I bought my pre-reg at AN. When do I actually get it emailed to me? All I've gotten is the "you've registered but this isn't a con pre-reg" email.

When do we get confirmation emails? I got 2 tickets a couple weeks ago and all I got was an email each saying payment was cleared..

Anyways, this is most likely my cosplay lineup:
Friday- Zero (Vampire Knight)
Saturday- Alucard (Hellsing)
Sunday- Lambdadelta (Umineko)

If you purchased tickets at AN and ConBravo! - you have received a confirmation email but not the ticket yet - All I can say is sorry it's taking so long (we have some things happening and we are having a discussion to change ticketing services so we don't want to confuse too many people with 2 sets of tickets) Hopefully it will get resolved in a week or 2.

If you purchased tickets online - you should have recieved a ticket - if not let me know and I can pass the info on. (technology and me are not the best of buddies so I don't do that work :P - dense boy and all)

That makes me sad too that you think we don't have a lot of love for it *tear*

You should have received a confirmation email from purchasing a "ticket" at AN - no actual ticket has been sent yet. If you did not receive a confirmation email, please email us at info@con-g.com - we might have the wrong email address.

An actually sub forum would promote cosplay gathering request, but there is a tone of love for this con.

BTW I'm opening request up for what I should wear on Friday out of what I've already made. I'm think of Merida, Yukio, or Jack as they are warmer costumes to wear. ;)

Also be carrying frust shape candy and Star candy in masons jars and cupcake shaped truffles around on Saturday as I won't be going to D-TAC in December. lol

I have to remind myself to wrap those truffles individually in cellophane the week before going.

what i mean by "not a lot of love" is there isnt a lot of talking and posting in the forums. thats all i ment not anything bad just not a lot of talking between people. sorry for the confuson!

Agreed. And I like candy!!!


My brother... for the most part has decided on Skyrim inspired cosplays. I figure that it is a warmer cosplay AND an excuse to wear my awesome fur boots. Faux fur that is but still toasty. Note on that... I have to start that... lots of hand sewing involved.

!! ATTENTION !!

We have switched to a new, better ticketing system to make it quicker and easier for you to sign in when you arrive at Con-G.

If you pre-registered ONLINE prior to Nov. 26th: This means you will receive a NEW TICKET in your email through our new ticketing partner, Ticketbud.com. It will be sent to the email address you used to register online. Your old ticket is now NULL and VOID and cannot be used at Con-G by you or any other person.

If you pre-registered IN PERSON at Anime North or ConBravo!: You will receive your ticket through Tickedbud to the email address you provided to us at the convention.

If you pre-registered online on or after Nov. 26th: Do nothing. You are A-OK!

If you Tickedbud ticket says something like "thank you for your payment of $0.00", just ignore that. We know you've already paid the proper amount, or else you wouldn't be getting a ticket this way at all. ;)


**** Please print out the new Ticketbud ticket, or display it on your smartphone when you come to Con-G to sign in. ****

Ticketbud tickets will be sent out within the next few days. If you do not receive your Ticketbud ticket by December 8th, please check your spam filter, and then email info@con-g.com and we will resolve it for you.

We deeply apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

My cosplays are going well too... Lambda's been done since September, but I will have to fix a few TINY things before the con, but I can do that the day before honestly...
Alucard I just need to make the trench coat now and hat cover, and waiting for my gloves and glasses in the mail, and my Seras is making my Cassul and Jackel...
I THINK our 3rd cosplay is going to be Vampire Knight (Zero for me) but we'll see, it depends if our Yuki can come Friday... we might still do it since the manga is ending like the next week, but we might also do something else... we'll see XP

Yep! I have the base boots (my old steel toe work boots - needed to be replaced, but I don't want to get rid of them, so they're being used for Vincent), all the armour materials, cape is half done, all my fabric, a wig. I'm good to go for him :) All I need is another pair of leather gloves.

Oh and need to make buckles... but the decorative ones will be done with foam and cardboard :P

I have a few questions regarding panels. Back in September, I filled out the form on the con-g site to run a panel, but I never heard anything back from that. I'm not sure if my inquiry was received at all, or if it was and was rejected.
Has there been any talk of panels yet? Have any panel suggestions been reviewed yet? Will notices of confirmation or rejection be sent out soon?

I still like to have the money before hand when I'm going to be spending a large sum of money. Plus, if I have money from everyone before hand I can kind of guarantee that no one will be ditching out on us.

Indeed! :) You're welcome to join us at any point in the day, and during the panel if we get a response soon... I just sent them a more detailed email that a friend of mine came up with (she can't make it but she runs lots of things like this at other cons, so she knows how to word it and will help us plan even if she can't come!) if we dont get a panel, or even if we do, we'll probably have a photoshoot with some of the run around photogs at the con for sure! :)

I know the whole plot, though going through each VN will obviously deepen it. I'm being naughty and starting with 7. XD And my friend is going to make it for me. She's in New Hampshire, but everything is still awesome. She gets paid, I get awesome cosplay. I have to get the wig though. XD

Ought to have the non-lit portions of Quorra done by the end of next week, and Twilight Sparkle almost done by the end of next week.
I do have a question involving the masquerade, though- since I plan on competing with Quorra, to show off the lights in full for a few moments I'd want the stage lights cut/dimmed as low as possible during. Is that possible with the stage's setup? Also, I may need my boyfriend to help me out with the switches, battery replacement, etc. while in the green room (not 100%, it'll depend how long my batteries last and where my switches end up). He's not competing, though, so he'd be something more like a handler, but not needed on or exiting the stage. Is that allowed?

Also a question about panels. I have read some of the suggestions and if there is room I could volunteer to do a skill (knitting, crochet, etc etc) if there is time available? I know that you need to email on the site. Are times given to you or assigned?

Also a question about panels. I have read some of the suggestions and if there is room I could volunteer to do a skill (knitting, crochet, etc etc) if there is time available? I know that you need to email on the site. Are times given to you or assigned?

Sorry I had to check with the people running the pokemon tourney :)
5th generation game: that is, Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 or White 2

To suggest a panel - just use the email form on the website :)

Thank you for getting back! That means I need to put away Paper Mario and get Pokemon 2 (starting out fresh might be a good choice).

I did suggest a panel - even offered to run it :) That is if anyone made sense of my jot-notes...

Okay so I think i've gotten back to everyone who emailed us (with the exception of the past few days, still have a few of those to do). If anyone hasn't heard back from us, please resubmit your panel idea - I'm concerned our site is eating forms again.

Again thanks for everyone's patience in regards to this matter!!!

Also looking forward to Jan to release some of our guests *evil grin*

I just have to sew the waistband/fasteners and pocket on my Twilight Sparkle skirt and make her horn (and my shoulderbag, I probably won't have done on time, but it's not needed).... and do a lot more for Quorra. Mid-January it's time to get the wiring done and I'll be spending ages sewing things onto the suit to finish. Plus I still have to style the wig and get started on altering the boots.

I'm switching to doing Vincent Valentine as a woman - the pants and shirt material weren't accurate for doing him properly so woman it is.... but at least when I do him properly in the future, all I'll have to actually make is the pants and shirt. Vincent's also being turned into a woman due to all the work I have to do on Jinx, Rydia, and Xemnas.

Oh my goodness! Started the Skyrim cosplays. Vinyl work is a pain in the rear especially the blisters I have been getting (on my hands, not my rear...). Bro's warrior is going well, the vest is sewn, and some of the medallions are drying, but attaching them will be another story... I started my quiver and I need to strengthen it somehow... Also started crocheting a belt for the archer. I have never played Skyrim so I am just going off pictures and there really isn't one with an archer so I am winging it.

Oh AND I am training my pokemans :P

Well, you’d better get on that! The hotel is filling up and if you want to stay right in the thick of things, booking a room at the Delta is the way to go.

I was only there breifly on Sunday, but I was the Dragonborn wandering around the stage area during the costume show. This is actually the outfit I was planning to wear to Con-G, and One big thing I learned at Faerie Fest is that I do NOT want to get worn out on the bus ride over. My time at Faerie fest was unfortunately very limited due to the amount of time I spent walking just trying to find the dern place ^ ^;

Planning ahead this time! Or at least trying to. I was hoping somebody would lend me their hotel room to change in in exchange for some of the room cost.

Re:Hotels

There are still rooms available at the delta - we put more into our block if anyone is dying to stay in the same hotel.

The other hotel, The Best Western is right across the street and was our home our first two years so their accommodations are quite nice and they have a lower room cost to compensate for the 5 minute walk :P

Is that the price for a single person, or are you and someone else splitting the bill? I live in Brampton and would like to go for 2 days but I didn't want to get a hotel room for $100 or so a night, but driving would be 1 hour both ways. My last resort was to just go on Saturday, but since the weekend pass was so cheep I didn't want to pass up going a for at least friday and saturday.

siyrean
01-23-2013, 04:13 AM
that's the price difference, not the cost. I'm saving $45 by staying at the Best Western rather than the Delta. The total bill will be around $200.



I'm trying to convince my brother to come, I wanna stick him in a plaid shirt and not tell him he's Charming when I'm dressed as Emma. It's kinda crazy how similar he looks to Charming when you consider I'm somewhat similar to Emma and we're related. He has a bit of a thing for my friend that's going who could pull off Snow, but I'm having a hard time convincing her to wear a pink cardigan.

sweet_kat22 - not sure which your situation is but you can also volunteer to help pay for a pass at the con assuming transportation and accommodation isn't an issue :)

moving this feb money is going to that so far if i make more money i can go
probably cant afford the hotel/ trip there. But im hoping to make more by then.

As kind of a clarification about my previous post about looking for somebody to lend their hotel room for me to change into my costume, Even a room at the Best Western across the street would be adequate, and I am willing to pay a quarter of your room cost for the service. So please give me a PM if you are willing.

Decided to bring my CC butterfly gown and maybe wear it for a bit since I have no time to make any new costumes for Con-G. ;__; Whether I'll actually wear it will depend on how crowded the con space is though, since big ball gowns are a nuisance to everyone if it's too crowded.

Otherwise, stuck in artist alley as a normie... or maybe a lolita. haha.

If I can tough it out in my Red Queen during Fanexpo 2010 (the horror, the horror) and Anime North 2011 you can do a larger space Con-G this year. ;)

I think you should! We wore our Euphemia and CC gowns Sunday of FanExpo because it was an easy thing to wear for us... ballgowns are the LEAST combersome cosplays for us lol XP oddly enough... and ConG is in a new, much larger space this year, so even if we increase numbers, it will be fairly open i imagine! :)

We do have a coat check :) The cost is $2/day :) With proceeds going to one of our charities.

We have arranged with the hotel for free parking (normally it costs money to park at teh delta but we've rented the parking lot too :)) Also that sounds really funny.

Is Con-G capped? Will we be able to buy tickets at the door? Not sure if I can go. I wont know until the middle of the month because we are unsure if we are moving that weekend or the beginning of March :(

Oh geez, techincally Con-G is "capped"....but I doubt our attendance will be anywhere near the fire code for our new hotel this year ( aka this is why we moved from the Holiday Inn). So I'll say no worries :)

Does anyone have any tips for taking public transit to Guelph from (downtown) Toronto? It's going to be my friends and I's first time at Con-G and we'll most likely be taking a Greyhound bus there to Guelph U since it's not too far from the con; but I'm just wondering if anyone knows any other efficient routes and ways to get there.

Thanks! c:

Dart:Dense Boy
02-01-2013, 09:29 AM
Okay - several options for Transit from Toronto to GUelph

1) Greyhound - probably the most recommended in my opinion as it's the quickest 1.5 - 1 hr drive - The greyhound goes from the station in TO and only has 1 stop at Aberfoyle before hitting the University of Guelph. You will actually drive past the hotel before it turns into the university. It's then maybe a 5-10 minute walk and there is an entrance into the Delta from the corner of stone/gordon (main intersection).

2) Go Bus/Train - 2 hr trip - but tends to be a bit cheaper
Depending on what time you leave on Friday night you can take the train from Toronto to Guelph. All the other times it's the bus that takes a few stops along the way. There are a few different buses with some leaving from missisauga, union station, and a handful of others.
There is the option to go to the university - just let the driver know otherwise the stop is downtown Guelph and you'll have to take the University city bus to get to the convention (not a huge deal but $3 more or so).

3)Via Rail also goes from Toronto to Guelph - but again you'd have to take a city bus down to the hotel but this seems to be the fastest route with just over an hour to get there.

WARPAINTandUnicorns
02-01-2013, 02:20 PM
The 15 University bus doesn't go downtown anymore it now a perimeter route for the area stopping at the University.

The bus you need to take is the 2A if your Downtown. (It's the one I will be taking)
It stops at the University or one half block east (in front of the Athletic Club) of the Delta is your two options to get to the Delta.

You just pass the Delta on the but if you stop at the Athletic Club stop on the bus. ;)

If your a student or purchase your tickets online in advance it $24 round trip.
In person it's $44 round trip without a student discount.

You take the Greyhound not from Union but The bus terminal next to the Eaton Centre and close to Dundas Square.

You get off at the University loop in Guelph.

Phone the Best Western about luggage check. ;)

If you bring a laptop, a few of the photographers will let you snag the memory card during some downtime ;)

But yes CONVOKE! We always head to them when DROO isn't available, or sometimes we do both XP we will definately be doing a shoot with them on Saturday... maybe the other 2 days we'll get some but 2 of us have pics by them of those characters... its just Yuuki/Maria... so maybe we'll get some group shots in that case and let her get individuals :)

I love photographers who let you take all the images and CHOOSE the ones you want and EDIT them the way you want... I'm sorry photographers, but you just don't edit the way I like... sure it looks cool conceptually, but I'd like to be able to make my own further edits to make myself look my best! because to be honest... I dont look good in most photos, you know the saying that the camera adds 10 pounds? yeah that... but photographers never fix that... and if I've paid for photos, I want to be proud of how i look in them...

I certainly hope you aren't a Journeyman because I will get my butt kicked (I'm sorry if you're like Master or something and that's insulting to you! :S I have only been in 1 masquerade where anyone who was really anyone was in it and it was AN and AN is like... impossible to know who's who!)


Progress! ;7; It's finally starting to look like Chii's outfit, after 9 straight hours of sewing. How is everyone elses cosplay progress going?

Well my Friday cosplay (Zero) has been finished for 3 years now... I just have to make sure all the pieces are together...
Saturday (Alucard) is done as far as I can work on them, my Seras is making my guns for me... I just have to do a bit of minor sewing on my Seras's gloves...
Sunday (Battler), I just have to fix the zipper a bit (one corner is starting to loosen up on its seam!) and take in my Beato's new vest (suit/19th visitor version)

Goodness, wearing eight makeup items on your eyes alone is a novelty. I've got three colours eyeshadow, three kinds of eyeliner, mascara and false lashes on for Quorra. @_@

Thanks, I'm excited to wear it on Canadian turf! =) Especially since I didn't cosplay my last Con-G so I'm itching to mingle in costume. *-*

Lol no, not journeyman, and I'm not insulted at all. ^^ I'm artisan/master (not sure which one to put myself in).

AN masquerade was insane. I only got to know the people in my den and my friends who I knew were entering. I recall seeing your Code Geass entry though! What are you entering for Con-G?

Quick question (I have emailed twice but may have gotten lost)

Do the projectors for the panels have an HDMI input?

Yeah, at AN I only got to know a few people in my den, and not even by name, except I'm sure that a few people from cosplay.com were in it... we were SO nervous and I basically froze solid on stage, I couldn't look up! XP but I've had some minor practice since so I shouldn't be like that here! I'm entering my Alucard costume! :)

@Kakera - Since you won with Vickybunnyangel at Otakuthon, you'd be in Master now :)

Me I'm still in Novice. But I'm quite proud of my Xemnas so *fingers crossed*

I'm entering in Journeyman, and obviously I'm hopeful. I'm not expecting a tailoring award, though. Handsewn pleather doesn't look impressive at all on the underside.

they don't really look at the underside though, especially if its close to your body... I've only competed 3 times, but even at AN they've never asked me to take anything off for them to inspect, they've mainly looked at the outside with a bit of prodding, but not much (They mostly wanted to see how i had my hat attached to my wig and bow on my back for Ciel and the hems for my dresses), and asked how I made it and a few other questions for things I didn't mention... But I guess each judge could have their own way... but i doubt anyone would ask you to take anything off (it would be unfair to ask someone with a jacket to take it off to inspect it, but not able to ask someone to take off a corset (because obviously they CAN'T) to inspect it, you know?)

I actually need to see if I can have my boyfriend with me in the green room for a handler of sorts- I need him to adjust my brightness knob, slot in fresh batteries and be readily available in case an emergency repair is needed. And maybe help me navigate the stairs. If he's allowed under those circumstances in the green room, he'll have to take off my disk dock case to show the circuitboard and such off. No way can I reach it myself and it's the biggest/hardest part of the costume, so I'd show it to the judges if possible. I guess I'll have to ask when I register.
(Also, the workmanship judges at Con-G last year did look at seams pretty well. If it could easily be flipped up/back to look at they did, and a few parts of my costume can be rolled back or unfastened to look at.)

I'm watching KH 3D (because I refuse to buy another game device just to play it!).
I have so much love seeing tribal Xemnas on screen and lamenting what Tulip fabric paint failed in washing machine when I did his costume the first time. (aka the opacity washed out of it!)

If I ever get the proper leatherette I'll remake him some day. lol I still have a my rave stick!


I'm not sure If I'm entering as I'm still working on the undershirt and it's silly layers. (I pray the jumper will be easier!)

It was actually my 2nd (my CCs first) as i did ConBravo 2011, but I failed even WORSE at that one and I don't usually speak of it lol XP at least I can look back on AN 2012! I can't even make myself watch my CB 2011 entry!
I'll be with my Seras and Rip all day before it and they will be cheering me on from the audience XP You're CCs gunna be great!

From what I have read, and been told in the past, according to ICG guidelines, if you have ever won a "Best in Show", or won any award in the Master class, then you are supposed to enter in Master from then on, even if it was part of a group.


I do have a question about the masq, though. Although I will have flip flops or slippers of some kind for walking around, the character I am cosplaying is usually barefoot. What are the rules regarding footwear while on stage? Can I go barefoot, or would I be required to wear the slippers/flip flops?

as far as I know you'd be allowed to take them off just as you go on stage (you'd have to ask for sure WHEN but at AN people are barefoot on stage all the time!)

i'm unsure what division to enter my Chii Cosplay, i've only ever competed in one masq, last years con-g in the novice and didn't win an award i don't think. But my skills are a lot better this year after lots of lessons + many sewing tests for colleges, and this is a rather detailed costume, so i don't know whether to enter up or not

Best in show - automatically bumps you to the next tier is how i've understood it. I won best in show with Tiger so got bumped from Journeyman even though that was my first time entering Journeyman.

You can go barefoot on stage - I don't really see a problem with that :P Not really used to barefoot questions when you're in the winter :P

Enter the division you feel comfortable in :) Often times when you sign up if you ask at the table they might have some suggestions too :)

I entered with a group of eight at Anime North 2008; since some of our group members were Masters, we had to enter in that category. We ended up winning Best Master Craftsmanship and Best in Show, but it was my first ever masquerade. When a fellow novice from that group and I entered by ourselves the following year, we asked the masquerade desk what we should do. They suggested Journeyman, so we went with that. A bump up one level sounds a bit more understandable if you wouldn't belong in that level on your own.

I know your barefoot question was answered, but I'm going to recommend that in the future for anyone who wants to cosplay someone with barefeet, get yourself a pair of sticky sandals. They are awesome, perfect for looking like you're not wearing shoes for cosplay but allowed in stores, and perfect for not getting tan lines in the summer.

really? in all the research I've done, it just says once with any bigger win in Novice to go to Journeyman, and after that, you can win up to 3 times, anything major before jumping again... I'm the kind of person that's both paranoid about where I should enter and paranoid I don't belong in where my past experience is putting me, so I'm constantly doing research XP

Audio for my skit's getting done, and I need to practice my moves a little more... I just hope my intro's not too long. My boyfriend's essentially doing an impersonation of Jeff Bridges/Kevin Flynn speaking on the "The Grid" track in the soundtrack, and the speech goes on for a little over thirty seconds- the version bf did is about twenty. FORTUNATELY it has a fantastic musical buildup, but still, empty stage for that long? Think we might have to speed the music up a hair and even cut some phrases to shave time off the intro.

Contemplating whether I should make a makeshift Lion Ushiromiya cosplay or wait until my friend can make the costume (once she starts it won't take long). I have the wig, though I need to cut it. If I don't do Lion, I could be Tris Prior (from Divergent) for Friday and Sunday. It's tempting.

Oh, and printing new contact cards. T_T

Hands down cut it - 30 seconds of nothing is a loooong time on stage, even an intro, I'd cut it down for sure :) The time limit is 2 minutes but i've seen several entries that would have won awards if it was shorter and they cut the entry off before it got stale.
