Hey everybody!

Coming January 27th is Frostcon!

What is it?
Frostcon is a convention for anime, games, comics and more! It's a multi-genre convention for fans of all ages!

Where is it?
Frostcon will be held at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in Toronto, Ontario.

Passes can only be bought at the door, but the door price is really awesome! Only 10 for the day for a convention with panels, workshops, artists and dealers! As well as guests!

Who are the guests?
Currently confirmed guests include ZombieBitMe, Toronto Joker, Erin Cossar, and Th3 Rogue!

Any questions or anything of the like can be directed here, or you can visit either of these two sites:

sounds interesting but we'll probably skip it for this year, as we don't USUALLY got to first year cons unless they are super close, and i have NO idea where this is...

Well I'll probably hit this one up, and bring a friend along.
First cons can be shaky, but if people don't go there might not be a second year, and I'd like to see more cons in Canada (plus one in January winter blues go away).

The St. Lawrence Centre is like two blocks from Union station on Front street. It's not hard to get to or find, for people that don't know.

Unfortunately I can't go for this year with Con-G in February and needing to travel to Toronto if I did (not exactly cheap for a one-day event, and I'll have just done so for my bf&I's anniversary too)...but next year I'll be back in college, in Toronto, so I'm definitely coming then!

@Kawaiilove : I'll see if I can get in touch with the person in charge of AA. If you haven't heard from them. But I think your name is in our artists list on the website.

Programming info should be up hopefully sometime next week~! Hopefully. I'll need confirmation on that from con chair and everyone on that before I can do anything on the website about it.

Though I can confirm the photoshoot schedules. So if you're cosplaying from any of these series you can come by and have your photo taken at the convention photobooth - run by me and Ariya Productions.

Indoors (con photobooth):
11am - Vocaloid / Black Rock Shooter
12pm - Puella Magi Madoka Magika
1pm - Homestuck
2pm - Kuroshitsuji
3pm - Naruto
4pm - Video games
5pm - My Little Pony

Outdoors (Berczy Park):
12pm - Resident Evil
1pm - Pokemon
2pm - Axis Powers Hetalia
3pm - Rise of the Guardians

oh geez week and a half I am nervous. Also worried about them asking people from artist alley to pay for their table sooner- they origninally said we could pay at door.

Edit: never mind they said we could pay at the door but they prefer it paid sooner, Im out of the city I may have to pay at door.

Im real sorry for reposting =w=;;
I hate to spam up this thread up..but anyways
Im going to Brampton this weekend to look for my wig(s). Which ever wig I find (and can actually get) thats the character I'll be. Here's hoping I find one =w=;;. And if I dont well ill just be -- well me xD

Edit:
Turns out I'm going as Russia because my waifu lent me her Russia wig xD. l didn't even ask, we were at a restaurant and we were talking about Frostcon and deciding who we should be and she goes "you can borrow my Russia wig!" so l said yes because I'm dying to cosplay Russia xD. But hopefully I'll have my own Russia wig soon.

Not sure if this allowed and I might just post it in the fb event, but a friend of mine bought a wig for a cosplay for this event and it turned out being too short (too much of a hassle to return it/she can use the current length for something else anyway); if anyone going to the con is looking to sell a decent quality medium/short brown wig kinda similar to Yui from K-ON, PM me? Thanks! :3

I'm coming as Sakura Haruno, the costume itself looks pretty messy but it's my first one I made (and also my first time sewing :$ ) so I'll give it a good test run at Frostcon, so I can tweak it for Anime North!

Can't wait to see who shows up ^^
It'll be fun to meet all of you :)

I'm glad to see everyone had generally a good time :) We're working on improving for next year already :)

Keep in mind since it was our first Frostcon, always going to be hiccups the first year. Found out from someone who started going to AN in it's first year that they had a lot of rough patches too, so we shall work on ours.
