The Galveston Island Convention Center. Besides the size and elegance of the place, it was also expertly located next to a handful of hotels (the nice kind without the face eating roaches) and restaurants (IHOP FTW). Seriously, there were so many food options it wasn’t funny. There was literally 20 different places to eat at all within walking distance of the con plus right next door was a supermarket. Achieving diabetes was never so easy. Also, the beach.
3. Stuff to Do
If looking at all the awesome cosplay wasn’t enough, Oni-Con had plenty more to offer. A free 24 hour arcade, vendor booths with plenty of shirts, anime, manga, trinkets, swords, etc., live music (courtesy of Nobuo-Uematsu and Earthbound Papas, Saber Tiger, Alsdead, Dr. Awkward, and YTCracker), industry guests, rave parties, and larping i.e. more things to do than you can shake a Zanpakutō at, plus you’re in Galveston.So all in all, Oni-Con 2013 was a blast. Plenty of awesome things to do and see for an affordable price is usually high on my list of awesomeness.
