This year’s Otakuthon was Awful-Heat-Wave Con! Since I nearly died of heat in my Margaret costume on Saturday, it got me thinking that I really should pick my future cosplays according to the temperature. The two cons we attend usually have 30°C + (90°F) weather, so it would be a smart idea to make lighter cosplays. Just something to think about, I guess!
The convention itself was nice. As soon as we got to Montreal, we started stuffing our faces on buns from the Chinese bakeries in nearby Chinatown (tradition)! Later on Friday we held our “Con-proofing your Costumes” panel at 8 p.m. which was fun as usual. This time we brought some examples to show people and also had a stack of our Cosplay packing checklist to give that I hope people liked.
