Bad things about AD.
*Getting badges took 1 hour 40 min in long line.(with all our AA gear)(Even though the con knew ahead of time everyone was for sure coming)
*No separate artist alley reg.
*Not wearing line ready shoes means I was physically in pain for last 40 min in line.
*Overfull con = claustrophobia
*Not enough comics!
*The SMELL! SO BAD.
*Having to use fabreeze, a lot.
*Convention concessions selling hot dogs + sweaty teen fans + poor ventilation = extra bad smelling con.
*Having to be escorted out of the AA during the cosplay.
*Feeling old and out of touch with anime fans who seem mostly interested in bleach and naruto and consumerism.
*Being really tired, why do cons make one so tired?!
