Cosplayers in Toronto/Southwestern Ontario for Anime North 2013?

Ahoy all!

I'm looking for a few friendly cosplayers who are planning to go to Anime North 2013, and who wouldn't mind being part of my research project. I'm a grad student researching cosplay and fan culture, and part of my project is participant observation - meaning (in this case) that I cosplay with other cosplayers and document the experience. I'd also really like to document the construction of costumes and props - partly for research, partly because I'm always looking for new methods myself~

If you are interested in participating in my research, then please drop me a line (either by private message, or reply to this thread) and we'll get in touch about meeting up and discussing the specifics of your involvement. (**I will assure you complete anonymity if you do not want your name associated with my project.)

If you don't want to be part of my research, but would like to meet up at Anime North and hang out (or just chat about cosplay, anime, and video games for kicks), that would be awesome too! ^_^

I forgot to put in my initial post that anyone who is going to AN 2013 can post here to organize get-togethers or group cosplays!

On that note, is anyone into doing an Arc Rise Fantasia group cosplay? I'm planning to be Adele (Real Diva version)~

Me! Been going to AN since 2007. Cosplaying Quorra and a gijinka of Twilight Sparkle for this year. I'm not the hugest social butterfly but I'll happily give some information or whatnot (and how I made things. Though some of Quorra's being kept a secret.)

I go to Anime North every year and I'd love to help out, if I can. For science! *puts on lab coat*
I love meeting new people at cons and I'm also a big gamer and sci-fi geek. Yay!
I plan on going as Malon from LoZ and, time allowing, there may be many plush Cuckoos involved >.<

Awesome! Thank you all so much~ ^_^

I'm a bit hyper, but I'll try to be mellow when I meet with y'all.

I know it may be a little early to ask this, but which day would you be free to meet? And (for those who are helping me with my project) would you be comfortable if I did a group interview (it would end up being more like a big conversation, and I would interject with questions every so often)? If not, that's totally fine - just let me know and we can meet for an interview separately.

If you'd like to chat before the con, let me know! I'm free to Skype or meet in person, if you're around Toronto or Southwestern Ontario~

@emm_gee - it sounds like some chums of mine are doing a Super Smash Bros. Brawl group. If you're interested in joining in, I'll send you more information. What anime/games/things are you interested in?

Possibly Attending

I might be attending AN this year depending on work and the dates and transportation. I will definitely be cosplaying if I do go however! I will probably be Mokona from the Clamp universe and Chii from Chobits though not too sure what else. I shall let you know if I am going as I would be down to help in this research project!
