Where do I even start? This con gave me mixed feelings, especially considering the great time I had last year. There was a lot of good and bad. So I'm switching up my journal format to talk about the pros and con of this year's Youmacon. So let's jump right in...
Highlights: Poorly organized, friends everywhere, meeting new people, gaming, hot tub, confusion, & delicious food.
They sneak up on you!
It was my first year at Youma and I had a good time. All my misfortunes were not con related, instead it happened whenever I left the convention center. Detroit cabs suck and the Holiday Inn has seen better days.
The convention has the feel of a small convention but had many attendees, which is no surprise that they are expanding to an extra venue next year.
I will likely come back next year, so long as I convince a few more friends to attend. We lost a few to various reasons at the last minute. They were missed.
Youmacon Highlights: Miss January, creative costumes, cool photos, nice weather, confusing venue, cabby drama, hangouts, and great rave.
