This being my first DCon, I don't have the previous years to compare to, but it was an amazing experience. I got a ton of toys that I was looking forward to and some random ones that were pleasant surprises. Plus prints, books and a cookie. More importantly, I saw a ton of friends and finally got to meet a good number that I only knew through Instagram. Everyone was super friendly and incredibly nice. It was slightly surreal to see so many people in the flesh for once...it was like being starstruck in a sense. "I know you! That's what your voice sounds like?" Stuff like that. I traveled out alone but never felt lonely, thanks to all of the kind folks. DCon was killer!
