My Experience:

 

Pros

In year 25, Planet Comicon Kansas City celebrates its origin story as fans  embrace their inner nerd | The Seattle TimesOne of the positive things about the convention was the mass positivity radiating through the room. You could tell everyone was excited to be there and have a good time even though there were thousands of people. The food stand workers were excellent and were very efficient in getting everyone what they wanted. Each booth that you went to had a range of artists, from painted portraits of Star Wars characters to cute cartoon comics, the convention had a little something for everyone. The cosplay workers were also very kind to each person, always agreeing to take photos.

 

 

Cons

No Fun: Planet Comicon Kansas City Off For 2020 | KCUR - Kansas City news  and NPROne of the worst parts about the convention was its lack of authority and organizational skills. The line to get into the main building wrapped around two blocks. They had organized the line to where it would end at the front entrance then wrap around the building to get back to the front. As we got there around twelve o’clock, two hours after it had opened, the line was as long as when it opened. We stood at the front entrance, supposedly at the back of the line, for only a little bit until the workers told people to just make a mass line to go to the front entrance to scan the tickets. We got lucky, as opposed to people who waited for thirty minutes who were around the block.In year 25, Planet Comicon Kansas City celebrates its origin story as fans  embrace their inner nerd | WJTV

Another con was the management of the celebrity lines. Everything was so cramped and jumbled, you could hardly tell who was in line and who wasn’t. As a person who waited an hour in the celeb line, many people cut in front and behind us even though they weren’t there when we formed the line. And almost every celeb line we went to was capped, not even giving us a chance to actually stand in line. Maybe if there was better management among workers to form structured lines and times dedicated for autographs and photos, the convention would’ve been easier for everyone. 

 

ConclusionPlanet Comicon Kansas City | Visit KC

Overall I would recommend going to a convention at least once in your life! It is an overwhelming positive experience you get to share with the people around you who also like your interests. You get to see a wide variety of art, games, and cosplay.
