There are a ton of Cosplayers in Victoria. In fact, I'm not sure if you heard about it yet, but there is an Anime Convention happening next weekend at UVic (University of Victoria) called Tsukino Con ... it is from Feb.22 - 24
I'm not from Victoria myself. I live up island about a 2 hour drive away from Victoria (in Parksville), but I will be attending Tsukino Con!
