I am much more cautious about the cons I attend and who I room with. Dragoncon used to be the highlight of my year but I haven’t been since the pandemic started. Instead I’ve been looking at smaller cons and brainstorming ways to bring some of the fun & experience of a con to people who can’t attend anymore (or couldn’t attend to begin with). It’s a delicate balance since I’m chronically ill myself but I have hosted a large virtual cosplay event (with plans for more) and inspired a few of my friends to create/post their panels online. It’s also been tough finding people who still mask these days so I’m working on making a discord to connect covid conscious hotel roomies. However, due to a family emergency this project is on the back burner. If something like this already exists please let me know, I’d love to share it with my friends!
