided--still really nervous about the whole idea! Baby's First Convention and all.
I'm mostly worried about not knowing enough people there, so I see folks I know for a few minutes and then spend the rest of the time milling around, looking at furry art (all well and good, but I kind of don't care about seeing furry art in person unless it's my friend's work or someone is drawing with/for me). I'm told room parties are the bomb, but I don't like going where I'm not invited. You must invite me over the threshold or I cannot enter. Just like a vampire.
Basically I'm making myself sound like a fleshy bag of neurosis and sweat, which may be true, but mostly I'm wondering A) who is going to AC this year, B) who has been there in the past, and C) the experiences of people in category B. Is AC worth the $50 and travel/hotel costs? Will I have a lot of uncomfortable, awkward encounters with creepy guys (I am female in real life), or is that a fake idea? Is anyone fun going who would actually hang around with me for more than a few minutes? Anyone who wants to invite me to swingin' room parties?
