It's complicated. I love the loud music echoing through the halls and crowds cheering, I love watching people having fun and laughing, I love seeing such amazing cosplays in person and all the characters I love just casually walking around, the workshops and mini events look really exciting (jojo pose contest, cosplay skits, drawing, japanese, karaoke, concerts), and being in an atmosphere full of things and people that share similar interests really sounds like something out of this world to me.
but I hate drunk/high people and I absolutely DESPISE the alcohol/weed smell, people pushing and stepping on eachother, snotty brats running around with no parents, harassers/gropers, people who just go to point and laugh, people who think axe spray is a substitute for a shower, people who know the place is crowded and everyone's trying to move but still stand in the middle of nowhere in groups, long ass lines and shitty staff who let friends break through said lines, etcetera.
It's really complicated. I'm excited but then it turns into anxiety.
I spoke to my tall buff friend I can hide behind and he agreed to go with me a few hours of one day, so there's that, I guess.
I should specify, the noises I mind are specific loud irritating noises next to my ear like screeching, speakers on full ear rape bass and no treble (or viceversa), repetitive obnoxious sounds, and stuff like that.
It's the main con in the capital of a small european country.
I don't think they're bullying, they're just being honest... but thank you kind anon.
