I first traveled out to CAPCon in April 2012. That year was the second offering of The Chicago Age Players Convention. Every since, I’ve made that springtime trip to the windy city – watching CAPCon grow. The journey itself was amazing but seeing how the convention brought in more and more people each year, new and returning, was mind blowing.
This year, 2014 – CAPCon sold out to its allowed capacity. I could hardly fathom how a single-fetish convention could be so popular. But it was and it still is.
I write this blog posting in early December 2014. And at the time of this writing, two things are truth:
#1 – CAPCon 2015 is open for registration and tickets are available now.
#2 – The tickets are going fast – faster than any year prior. And when CAPCon 2015 is sold out to its capacity, it’s sold out.
I state these two truths before anything else to drive at a point. On several occasions in the past few years, I have seen people try to get into an event after it has been sold out or after the registration closed. And when they weren’t granted a ticket, they got onto websites like FetLife and complained.
Some even went so far as to takes digs at the events themselves. I found this to be a little strange as it seemed that those events were something they wanted to go to and were interested in … until they couldn’t get in because they had waited too long.
CAPCon is an event you don’t want to wait until the last minute to get off the fence about going to. Because, at that point in time, you may not be able to get a ticket. (And hotel crashing is frowned upon.)
There are many ABDL gatherings, from munches to house parties to hotel conventions to campground get-togethers. And none of them are the be-all end-all of the rest. I could talk about all of them, detailing what each of them offers. But this is posting about CAPCon. So …
Here is a link to all the ABDL gatherings that I am aware of:

Now … back to the subject of CAPCON 2015.
CAPCon stands for The Chicago Age Players Convention – dreamed up, created, planned and implemented by Chicago area Age Players. It is a yearly age play convention in a hotel near the Chicago area. From classes to pageants to activities to podcasts to vendors to an enormous play space to the infamous ball pit and to so much more, this event will open your heart, open your eyes, open your world and change you … both literally and figuratively. LOL
It is an ABDL / age play convention that caters to the pure-n-innocent side of the interest. But that’s just in the convention spaces. What you do in your hotel rooms is your business. But please be safe about it!
Having been to several of these conventions now, I can speak intelligently about how people remain pure-n-innocent by day, but get dark at night. However, there is no prerequisite to being dark. If that was the case, I wouldn’t be there myself.
There is also no prerequisite to being a relationship in order to attend. There are just as many single people there as there are couples.
CAPCon is for everybody.

I can not encourage you enough to attend. But don’t wait to the last minute to decide because at that point – the decision may not be up to you anymore.
In the very near future, CAPCon will sell out an entire hotel. But until that day, they will have a limit of attendees they are allowed. And that’s it.
CAPCON 2015, the strive for five, will be bigger than all the others prior – with more to do and more memories awaiting you.
