Hello!
Welcome to the topic on what your favorite thing to do at Cons is.
This is what you do (it's quite simple really):
First you type in,"My favorite thing to do at cons/ anime conventions is..."
Then you type what it is!

For example: I like to collect Gloomy bears, one for each year I go to Kumoricon (which is really one of my favorite things to do) or take loads of pictures of cosplayer's!

Have fun

I love going to panels and all my favorite events, but in all honesty, my favorite thing is just to walk around the con in my cosplay, go cosplay sight-seeing and soak in the atmosphere of the convention.

Walk around and watch everyone... Then hug them with their permission.

Mostly buying yaoi, hanging out with friends, and my most favorite thing is to watch the "public" just stare when they see what we're wearing, lol, that's one of my favorite things.

I usually just mill around the convention halls, posing for pictures when asked, and asking others to pose for pictures I'd like to take of them.
I'll attend panels if I see anything interesting, though the past two years KumoriCon hasn't really had many panels I found all that interesting (some voice acting panels last year, a Robotech panel the year before, can't remember what else I've been to).

I don't have any friends to hang around conventions with so that's out, though I wish I did, it'd be fun to have someone to hang around with rather than wandering around by myself.

I do try to pick up a keychain whenever possible as I collect them. I also try to find at least one Gundam model whenever I'm at Kcon, though last year I didn't buy one as I really didn't find many Gundam models at all. Weird.
But I made up for the lack of models there by buying them at HLJ.com. XD

I love just hanging out with friends and wandering around. (I just can't sit still at a con! It's like I develop con ADD. That's why I don't like going to panels LOL.) I also enjoy posing for photos. ;D

My favorite thing to do at anime conventions is... Karaoke! Also, posing for photos, eating Pocky, and picking up new anime swag. I always buy a button from every con I go to, I need to find a nice bag to bling out with all my buttons.

Looking at people's costumes.

I don't watch a huge diversity of anime so seeing all the different stuff out there, and maybe talking to them about how they made it, is vary interesting and fun.  Also, pretty girls dressing out of regular clothes is pretty hot ^.~

~ walking around and chilling with friends.

The current Tradition at SakuraCon is to order Pizza at 2-3am and watch a movie at the Hotel with a large group of friends.

Drink lots of Coke, run around at odd hours of the night, and, of course, COSPLAY!
