      Re: Newbie to Alcon 2012!

      The first year I went the only person I knew failed to turn up on the first day and I had no way to contact him.
      Everyone was really great, they even found me somewhere to stay!
      If you stay over the dorms are a great way to meet people, if you're not sure what to say default to anime.
      <shameless plug> If you still end up having trouble finding people to talk to come down to the RPG room, we do a person-by-person introduction before the games, plus you have a pre-made conversation topic afterward </shameless plug>

      Alcon is always a great atmosphere. The best place to stay is Bede Hall because there are always parties going on around the various floors and outside in the quad. This year will be my 3rd Alcon and my 2nd as crew. The crew always gets run ragged but we're always on hand to help folks out

      Re: Newbie to Alcon 2012!

      Alcon '07 was my dirt ever con and it was one of the best things I've done in my life. It was weird the first day but after that made some great friends and memories I'll never forget.
      I've lost contact with a few people who have moved on from this place but there is always someone new and awesome.
      I can't wait to go this year so I can meet all the people from AL.

      Re: Newbie to Alcon 2012!

      My first ALcon was last year, it was also my first convention in general, I went on my own but made friends really easily when there, and I'm normally a very shy person.

      I've decided to go to Alcon 2012 and I'm wondering what to expect? Everything and Anything, Really be prepared for anything, including playing on a kiddies park at 3 o'clock in the morning
      Are people at Alcon welcoming and friendly? Extremely, the people I met at ALcon are some of the nicest people I have ever met
      Is it easy to make friends? Extremely, I'm one of the shyest people you will ever met, and I made loads of friends
      Does it matter if you don't come wearing cosplay? No you don't have to wear cosplay, I didn't last year, but be prepared for random things like a Sasori asking you to become one of his puppets for the day as I walked out my Dorm on the Sunday last year
      What was your first time going to Alcon like? The most amazing experience of my life

      Also if you are going by train by the time you are on the train to Leicester you will have met someone also going to ALcon (I met @MrPurple and we sat talking the whole time)

      Blessed Be
