Try not thinking about it as 'competing' with them in any sense. If you mean "masquerade oh noes!" then you should know that they CAN'T compete.
If it's just a "oh such and such is there they'll look so much better" just remember your hard work is just as hard as there's and their presence doesn't invalidate you or your work

Just remember Heros of Cosplay are not crashing this years FanExpo.

I think this is Yaya's 3rd or 4th time in Canada (3 time in the east coast anyway). I saw her very briefly walking at AN'10 one year in her Steampunk Madam DeVier dress. She never lists her Canadain appearance on her costume pages so it's hard to track where she's been up here.



Despite working on my parents patio on the weekends I'm finally getting back into the swing of working evening on my cosplay items. lol

Also had to place an order with We Love Colors because the original tights don't match the artwork and the gold dot clash a bit with the aqua ones. >_< When can i spot buy stuff for this cosplay.

BUT my last of my wig items came in. :3

Well, after lots of planning and re-planning, here's what I've got lined up: I'm going as Equius again, on either Friday or Saturday, staying outside the whole time with all the Homestucks for the annual meet and photoshoot, keeping an eye out for Dr. Holocaust, going to Johnny Rockets for dinner when the shoot ends, and coming back to the con area for a couple more hours to enjoy the evening and take pics before my ride arrives.

Trust me, it's way more awesome and fun than it sounds.

Thanks so much, that makes me feel so much better knowing that. I have heard horror stories about any of those heroes of cosplay people ruining the hell out of events and I thought NOOOOOOOOO

The show takes up a lot of time to film as they need to stage a number of shots for it.

I am also kinda relieved Fan expo will not be taken over by heroes of cosplay. Not sure if i'm scared YaYa Han will be there or excited. I have heard rumors she can be a really hater, and I know I would be devastated if she said something terrible about my cosplay. But at the same time I think she is very talented and would love to see her work in person.

As far as who I am bringing.
Friday - undecided, might not make it there in time to cosplay if I have to work (possibly work dress Cinderella or maybe even Mira Nova)
Saturday - Elsa with my IRL sister as Anna.
Sunday - Either Fem Hans or Daenerys in her Qarth dress

Personally love to see a panel with her. It's actually reading the listing for cosplayers panels attending getting me more motivative to finish Maddie.

There still might be a regular Q&A session, we'll have to find out when the schedule is released!

I feel like the pay DW panel is going to be the only panel with the three of them together, so that's why you have to pay. On the free side, Karen might be in a panel with Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker for a Guardians of the Galaxy group panel, and Matt could have a q&a by himself, or something like that. I'm still waffling on buying a ticket, but I'd really want to see all three of them together.

Almost done my Winter Soldier cosplay. My friend who's doing Merle Dixon is going to wear it on the same day as my WS so we can get a picture together, because both characters are missing an arm, she loved the idea.
