5:59AM - Con survival.
Next summer, I'm going to my first anime con (Anime Evolution, in Vancouver). Although this is small as cons go, I'm kind of not a crowd person, so I'm about as nervous as I am excited.
Does anyone know of any con survival guides or anything of the sort on the web? Or alternately, could any con veterans give me some tips on how to stay sane during the madness? I'll be there with two (hopefully three) people, and I'll be staying with my sister and her husband rather than at a hotel, so that'll give me a good home base from which to recover. I guess I'm just trying to avoid any nasty shocks by asking what these kinds of things entail.
If anyone's been to this particular con, tips would be especially welcome! How's the layout, how big is the space, how much walking will I be doing (I've got chronic pain issues and will likely be in bad shoes because of my costume, so I have to pace myself), how many areas are there for sitting/refreshment/etc. But if not, general tips are still appreciated!
(Don't worry, I'll be bathing every day ;D That's the one thing I always hear - WASH YOURSELF!)
Thank you so much, you guys! I would've been lost without some of these tips. I appreciate it so much.
