Our Khaotic Weekend {Khaotic Kon 2013}

May 11, 2013

Khaotic Kon 2013! 

I don't know how many of you know anything about anime, manga, Jpop and such things, but Alexis is hyper-focused on this stuff. She has been for a long while. I've never been very into it (of course much of this stuff didn't exist when I was a kid). But last weekend I attended a con with the kids. I had a blast and so did they.

I don't always interact in social situations, but I watch people. What I saw that weekend impressed and fascinated me.

  • Everyone was so sweet. I saw no snobbery, "cliques" or any other negativity. Everyone was genuinely kind to each other. 
  • Alexis isn't alone in her hyper-interest in these things. I knew there were others interested in anime, J-pop, manga, etc. What I hadn't realized is that so many people were interested in all of the same things she is. Everyone there seemed to know everything about everything. 

Dreams come true at cons.

Alexis met Vic Mignogna, a voice actor in most of the anime shows she watches. She wants to be a voice actor one day and meeting him was a dream come true for her. 

Lorelai was a bit of mini-celebrity all weekend. She dressed as Hatsune Miku and, because of her petite stature and young age, she was a hit! All weekend she was being asked for her photo; if others could get a photo with her; and if others could get a hug from her. It was so wonderful for to be in character. It helped her step away from her social anxiety. Very positive! Best weekend EVER for these kids!
