On October 26th, I attended Derpy Con 2019 for the first time. It was my first con that I attended alone and to be honest, I almost backed out. It was an almost 2 hour drive from my location and I hadn’t been feeling my best. However, I knew I would regret not going more than going so I got myself together and went.
To my surprise, going by myself was the best decision I made. My usual con partner, my husband, is a great person to go with but being myself forced me to actually talk to strangers, go to the panels and screenings, and truly explore. I was even able to do some interviews about diversity at con!
Overall, I had an amazing time at con and meeting lots of new people. Out of all the cons I’ve attended so far, I have to say Derpy Con was my favorite. The con was very organized, all the staff was super friendly, and it was a dope venue to be at.
Below are some pictures of some vendor items and cosplayers at con! Full video review will be coming soon.
