Eeee~ Cannot wait for Mall Day~
I'm just kinda bummed it'll be casual-only, when the only wig I like that looks odd...well my friend is being the exact same character, so that won't work out. XD So I'll come up with casual!Alois and hopefully get a Claude spider done in time.
And if not...I could always go up to people and ask them (in an accent) "Have you seen my spider?!"...because people always want to help British children, riiiiight? *shot*

Just booked the hotel room for me and my friends for Aki-Con!

$45/night (divided by 3) and free breakfast buffet every morning~ We might just about break even. xD

Also, a place to put down the ridiculous giant bass whenever I want to. o:

I am so jealous of you people with cheap hotels at your cons. Three nights at Anime North in the closest hotels, split between me and my boyfriend, is $220-240; from $119 to $129, plus 13% HST tax, a night. Ugh.

It was only cheap because I work for a hotel and so I get a discount if I stay at the same brand. xD; Pretty nice perk, though.

The hotel we're staying at is normally $139/night with 15% tax.

Normally with or without the con discount? (The ones I mentioned, that's WITH the con discount. The hotel fare is nearly a third of my congoing cost for Anime North)

I feel like a fool. But if it makes Dave get here faster... SHIPU SHIPU NON-STOPPU.

The hotel is costing my friend and I £139 for four nights, which is apparently $228. So each, that's $114 between the two of us, which isn't bad considering it's Thursday-Monday. Prices on con accommodation are £47 ($77) a night and the rooms are all single, so we're saving a lot going elsewhere. And we're getting buses to the con and hopefully catching taxis back with people, so I have no complaints.

Sorted everything out and made notes on my phone about directions and such. 15 minutes walk to and from the station, 10 minutes to the bus station... sweet, we get to walk through a not-so-nice city in full cosplay every day. A+ SAFETY.

Normally without a con discount. Aki-Con isn't big enough to give deals on other hotels nearby. They do have a deal for the hotel the con is in, though, $107/night.

£139/$228 for four nights is really good. o: Good luck bussing back and forth; public transportation in cosplay is always interesting, even if relatively little happens.

Oh god, riding the bus in Toronto to Anime North this last year was AWFUL.
We were stuck right beside this crazy guy who reeked of pee and kept trying to hit on the cosplaying girls (or just generally be creepy and make innapropriate for a bus conversation), it was SO hot and the driver wouldn't turn on the AC... and it was CRAMMED. After a few stops from the subway station where most of the people got on, he couldn't fit anyone else on. I'm lucky I was by the door, actually. There was a periodic blast of fresh air every couple minutes. But I just about fell to the ground and yelled I'M FREE! I CAN BREATHE NOW! when we got off.

...and strangely enough, I hate riding buses in cosplay, but the subway's actually kind of fun.

That sounds really terrible. D: Was it a terribly long bus ride?

It's been a long time since I was on a bus in Toronto (I have some family there), I was unaware that they were equipped with air conditioning. o:
