:D Yay! I think I can go to Anime North! Last year my brother went, but I was busy. But this year I don't think I have anything on the calendar for that weekend yet. Not definate; but I might be going with him and his friends this year. Yay! My first convention!

I have 3 cosplays planned if I do go. I have an NES-style Maria costume done (from FF2j). I just need the pants, vest, and arm thingies for my Amano-style Celes costume, and I have my wall market Cloud crossplay planned out. :D I'm so excited!

I was just wondering if anyone wants to dress as a character from FF6, FF7, or FF2. I would absolutely love to have a wall market Aeris to parade me around when I dress like wall market Cloud or a Firion or Locke to hang out with. I don't think any of my brother's friends are into cosplaying.

Also, is there anything I should know about conventions and entering contests? I have 3 possible costumes to enter, plus I can sing and dance for a skit. And I have a really awesome AMV I made.

Not everyone returns for Sunday since the main con days are Friday and Saturday. Sunday's more of a wind down day and people get last minute things they wanna do/see done. It's also the least cosplayed day. Sunday is comfy day, so many cosplayers leave the costumes behind, or wear less elaborate ones and just hit up the dealers' room or where ever.

If you're going to be around on Saturday, just drop by anyway. Even if you're too late for the Masquerade (which rocks), join us for the J-pop/J-rock dance. That's really late at night, so you'll definitely make it. You really should try to make it for as much Saturday as possible. It's the best day. XD

Yup, that's true. I usually like Sundays the best since it's not soo busy and just more calm. May be that's because after the Masquerade and the dance everyone gets all tired out *lol*.

Saturdays are always chaotic because of the Masquerade! XD

I don't think I would be able to go on the saturday night even if I wanted to *_* and it would probably be a waste of money for just going a couple hours the night~ but! if I go to anime north next year, I will definitely go ALL days! XD
