Just a general question for all you Predator costumers out there. I'll admit I'm a noob to the site and was wondering if you guys just go to Comic-Cons or if you also go to Anime Conventions. Cuz I know any Predator would be the biggest hit EVER at the anime con I go to every year! Do any of you guys have a plan on where you're going to be next?

The members individually decide which cons they go to. San Diego Comic Con, Dragon Con in Atlanta & New York City Comic Con are usually the biggest & members all over the country attend. The smaller cons usually only see Preds local to the con. Usually.

Oh I see. I was wondering why I didn't see any Predators at Chicago Comic-Con last year. That explains it. Well if anyone happens to want to take a roadtrip to Chicago around May by all means come to ACEN!!! Aw now I really want to go to Ohayocon! lol^^

I know one that is always there but last year he was only suited for a few hours. It was very hot in the convention center in Rosemont last year. I maybe suited this year, maybe see ya then. :D

I'm going to MarsCon in Bloomington, MN on March 4-6. It's a general-interest sci-fi convention, not an anime convention. I haven't been to MarsCon yet, although I know some of the organizers and a number of people who go there. And, of course, I'll be suiting up as the Predator and going on the hunt there. I'd sort of like to have a new costume there to enter into their Masquerade, but I won't have any sort of time to get one done in the next two months.

Anime Detour is our local anime convention, also in Bloomington over the April 1-3 weekend, but I don't go to that. I'm not an anime fan, and I don't have that many friends who go there, so I'd sort of feel out of place. Minicon is the longest-running science fiction convention in the Twin Cities, and this year their convention is April 22-24. They're more focused on serious science fiction, particularly literature, so I don't go to that one.

My favorite local convention is CONvergence, held every year around the July 4 weekend. This year, it's June 30 through July 3. Again, it's in Bloomington, MN (a suburb of Minneapolis), in the Bloomington Sheraton hotel. The hotel looks like this:

OK, that's actually me in a Gamera suit about to demolish a styrofoam replica of the Sheraton. CONvergence is my favorite local convention because it has a lively fan base, all sorts of interesting programming in several tracks, a lot of excellent costumes, and a kick-ass Masquerade. It's worth coming here from out of town.
