Looking for Opinions on going to fanime alone

(1/3) > >>

Tsuruneru:
Hello,

Long story short, i would go to fanime every year since maybe 2012 and get a hotel room with a couple friends and cosplay. This year i don't have any friends and also very anti social. I'd just cosplay and walk around without talking to anyone but then become a little Jealous of those who have friends that go together. :P

My question is, is anyone else going alone or have gone to conventions alone and how was it for you?

Kite:
Well it does get a little lonely when you walk around on your own.

But it's easy to strike up a conversation with lots of people with plenty of interesting things to talk about.

Just a matter of what you are aiming in terms of experience.

Tsuruneru:
Honestly just the basics. Im too much of a wuss to walk up to anyone and start a convo. The only time someone would talk to me is to ask to take a picture when I'm cosplaying but that would be the end of it. But yeah basics like, how does one feel when they are alone for the full weekend, what do they do and how long are they there per day. I'll be cosplaying Friday-Sunday and just walking around or the arcade. Not a solid plan by myself. Thanks for replying btw.

Kite:
Well I either look for something interesting or do something interesting. Generally to amuse myself.

Panels are a good place with a limited amount of people to do some socializing with a subject you might be interested in.

Is there a particular reason you're not with your friends this year?

Tsuruneru:
Yeah thats mostly the arcade for me unfortunately. Outside of there, not much else interests me. I think panels are also very limited this year too? The socializing is a me problem for being antisocial.

I would only go with my friend who id also room with but this year he just mentioned that its just him and his girlfriend rooming together this year. I'd assume its to lower chances of contracting covid but since then he hasn't really replied to me. So im assuming ill be going alone and just walking around or in the arcade.

I feel like i should have prepared by going to the movies alone or something :P But yeah just was a long shot to see how others feel or what they do when at conventions by themselves and are too nervous to talk to other attendees.
