OOOOOOooOoooo!! Me going! ^^ But, me never seen and heard of Battle Royale, so sorry, I can't join your 'group'... T-T Sorry, but me cosplaying as Blindfolded Unknown Riku from Kingdom Hearts Deep Dive! ^^ So, I guess that I'll see you there!... If I don't get into big trouble.... -_-

Don't know if I can go yet... have to wait until my PM gives me my production schedule... if I'm not working on a show that weekend then maybe they'll let me go. ^_^

It fits in well between classes and concerts so I may actually make it out to this little con. *pets TAC*

we'll see. I need to make a March weather suited costume. There's no way in hell I'd wear Paine in freezing March weather....

Mage
01-11-2004, 11:55 PM
Hmm, just a quick note about the weather situation...

I'm assuming the March TAC is also going to be held in the convention centre, correct? If that's the case, weather will probably not be a problem. If you're taking transit, there's the Skywalk between Union Station and the MTCC, so it's completely indoors. I planned for November weather when I went to the TAC then and, surprise surprise, spent most of the time BOILING because even though my Agrias costume would've been perfect for outside weather....the MTCC has perfectly functional heating. x_X; So yeah, I just want to make sure no one else has to deal with that, if at all possible. ^_^

I don't know if I'll go to this one. I can't remember the dates for this or for Ad Astra. I'd much rather go to Ad Astra, so we'll see. If I have too many midterms to worry about, I might not go to either.

I've been kicking myself for not attending the last NovHobbCon... Just checked, its the weekend after WrestleMania XX :whew: I'll probably be going mostly to shop (stuff I won't be able to get @ AN), see you there... hopefully.

Ad Astra is the first weekend of April (2nd until the 4th)
MAC-TAC is March 20th and 21st. So there is one full weekend between both cons. And Mage, if money is tight and you still want to come to AdAstra you can always volunteer to earn free crash space like Dawn and I are doing. ^_^
Hope to see you there!

I'm going and I'd love to go as a Battle Royale Character.....

gahh i forget the name of the girl i wanted to be, the one who wore the yellow jogging suit and had the switch blade, i think it'd be cool cuz she stands out so much.

yeah..

*grin* have a couple of other costume ideas as well, will see

I would only go to the TAC if there were a lot of people I want to hang out with also going...since there's obviously no point in going just for the con. -.-;; But most of those people are probably going to Ad Astra anyways....so probly not.

I'm hoping to have my Sera Myu Venus costume done by then, so it would be a nice way to have its debut and get lots of pics done.

Is there a website with good information, with times and everything? Cause I really know nothing about it.

What's ad-astra?

Mekou
01-12-2004, 02:15 PM
Most likely I'm gonna drag people out for dinner again. X3 I've been in the mood for sushi and other such food so I'm going to check for restaurants in the area and RESERVE seat for anyone wanting to go. ^_^ Most likely I'll be doing this the first night of the consince most people will only go for the first day anyway. ^^;


So if you're interested in joining just pm me and I'll add you to the seating reservation count. hehe. ^_~ The week before Cornercon2 is the deadline to let me know. XD

I'm not going to MAC-TAC. *chuckles*

Mage , Kia is right, if you want to volunteer a bit and share a girls volunteer room with us you're more than welcome to. That way you get to crash with people you know, and it's much easier on the finances as well. :bigtu:
Why pay the hotel all that money you could be spending on fabric and whatnot? *grins micheviously*

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Cheers!

=O Could someone put up a link for Ad Astra possibly ^_^; ?? I've heard a bit of it, but I'd love to know more ^_^!!

For MAC-TAC I'm not sure what I'll be doing. I need to prioritize some costumes :sulk: and get somethings strianght. I do know that one costume I want to do more than anything and everything has been Gunner Paine. At least that hasn't changed :thumbsup: . I might just have Paine for TAC then.

*O* Dinner wee!! I'm on the LIST ^_~Vm

I just want everyone to know that Ad Astra IS NOT AN ANIME CONVENTION! Just in case people were planning on checking it out but thought it was something that it is not. If you are in to litterary stuff, as in books, then I hope to see you there. If you arn't, I beg of you, please don't come and then complain that it wasn't what you thought it would be. Do your research before you spend the money.
I believe that there is an Anime Room, but from the sounds of it that means ONE room. But I like books. Books are cool! ^_^

01-12-2004, 09:24 PM
Well as much as Ad-Astra sounds cool, I most likely won't be able to attend but if you see any good books, get me a copy or two kia ;)

MAC-TAC I'm going with Seifer since Infini and a friend were going as FFX chars and we are going as a group. But it doesn't mean I won't be hanging with the crew. You guys rock!!! (and girls ^_^) And add me to the dinner list as well. Great more money to save up on MAC-TAC and less on Yu-gi-oh *sigh*

As far as I know, so far I'm going. I'll be re-wearing Kana for one day and wearing Selphie the other.

When you say going to dinner you mean in full costume? or back in boring civilian clothes?

Mekou

>> When you say going to dinner you mean in full costume? or back in boring civilian clothes?

Costume of course! >=D No one is allowed to change out of their costume! Muwahahaah! (Unless thier costume is very big and will get in the way a lot or is very skimpy and cold ^^; ) Nah, it's up to the person though if we wear our costumes it'll be fun. =)

*waves Cornercon flag*

Kia
01-13-2004, 05:23 AM
lol! It was more like half costumes, which looked even weirder that full costumes sitting in Harvey's. ^_^ Especially when there was elaborate make-up involved. sometimes people looked weirder wearing normal clothes but still wearing the make-up. ^_^
If I can manage to go, put me on the dinner list too! Can't guarentee that I'll parade around in costume outside of the con though. March weather and my Rogue costume don't necessarily mix. :cool:

Mage
01-13-2004, 11:39 AM
Crap, I knew there was a reason I was worried about Ad Astra. *thinking* Wait a second....Ah, that's it. It's the weekend before my final exams start. Realistically, I know that studying my ass off for most of my exams didn't help me all that much (damn you, physics), so I probably can spare the weekend. Since I'd probably be able to get a drive there and back every day, my concerns with money would be the registration fee and transportation from Ottawa and back to Ottawa. x_X; One more reason for me to get a job. ^^;;;

It'll probably be at least mid-Feb. before I know whether I'll go to TAC, Ad-Astra or both. I really want to see everyone again, though. ^_^

I don't know what costume I'd wear...probably whatever I got finished. Maybe Agrias, since I might be further along the path to finishing her by then? I'd hope to be done my Satsuki costume too, but realistically speaking, I probably won't be finished, considering I keep forgetting the hammer the darn buckles when I'm at home and it's too loud to do in residence.

01-13-2004, 01:07 PM
I'd like to go have dinner with this crowd too, but can't confirm yet. If my sera-myu crew manages to get together I should hang out with them. Otherwise I'm free to join you all..

When and where is this dinner party thingie
What's the Corner con
So ya... can someone answer them?! Please and thank you! ^^

Mekou
01-13-2004, 04:27 PM
When and where is not 100% confirmed yet. It won't be until at least the beginning of March. =/

Cornercon is a nickname that was given to TAC. =)

Hang around this community long enough and you'll come to understand that we usually give nick names to all the cons. The November Toronto Anime Convention (a one day con also run by the gready Hobbystar) was dubbed November Con, Corner Con (b/c our particular group spent the whole time sitting in the corner being very loud and annoying ^_^) El Big-O-Waste of Time-O, and so on and so forth.

The dinner is very informal. It's just a bunch of people all deciding to swarm a fast food joint and drive the staff nuts. It's not an official part of the con, just as there is no official time (I think) that we all decided we'd had enough of hanging around in a hallway doing nothing and wanted to go and do a whole lot of nothing somewhere else. ^_^

Infini
01-13-2004, 10:40 PM
I've taken apart both my Yuna costumes with the good (heh...) intention of repairing them. Hopefully my FFX one will be back together for TAC, but I'm starting to doubt it because my new job isn't very good for money right now. I will be wearing my Inuyasha for most of the con, since it's complete save for weapon props and contacts, which can be left out for a small con like this if I can't afford them, and because it's currently my absolute favourite costume I've ever worn. If I can't afford to buy the fabric for my Yuna obi, then I'll be wearing my (cheaply made) Kikyo costume for the other day.

Does anyone know the rules for weapons? I have a bow/arrows for the kikyo costume. The arrows are fake and the bow is ancient and has an elastic string as opposed to a proper one. I guess you COULD fire a fake arrow from it if you really wanted to but I doubt it would go very far. I guess it would be better to email the con, but thought I would ask here first.

I'm coming for the dinner definitely, since I missed out on it last con! I'll be staying at the hotel nearby so that I don't have to worry about my car, and I don't have a time limit for anything.

-Infini

Saffi
01-14-2004, 12:41 AM
I think as far as weapons go, it's ok to carry them, but you're not allowed to swing swords or staffs around, and you probably can't fire the arrows.

This is in the building.. out side i believe anything goes.

i havent really given much thought to MTAC yet as far as costuming goes...X_X

my sister wants to do Lenne/Yuna Popstars again....but ERK... >_>; we'll see.

Personally though, I would much rather do DOA3's Leifang instead ^_^

I don't want to wear Nausicaa for the first time @ MTAC lol...so she's being saved for AN ^_^

So ya...ramblings aside....its most likely Leifang for me ^_^

mikcy
01-14-2004, 03:11 PM
For the March TAC, I'm not offically sure if I'm going or not. Oh well, if I do, I have a cheap outfit to wear. :) *points to self* cheater dsoakd lmao

As far as I know Corner Con doesn't *have* booths that you cold rent, unless you're a dealer. It's too tiny a con for an artists alley, and not enough people for Hobbystar to care enough about setting one up.

Anyone know what time it starts/finishes at? Probably not, since there's nothing on the website about it yet. And, thanks to all the fabric stores having huge sales this month, I can probably fix my Yuna costume for TAC. I might buy Inuyasha contacts instead of Yuna fabric though, as I'm a little too lazy to embroider stuff now.

I need to start sewing...

Safe guess is the usually "con standard time" so Saturday it could possibly be 10am-6pm and Sunday 11am-5pm. I have no authority to say this, especially b/c Hobbystar is too damn lazy to undate their website and give peopel any *actual information*, but I've grown used to it.

Remember, you can crash at my house. ;)

Toronto AnimeCON. It's a new hobbystar (CNAnime people) 'convention' held in the Metro Toronto Convention Center. There was one in November and will be another on March (20-21?) this year. I didn't check the dates, so they might be wrong.
