Aoi Uma Con 2013 Review
Hey guys Carla here to give you a little con review of Aoi Uma Con. When I say little I mean Natsu, Elfman, and I only attended Friday. So on with the review! Aoi Uma Con was a small con held in Louisville Kentucky at the Ramada Hotel and Conference Center.
Now being that it was a Friday there was not a lot of people in attendance. From what I gathered this was meant to be a small con, but on Friday I saw maybe 50 to 60 people that were not a part of the staff at the convention. Everyone knows that conventions always have a smaller attendance number on Fridays so this was to be expected.
The staff at the con was amazing! They were nice and courteous to you no matter if you are a guest, panelist, or general admittance. This year I have heard several reviews on conventions that had staff that were horrible to the people at the conventions, so it was a relief to attend a con that had staff that were nice and did not think that you were a bother to them.
The panels I did attend were amazing. There was a wide variety of panels to keep you busy. Although not all of them were to my liking, I did hear people say that they liked what they saw on the panel list. Every con knows a good panel line up equals happy attendees.
The two things that I was bothered by was that the location did not offer great spots for photos to be taken of cosplays. I myself am a cosplayer so I understood the little bit of frustrations the photographers and cosplayers had when wanting to snap some photos that did not have a car in the background. The second thing was that the convention did not have the whole conference center to themselves. Now it was a small conference center to start with so this is a somewhat important point. The largest room in the conference center was rented to (from what I guessed) was a sporting goods company. Other then those to things I was very happy with this convention.
All in all this was a very light and relaxed convention. I do recommend this con to anyone who wishes to go to a convention but does not want to deal with the hassles that the bigger conventions present. I myself do hope that I will be able to attend the whole weekend next year.
