Aki Con 2016 – The Finale | Convention Vlog

My last planned convention for the year wrapped up yesterday–Aki Con! This is Aki Con’s last year after nine years. I’ve personally attended two (counting this year), and I genuinely had a fun time. It’s an incredibly relaxed convention and everyone is so friendly from the staff to the con goers.

Aki Con holds a special place in my heart.

Without further ado, please watch my Aki Con 2016 experience:

My next convention won’t be until March of 2017–Emerald City ComiCon.

What is your next convention?
