5 Fandom Friday: Conventions

5fandomfriday
I decided to finally start participating in 5 Fandom Friday: a weekly linkup hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. Considering my love for fandoms, I just had to start participating (before I’ve always been too busy).

I just love the idea of conventions, they’re so great for meeting like-minded people and they have such a sense of community! Unfortunately, we hardly have any here in Finland but it’s my goal to someday go to a proper huge convention either in the UK or the States.

5 Fandom Friday: Conventions I’ve been to or wish to attend

Animecon: A Finnish anime convention with so much fun stuff to do! From video editing and cosplay contests to dance lessons and art shows, this is the place to be if you like Japan-stuff! I have gone couple of times and it’s always a lot of fun.

Tracon: another Finnish anime convention with a very similar style to Animecon. I’ve usually found that Animecon has a better, friendlier atmosphere though. But both are fab!

Finncona free science fiction and fantasy literature convention in Finland, that changes location from one city to another every year. I’ve been there a few times and I just love the atmosphere. No better place for a bibliophile!

Charmed Convention: There’s a Charmed convention that has been organized a few times (if I remember correctly) in Paris and I love love love Charmed so obviously I’d LOVE to go!

Any Comic Con or Doctor Who convention: I think it’s obvious why I’d want to go to a Comic Con – they’re the best conventions! And there’s so much to see (I always read the programs even though I don’t ever get to go – boo to living in Finland!). Also, anything Doctor Who related is amazing in my books!

    Tracon or some other next academic year or the year after! Definitely. I already bought a wig. :D Though my friend commented that it was exactly the same as my hair, only slightly longer. XD

  • A CHARMED CONVENTION? Omgosh the nostalgia. I want to go to there. (Great list and super cute site, first time visitor!)

    • I’m such a huge fan of Charmed – I basically grew up watching the show :) And thank you so much, I’m glad you like my little corner of the internet! :D

  • B.

    I think it’s great to see show specific cons on these lists!

  • I’m so glad I found this! I had a couple friends who went to comic con in London last year… I was so jealous! I’d definitely like to go to a big one some day!

    • I would also love to go to London Comic Con! I guess we’ll just have to make into one of our goals for the future ^^
