Yeah that makes more sense.

Guelph is small, there's only one other conference space on the other side of Guelph and i'm thinking its either the same size or smaller.

Only your second costume?! whoa. I was behind you in line for workmanship judging, your dress was amazing! Congrats

My friends and I agreed that you and your costume looked incredibly beautiful and adorable. Awesome job!

I think the amount of people who stayed at the end of closing ceremonies to help peel the green tape from the floor summed up how loved this con is. We love it so much, we appreciate you all so much, a group of 50 or so con-goers happily peeled away until all the tape was gone! It was such a cute way to end the con, and kinda brought tears to my eyes. Lindsay, Caitlin, all the staff, volunteers, and everyone else involved, thank-you so much again for an amazing year.

Edit: I read this again and it sounds really odd, lol. Oh well! It made sense to me when I wrote it.

@DiGi_Rin: Thanks! Yah, i made Yuna last year, then my other two costumes were modified from regular peices and mostly hot glued together LOL

@seiryuux: Thank you! I'm pretty proud of it :>

And DireKitty, i honestly only stayed for half, that was just the little i got out of it. So sad though, but understandable

Wiring is tricky. >_<



I'm kind of sad that next year will be the last but Guelph can't house the size of it anymore so it can't be called Con-G(Guelph) if it's not here. lol Con-G was great timing for a con as it was 3 month before AN. We all shall send it off with a bang next year.

I know! I am trying to think of something really elaborate for next year (and AN this year) - though my creative vibe is shot at the moment.

Also: I saw your Ms. Sweets cosplay. It was really cute! I wanted to get your picture but I was preoccupied with a gym battle, then I never saw you again .

Yeah, that's what a few people said. (And my boyfriend took video, though I didn't really see it there) At least it re-illuminated to white on a few occasions too, but it breaking just a few minutes before going on got me so frazzled that I pretty well forgot half my routine too. So yah. Going to resolder the leg to be a LOT sturdier and practice more for AN, too. I also am thinking my intro might have been a bit long.

First off, thank you to the wonderful organizers, staff, guests and even attendees! This is still my favorite convention, and it wouldn't be as awesome without everyone's help!

The panels were very informative, people were extremely friendly, I really hope everyone had a good time too~! Even though it was short, and I wasn't able to help out more, I was very happy to have had the chance to talk to some new Den #2 members! I wasn't even aware you were both on Coscom! sailormoonfan14 & ShinobiXikyu, I still love your costumes, I really hope I can see you at AN's Masq. Keep being awesome!

Very happy to see distant friends too, who help me stop being stressed & anti-social. Much hugs all around. It is sad about next year being the last, but I'm grateful for the opportunities given either way~

I'll be wearing her on Friday of AN and the Toronto Cosplay picnic. Nothing like wear a costume to see where is sag. Aka I need to shorten the sleeve strap at the front section. if fitted find once on but it sagged due to heat through the day.

A wild Dragonborn appears!

I had so much fun in costume at Con-G! And I'm getting so much better at enduring the heat, I'll definately be allowing for more time to wander around next time. I've uploaded some photos of myself to my photo album here on the site, and I'll get the pictures I took of others uploaded soon!

I find that if you keep your head cool your ok but even with costume with a basic clothes a mascot head is always the worst part of wearing a costume like that.

Con-G had been a lot of fun and I'm really glad I went.
I was Ice Prince Finn and Sam Winchester the whole weekend. I entered the masq but me and my partner didn't win; but it was fun anyway!!

I'm glad other people had fun too ouo
