Costume Con 35 Room & Rides

Yeah here is the begging for rooms or rides topic.


I'm in Guelph with no car and none of my cosplay buddies that go to Costume-Con that needs a room or ride.... again.

Firstly I need a room to share.

I'll be in Guelph too (Up for a CostumeCon stitch-n'bitch sometime? I have months of hand beading to do!) but almost certainly taking GO up. I've hauled an absolutely enormous suitcase on board before... Hope everything fits in it this year! That said, haven't booked our room yet, I'm waiting on an overflow one with some kitchen amenities like a fridge, so depending on the prices I might be open to another roommate (it would be with myself and my boyfriend). We'd be staying Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

I'm not 100% sure of my schedule just yet as I'm getting out of school in September and looking for job but at the very least I need nights stay for Friday and Saturday. (I might have to work Monday )


I did like 2+ months of hand beading in 2014 so I know that pain, which was for Regina so she will be coming for Costume Con this year! I'm hand creating webbing for the dress which will be fun for costume con.

Well, looks like CostumeCon picked a really awful location for hotels, the convention one is really my only choice after all (other two in the area are just too far away with my all my restricting costumes). Bf and I are hoping for the possibility of car access but it probably wouldn't be worth it just so we don't have Go transfers and a huge hike to take for affordable food (reading reviews on that hotel, almost ALL of them complain that affordable restaurants aren't in short walking distance and never any fridges available in the rooms. Oh joy, a nice "Pay out the ass for sustenance or be miserable" con.... we can handle the fridge-less breakfasts that we bring along for every AN, but then it gets tough), since the hotel parking isn't free.
That said, we're still open to a roommate, as our finances have been pretty tight this year. And we may still decide that driving up is worth it (again, if we can borrow his folk's car for three-four days. Send me a PM if you're interested! Also, whereabouts in Guelph are you? We're a little ways east of downtown (can walk there in 20 minutes), near to Stevenson and Eramosa.
