Hello everyone! It’s that time of year again – convention season!
This year’s Anime North has marked the fifth year since I started going to conventions, and the third (I think?) since I started cosplaying. It’s quite strange to think that I’ve been attending anime conventions for half a decade now! But I don’t regret anything, I’ve made so many new friends and had so many great experiences.
This Anime North was a strange one since we kind of lost motivation as the convention approached. A lot of it had to do with the fact that we weren’t able to put together our Atelier group like we had originally planned. My sewing machine broke about a week and half before the convention so a good amount of our costumes were rushed and attached with fabric glue. We were also at the Courtyard Hotel which was much further than where we usually stay (due to last minute booking) and we had to walk for about 15-20 minutes to get to the convention centre.
Our hotel was really nice! We stayed at the Courtyard Hotel, which is just next to the Marriott. Although it was far, the rooms were really nice. We booked a two person room with two queen beds. The room was spacious and there was a big bathroom!
We got to the hotel and unpacked. We hadn’t completely finished our Pokemon cosplays because my sewing machine broke. Ringo’s skirt was basically a cut and creased piece of fabric tucked into an elastic band that was died around her waist! Eheheh~
Headed to the convention after and met up with Karameru and Sami. Walking outside was death, it was about 30 degress outside and we were quite sweaty. We walked to the grassy area beside the convention hall and took some photos in the long grass!
