ancient japan?? 0.o

Cosplay can be defined as "costume-play" so you can be ANYTHING you want from ANY medium (manga, movie, tv, comics, etc.)

Yuh huh. I know that, but the girl who told me this meant the skits. I was confused by that because from all the research I had done I didn't know that there was a theme to skits? O.o

nah. skits can be about anything. if they keep the same rules as last year, the Masquerade presentations are only 60 secs long and theirs a separate event for ppl that want to actually put together a skit.

the themes are pretty random. there are always tons based on anime/ manga (duh! ANIME north... hehe). the most memorable ones tend to have some humour in them.

Congrats on your first convention!
I hope you enjoy yourself!
Skits can be whatever you want them to be, but just make sure you read the convention's guidelines detailing the 'no-nos' and the 'yes-yes''!

That's where all the information will be, eventually. It's the same webpage next year, so you can bookmark it once and keep it forever. :)

hey hey! Congrats on going to your first con *pats on tha back* I might be able to come to Anime North, but considering that I'm from North Carolina it might be a bit difficult^_~ I might be able to go though...but it's not for certain yet!

oi! It's also my first convention, so I kinda have a question concerning the costumes. Do you wear the costumes all three days? Or should you make different costumes? (I hope not though, I'm running low on cash!)

Anyways, Ja Ne!

You can wear the same costume if you would like^_~ It's just more fun to have more than one...but you don't have to! For my first con I only had 3 costumes and I wore one for each day. It just depends on the preference of the cosplayer....some bring like 3 per day!!!!!!!!!!!! Whatever floats your boat my friend^0^

Ah! Thank you! Thank you! My Jiraiya costume is costing me an arm and a leg right now, and I also have to make my friend's Itachi costume, so I didn't know if it was done or not. Man, there should be a tread on 'convention etiquette'!

^______^ 3 per day... XD that's like me! You don't have to spend an arm & a leg. My super gothloli costume that has like... 8 petticoats(o.o) only cost me 50$ total. :D Just hunt for bargins! Bouclair always has sales(I used to work there... they were a pain to change all the signs!)

I know, I have like 20 costumes planned for the con! That wouldn't be too bad if I had a job. I'm going on babysitting money so I'm hoping I'll have more opportunities to babysit before the con!! ^^;;;

I'm also jobless: I'm relying solely on the money in my back account. This is going to be my first AN, though I've been to CN for the last three years. I'll be another AN newbie with you ;)

Everyone, trust me you are going to enjoy yourselves there. This is my 3rd year going to AN and it hasn't ruined my fun. And if you want to show off your best (or for some only) costume, wear it on Saturday cuz that's when many people come. (Half from the weekend campers, half that only show for Saturday because of many events.) If you are wearing a really good costume, beware the glompers. I warn you early on, some people tend to go overboard when seeing they're favourite char.

I just read the pet peeves thread o.o Oh my, now I'm suddenly scared to wear skirts without shorts underneath! Is there a lot of bad fanboys?

Oh yay! ^^ I hope to see you there! I'm going as a pink and black Chii, Rydia from FF4, and Sailor Moon. Look for me ^^

Who are you all going as to anime north? ^^

Rydia? That's great. ^_^ The young Rydia or grown-up Rydia? ^_^ If you want to see who's going as what, there's another thread in this forum dedicated to that, so check it out, though it's a little long.

Oh, and I wouldn't worry too much about the fanboys...the fangirls are scarier.

Fangirls ARE scarier.
No doubt about it.

Because a fanboy doesn't actual dare TOUCH you, fangirls think they have special privlidges and don't even think.

well, If I do go...AHEM! Sorry...some of these topics have given me second thoughts^_~ J/K...but if I do get to come I would probably bring my moogle, gothic lolita, chii, shiva from FFX, possibly yuna from X-2, and Zelda! Think that's about it...but knowing me I have forgotten one in there some where^______^
