View Full Version : Finding Fake Ants in the GTA

This is horrendously stupid to have to ask people. I need fake ants, no more than 1cm in length and a LOT of them (approx. 50 or more).

It's for my "Picnic table lolita" costume for MacTAC.

I checked some places online as well as eBay, but the packages are either too small and/or shipping to Canada's too high and/or they just won't ship outside of the USA.

I want to do this costume for the gag value, but I don't want to spend $20 on the dress, the shoes and everything else, and spend ANOTHER $10 just for a handful of plastic ants. -_-;;

Anyone know somewhere around the GTA that I can find these little things? I have time for one shot at it, so I don't have the chance to go out and hunt them down location by location (since I'll be back in TO only for only 1 weekend before MacTAC hits).

The cheaper the better, but I was thinking about $5 for 50 max since the costume's not likely to be worn again after MacTAC.

There's a little costume shop on Yonge Street between Wellesley and College, on the west side of the Yonge that sells TONS of strange stuff. Among the more useful things are Halloween wigs, vampire fangs, plastic swords, and lots of silly plastic novelty toys and stuff for loot bags. I'm thinking that might be a good place to check out.

You really can't miss it. There are tons of colored wigs in the front window and it looks really cluttered.

There used to be this chain of educational stores in the GTA called Schollar's Choice, or something like that.

I'll keep an eye out if I happen to find anything. I'm planning a trip to a costume store in Guelph on Friday and I'll take a look while I'm there.

I remember a Shino cosplayer at Otakon had assloads of random bugs he said he picked up cheap. Are you just looking for just ants or any sort of small, black creepy crawly type deal?

I picked up a pack of ants for you... it was like 1.50 for 100 I think... so you're getting a random gift next time I see you...

if they aren't right you can throw them at people... or something...

That is so true. XD At PMall I didn't even notice you leaving most of the time and youd come back dressed differently. o_O;
