I really haven't attended many con in my time (2 and i only got into the cosplay thing for the second one) but I really found myself inspired by all the Costumes and left the Convention with a dozen new idea's.
Does this always happen? Things like a Lantern/Mandorelian warrior or an Orange Grizzled old Gold Prospector Lantern (A la SteamPunk) . It is because I'm still new and it's fresh to me? Or is it always going to be like this.
