My dream is to cosplay Sansa Stark from Game of Thrones with a House Stark group... but I dunno if that's reasonable.
My other Fan Expo plans are to finally finish my G-Dragon costume and to cosplay as Clawdeen Wolf from Monster High (maybe with a friend!).

Damnit, I'm going to need to work morning till night to afford all my con/costume plans this summer...

Hyatt is good, I've personally chose the Royal because I like the look of the place, but the Hyatt is a very clean designed rooms and space.


Any chase your wearing Clawdeen naomi_censored on the Friday? I'm planning to wear Venus on the Friday, thus why I need to book Thursday night for her makeup on the Friday morning.

Not sure if this has been posted yet but they're using the North Building and the South Building this year! They made a post about it on FB just an hour or so ago.

yup its been talked about over the last page or so... those who got the Holiday email knew about it in December

What's up now is that they are adding a... sports section? so far it seems like only things... more mature people... would be interested in (an old hockey player and Secretariat's jockey)... but i can't see the jocks meshing well with the nerds... I understand they'll have their own area but...

That awkward moment when they announce they're only using the new half of the building for just the sports section.

THREE EXTRA HALLS - 1 for Sports Show, and TWO for more of Fan Expo content you already know & love.

They are only taking over one 1/3 of the north build larger hall, level 300.



I was hoping the split up the dealers room to that area and have the guest and exposition area in the south building (or the north). That said we still have the full building to rome.

Oh dear, my apologies. Thank you for clearing that up. Guess I shouldn't muse about such things lest someone take it seriously.

Anyways, I was thinking of eating out a bit more than I did last year [normally i bring food to eat]. There are tons and tons of places to eat out around the convention, but would anyone like to share their favourites/recommendations?

Tim's next to the Royal York. lol

The smoothies inside FanExpo, The Spaghetti Factory one night, we ordered Pizza Pizza one year to hour room.

There is a lot of place to go to along the strip and at Union Station so there are plenty of food options. Union food however closes at 9pm it I remember correctly.

last year my friend and i really tried to not eat at franchises because we aren't from toronto so we didn't want to eat at places we could go to at home. so one day we went to Vegetarian Haven (though it is a bit of a walk from the centre), and a thai place right by our hostel. we did eat at tim's once though, because it's tim hortons. mostly we found places through trip advisor

Whelp the plans I had kinda went out the window earlier xD

I'm still hoping to do Zafina from Tekken and Jill from Resident Evil, but GI Joe seems to be pushed back. I don't mind postponing them for my friend since his costume is more pricy than mine (I just have pants, a top, and belt, and short wig and red shoes, him... balaclava, tact vest, sweatshirt, tact gloves, camo pants, holsters and combat boots)

Jill I kinda already have the fabric for :P And Zafina... well there's not much material so she shouldn't be too bad.

But I am hoping to have East Germany for a Hetalia group done. To go with USSR and Prussia (I just got into Hetalia, and I want a 1956 EG lieutenant uniform)

And the other... well Xemnas costumes are hot... very. And my friend melts in his.... badly. And I discovered how hot the Final Form coat can be at Con-G (only time I was comfortable in mine was outside). So may be swapping out Kingdom Hearts for Keepers. Have him be Demon Release Coreciellen and I'll play a victim for him (the character rips out people's hearts by shoving their hand through the person's chest and breaking ribs)

I'm not sure what else I'm bringing to Fan Expo this year. >_<

I wanted to do Saix but I don't want to make the trenchcoat again. lol I also have not found any seller online for the Org. XII coat that look good so I'd rather put it off again.

I want to finish Allen and work on my Costume Con cosplays over the summer, I don't want to add another costume to build.
