Probably my fave was the Girls of Gaming photoshoot, especially when the two guys jumped in, so all the girls turned their weapons against them ^^"

My friend and I were sitting in the lobby for no reason (like everyone always does) and this random guy came by and started coughing and he fell to his knees and then flat on the ground. he got up and walked away 10 seconds later. So random and yet so funny.

also when I was cosplaying Winry, one of the guys in the delaers room who was selling stuff saw me looking at stuff on the table and said "is that a real wrench?" and I said yes and he asked "can I borrow it?" and he starting putting up boards while using my wrench!

-During the Masquerade, the dude sitting in front of me took his shirt off and threw it down to the audience (edit: we were seated in the first two front balcony rows). He was sitting shirtless for a couple of entries before he got cold and rushed down to retrieve his shirt. Fun, lol.

-While waiting in line for the Masquerade, I saw a girl cosplaying as a cow (...) holding a sign that says "Will dance for a better place in line". Sadly, noone took her up on the offer. I probably should've since this huge hair guy waiting behind me reeked of B.O.

-MOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES! Need I say more?

-angela concert left my er... left ear deaf for a while.

-Just being in the audience in the masquerade was lots of fun. Probably one of the greatest moments in my weekend.

The whole thing was memorable for me, being this is my first con.. but one thing I wont forget was the kid directly behind me during the masq constantly screaming YAOI!!!!! over and over and over and over and over and yada yada yada.. at one point my brain was shaking each time she shrieked.. but it was just a totaly awesome time. Cant wait for next year!

Oh ya, did anyone else hear of a convention beying held in december at the same place as CNA?

D-Tac, it happened last year, I heard that the year before that it was in November too, so it's basically just known as the Winter TAC (Toronto Anime Con), I think anyways. But yeah, it's held in the same place as CNA, run by the same people too I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong on any of this, just going by what I believe to have been told before.

I have to say my most memorable moment is the random Leon who walked up to my friend and I, said how Sailor Moon changed his life, and how Sailor Jupiter was his favorite, then proceeded to hug me. He saw me various times through Saturday and hugged me, and as I was about to leave we bumped into one another one last time and he gave me a kiss goodbye. T'was cute and fun getting such attention ^_^

My greatest moments.... I was cosplaying Kamio Akira from Prince of Tennis on the first 2 days, and on the first day I had a sign on my back that said "SLAP ME!! I'm the birthday boy!!" and people actually did... (that wasn't the greatest moment... XD)
Well I guess it has to be being the first person to enter the concert (besides the VIPs who I'm crossed with) after lining up for 4 hours, and the first person to enter the Q&A session XD
I'm so obsessed......

hmmm Greatest Moment... I have to say the random bumping into Laura Bailey at the con and a unexpected visit from Chris Sabat. It was so awesome talking to them. But my number one greatest moment is the randomness of becoming Archy's wife ^^;; lol It was definitely amusing and humourous ^^ *huggles Archy* Overall the con was great! ^^

My greatest moment was being in the Masquerade for the first time and as well doing the yaoi skit. I was the Naruto (along with Sasuke, Joey and Kaiba) in the skit that was doing the Lady Marbalade song, Moulin Rouge. That, I would have to say is my greatest moment. And as well meeting a lot of new people and seeing the voice actors ^-^

Saturday night, in general. The hotel room, with Kim, Carly, Dan, and Jay. You know it's memorable when you can't remember half of it.

Except, y'know, Darknesses.

It's a celebration.

I'd have to say that my weekend's greatest moment was today. The group of friends that I was hanging out with throughout the CNA weekend and I were doing something called "The Horse Riding Fight". Basically one person would ride on a "horse" composed of three people and the point of the game was to try to take off the bandana off the opponent (or opponents) heads. It was so funny when we tried it, but it was soooo tiring. When we tried to do it a second time, security told us to stop. XD. We went around asking people but NO ONE wanted to try it!! Grr... Oh well.. maybe some other time.

It was something like this: (see attachment)

I have to say one of my fave moments was during the Masquerade when the Joker cosplayer proposed to Harley Quinn on stage. It was the sweetest thing!!! Overall, the entire con was great! Now the wait til Anime North...

My favourite moment had to be the Ragnarok Online photoshoot. I wasn't wearing my glasses at the time, but from what I was able to see, it was packed, and felt like we shut down a fair portion of the lobby. It was awesome. And I love WhiteMage for being my constant RO photo buddy. Much love. ^_^

My other favourite moment(s) were attacking Mekou-chan on Friday and playing with her etch-a-sketch wig. Because I'm evil.

Oh yes, and can't forget the old country jokes. And that's what con's about, all the random insanity. ^_^

These are a few of my great experience:

-On saturday when me and my friends randomly started to do the macerana.

-Our random photo shots on saturday and sunday

-girls of gaming photoshoot

-the whole friday, and when a random guy came up to my sister and asked why we were dressed up, she said it was an anime con, and he ended up yelling "I LOVE HENTAI!" O.o

-when we randomly ran across the street 5 times.

I'm sure I had more good times...I just can't think of them now.

My fave moment was... Well, being in the masq was fun, but to be specific, I found it really cool that we couldn't hear the first part of our song 'cause the cheering was so loud. Our ears were ringing for a while, lol! Incase you're wondering, we were #19 "Voulez vous couchez avec moi"(Too long of a title...). Thanks for cheering for us!

Another fun time was when someone asked for a picture of us on Friday... Then I kinda mentioned the word 'yaoi' and all hell broke loose... We ended up doing a bunch of yaoi poses near one of the front doors... I think we attracted too much attention, but I thought it was pretty funny...

The most fun was when I found the "unlisted" panel during the Masquerade. Some people found an open panel room where the mics were left on. They were talking to themselves for 20 minutes until people randomly came in. After that people started asking them random questions which topics included Bill Cosby clones, Captain Planet no longer trying to reduce polution down to zero, Patrick Stewart not leaving the bathroom, and deep questions about life and anime, and which female action star could kick their butt.

Oh, and then there was one of the panel guys who completely punk'd "James Marsters" (Spike from Buffy/Angel) who walked by the panel room. We laughed for a good 5 minutes after that. Completely random and completely entertaining. Unfortunately security asked them to leave, but at least we had 2 hours of great fun.

backstage for the Masquerade. I love meeting new people. The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic. And of course the joker proposing to the Harley, that was absolutely beautiful.

Then the next day when my friend (who dressed as Willy Wonka) won two awards for her costume. It made me so happy!

Did a marriage proposal on stage happened before in AnimeNorth? Felt like de ja vu.
I feel happy for the couple. Most of us stand up and cheers for them. It was a great moment.

My other greatest moments:
-I won an anime DVD from one of the exhibitor's draw!

-angela concert is great. Esp. like the swinging and the whistle part.
Almost like playing Space Channel 5.

-Bumping into all the people I met online by chance. Also, it is great to meet those who were in line with me for sketches/autograph in the last con or the con before.

-Met someone from Bungie. He told me the xbox360 wireless controller has no delay in response. Perfect Dark Zero can handle 32 people to play online at once.

-So it is true, something about Street Fighter from Capcom in October!

-When Kidder said Reeves is Superman and nobody can be a better Superman than him. Everyone claps hands to give Christopher Reeves a salute.

The sheer wall of sound that came pouring out of the audience during my Phantom of the Opera skit completely blew me away.

I had been a little nervous before the skit and I wasn't sure how well things would go over but as soon as the opening bars of the Phantom theme played everyone started to cheer - and then incredibly it got even louder when I walked out on stage.
I thought "it doesn't matter what happens now - this has made it all worth it". And then getting not one but two awards was just the ultimate icing on the cake.

I had focused all my attention for CNA on preparing for the masq. I had a great time in the green room this year - it was lovely getting to see many friends from last year, the calibre of skits was fantastic and everything back stage was so well organized that it was smooth sailing the whole way through. And we had a very fun and enthusiastic audience.

Thank you so much everyone - you made me one very happy Opera Ghost.

Heh.

FRIDAY:

ANBU FRIDAY! My gang and I had pre-practiced poses, so whenever we got stopped for photos (and photos and photos and photos) we'd be able to say "Ok, stop taking pictures, we need to change poses! Do the Yeti!" And immediatley switch our pose (and let our arms/legs move a bit)

The Masquerade and Cosplay Panels. They were a great success, especially the cosplay one, we almost filled the room. XD

HUGHES! He was just the best Maes Hughes ever.

Also, little Sasuke. She was adorable, and I had to suppress the urge to hug her every time I walked by.

Saturday:

Looking like Pirogoeth. The costume isn't flashy or bright, so not a lot of photos were taken, but I was so damn happy when the handful of people recognized me, since I'm really obscure.

The Masq was, flat out, a complete blast. The entries (minus one) were really solid, and everyone was just great to hang around with.

Sunday:

Getting my pass replaced and meeting Brad Swaille randomly. I was in the Liason room and was waiting for my contact to come and confirm me, when I walked over to a couple with a cute baby boy who had a lightsaber. It took me a minute to realize it was Brad. XD I mentioned he was wonderfully nondescript with his baseball cap pulled down low, and he grinned and introduced me to his sister and nephew. Which led to the quote of the week:
"It's my disguise. All I have to do is pull my cap down and I can go anywhere without people recognizing me. This is why I don't wear a cowboy hat and plaid."

And finding out, at the end of the day, that the "Cool Phantom Guy" was actually KusanIvy! XD

LMAO! It's soo true! And with his little scruffy beard it's even harder to tell it's Brad.

And finding out, at the end of the day, that the "Cool Phantom Guy" was actually KusanIvy! XD

Ah you make me feel so loved! I didn't realize anyone had noticed my abscence that much. Apparently I have amazing incognito cosplaying powers - no one knows who I am!

And I found a pic of us on kuko-chan's (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v224/kuko-chan/CN%20Anime%202005/cosplayers01.jpg) page. During one of those "as cosplayers we should know better than to stand still for too long" moments ;)

I was the loud obnoxious guy in the back during the masquerade, I was singing Bohemian Rhapsody and a lot of other things before it started. We chanted such silliness as "MOMS!!"(the mc turned to me and said, you have some strange fixation don't you?, my friend was the one of the 30yr. old comment though he really said thirty years older), "SEPHIROTH!!"and we chanted the MK duo with all our hearts.

Yeah the masq was definitely amazing this year, one of the best I've ever seen. I was blown away by the sheer enthusiasm of the audience, and I too was flattered by the "wall of sound" that occured during my skit, drowning out even our written introduction. Thanks to all those who came out and participated, it was a blast.

Some of that was amusing :), but I'm going to take this opprotunity to remind people that we discourage people yelling things out during the masquerade, (except perhaps during the occasional MC banter when he's requested a reaction.)

It's considered bad form and most people are not funny.

Once one person does it, everyone who thinks they're a comedian want's to do it.

I know some of it is harmless but unfortunately it encourages people who are less self monitoring to think it's okay to yell out inappropriate comments.

We have had trouble in the past with people yelling things like "She's a hoar" and "YOU SUCK", and worse, before, after and even DURING presentations. :untrust:

More importantly it slows down the masquerade and often steps on the preformances of the costumers which can be downright crappy.

Please let me be clear that this is not a personal attack against you. It's a general reminder to the community that it's not a cool or acceptable thing to do.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Cheers!

I think one of the most memorable moments was during the Voice Actors Q&A, Richard Cox jumped out of his chair, grabbed his mic off the stand and stood at the edge of the stage gripping about how he had to listen to Scott piss and moan for 6 months after he didn't get cast as Wolverine in the live action movie. That was hysterical.

Moreover, it was me who asked the question~! LOL

OMG I had way to much fun at the con! the best part of the hole thing was the thrown. who wouldn’t want to be carried around the con on the spiky thrown! *GLEE* no one can have the thrown! its mine *holds on the thrown for dear life* (well that’s what I actually had to do as they took me up the stairs after the skit!)

People at conventions are the best! So much fun and so full of energy! Another one of my favorite moments was when this guy started yelling out "I am not Worthy" to me atop the thrown as I passed by and helped hold the doors open for us. Thank you whoever you are, its nice to know I have loyal followers.

oh yeah... and my least favorite moment was when I got SUPER nervous back stage when the announcer got the intro to our skit wrong!!! DAMN MY BROTHERS BAD WRITING!

Elemental
08-29-2005, 05:54 PM
Your Dark Matron skit/costume was just amazing. Very nicely done- and you were novices, weren't you? I was really impressed.

Just a note: Throne is the spikey thingie of death you sat on and were carted around in looking elegant.
Thrown is the past tense of throw. It's just a little difficult to read if someone doesn't realise what you mean. XD

Depends on how you define funny. I personally found most shouted comments quite hillarious. But that doesn't mean I'm ignorant of other people's feelings. I do agree on your arguements, especially with the catcalling. Negative comments are best kept to yourself and not shouted. But on the other hand, the audience also played a part in making the masquerade enjoyable for me, so I guess its on personal preference.

HUGHES! He was just the best Maes Hughes ever.
Haha, that was me (I hope). I wanted to sign up for the Masquerade but there were no more spaces for anime characters.

I was attacked by a few fangirls. Most fun I've had ever.

Elemental
08-29-2005, 06:30 PM
Well, if you were the Hughes I wouldn't stop pestering with the actual facial hair (and was too busy to marry Pan) than yes, you were quite impressive. XD

For me, the whole con was great.

Lack of sleep + high calorie and sugar foods + Bleach cosplay = fun XD

Although my pink Yachiru wig my friend was supposed to bring me was left in brampton, I had a fun time as Nanao~ ^^ I loved every Bleach cosplayer I met.

Everyone had such cool costumes at the con! I applaud you all for the effort and money you all put into it ^^ Makes it worth every penny for these cons.

Greatest moment is probably when my friends all got awards for the Saturday masq. Frieza from DBZ, Kitana and Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat, and the four moulin rouge dancers (Joey and Kaiba from YuGiOh, and Naruto and Sasuke from Naruto). That was great ^^.

And definitely the proposal was by far the sweetest thing. Frieza wants to be proposed to that way as well XD.

*sigh* Good memories

The Masquerade was definitely a blast, that's for sure. I sure had fun on stage, but dancing with getas and a kimono isn't very easy...and I almost fell when "Megumi" came to keep me from hitting poor "Kenshin" again...but it was all worth it. Hehehe!

The whole week-end was amazing! There were great costumes and the people were great themselves. It was fun...even if we were hot. Well, I shouldn't complain, my borther, who did Shishio, was SOOO hot! I kinda felt guilty, being the one to put on all the bandages. lol

Anyway, it was a blast and the other sketches were great!!!

Oh yea, and i just can't forget sunday, walking around in my PFIL costume, and overhearing the shy hentia fans, punching their buddies in the arm and whispering "HEY! LOOK! ITS A BONDAGE FAIRY" as they point at me.

Once one person does it, everyone who thinks they're a comedian want's to do it.

I know some of it is harmless but unfortunately it encourages people who are less self monitoring to think it's okay to yell out inappropriate comments.

We have had trouble in the past with people yelling things like "She's a hoar" and "YOU SUCK", and worse, before, after and even DURING presentations. :untrust:

More importantly it slows down the masquerade and often steps on the preformances of the costumers which can be downright crappy.

Please let me be clear that this is not a personal attack against you. It's a general reminder to the community that it's not a cool or acceptable thing to do.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Cheers!


No harm no foul. Actually it's why I stopped for a bit. Cause I realized not everybody masters "white humour" the way I do(humour that offends no one). Being an actor or at least performing in public I know the times when to say something and when to shut up, plus I wasn't repetitive like others.

The greatest moment for me has to be the Masq. I was, along with Kohana, one of the people who started the whole RANCH! thing. I never expected the MC to pay attention to it, then he got the whole crowd to say it! So great!
Also the AMV contest...even though its not as important as the AN one still, i dont care...I won Best Dramatic Video!!! I freaked out! It totally made my day.

Greatest moments...

-Proposing to Itachi while in line to sign up for the masq, and having him accept...

-Following my proposal idea and proposing to Scar, accepted!

-Proposing to Willy Wonka back stage of the masq. and all I got was "I'm confused..." and "You're really weird." before my sister grabbed her hand and let me put the ring on. Then Wolfwood preformed the wedding ceremony and we were married! lol!

-The masq in general! ^^ My group, Snaf Emina dancing on stage and winning best group for it!

-Proposing to Sesshoumaru just to make him smile and getting totally shot down! lol

-Stalking Hughes all weekend from a distance because I was too shy to go talk to him.

-Moping about being too shy to talk to Hughes and having my friend Jesse drag me up and ask him "If she asked you to marry her, would your answer be the same as your answer to this question?", then convincing him to marry me. Jesse, being the priest of Uslapaduck, then preforming the wedding ceremony. Yay me! *too happy for it to be healthy*

-The masq. For various reasons. It's also the only time I've ever heard anyone boo at a masq. That was the entire green room for about a minute there.

-Being on camera and chasing around Ruth and Caitlin during the Naruto and Bleach photoshoots. Perfect for Ero-sennin.

-The fact that people actually recognised me and John as Ralf and Clark. -sniff- KoF fans DO live on.

Greatest moments for me were just my moments of stupidity. Definitely staying at kels house and getting all the inside jokes (which is summed up by this image http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=456884 )

Friday's greatest moment was the Gundam Seed shoot, and Saturday was when we got back to kels and died of laughter (thoguh now I know why I almost lost my voice that weekend).

And, as I said, I bangaged Shishio up...my poor brother! We were really really glad that people liked us so much...even though it was kind of crazy how long we'd have to stay immobile when we were all together. lol.

It's true that we don't see many Kenshin cosplay anymore. Too bad, it's a really good show. Well, we'll be back next year. We're thinking about doing Inuyasha...but we may also do Naruto or Bleach...we don't really know. Yeah, it's early, but we've got a lots of costumes to make. eheh.

Oh, and then there was one of the panel guys who completely punk'd "James Marsters" (Spike from Buffy/Angel) who walked by the panel room. We laughed for a good 5 minutes after that. Completely random and completely entertaining. Unfortunately security asked them to leave, but at least we had 2 hours of great fun.


Some guy punk'd James Marsters? What did he do specifically? What was James' reaction? What was the day and time? This sounds really interesting!

I had so much fun at the con this year that it's hard to pick a greatest moment. There were so many cool things: the Angela concert, the masquerade, getting to meet so many people from the forums here as well as people from AN, being in Otaking's extra masq (and winning an award!!!!), getting a lot of nice compliments, I could go on and on.....
But, I'm going to have to choose something kinda stoopid as my favourite memory: I'd chatted with Sean Ward in the Alley a few times over the weekend, and so went to say goodbye on Sunday when I was going home. So he came around the table to "say goodbye properly". I thought I was getting a hug, and I did, except that then he started dancing with me!!!! While it was a lot of fun, doing an impromptu waltzy-type dance with no music in the middle of the path in the artist's alley is a disaster waiting to happen, and I know I hit quite a few people with my bag of manga while twirling around! :lost: If I hit any of you, please accept my sincerest apologies!!!

This year's CNA was good, beats last year since I actually had money:thumbsup: Even though I wasn't cosplaying, I still had plenty of fun.

Some of my favorite moments were:
- Going through dealer's room. As much as I like AN for their events, I love CN for their deals and junk. Zeta Gundam poster for the win!
- Seeing friends and familar faces.
- Meeting new people, particularly this random Rikkaidai cosplayer from Prince of Tennis (at least I think it was Rikkaidai) who kept calling me Inui, she was cool :cool:
- Walking around with my friend who kept doing his "Dalism Dance" for people and even had random signs pinned onto him with his phone number :bigtu:
- The masquerade was fun to a certain extent, as hilarious as it was. Its still too embarassing to even think about :razz:
- Watching Samurai Gun!
- And meeting Sarge and Tucker from Red Vs Blue. DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS DEVELOPERS...!

If anyone has my friend's 'Dalism Dance' on film (since I'm very sure there were quite a few people filming and laughing) please send a copy to me. Would be much appreciated :thumbsup:

Saturday:

Looking like Pirogoeth. The costume isn't flashy or bright, so not a lot of photos were taken, but I was so damn happy when the handful of people recognized me, since I'm really obscure.

The Masq was, flat out, a complete blast. The entries (minus one) were really solid, and everyone was just great to hang around with.



You were the Pirogorth! Yay! I met you that weekend! You were happy that I knew who you were and I was happy you were Pirogoeth! ('cept I think I called you Piroko... o_O).

Didn't really have a particular greatest moment that stood out from the rest of the weekend, but I think hanging around the greenroom for the masq was at least one of the best moments for me.

I got to watch the masquerade without having to keep quite since everyone was pretty chatty in there anyway. Plus, being in the greenroom gave me the chance to poke at the costumers with the costumes I liked most. ^^;;

Konrad, you do realize that your antics were the reason everyone was disgusted enough to boo, loudly, in response to your complete disrespect of us as a masquerade and as cosplayers?

And if that was one of your highlights, then I'm even more offended. Because that says to me you weren't only being ignorant, but you were intentionally being rude and inconsiderate.

http://pics.livejournal.com/vanillapocky/pic/000fd3ey [beware, hi-res]

Also... greatest moment? Let me back this up first: I was there with a friend on Press Pass stuff, for our radio show... so after the Q&A Panel with Angela, we asked their agent or whatever, if we could get them to do a station ID [basically, say who they were, and say 'You're listening to --' kind of thing.] and he agreed, and had the two of us follow them IN TO the guest's green room.

On a side note, James Marsters was in there playing guitar and singing. O_O;

Back to Angela. They sat and drank water for a sec, then pulled us over to their table. We told them our show is called 'Hot Like Wasabi', and they repeated it a few times. atsuko 'screwed up' our name, [Hot Like Wasabi] so she stopped, and started repeating to herself 'hot rike! hot rike!' about 20 times, then we tried again. It went like this:

Both: "We arrrre Angera!"
atsuko: "I am atsuko!'
KATSU: "I'm KATSU!'
Both: "You arrre ristening to Hot Rike Wasabi!"
atsuko: "Wasabi?"
KATSU: "Wasaaaabi~ HOT RIKE WASAAAABI!"

XD It was great. We all laughed, and I gave them a very sincere ’ありがとうごあいます!’ To which they replied ’だいじょうぶ! Sankyuu very much!' Hehe. 'Twas great fun.

I live in Sudbury, and currently we can only broadcast over the airwaves. HOWEVER, I am personally working on setting up a webcast for the radio station, which would be very cool.

Another however: As soon as I can transcribe the tape recording to a CD in the studio, I'm going to post a copy of it online, because so many people want to hear. I'm also setting up a 'Night Version' of Hot Like Wasabi, that you can get to by connecting Winamp to http://hlwradio.no-ip.com:8000 after midnight EST until... whenever I get up in the mornings. XD May not run every night, and it's straight music for now, cause I can't host a radio show in my sleep. :P

IF, by chance, you live in Sudbury, we're on CKLU 96.7FM [and 106.7 Cable FM], on Thursdays from 4 to 6 pm. :D

I actually have the whole 'MOESU~!' dialogue as an mp3, the only problem is... I have nowhere to upload it. So if anyone wants to host it, let me know, and I'll send it over.

ALSO~ If you can't get the link to open, just go to SHOUTcast.com, and search for 'Hot Like Wasabi', and you should be able to connect there. :D

True enough. :) Ultimately laughs were had and no harm done. :)

I still had to remind everyone of audience etiquette however, so we do not have to revert back to the dark days of having to station bouncers in the aisles to deal with people with no ability to control themselves. :) Many people here will recall those days with a shutter, and you strike me as reasonable so I'm sure you can understand my reason for needing to mention it.

Thanks. I put about 2 months into sewing that thing, and a week into building the sword...

Sadly, on Sunday, I was waiting in dealer's room behind the washrooms near the center, with the stairs going down... and the sword fell between the glass and down the stairs, right on the tip of the sword. I guess it was a good way to test the sword's integrity, heh. Thankfully only the paint on the tip chipped off, no other damage. It was stronger than I thought. :thumbsup:

No see, you ARE annoying and offensive. Trying to butt in our picture after the Masq? Not cool, okay? There's a number of reasons people dislike you. One reason? You're obnoxious and impose upon people. Not cool. Learn your boundaries and drop the whole "I'm so cool" act.

That said... As to why there was booing: Essentially the entry was among one of the weakest I've ever seen, even from novices. Atop that, just a general dislike for a certain individual added to the chorus.

Hey guys, it's cool to discuss about the goods/bads of the masquerade, but let's not turn it into a personal attack.

The masquerade was heavily capped this year, so it goes without saying that everyone should do a self-evaluation and ask themselves if their costumes/planned-performance need to see the stage. If not, don't enter, save the spot for someone else. It's as simple as that. It's not really a matter of "first come, first serve"; more like courtesy, no? It's also a way in which you show others in the community your support.

"Art" is defined differently by each and every person, so there's no point in arguing about it.

I want everyone to know that even though I may be somewhat defensive about the merits of my work, I actually really like all of you out there, and don't really want to fight with anyone at all. I respect that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and I wouldn't want anyone to be angry with me personally over my work or to think that I would write a skit just to upset others, as that really is not reflective of me at all.

I love this community, and everyone in it! I wish we could all just get along, all the time.

Feel free to paint me as whatever you want though, as I simply can't be bothered with finger-pointing or bold acquisitions.Unfortunately, even though you may have not realized it, your entry was breaking masquerade rules.

After this year's CN, the rules have been reevaluated and additions have been made to prevent entries such as the one you entered from being entered in the masquerade again.

You probably don't like hearing this, but your entry was not appropriate for masquerades as they are run at most conventions in Southern Ontario.

Perhaps you should try the skit contest (where the focus is your skit and not so much the outfits worn) next time instead of pulling a bunch of guys in street clothing on stage with you since (unlike many of the American cons which have masquerades for skit judging and hall contests for worksmanship) entries in the masquerades around here do require the main performers to be in costume and it was generally agreed upon that store bought clothing do not count as costumes unless they take after specific costumes from a genre related to the convention you're attending.

Even if you and your group members claim that you are indeed "cosplaying" as background dancers from an R&B music video, that is not something that should be acceptted at a sci-fi/comic/anime/horror/gaming expo and the rules for the masquerade have been revises to reflect this.

Another thing! My co-host from the radio show when to the Scott McNeil et al VA Panel, wearing a lime green fedora. Afterwards, she went to talk with Scott, and he was all: "I really like your hat. I mean, REALLY like it."

...And then he took the hat off her head, took off his cowboy hat, and plopped it on her head, and then put on the lime green fedora, and said: "NOBODY ever gets to wear my hat. But I like this one, so you get a chance."

Needless to say, she was very happy. :D [I think we have that on tape too, hee.]

"Great art is always divisive. It cuts with a keen edge into two camps, those that do and those that don't."

The masquerade is a costume contest. No matter how great your art, the masquerade isn't the place for your art unless it's costume-related. You could be the greatest sax player on the planet or the best stand-up comic in the country, but that wouldn't make it appropriate for you to perform your art in the masquerade. Since what you were wearing were not costumes, your quote is irrelevant.

Hey Konrad, were you the guy who sang the (english) Poke'mon Theme song during the Jpop-Singing Contest on AN2005?

---------------------------------------------------------

So you were leading that group that did the dance thing? Rules or not, your skit was still awesome and I'm sure even though you got a few frowns from your peers for entering with that, you at least gave a helluva lot more people laughs and a memorable experience.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Seriously guys, I understand masquerade space is limited and a lot of people want to show off their hard work for the con-goers, but getting all flustered over a trivial thing such as Konrad and his crew entering the Masquerade is just plain (forgive the brutal honesty) stupid. If their costumes were against the rules, then they shouldn't have been allowed to participate in the first place. But they did, and people enjoyed their skit. That's all that matters.

Well personally, you remind me too much of a good friend of mine, so I can't get angry about your antics. Plus, I remember meeting you this year at AN. You were following around the guys who were "Harold and Kumar go to Anime North." And I caught the beginning of your performance of Pokemon in the J-Idol contest (I think it was right after my shakey performance :P). So, yea, you seem like a funny guy.

However, the other do draw a good point. Those entering a capped masquerade should re-evaluate their performance. If they're only going up to entertain and have no real interest in winning anything, perhaps they should step aside and let others in. But if their intention was to show off a well-made costume and try and win something, then they're in the right place. :)

I have sort of a general, unrelated question now concerning voice actors. Please don't flame me or get angry or defensive because of this. Why would you want to meet a voice actor you've already met and got an autograph for? After meeting Scott McNeil once, I felt that was enough. To be honest, I'm kinda sick of him. :S I keep hoping for someone different, but he shows up year after year. I know he loves the attention, but still.

I'm sure his performance was riviting, but if you don't have a costume, why enter the masq? It's not amatuer night at the local comedy club- it's called a MASQUERADE for a reason.

And from what I've heard, 90% of ppl did NOT enjoy their 'skit'

When there are only 20 spots to fill per genre, it's not fair that someone who worked 100+ hours got turned away from a COSTUME CONTEST, because someone else entered to fool around in street clothes.

But perhaps the rules need to be more tight- requiring craftsmanship judging would be a good thing... but it would be nice to be able to rely your fellow fans to not enter the masq, if they don't even have a costume. It's just common courtesy.

I have sort of a general, unrelated question now concerning voice actors. Please don't flame me or get angry or defensive because of this. Why would you want to meet a voice actor you've already met and got an autograph for? After meeting Scott McNeil once, I felt that was enough. To be honest, I'm kinda sick of him. :S I keep hoping for someone different, but he shows up year after year. I know he loves the attention, but still.>_> <_< >_> *clings* I love you. O.O

I've been wondering the same. >_<

It was cool to meet some of the VA's the first time around (mostly cause it was during my Gundam Wing fangirl phase and most the VAs I met are GW ones), but after that, I just didn't understand the attraction to them. They're just people. If people liked hanging out with them like their own friends, I don't quite understand the need to mention it apart from hanging with your own friends unless I'm the only one who doesn't get to see some of my friends outside of cons often. XD

I'm sure his performance was riviting, but if you don't have a costume, why enter the masq? It's not amatuer night at the local comedy club- it's called a MASQUERADE for a reason.

And from what I've heard, 90% of ppl did NOT enjoy their 'skit'

When there are only 20 spots to fill per genre, it's not fair that someone who worked 100+ hours got turned away from a COSTUME CONTEST, because someone else entered to fool around in street clothes.

But perhaps the rules need to be more tight- requiring craftsmanship judging would be a good thing... but it would be nice to be able to rely your fellow fans to not enter the masq, if they don't even have a costume. It's just common courtesy.

I think courtsey lost to 'art' in this case.

As frustrated and disgusted as I am by his antics, one good thing *has* come of it- It won't be happening again. Since the people who run the masquerades throughout Toronto are a pretty tight-knit group, the fiasco that was Konrad's live art preformance means the rules have been revised, and something like this will not be allowed to repeat. While I know Konrad is 'satisfied' with the preformance and can see no way of improving (or repeating) it, it means follow up acts in a similar vein will not be allowed to pass.

We may call it the "Bongard Rule."

It's annoying, but we gained something, I suppose. Gotta find the silver lining at this point, as those involved will never realize just how damaging their antics were for the community they love.

The winners didn't get a masq rule named after them, nuff' said.

Oh thank goodness I'm not the only one who thinks like that. ^^ Yeah, that's one thing I'll never get about my friends. They go crazy for Scotty like he was some big-time celebrity. They meet him year after year, I guess hoping that he'll eventually commit them to memory and recognize them when he meets them again and again.

The hypocritical thing I see about that is how much they'll complain about the English version of so-and-so show, then go ga-ga when they hear the ENGLISH voice actors are coming to a local con. When the Japanese voice actor for Heero came to AN, they were like "Meh, whatever. Kirby's here! Let's go maul Scotty!"

And how many times does one really need the autograph of the same guy? Unless they're planning to steal his identity. :P

Well personally, you remind me too much of a good friend of mine, so I can't get angry about your antics. Plus, I remember meeting you this year at AN. You were following around the guys who were "Harold and Kumar go to Anime North." And I caught the beginning of your performance of Pokemon in the J-Idol contest (I think it was right after my shakey performance :P). So, yea, you seem like a funny guy.

However, the other do draw a good point. Those entering a capped masquerade should re-evaluate their performance. If they're only going up to entertain and have no real interest in winning anything, perhaps they should step aside and let others in. But if their intention was to show off a well-made costume and try and win something, then they're in the right place. :)

I agree wih you as well. I don't really see the point, but some people are *makes cirles with pointer finger arround the side of her head* (haha, I'm joking, don't flame me). I think it's a sub-culture of the fandom we called anime: Try to get as many VA's names written over countless stuff. I don't personally get it but *shurg* to each his own *says this while shaking her head*

P.S I serioulsy didn't even notice the booing at Konrad and his gang. Boku Wa Baka desu!! But correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Konrad in a costume? Squall from FF8?

P.S.S The "Harold and Kumar go to Anime North." guys (if any one cares) are my friends *huggies them* Erick and The Chi-man!

my fave moment was when we were waiting to go into the room for the I&I with elijah, there was this girl who was completely obsessed with him, she kept getting herself ready to meet him, but she was completely funny about it. she kept joking that she was going to take him home and stuff.
also, I hugged elijah after the I&I and when i went back to my seat, which was next to this girl, she said "what does he smell like? does he smell good?" i was like I dunno, he doesn't smell bad. then we laughed.

Was Conrad the Squall at CNAnime? I met him a few times, even waited behind him in line for the Masquerade before they, y'know, messed around with it and made it all wonky. He was trying to gather up a bunch of random people to enter a skit in with him at the last minute, wasn't he?

So stop making it sound like a horrible experience.There wasn't anything wrong with the masquerade. No one's complaining about the masquerade (unless they didn't get in, but those people can't really complain about anything except not getting in since they didn't get to see the entries). People are complaining about specific entries. There were 2 other entries worthy of complaint, but 1 was a girl who eventually realized that she completely misunderstood the purpose of the masquerade and has promised to change for the better next time, and the other person..I'm pretty sure was mentally disabled to some degree with how she interacted with us in the polaroid pit, so yeah....

my favorite times were meeting so many other Fruits Basket cosplayers, I also had alot of fun bumping into my new found friend the cow, and her friends. I thought it was funny the amount of huggage and glompage my friends and I recieved crosplaying such 'loveable' characters... however loveaboe an extremly flamboyant snake, a boy who turns into a cat, or a monster, and a guy who can destroy a classroom if his temper takes controle can be... lol. I thought the masqurade was awsome, and I loved how the Harly and Joker skit, where Joker proposed, got a standing ovation. That was amazing.

I over all had alot of fun, and found the picture whore within. lol. I though so many costumes were amazing, next time I'm bringing a camera even if it's disposable.

I just wanted to chip in that I too have never met a English VA at CN or A.North. I just don't see the point of it myself. Now the Japanese VA's are a different story. Not sure why, but once again I have never met or got an autograph from them either. Lines bore me.

But concerts on the other hand.....I'm there. Angela concert. Best time at CN 2005.

--------------------------------------------------------

To keep on topic, the Masquerade was hands-down the Weekend's Greatest Moment (in my truly honest opinion). So stop making it sound like a horrible experience.

The issue isn't the masquerade. It's that entry. I've talked to people who were in the audience. Most of the acts were quite enjoyable, and it was one of the best run--if not THE best run masquerade I've seen. Major props to Dawn and the volunteers/organisers for that; I was really really wrong about my pre-con opinion on the changes.

That said, there's several major issues that go beyond just the entry itself. One is that Konrad's privately disrespected both the majority of performers and the judges at CNX. I posted this before, but removed the quote because I didn't want to be as inflammatory. It's bad form. Anyone who wants to see what he wrote; feel free to PM me. That said, I'm firmly convinced that no matter what he says publicly, his private assertion is that he's better than most of us, and has no regard for the judges at all.

Secondly, his opinion that his skits are good, when the reception to them by fellow performers, by many people in the audience, and by the judges has been terrible, shows that he's belligerently arrogant. He tends to use nice words in the public forum, but there's always the air of self-righteous superiority; undeservedly so. I for one, am sick of it.

He claims that his skit was one of the most well-received at CNX. Where's the proof? A supposed wall of sound that greeted him? Everyone got that. It's called common courtesy. There was nothing special about his 'wall of sound'. No one in his entry besides him was wearing a recognisable costume, and he's worn Squall far too many times for it to be 'exciting'. If you were say, mBrosia (just as an example of a popular act), or if you had a very well done Naruto or Bleach group, then I can see the audience reception being exceptionally loud. But these are a handful of guys, only one of which had a discernible costume (and an overused, underworked one at that), with audio that was a horrible mess (what the heck was being said? I couldn't tell, that's for sure.), and a performance which resembled choreography save for the utterly lack of coordination. Two hours rehearsal? It shows. A skit with choreography takes at least a good month or two/three/four/five with rehearsal for several hours each weekend. We learned that a couple of years ago with BRP vs IDJIT: The Showdown. Amanda can back me up on that one.

There's no humility in him. There's no courtesy of "oh yes, thank you for your criticism, I'll do better next time". He's firmly convinced that there's nothing to work on as long as it gets a cheer. But a cheer doesn't mean the skit's well done. That it's quality. People laugh and have a good time with Jon Stewart for being as witty and on the ball as he is, but they also laugh at Kevin Spencer for being as poor and crass as it is.

What really gets me is that a large number of the walk-ons were of a higher quality, and in technical terms take a lot less rehearsal and planning because you're usually only dealing with yourself or one other person. I loved the Dejiko especially; she was great. Lots of the walk-ons were really good this year. Konrad's skit was not. End of story.

He claims that his skit was one of the most well-received at CNX. Where's the proof?He actually told me on MSN that he got louder applause for his skit than all the rest. He heard it himself...from the stage.

I don't know if he just didn't want to believe me when I tried to explain that sound travelling directly towards you will always sound louder than sound travelling thru several layers of curtains and around a corner (which is the closest you'd get while waiting to go on stage).

I was watching from the greenroom where the video feed and audio was consistant thru the masq and there was NOT greater applause for his skit.

I loved the Dejiko especially; she was great.She deserves extra props (which I did give her backstage) since she not only pulled off an awesome walk on with a very well made costume, but she did it the day after throwing out her back.

For being in constant severe pain, her entry was magnificent and definitely worthy of admiration for her dedication to her craft. =D

One is that Konrad's privately disrespected both the majority of performers and the judges at CNX.

I'm quite blown away by the boldness of your acquisitions, as I simply haven't said or done anything to show disrespect toward any of the judges of performers at CNAnime. I have suggested that my skit recieved a positive reception, which I believe is a mute point simply because people's opinions of my skits reception have almost directly correlated with their opinion of the skit itself.

I thought that the majority of entries in this year's skit competition were well-done, and I believe the same of my own. I have always been critical of the judging at masquerades and skit competitions, and this has nothing to do with me not winning an award; of course I didn't expect to. I have no ill wishes for any of the judges nor do I know any of them personally, I am merely stating an opinionated observation, respectfully.

I posted this before, but removed the quote because I didn't want to be as inflammatory. It's bad form. Anyone who wants to see what he wrote; feel free to PM me. That said, I'm firmly convinced that no matter what he says publicly, his private assertion is that he's better than most of us, and has no regard for the judges at all.

State whatever quotes from my private messages you want, and I'll state whatever I want from yours, I don't need to hide behind them. By suggesting that my quotes are somehow inappropriate to post you are making me look far worse than if you simply put them up, as put in an objective context it is obvious I have not been overly offensive toward anyone. If I sounded angry toward you it was because I had a right to be; you telling one my friends I tryed to rape a girl in a public washroom is not only a barefaced lie, it is also slanderous and disgusting.

Secondly, his opinion that his skits are good, when the reception to them by fellow performers, by many people in the audience, and by the judges has been terrible, shows that he's belligerently arrogant. He tends to use nice words in the public forum, but there's always the air of self-righteous superiority; undeservedly so. I for one, am sick of it.

I thank you for your opinion. I could argue this also, but it too is a mute point. I believe my skit succeeded on my own terms, an assertion which is wholly subjective and hardly worth arguing about. I respect that many of the judges and my fellow cosplayers disliked the skit; I simply didn't deserve an award. As I pointed out earlier, people's opinions of my skit's reception have corresponded more or less entirely with their opinion of my skit. I think it's fair to say on that basis that we're not all being completely objective (this includes myself).

He claims that his skit was one of the most well-received at CNX. Where's the proof? A supposed wall of sound that greeted him? Everyone got that. It's called common courtesy. There was nothing special about his 'wall of sound'.

Where's the proof of that? Again, your stating your opinion of something wholly subjective as a fact, when there is nothing factual about your argument at all. I may be wrong, but you're certainly not right.

No one in his entry besides him was wearing a recognisable costume, and he's worn Squall far too many times for it to be 'exciting'. If you were say, mBrosia (just as an example of a popular act), or if you had a very well done Naruto or Bleach group, then I can see the audience reception being exceptionally loud.

Just because you can't 'see' it doesn't mean it didn't happen. I can't dispute that my Squall costume has grown unexciting, in fact, it was never exciting in the first place. But considering I dismantled a lot of it before even entering onstage, it obviously wasn't meant to be the focus of the skit, and the audience did not treat it as such.

As to your comments about the potential merits of a well-done Naruto or Bleach group, perhaps the majority of the audience had more of an appetite for absurdity than you've developed yourself. Perhaps not, I can't prove it, and I won't pretend I can either.

with audio that was a horrible mess (what the heck was being said? I couldn't tell, that's for sure.), and a performance which resembled choreography save for the utterly lack of coordination. Two hours rehearsal? It shows. A skit with choreography takes at least a good month or two/three/four/five with rehearsal for several hours each weekend.

I arranged the song by myself using an audio device, and recorded it using multiple tracks of overdubbed instrumentation. A friend of mine recorded a vocal track and deliberately improvised many of the words in an attempt to create the same hazy atmosphere exuded by the inaudible lyrics on The Rolling Stones' largely improvised masterpiece, Exile on Main St.

The coreography was written sloppily to correspond with the spontaneous feel of the performance, to create a fun-house, off-the-cuff aesthetic. In the case of this performance, I feel that my approach better mirrored the art than it would've if I had meticulously practiced for months on end.

He's firmly convinced that there's nothing to work on as long as it gets a cheer. But a cheer doesn't mean the skit's well done.

I agree, it doesn't.

People laugh and have a good time with Jon Stewart for being as witty and on the ball as he is, but they also laugh at Kevin Spencer for being as poor and crass as it is.

Oh well, you must be right Mark, I suppose everyone in the audience was just laughing at how much of an idiot I am and how bad my skit is. Right.

Lots of the walk-ons were really good this year. Konrad's skit was not. End of story.

I thank you for your opinion, and I will do better next time - if only because that's the recurring pattern.

Mark, I sent you a private message earlier because I didn't want to continue debating this in an off-topic thread and because I didn't want to have to embarass you by bringing up the lies you've made up about me in a public forum. If anyone has anything further to say about my skit (positive or negative comments), you should PM me and I will gladly discuss it with you.

Right Konrad, play innocent. Hold on.

The skit was enjoyed by who I wrote it for: the audience. Pardon me for not losing sleep over what the CN judges or green room thought of my work; most of them could never have written a skit equally popular with the audience anyway.

Pasted word for word. I'm sorry, but if that's not disrespect, maybe I need to re-learn my interpretation of the English language.

Now allow me to break down your post, properly.

1. Choreography being written sloppily? Don't fucking hide. It was poorly done and everyone knows it. Intentionally bad choreography is still bad. And it wasn't comedic, it was sorry and pathetic. Don't even try to tell me you wrote it to be that way, because you said yourself that you only practised for two hours. That choreography wasn't sloppy on purpose; it was just plain bad.

2. As to your comments on appetites for absurdity: There was nothing absurd about what you did. Michael's "I'm a Spiritual Man" skit was absurd, and funny -- in fact, downright hilarious. Yours was not. It was just piss-poor low-quality.

3. I believe my skit succeeded on my own terms, an assertion which is wholly subjective and hardly worth arguing about. - No, see, this is a masquerade. The skit is NOT on your own terms. It's on the terms of the judges. That's why it's an exhibition and not a private art gallery. This is not a Dada-ist fair. Get that through your head.

4. Subjectivity is not an issue when you put it forth that the 'wall of sound' you received was 'greater than most other acts'. You've put that forward frequently, as though somehow you were better liked. You weren't. You were booed, by just about every single one of your fellow performers in the green room. The judges have even made a rule forbidding you to perform in such a manner again because it was so disgustingly inappropriate. GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEAD.

You're arrogant, you're disgustingly ignorant to the appraisal of others if it doesn't suit your ego, and you've managed to piss off just about everyone who performed at CNX as well as the judges for both cosplay idol at AN, and the masq at CNX (which as I understand it, are the same judges at AN). That's not something to be proud of. It's a big fat warning light telling you to look in the mirror and reassess where you stand. It's called thin ice, VERY thin ice.

ok, im not one to join in on bashing and stuff so im just gona add my two cents in a nice calm fashion

first off. i was a den mother at CNA, and while taking care of my den a girl from den 8 came to me complaining that guys were bothering her and wouldn’t give her her sisters gloves back. so i went to check it out, and konrad it was your 'friends' they were annoying and harassing the girl cause she was asking for her gloves back and didn’t appreciate how they were acting. i was a bit taken back as to how rude they were to her, yes their actions have nothing to do with you but i thought i would tell you that they left a bad impression on people backstage which in turn effects you because you associated with them.

secondly i was backstage watching all the skits go on, and like everyone else said i feel you didn’t belong on there. there was no 'real' costumes. only people in street clothes dancing on stage. it would have been good if maybe you had spent more time rehearsing and perhaps made something that would be classified as a costume. because it is a COSTUME COMPETETION. not a prance on stage with street clothes on.

well there’s my addition to this whole escapade >_>

09-04-2005, 09:24 PM
I can't say much as to the skit, because I honestly did not see the whole thing.
What I did see of it, I actually didn't believe was a skit. I walked into the green room to hear everyone begin to boo, and when I tried to make out what was going on the screen, I was unable to because the picture was kinda fuzzy (No ones fault really) and the music I heard coming from the speakers did not sound like any language I have ever heard before. It was hardly recognizible as a real sound.

On the point of how you don't listen too well, Konrad, I have personally told you many times to stay the hell away from me because I don't like you, and to keep your hands off my friend. It wasn't until I threatened your life with a large pointy object that you did stop trying to be touchy feely with her, and even that didn't make you fully go away. My friend is actually very scared of you and how "friendly" you are with women.

I didn't really want to get into this, because I fear this might make Kondar come near me to bring up the topic, which I really don't want to happen... (Please... oh my god... don't come near me Konrad.. I'll be forced to do something awful... or pay someone bigger to do it for me...) so I'm going to leave it at that really. I can't make this sound any less like a personal complaint towards him and more like a real issue... Sorry.

Mark, I don't want to to fight with you any longer as it is distracting from the purpose of this thread, but I am going to PM you, and I do expect you to answer for the slanderous and uncalled for rumours you've been attempting to circulate about me (which you've dodged repeatedly).

In my personal experience with meeting voice actors I tend to go toward the English actor b/c I recognize their work. Majority of the times at cons there are japanese VA's that have done animes that I'm not interested in at all or havent really heard of....there are tons of Japanese VA's I'd love to meet but I highly doubt they'll be coming to a con near me...so English VA's it is...for now....but I await for the day for Seki Tomokazu, Yui Horie, and, Junko Takeuchi to suddenly drop by :)

The bashing should probably stop here.. <.<.. It won't get anywhere and this is TOTALLY off topic, unless someone can prove to me otherwise how Konrad's "disappointing" performance in the masquerade is related to the CNAX's Greatest Moments.. <.<.. Although I've only met Konrad once, I, like the rest of you, have my own "beef". So let's all keep our criticism about others to ourselves rather than to show everyone our dark sides? (as you may call it) ^^;; because it really is disgusting in its own way, like how this thread is going.

The GW ones were exciting to meet cause I actually watched Gundam Wing as it aired on YTV at the same time I was working my way through the Gundam Wing fansubs I had stacked up in the basement (yay for old school VHS fansubs).

I was retardedly excited to meet Midorikawa Hikaru when he was a guest at AN 2 years ago. More excited than I ever was to meet any English VA, but I'm one of the ones who used to watch anime at a retarded rate, so most the stuff that's on TV now, I've either seen 2 years (or more) ago subbed or I don't have interest in watching the series at all. My lack of TV access when I'm at school probably also factors into the "not knowing/caring much for English VAs" as well.

I was disappointed in the lack of Japanese guests this year. Angela was there, but I had already meet them and heard them perform last year at Otakon (although it was all by accident). I was really excited about James Marsters being at CN this year. If I actually got a chance to meet him, it probably would have ended up as my best moment, but the fees were just too much for me. The fact that some of my friends got to randomly run into him made me happy though, even though I never go to see him. XD

Hi =)

I think it's about time this thread got back on topic. It's named "Weekend Greatest Moments", not "Bad Entries in the Masquerade".
If there are still issues surrounding that one entry, please take it to MSN or PM, okay? If not, then I'll close this thread and make a new one for this topic. ^_^ Merci!

I have a few best moments.. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

my ultimate best moment was probably being backstage and on the canadian idol stage. since i am crazy crazy for canadian idol. I wish they didn't have to cover up the logo! :p
also.. this was my first masquerade and I had a really great time. I can't wait til next years now!

#2. Gathering up the courage to meet one of my biggest childhood(/adolescent/adult) fears, candyman. man that is one scary dude!

and a post-CN best moment.. - Going to canadian idol last wednesday and seeing our skit's castle still there which we forgot to pick up. Well, I didn't take the castle back but I took off the lanterns. *=*

I've finally decided on my favourite moment of the weekend. To be honest, my whole weekend was a blast (first time in a very long time) and I think it was partial due to being there with just my boyfriend, no tired parents, no nagging siblings, no excess baggage. I was also happy that my boyfriend was sharing an interest of mine and he had a lot of fun! So my favourite moment was waiting in line to meet Jhonen Vasquez. We were chatting with the people in line with us and we saw the giant Grr walk by (to which I shouted "Sing the Doom song!"). Jhonen himself was a friendly guy and my b/f was estatic when he met him.

My best moment of the weekend was probably being interviewed by CityTV. The person interviewing me was obviously freaked out by all the cosplayers. She's like, "And what do all of you *get* out of this????". That was so funny that I started laughing. Sadly, she wouldn't interview my friend (Black mage Paine, I was the Rikku) at the same time since she said she could only fit one head into the shot, lol. Yep, that was a big hat.

heh, i saw that interview. as for what you "get" out of it, that's so funny. I wouldn't have even been able to continue the interview, I would have been rofl.

One more 'greatest moment'! ^^;

We wandered the dealer's room for a bit, and went to the Anime Extreme booth. A girl named Ai from Tofu Records was there, running [duh] the Tofu Records booth. So we told her about our radio station and show, and she asked us to come to the panel. Which, of course we did. The panel had a bunch of cool new PVs and such, with some awesome songs. So afterwards, we went and spoke to her again, and she ASKED US OUT TO TALK OVER LUNCH! Sadly it was raining, and we were all in costume, so we just stayed in the Convention Centre and got a quick interview. It was still cool. I wish we could've actually gone out though...
