1. What was the first event you went to after registering?

Headed to the Artist Alley

2. What was your favorite event?

Friday Night Skits (always my fave!)


3. Which cosplay you did got the most praise?


Funny enough, when I wasn't in full Tomoe (kamisama Kiss) costume. Apparently, random fox-boy in Japanese clothing is quite popular. lol.

I got the most praise on my tail being very soft. :P (P.S. Very sorry if it hit anyone in the artist alley or dealer's room -- it truly has a mind of its own).

4. Other then awesome what was the theme of your weekend?

Learning to talk with fangs -- I had a lisp the whole con

5. What was the best cosplay you saw?

There were so many, how do I pick! I forgot my camera so I didn't get to take any pics

6. What was the funniest cosplay you saw?

Hands down the Tim Hortons robot

7. What was the best cosplay group you saw?

Disney Princesses!

8. What was the most common cosplay you saw?

Adventure Time...but really nothing was over-whelming this year. I saw a lot of different stuff.

9. What good things did you walk away from AN with?

Plushie workshop went well. My public speaking can use a little work though hahaha. I hope everyone has as much fun as I did running it!!

10. What are the bad things you walked away from AN with?

Has nothing to do with Anime North but the double tree turned the power off on Sunday night. no one warned me so I was very scared. They let me book out and didn't charge me the day. I'm happy I live close enough that I could drive home that late at night.

secondly, I had 2 fake butterflies for my costume and both were killed by the wind

Lastly, it was FFRREEEEZZZIINNNGGG!!!!

11. Favorite panel?

I didn't go to any. I just kept getting side tracked

12. What did you walk away with in the dealers room?

Fox mask, furry paws, buttons! buttons! buttons!!!!

13. Any regrets?

Buying fake nails (then never wearing them).

14. Most LOL moment?

During the plushie workshop I asked someone to speak for me using the mic and he was supposed to say "there is a pattern for eggs to go with the kawaii toast online"...but it totally sounded like "AIDs" everytime he said it. Watching 135 people faces go blank was HILARIOUS! then seeing them finally understand he meant eggs was equally LOL. :P

15. What is your post AN goal?

Sleep, coffee...proper food.

1. What was the first event you went to after registering?
Going through weapons check with my friends on Thurs night - that counts as an event, right? lol. I really didn't attend much in terms of programming all weekend XD

2. What was your favorite event?
Masquerade - I wasn't in it, or watching it, but I had a great time being a wrangler in the greenroom.

3. Which of your cosplays got the most praise?
Imp Midna was definitely a hit, even though the costume is 5 years old now! People loved my sloth kigu too, but since I only wore it backstage, a lot fewer people saw it.

4. Other then awesome what was the theme of your weekend?
Being behind-the-scenes

5. What was the best cosplay you saw?
I was so pleased to be able to paw at Sarcasm Hime's Moondragon up close *_*
Also, Shinigami714 and HylianKnight's respective Twilight Princess costumes (being the Zelda-fan that I am).

6. What was the funniest cosplay you saw?
I was pretty amused by the Luigi with Bowser waeponry/armor as well.

7. What was the best cosplay group you saw?
I think my favourite was the Disney Princess group with Snow White, Ariel, and Belle

Homestuck was the only one that grabbed my attention - but since I was staffing the fashion show, I think I saw more lolita and kimono than any actual series!

9. What good things did you walk away from AN with?
A 4x6 of Shinigami714's Zant and my Midna from the Cosplay for a Cure booth, a letter from the Hyrule postman, and hall cosplay awards for both my Katamari Cousin and my Pepper Potts!
Also the awesome feeling of having contributed to Cosplay for a Cure.

10. What are the bad things you walked away from AN with?
Being really tired?

11. Favorite panel?
Didn't make it to any

12. What did you walk away with in the dealers room?
Didn't make it in there either

13. Any regrets?
Wish I'd had a chance to have a more through look around the AA/Comics Market - I would have liked to get a print/poster from one of my more recent fandoms. Also my footwear selections all day Saturday were very unwise.

14. Most LOL moment?
Friend while examining my 'Stark Pad': "Wait, you dremeled a font??? You can't dremel a font!!!"

15. What is your post AN goal?
Well, Colossal Con is in less than 2 weeks, so I have to unpack and get back to the sewing machine ASAP!

My Little Pony photoshoot. I really didn't go to much this year and I kinda regret it.

3. Which cosplay you did got the most praise?
Quorra, hands down! I couldn't go ten feet without a camera pointing at me or an "Oh my god Tron/Quorra/look at the lights!"

4. Other then awesome what was the theme of your weekend?
Playing supermodel. Photoshoots Friday and Saturday, being bombarded with cameras friday and saturday night, private shoot for Quorra, went to several more shoots, didn't really go to any non-shopping events....

5. What was the best cosplay you saw?
A lot.... I really can't name one.

6. What was the funniest cosplay you saw?
Tim Hortons knight!

7. What was the best cosplay group you saw?
The Hercules group!

8. What was the most common cosplay you saw?
A ton of Adventure Time, a lot of one final fantasy character (dunno who the character is, but I saw them everywhere), lots of DJ P0n3 cosplayers

9. What good things did you walk away from AN with?
Non-sunburned skin, a fantastic new wig for a future cosplay that I got very cheaply, the CONTACT INFO of some friends I'd met last year and never got proper numbers/emails for, a sexy new dress, and a feeling of a couple night's celebrity status.

10. What are the bad things you walked away from AN with?
Very sore left leg from posing in Quorra for hours and equally sore feet from three days in high heeled boots, an almost-empty wallet, and some pissery at the DoubleTree from their sunday power outage.

11. Favorite panel?
...I didn't make any. I only went to Totally Lame Anime for non-shopping or photoshoot events. The cold plus shoots was making me change my costumes multiple times a day and not want to go from one place to another. And SLOW dinner service....

12. What did you walk away with in the dealers room?
-Wig to use for Rainbow Dash
-A new dress from Plastik Wrap
-A lot of junk food
-Several buttons from the Artist Alley
-TRON playing cards
-An adorable t-shirt
-Pinkie Pie socks!
-Twilight Sparkle scarf from the Artist Alley
I THINK I bought something else but I don't remember... I'll edit it if I did.

13. Any regrets?
Not going to nearly as many events as I normally do in a con. And making my boyfriend packmule around so much. And not packing a warmer costume or at least a warmer sweater. Also wanted to, for the FOURTH year now, go to the outdoor rave but was both too cold and had too-sore feet.

14. Most LOL moment?
Sunday night when with friends in their room, having a blackout party thanks to the DT`s "scheduled power outage", practically making one of my friend's win the Munchkin game we were playing. Followed by "HERE, NOW YOU'LL WIN I WANNA GO TO BED" and everyone getting pissed off. And then being all stupid and drunk back in the room and listing off things I liked for ten minutes and doing Sokka's "Friendly mushroom!" at the window.

15. What is your post AN goal?
Recover from this strained muscle, get all my costumes washed and wigs cared for, and FINISH MY FAERY-FEST COSTUME OMG I AM SO BEHIND.

I didn't get to the Sherlock 18+ panel even after I promised my twin sister I'd go. Also, wearing my Princess Celestia cosplay. It didn't turn out as nice as I thought it would. I should have just worn Toph all weekend. That and not getting in a shoot with Droo.

14. Most LOL moment?
An Amon cosplayer snuck up behind me while I was dressed as Toph, and when my friends said "Toph, turn around" I was expecting a photo or something, so when I saw Amon I screamed and told him "YOU STAY AWAY FROM MY DAUGHTER~!"

Start work on my next version of Toph (Earth Kingdom, regular clothes). I want to make every outfit she wears, including police chief.
