Anime North Dreams/Nightmares?

So it's official: Anime North nightmare season has started. Last night I dreamt I was in line to get my badge and I suddenly realized I hadn't finished my cosplays. Not even close! Not only that, but I'd left all the pieces at home and couldn't even get to them to work on at night. And yet everyone around me--my friends, my husband, even my daughter--had costumes on and I was the only one.

Awful!

Have you had any AN-theme dreams or nightmares yet? Don't tell me I'm the only one waking up in a cold sweat because my costumes aren't done.

I usually get them starting in March and they're always about not finishing my cosplay on time as well.

So far i've had only one dream of AN this year. and usually i get like 3-4 dreams before AN.

They usually follow the same pattern though with forgetting pieces of a cosplay for AN, or AN is in a different location.

I had a dream that the registration line was so long that by the time I got to the front, AN had ended. ):

I have forgotten parts of my cosplays in years past which is why I like to pack everything the night before or everything I can. ^_^

Once dreamed that I couldn't get there. All ready in costume but for some reason I couldn't walk there. (weird since I usually drive)

Had a dream not too long ago that I was dressed in my Rena cosplay but, Anime North took place in Napanee (where I live)! o_o I was getting help by my fiance getting the blood on my legs and such. There were people walking around Napanee with anime costumes on. It was weird. XD

I usually have dreams where I forgot my cosplay. Everyone was wearing one except me. I'm trying not to panic this year and get things done early, but still. I'm kind of worried about my boots this year. >_<

I won't have convention specific dreams persay, but in the few months before a con, when I'm in the midst of sewing, I'll have those sleepless nights where I will dream intensely of a particular piece of the costume, like the skirt, or my mind will be intensely focus on something arbitrary, such as the fabric or something - not a conventional nightmare but stressful enough. @_@;;;

No matter how many times I check, I keep checking that I have booked off the right times at work. That is my nightmare, that I booked the wrong days off and only find out the week of the con when it is to late:P

All my dreams involve Anime north being at different locations that kind of look like the doubletree but they aren't - its weird. Also another big one is money. I'm always on my way to the con freaking out because I didn't save any money for it.

I frequently have dreams that I show up to Anime North, and every single person is wearing the exact same cosplay except me, so everyone laughs at me cause I don't fit in. I think it bothers me because seeing the variety of different outfits is one of my favorite things about the con.

ha ha! my sister had a dream last night about not having her cosplay done! She said that she was rushing last minute to get it together before we left for the con. I told her it's a sign to get to work on her cosplay.
My nightmare was months ago. ^_^ I was getting lost in my hotel (sort of). But it kinda looked like a kids play area (with the tubes and slides), so I have a good reason for getting lost on the way to the atlus photoshoot. lol

I had a dream that I was wearing my Princess Daisy costume and some girl came up to me and threw red dye onto it! So then I turned around and punched her in the face and broke her nose. Then I got kicked out off the convention for life xD It was a pretty funny dream actually but if it happened in real life I think I would lose it haha
