Actually if I have the budget I'd like to upgrade my Merida cosplay to the Parks version of the dress and finally create my Pumpkin shade wig *_*

OMG the hotel blocks are selling out faster this time around. Is it too early to ask for roommates for my hotel room? XD

I always stay in the Courtyard Mariott. Sure it's a subway trip away but that way I can park my vehicle AT the hotel for a decent price where I can SEE it, and relax in a pool and hot tub. Not to mention the rooms are a good size and the hotel staff are pretty friendly. We're also around the corner from A LOT of restaurants.

All 4 of my costumes are planned out, and I should really only have to make one and repair another (fingers crossed). Fan Expo is my favourite con to go to, so I always plan/budget for it well in advance.

This is going to be my first year at Fan Expo, right now I only have plans for Sophia from The Walking Dead. How is the cosplay scene at Fan Expo might I ask? Like is it a big there? Are there a lot of anime costumes, or is it mostly comics and what not? Really the only convention I go to is Anime North so I'm not sure what to expect.

^ It's fairly big admittedly there are less cosplayers at FanExpo then Anime North but more then say the Comic Con San Siago or New York.

It draws more people that cosplay into other then just superheroes. Zombies and vampires, Steampunk, anime, cartoons, games, syfy, fantasy, and Whovians come out to this.

I use to only go to AN for years so this was the second con I picked up going to.

i need help deciding what to cosplay as! I'm from the ottawa area, and will only be going for the saturday unfortunately - I'm trying to convince my friends to go on sunday too...but we shall see, so far I'm not winning.

anyway these are the two I'm thinking of.

Daenerys from Game of Thrones in her Qarth Armour

or

Rochelle Goyle from Monster High

both are very different, i love Dany, from the books and the show, and i would make a dragon to go with her outfit...but I'm worried there will be a LOT of people dressed like her at fan expo.

on the other hand Rochelle is very much for little girls, and although i think she is pretty cool, and i would love to cosplay as her, she isn't as recognizable. i also don't have an attachment to her like i do Dany.

i would love some feedback, as to which you guys think is cooler. thats what it comes down to...which one people will like more.

Almost done my costume. Gonna try to work on a Person of Interest reference to add to it if I get the time.

I've never had a cosplay with prop weapons at FanExpo before. Anyone know if there'd be some sort of peace-bonding area I have to visit?

^All the years I've gone, they've never bother me about my props, but that's usually because I have the peace bond on them from the previous convention (I don't take them off unless the colour clashes with the weapon)

Anyway, my roomie and I booked our hotel the first day they came out, now the Hyatt is fully booked, so we're golden.

I still haven't gotten my ticket....

I need to rework my cosplay because of the beating it took at Anime North...

Anyway, Commander Shepard, all weekend long. Although I was debating Samantha Traynor for a day with her Sonic Toothbrush.

I would only pick one to do with but the MH costume always get asked about but cause they look unique even if you don't get recognized. lol

Just bought my tickets for Saturday and Sunday~!
Got the option to have them mailed to me because I've been hearing about the horrendous lines and I didn't want to go through that xD

It's been 5 years since I've been to Fan Ex! Despite the mixed feelings about this con I'm optimistic it'll be a nice return back ^^
