I've never seen the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre during the daytime so I might go this year.

If anyone is willing to map out a TCC route from Union or Dundas square that would be helpful. lol

Not sure how to use the map you linked to, but here's written directions (it's actually pretty easy). Take the subway up the Yonge line (from either Union or Dundas stations) to Eglinton station. Then get on a #100 "Flemingdon Park" bus at the station (just follow the signs). That bus will take you right from the subway to the con by driving along Eglinton to Don Mills, then turning left, then almost immediately making a right onto Wynford Dr. I can't remember the name of the stop for the JCCC (maybe someone else knows?) but I think it's the 3rd on Wynford - just cross the street and you're there. If you're going to the hotel instead, stay on the bus a few more stops; it will make a left at lights at the end of Wynford, then pull a U-turn and head back through the intersection. You'll want the first stop on the other side of the intersection; then just walk up the driveway.

... I took the TTC to get to Ad-Astra for several years when it was in that hotel :)

This always such an awesome little con! Started off little, but growing fast! I'm in charge of all the MLP panels and events again this year, so if anyone has any ideas, shoot them my way. I'm always open to new and fun ideas! =D

Maybe Enzo if I can fix up the costume.

This will be my first year going to APOP, but I'm totally psyched. I've only been to Anime North so I was glad to learn of it because I couldn't finish my cosplay by AN so I wanted to find another opportunity to wear it without waiting too long. I am also dragging my bf to it as well. (he's never been to a con or a carnival, we will see how he manages haha)

I will be cosplaying as Amazon Pandora from Kid Icarus: Uprising, and my boyfriend will be Magnus.

I'm also super stoked that they have workshops!!!! And cirus workshops!!!! I hope it's as super fun as it looks. If it is I will find a way to come every year. Probably won't get a hotel though.

This would be my first time going to Atomic Lollipop!

Though, I have a question.
On their site it doesn't list anything about large props / weaponry.
Does anyone who's attended know anything about this???

Does anyone have room space for a 29 F? I just called and apparently the block is sold out and I'm supposed to be doing some panels so I'm really desperate. I can fit in such choice locations as under a desk and the inside of a closet.

Oh crap, really?! and this was in June, too. Have you found space for yourself yet? I'm in the same boat regarding accommodations, so I recently asked ppl openly like you did on another AL site. I have yet to hear back. But will relay my results in case others here are like me. If I had a room, I'd open it to you. Can't have panels be cancelled. 8O

I attended last year and there was no weapons check process as far as I could tell. Some had a few large ones but, of course, held them responsibly.

i was able to get a room but right now i'm at risk of having my roommates bail on me and leave me with the cost. I'll let you know if I have space open up cause i really don't want to screwed over with hotel costs.

Looking to attend this year but of course my friends and I left booking the hotel too late. If anyone ends up not needing a room this year please consider sending me a message and I'll take it off your hands, haha.

OH I am 9001% down to pay. I don't know of anyone close that I could ask to join in too, but I've had ppl bail on me a few weeks before AN for stupid reasons so I know the frustration. Even if your roommates are still in, I'd be fine w/taking the floor and lowering everyone's share.

and as piratealice implied, there are plenty of others to look to. I suggest putting your hoof down and seek immediate confirmation w/your roommates, rather than have them pussyfoot til the last second and possibly bail. Giving them the freedom to confirm NEVER pays off ....unless they've been reliable for 3+ years.

Direct Route:
- From Union Station, take the Northbound (northeast) to Yonge.
- go down the stairs to the east-west line; head east to Broadview.
- go up the stairs to ground-level and board the route 100 bus.

* this will take you right by Wynford Dr. which you can walk up to get to the JCCC.
* you'll know you're REALLY, REALLY close once you go over the bridge that overlooks the DVP (the highway).


There is one good alternative route, but you'll need to walk a bit. For cosplayers and such, it'll be a pain, so just stick to using the 100.



(Holy crudnuggets, 1000+ posts. What did I do on this site...)

Gotta admit I kinda wish I had my GoT costume ready because of DJ Hodor, even though it would be the worst possible thing to wear to APop XD
I'll get video of him for you Uta ~_^

yeah, i've got one but it would be WAYYY too hot and constrictive. Thinking of wearing my modern character one, but it's book based and i think it'll just confuse people. And Hodor hasn't read the books, so he wouldn't get it either :P

My cosplay plans (subject to change) are Avengers!Pepper Potts for Friday, Fluttershy for Saturday, and Dragonite for Sunday. With lots of sloth kigu sprinkled in at random for good measure.

@Shiro, I don't suppose there's a grid-version of the schedule available at all?

No Cosplay for me this time around. I'm just going to do Lolita Fashion for the first time. :) I hope I don't embarrass myself (or brake any Lolita rules). I have done my homework so I think I'm good to go :P

See everyone at the Plushie Workshop!
