Red face Hello from a newbie cosplayer residing in Toronto, Canada~! 。◕‿◕。

Hey everyone! I thought I would finally introduce myself and start being active in the cosplay community seeing as I've been lurking for so long, why not be sociable and make some awesome friends while I'm at it?!
For starters... My name is Chelsi and I'm currently a 20 years old female residing in Toronto, Canada. I've been interested and have considered myself a cosplay enthusiast for quite some time (A good 7 or 8 years or so...) yet I've never gotten around to jumping into the cosplay community because I feel a bit intimidated by all the amazing cosplayers and how unexperienced I am at cosplay. Although, I suppose cosplayers in general always need to start somewhere so even though it's a bit late, this is my start! ヽ(;▽;)ノ

I'm known to have a slight obsession with pandas, gaming(More so for the good old survival horror franchise but I do have a gigantic weak spot of RPG's and classics such as the Legend of Zelda series), cosplay and I generally enjoy spending my time drinking excess amounts of coffee, food, and internet browsing.

Last year I attended Anime North for the very first time and since then I've been set on going this year and cosplaying for the first time. Those who are unaware, Anime North is held on the 24th-26th of May in Toronto. Although I only attended the Friday and Saturday last year, I'm attending the full 3 days and look forward to seeing everyone there this year since last year I was so incredibly inspired by all the inedible cosplayers and costumes!

Although I've had a previous Cosplay.com account that I never really used I'm still pretty much new so I'm still in the process of exploring all the nooks and crannies of this site. Tips and questions are more than welcomed so feel more than free to converse with me. :>

So, it's nice to meet you all!
Let's be friends!

Hey guys!!! NICE TO MEET YOU AND THANK YOOOOU~ I'll be sure to keep an eye out for FloweringAngel & Rhapsados this year at AN. :> I hope this years weather will be as great as it was last year, LOL. The cosplays were so amazing last year that I could not go this year and not cosplay.

@animazn; Lucky you!! Are you in the Vancouver area? I've always wanted to go there not to mention Anime Revolution seems like it's a blast. /envyyy

@danielvutran; Nice to know another person from Cali! I actually know quite a few people from Cali who've moved up here to Canada in the area I live.

Toronto's a great place to be in the con scene. You've got Anime North, Ad Astra, some new ones like SFContario, whatever events TCON throws together like Reversed Polarity, and if you like commercial cons there's Fan Expo and ComicCon. If you can get out of the city there's also stuff like GenreCon and ConBravo within an hour's drive or so.

I've never been to Anime North, my husband and I share a birthday and it's that weekend. XD

Hey another Torontonian! Welcome. Anime North was my first con ever (a long time ago) as well. I might go again this year, I'm on the fence about it.

AN has a bunch of cosplay panels iirc. So you can go learn something new and improve your skills while you're there.

And guys, don't forget Costume Con is coming to Toronto in 2014!

I see you also plan to go to APop! I will definitely be there this year. Maybe run a button press workshop again.

Nice to meet you PandaDelight. Panda's, panda's, panda's are my favourite too. Inteligent/cuddly/playful mixed into one for a perfect combo. When MOP came out all my toons races were changed into panda's.

Cheers
