How do you make friends at the more antisocial conventions?
Being at PAX makes me long for Sakuracon where people will just run up and glomp you if they like your outfit where as at PAX no one sees your outfit because that would mean looking up from their DS.
My favorite part of last year was playing "Spot the girlfriends". The people there looking around trying to make eye contact with someone, anyone, because they have no idea what is going on but they are holding the hand of someone very interested in whatever happens to be at the one booth and so the "girlfriend" is dragged far away. I put girlfriend in quotes because even though my boyfriend asked me to go with him he didn't really know about anything that was going on. Seriously, boy hasn't even played Portal.
I'll be crossing my fingers in hopes of finding some other friendly cosplayers to talk to. Really, finding anyone to talk to would be nice.
