Anime North 2013: Bad timing edition!!
- Our friend Sonia got food poisoning from eating at Burger King at a rest stop in Ontario on the way over. She was the one driving (and the only one with a drivers licence at that) so the drive to Toronto was terrible. Fortunately, she got in better shape just in time for the beginning of the convention.
- The weekend was so cold and windy! While it’s usually 25-30 °C during the con, it was barely over 10 °C this year. That’s awful considering the convention mostly takes place outside and many people plan their costumes according to the usual heat. I’m still trying to fight off the cold I got last weekend ;_;
- Power outage at the Double Tree hotel Sunday from 10 pm to 6 am.
Anime North is in one day and this year we’re ready! Actually, it’s only next weekend, but as usual we head over to Toronto on Wednesday to have time to relax and hang out before the convention. We’re hosting our “How to Con-Proof your costumes” panel, but this year we also have a new panel about foundation garments for cosplay. Come see us talk about underwear, we promise to keep things interesting!
Let me show you our progress in pictures! Actually, we’re almost ready, me being the one that still has the most work left to be done since I decided to completely do over my corset for Catherine about one month ago. We’re heading over to Toronto next Wednesday so that leaves us only 5 days to get everything finished!
Our cosplay schedule is:
Friday: Catherine and Katherine from Catherine
Saturday and Sunday: Elizabeth and Margaret from Persona 3 and 4
On Sunday at 12 pm we’re hosting a panel on cosplay construction with VickyBunnyAngel and Ani_BEE. See you there~!
