Get Your Geek On @ 3 Local Conventions

 

One of the advantages of being a geek in a large city is the wonderful conventions in my own backyard. I admit it. I am a con addict. I have been going to fandom conventions since 1984 and will probably still be going when I have to incorporate my walker into my cosplay. During March and April, I have three opportunities to get my geek on with one comic/scifi/fantasy convention and two anime conventions in town.

 

 

 

Conventional Wisdom: Teens @ Anime Conventions

 I have a confession to make. I am a fangirl. I love everything about fandom but one of my favorite things is conventions. I have been to science fiction, fantasy, anime, comic book and cult tv conventions. Conventions are great places to find the latest in anime and manga, not to mention t-shirts, plushies, action figures, and anything else you can imagine. Interested? In Houston, you  have two chances to get your fan on either this Halloween at Oni-Con or this Easter at Anime Matsuri. Here are some tips, and books, to make your con going experience fun and stress-free.
