What comes Next? (Toronto Trek related)

Basically, whose going? What do you plan to wear? and should you let me yell to try to assemble people for a photoshoot? ^-^ Better yet... are there going to be enough of us that I wont know everyone and have to yell?

I know the K-town crew + Xio are going, Minako, I think you were going... Sarcasm will be there... SMA, I heard whispers of you guys making an appearance.

Anyone else planning on helping prove Anime/costumes are valued at a general sci-fi con?

If you haven't read it... StillVisions did a con-report featuring the K-town people, and it's amusing... http://www.stillvisions.com/events/TT16/TT1.htm

I dunno what I'm going to wear...most of my anime costumes are kinda skimpy, and I learned two years ago that a skimpy costume is not the thing to wear at Toronto Trek (unless you want annoying wannabe Klingons leering at you and making rude comments)....

I might just wear some nifty stuff from my closet, or possibly Hyakurin.

You know where to find me Minako. I'll be online ^-^

I've got Count Cain planned solidly for Friday and someone from Naruto for Sunday, because my housemate wants to do it, and he's kind of our 'cosplay accessory' so now and then we have to do things he wants...
Still one more day to figure out tho, which may or may not be Magna Carta, depending on how up to it I feel...
So, once my income tax comes in, and bills get paid, I may splurge and buy some velvet to make my Ragarok Loki costume too...

I don't know if I'm going or not, but I'm considering. The possibility of tagging along w/ Stalker Target #1 might possibly be enough of a bribe in and of itself. XP Will fix up Embla for that con...don't think I'll have time enough for another costume. =\

I don't know about TT for now..
Because I'm pretty sure for the time its on I'm going to be in Vancouver <and if weren't for stupid Sars! Hong Kong!> If I DO end up going to TT which I don't think I will I probably bring Ryoma..

But I AM planning to go to CN as part of a GGX group <as one of two anjis> official design is a secret though xD And also as Ryoma Echizen.

How is TT anyway? Not bad? good? I can;'t stand star trek msotly..but is there other stuff?

It's all purpose science-fiction, just named badly so everyone thinks it's a Trek con.
However, as AN is now known as 'gravi-con' and 'FF-Con' I dub TT as 'buffy-con' because of all the frickin' Buffy/Angel crap going on.
That said, there's a lot of new Anime stuff happening this year, some really nice, inventive cosplay.

Not in my experience. TT is a pretty good con; it's been running for over 15 years and is fan-run so they're good to fans in general. The demographic is older than at Anime North; there aren't as many teenagers and there are more 40+ people.

Wish I had time to make something costume-wise for Trek, but I've gotta use all my cosplay energy on our Worldcon costumes. (So little time! Aagh!)

Was debating on going to either TT or AN because I couldn't afford to go to 3 cons this year... and with CN as tradition it was a battle of AN vs TT. And when James Masters cancelled and Kia gave me the great sales pitch for AN... it was set in stone.

Well tell me how the Buffy and Angel crap goes because I love that 'crap'.

Look for the little boy wandering aimlessly through the hallways whispering to his tennis racket and randomly throwing himself out of the way of klingons..oo;

Good those things scare me. I put on my friends white cap to test what I looked like with one on and GAWD I look like a boy..oo;..no wonder I never wear one normally xx;

Klingons are cool! But then again I'm a trekkie my self. If there would be onewould be one reason for me to go to TT it would be for Klingon Karaoke! Damn, that would be the funniest thing ever!

.... we all live in a yellow bird of prey, a yellow bird of prey, a yellow bird of prey ....

I've been a Trekkie for years, and I'm dying to experience a sci-fi con. I'd love to go to the Klingon Karaoke, chat with fellow fanatics, buy ST merchandizes which I now see less of than anime and manga stuff, and trade insult with Trek cosplayers.

Bloody Cardassians....

Unfortunately, AN has sapped me of my funds for the year. Lacking sufficient motivation for a summer job just to pay for this (if I did get one, I'd save the earnings anyways instead of spending it at a con), and not willing to part with something that might make me money on Ebay, I can't really go. I also have next year's cosplay to worry about, and it'll cost quite a bit. Paying tuition for summer classes doesn't help, either.
