I'm hoping to make it again this year. We'll have to see how the money situation is though. I had a blast last year. At least I don't have to worry about where to stay since I have a friend up there. ^^

If I do go...Yugi (Yugioh) will be making the trip again for sure. As to other costumes I don't know yet. Maybe Ted from Suikoden IV and Rody from Suikoden III (again) I guess we'll see what happens.

Usachan, I assure you, if you're going the Moonies will be having a word with you about ripping off Chibi Lenne on that Yuna commission, and not paying her. : )


I'll probably be going, just not sure what I'll be wearing.

I can't go of course, but I'm just here in order to support this thread and convention XD;

I think we need to inform others that cosplay.com finally has other Canadian convention threads. Since it seems the majority of Can-Con goers on here are from Ontario areas...or at least for Toronto conventions.

I'm dragging alot more than I can handle. Lol.

Sakura from Tsubasa. Probably two, consitering I want to make one of her outfits for the midnight ball.

Ginny from Harry Potter. Quidditch version. <3 That one is going to be really hot.

Tifa from FF7: Advent Children. I'll be buying this one.. I don't feel like making it.

Rakka from Haibane Renmei. Her Summer outfit. Hopefully I can get the halo to stay up.

Maya Fey from Phoenix Wright. There's a bit of a group I am in that are going, should be a blast.

Patty from Lucky Star. I was asked to be in a skit, but I dunno any more. Cheerleader outfit. :D

Lady from Devil May Cry 4. Yes, I'll be bringing a Bazookaaa.

And now for the fight between two other cosplays, which one will win? Who knows.. This battle is between the lovely Konan from Naruto, with her beautiful wings of mass distructiooonnn Vs. The shinigami who is supposed to be a girl, but looks like a man, the Rem from Death Note.

I'll be cosplaying:
Mochizuki Ryoji from Persona 3
Arisato Minato from Persona 3
Takano Miyo from Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni (Kai)
Barasuishou from Rozen Maiden

Might bring Creed (Black Cat) but I doubt I'll have the suit case room for it xD
Might be making my nieces a cosplay each too, but I'm not sure yet.

First time trying to make it out to Anime Evo this year. But I heard there may be a Persona 3 group? So I'm probably going to try and get my Junpei or Bebe all together and work on my friend's Minato.

I may also be decked out in TJ!Naruto with a Sasuke... and I may just bring along anything else I particularily loved from the season, seeing as Ev is like the wind-down con at the end of the season.

UtakoYeow
05-01-2008, 02:31 PM

Someone from Ranma 1/2, have not decided who yet. Maybe a couple of characters.
Kagome - Inuyasha
Rin - Mermaid Saga
Anna - Shaman King
Ashitaka - Princess Mononoke

Portland, Oregon. Labor Day Weekend, Saturday through Monday.

I've wanted to go for a couple years now; lots of my friends from Sakura Con attend Kumori. I've got more history with AE, but the fact that the dorms aren't available this year might hurt my decision if I'm forced to choose between them. I liked staying on campus.

Kioko
05-22-2008, 01:13 AM
aw man, the arn't renting dorms???? *looks up at the sky* WHY!?

Anime Evolution Staff might say otherwise but I honestly think that the reason that the dorms are not being offered is because the university residence does NOT want to deal with convention people anymore. (It CANT be renovation... at least not for towers B, C and D, which were the only rooms offered last year, they were JUST build 3 years ago.*Used to live in them as a student*) I live as a student in residence and have talked to SFU staff about the convention and they have give me very bitter and short answers about how they really didnt like hosting the con goers due to many issues. I myself and a friend of mine were actually treated EXTREMELY poorly by residence when we tried to book a room last year to the point that they sent us threatening and vicious emails about how AE convention goers act like children... And being 20 at the time you can imagine how upset that made me and even more upset that they had this perception of AE con goers!

I really think they lack of campus residence is really going to hurt the conventions nightlife. (It didnt really too much of one to start with... but still!) Especially since I am not 100% sure on this but word of a shuttle is really up in the air and looked to be a bit too undecided for it to actually happen. Instead they want ppl to skytrain and bus.... or just drive?? I am lucky I am staying with a friend because I live to far to actually drive in every day.XD

Lack of residence aside I am sure the AE staff will work their best like they always do to produce an AWESOME convention.

I will be cosplaying as:

Suiseiseki [Rozen Maiden]
Maka Alban [Soul Eater]
Renton [Eureka 7]
Yoko [Gurren Lagann]
+One more 8D

I am not sure about the last one because I have to see what my friends lists are looking like since I have groups with them.^^

I also wanted to add that if anyone was interested in July my photography partner and I (We are known as ohSNAP (http://ohsnap.limitbreak.ca/web/)) are hosting a photoshoot for local Vancouver cosplayers at UBC on July 13 and it is open to anyone and everyone photographer and cosplayers alike. For more into you can check the Anime Evolution Forums OR the site.

Cant wait to see everyone and good luck on costumes!!!

I've actually found the AE con-goers to be very nice and not as hyper/obnoxious as they can be in the states, at some cons in particular. Too bad though that the university thinks otherwise of them. Of course I have no clue what happens in the dorms as I go because of friend of mine lives in Mission and I stay with her.

Sucks about the whole dorm thing though.

Always, the evil especially if there's under age drinking involved. -_-

Kioko
05-26-2008, 03:57 AM
As far as I know what OtakuNeko-chan says about alcohol is pretty accurate. One year when the townhouses were still offered there were a large number of underage alcohol poisoning leading to the ambulances showing up constantly. *shrugs* I guess it was cases of irresponsibly, vandalism as well as room stuffing by a few.

There is also the matter of SFU hosting a lot of sporting events and more often then not these 'athletes' have been hostile to the con goers. (Instead of just leaving them alone like we were to them.) One year it was boys rugby and they were EXTREMELY rude to the convention goers. There was reports of them pushing cosplayers, throwing rocks at them and verbally assaulting them as they walked to the convention center. So immature. At least last year it was a bit better as it was girls volleyball but there were still comments made by them.

Sadly the few have kinda wrecked it for the many when it comes to the universities views on the convention. Last year the amount of garbage that was left around in the AQ Gardens (pond area) left even me a bit ashamed of being a con goer.

Ah well...

Sucks about the whole dorm thing though.I can't say much about last year as I wasn't there, though I've heard reports.
In 2006, on the night before the convention started I couldn't find the people I was sharing a townhouse with and ended up knock on the door of every townhouse that had lights on at the time looking for them. There were a number of people in the courtyard between the main block of townhouses drinking.

Some people in 06, and I'm told in 07, treated the ponds up near the bus stop as a trash can. Some people had also trashed the townhouses they were staying in. It's more of a case of the few screwing things for the many.

From what I understood, alcohol + cosplayers + under age= a whole lot of sick messes. I’m sure the poor maid quite her/his job the next morning when she/he saw vomit covering every surface. Yam U can see why they’d say ‘no more’ and I can’t blame them. I also really wouldn’t want a bunch of wasted partiers banging on my door at three in the morning… trust me, it’s not fun to wake up and have to deal with that >_< It’s a shame because I was sort of counting on the dorms but now I have no other choice but to find a motel somewhere and that will get $$$ something that I lack greatly T_T But, there’s nothing I can do to change that I suspect, I just hope AE’s economy doesn’t suffer because I know a lot of islanders like me who plan on going there and (I think) are still under the impression that the dorms are still there…..

Yeah, 'twas a big let-down to hear that the year I decide to go is the year the dorms are no more, especially after hearing about how some people overbooked rooms to the extent that each resident paid like $3/night (no, that's not a typo :lost:)

The AE forums have been buzzing about hotels/hostels/skytrain routes though, so hopefully there won't be too many people who skip out...

The AE forums have been buzzing about hotels/hostels/skytrain routes though, so hopefully there won't be too many people who skip out...

I am sorry... but room stuffing the room so much that its only $3/night... THATS one of the reasons why residence wants nothing to do with the con. And why last year they had to actually set up GUARDS thats right GUARDS down at the bottom of the dorm to try to monitor ppl who do that as well as the alcohol situation. (And boy did they apparently do a bad job. They hassled my friend and his WIFE for staying in one room but didnt touch those over stuffer. Thats just upsetting.) I have no beef with drinking but when people are not responsible about it then they are just fools. BUT the room stuffing that much? I really look down at that. Theres nothing wrong with two ppl sharing one room... and maybe 3... (We all room stuff at cons.) but its only $45 a night for one room.XD I understand anime can be an expensive hobby trust me one of my costumes this year has already surpassed $300. But thats just not being fair to the residence and if you cant afford $45 a night people might want to rethink their hobby... Or get a better job.

As for hotels/hostels/sky train routes... From the convention hotels its a 3min Skytrain ride and 10min bus to the top of SFU. The only problem is that the Skytrains and bus DO stop working past 12:30am. So if people plan on staying really late at the con they will not be able to transit back down the mountain. But then again AE doesn't really last that late usually so it should not be that much of a problem.

And as for transiting from Richmond... >< My friends do that themselves. Its a 40min bus ride, 30min Sky Train ride and then a 10min bus ride.XD It's a long way. But doable with a Ipod or good friends.

I remember last year, the mess left was horrible, and I distinctly remember the piece of pizza floating in the pond as well. Horrible.

Lately I’ve had to try and convince my friend that there was being no dorms/townhouses for she thought (Still does) that they would be there this year. The whole matter is getting rather confusing and frustrating, I understand that they would have their own reasons for not letting the con goers rent out the rooms, just wish they would make things more clear. That way people who were confused wouldn’t be any more.

It is pretty fun though other than the mess and the booking where you are going to stay matter. I think it was last year (or ’06 can’t remember) there was a bride and I think some people from her part walking around where the grass pyramid thing was where my friends and I were asking what was going on. It was slightly awkward, and fun to see their reactions when we told them what it was. Though I haven’t heard of the rugby or volleyball teams coming through that surprised me that people would do that o.o

Anyway, this year I’ll be cosplaying as ten-year-old Riku (From Kingdom hearts, you know those flash backs, yeah) with my friend being ten-year-old Sora and maybe Kairi if we can get her to come. Also, I’m planning on doing Penelo (FFXII) and possibly Pleinair (Disgaea) if I can get her done in time, most likely without Usagi-san.

I'm planning on attending AE this year with my boyfriend. This will be my first con outside of the states (actually, even outside of Southern California). I'm probably going to stop by just for one day though... since I'll be flat broke from Anime Expo and paying for my plane ticket to Canada. Lol. Do a lot of people usually cosplay at AE?

Anyways my boyfriend and I are planning on doing one of the following:

Naruto: Sakura + Kakashi
Bleach: Lilinette + Stark
Vampire Knight: Yuki + Kaname
Chobits: Chii + Hideki
Ragnarok Online: Lord Knight + High Priest

It kinda hinders on what my boyfriend wants to do. The simplest would be the Chobits cosplay since it would take very little effort on his part. But ideally our dream cosplay is the Ragnarok Online pair.

Hope to see you guys there!

All right! So I've got accomodations settled. I'm sharing a hotel room with a few others, and it's actually going to be a little cheaper than if I'd gotten a single dorm room for three nights. And I just sent in my registration yesterday so it'd be postmarked in time for pre-reg. All set!

Now just to put the money aside for the hotel/gas and a little shopping, and finish my cosplays. I don't want to bring my sewing machine again. Gotta save room in the car for my bike! (Doing Kagome, so I have to bring it again.)

I'm hoping to make it to the ball this year...we've got the cutest cosplays for it (see avatar).
