So can we have a topic about Canadian cosplays and upcoming events and conventions?

Also can we not derail this into a Tom Savage topic please.

Vancouver Fan Expo this weekend, anyone going?

anyone heading to aikon in Winnipeg this July??

I know Tom Savage, I've known him for a while (not as a friend, but we recgognize each other). The other day I found his Tumblr and by lord. Everyone is missing shoes - it's more of an OCD thing than an 'ewww foot fetish!' thing. It's just... really distracting.......

That said, I'll be going to Animairtime and Hal-Con this year. Next year I plan to go to FanExpo in Toronto.

Any tips or feedback on FX? Is it worth it?

FanExpo is shitty IME. It's way more retail-oriented than other cons.

Anonymous 2013-04-17 06:12:21 No.6772873
is it really? How much is it to get in this year?

Anonymous 2013-04-17 06:15:57 No.6772884
I'll be there! It's actually my first convention, so I don't know what to expect.

Blair 2013-04-17 21:59:25 No.6774208

$115 +tax +shipping for weekend 4 day pass

Thursday = $25
Friday = $35
Saturday = $50
Sunday = $45

Expect insane line-ups, retard security, over-crowding EVERYWHERE, ridiculous autograph prices, and a shit show of fans since they added a sports secton. So the nerds can mingle with the jocks just like high school!
There's next-to-no programming. Only celeb Q&A's and a couple artist draw-offs.

It's really trying to become ComicCon North.
Not really for the fans, more for the media.

BellaFrankenstein 2013-04-17 22:11:30 No.6774235
I think they meant VANCOUVER FE, not Toronto.

Hoh boy, greetings fellow Atlantic Canadaian~

FX is corporate con bullshit, Anime North is much more worth the trip. Doing Animuritime for the first time this year, should be swell~

pic related, Halcon was a little disappointing, but nice to see how many people in the area care. Probably the worst lit con i've ever seen, with no real reason for people to go outside

Fan Expo is great for it's huge dealer's room, and really big names. If you like variety, then you'll probably enjoy it - especially if it's your first time . If you are going for gaming, in recent years they don't have too much in terms of video games but if you like boardgames there is a lot of free play.

A lot of the negative around FanExpo is how they price gouge, and their treatment of the fans. One year they oversold tickets, so they locked people out of the convention and had them line up outside for several hours.Some people were separated from their friends or family and some were stuck in the hot sun, and some people missed events they bought tickets for.

There also isn't a lot in terms of programming, mostly panels with guests. Personally for $115+ I want to spend my days doing more than floating around the dealers room continously. Unless you are going for some specific programming, I suggest saving money for the dealers room and only attending on one day.

Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo anyone?

Anonymous 2013-04-17 23:15:19 No.6774371
Aw man. I was hoping FX would be awesome since it's close to the BB airport (less of a walk) and that it's so big and stuff. I went to AN twice and they were kind of boring? Maybe it was who I was with. Maybe I'll try again, then.

This'll be my first hal-con, but my seventh Animaritime. After 7 years of practice, I'm finally ready and confident to try the masquerade!
I haven't been to the new Fredericton convention centre. I hope it's nice. The Delta wouldn't be so bad over and over if it was only slightly bigger. The images of the FCC look nice and glassy and roomy, so I'm ready!

Apparently, rooms from the Lord Beaverbrook across the street are already filled. Glad I got mine early...

Whatchu going as?

Blair 2013-04-18 19:00:11 No.6776468
Aside from the pricing, everything else I said about FanExpo still stands

Anonymous 2013-04-18 19:56:44 No.6776589

yes. now one of the two cons I go to regularly.

I'll probably be the asshole with the cello there.

I'm actually moving to Canada early July after I hit up Anime Expo. I was wondering what good cons are in Alberta?
I want to hit up Edmonton Expo and Calgary Expo.. But I might ditch one if someone tells me the con is shit.

Anonymous 2013-04-18 20:06:43 No.6776612

I though they were both amazing.

but I might not be the most fair. they're the only cons I get to go to in an entire year.
pretty much, no matter what happens, I'll still have fun at them, and think they're the funnest events ever.

Anonymous 2013-04-19 02:42:12 No.6777529
Yep! Going to it next weekend! Fourth one for me, I think.

Is there usually a meetup at Anime Revolution? I'd like to make some friends!

Anonymous 2013-04-19 04:08:17 No.6777732
It may still be awesome, I know people who do still love it and it's a staple con for many Torontonians.

For AN: it might be who you were with, or what events you attended. What is great about AN is that there is such a huge schedule with lots of panels and workshops and a variety of things to do in your downtime (tabletop gaming, maid cafe, wresting show). I find that it's one of the better cons for getting the most "bang for your buck", the other is (imo) Atomic Lollipop.

Edmonton Expo is still new (will be its 2nd year this year) so it's nothing like Calgary Expo but it's still a fun con to go to. I'm hoping they will have learned from some of their mistakes last year to make it better this year. Also if you like anime at all there is Otafest(calgary in may) and Animethon(edmonton in august) In my opinion Otafest is a lot better run and lots of fun. Hope this helps!

Just wondering how Anime Evolution is? Unable to go to CCEE anymore so would love to go to a BC con to make up for it!

I agree. AN is gonna be really good this year

Gonna try out AL. A lot of my raver friends are on the board of directors... Is it something that I have to be blitzed out of my skull for?

Anonymous 2013-04-19 16:00:03 No.6778556
AN is pretty much my go-to con here in Toronto and yeah, it really does depend on who you go with. I feel like I didn't really enjoy last year's because I had my mopey friend with me who was pretty much acting like a second shadow and just pissed me off the whole weekend. Bad friend I know, but I go to AN to relax and enjoy myself not to have an emotional vampire stuck to me for three days.

I'm also thinking about attending Atomic Lolipop for the first time this year. Probably only for one day as I don't think I'd have the funds for the whole thing that quick after AN.

Anonymous 2013-04-19 21:18:24 No.6779063
When is AL?

Anonymous 2013-04-19 22:11:18 No.6779116
Nope. I went with my friend and boyfriend, none of us do drugs and we ended up not drinking as much as planned but it was still fantastic.

Personal highlights:
- Lots of interactive events (sewing things, eating things, making things). Very few of them are high quality but they are fun and something interesting to do. Plus you get to keep the things you make.

- Fun, adult, late night events. Aside from the party outside there was a huge crowd for Dick or No Dick, Competitive Hentai Gaming and I had a lot of fun at Hentai Bingo.

- Bouncy Jousting.

- various 90s cartoons in one of the viewing rooms!

Don't expect much in terms of dealers room or cosplay. A lot of people were in more casual outfits, and the dealers room was just a small area. If you generally enjoy congoing, and you know people who are going or make friends easily then you'll have a good time.

Just came back from Fan Expo in Vancouver.
This year it was at the East Wing of the convention centre...and for the lineup for pre-reg was OUTSIDE the con...thank goddess it wasn't raining.
And same as last year the pre-reg line had a much longer wait than non-pre-reg...

Oh, and the hallways were really crowded.

Anime Evolution is making its offical comeback this year and it's at UBC...
Don't know how it's gonna be like, but hopefully the layouts of the panels aren't too far apart as in 08

Anonymous 2013-04-21 09:54:47 No.6782396
My enjoyment of Animethon sank like a rock the second I went to an actual con. Cosplay sucks, guests don't interest me and the panels are kinda boring. Then again, going from AX to Animethon might be a quaint experience.

Likely skipping it this year for Anime Revolution... which hopefully have more interesting guests than what they have right now.

dill 2013-04-21 15:47:27 No.6782648
Atomic Lollipop 2013 will be Aug 2-4

I agree, I found that AL has some of the most fun programming. I really enjoyed all of the free craft workshops, and all of the panels/game genuinely sounded fun

Anonymous 2013-04-21 16:28:39 No.6782694
Oh my, all I've ever experienced are Alberta cons, so I'm a little jelly.
Next year I do plan to attend Sakura-con, though. so hopefully that works out.

It's a shame that Animethon isn't putting in the effort they should be. We have so much potential for this city to have a great con, but the staff is just... terrible (at least, for the most part). This year is the first year that I'm really recognizing how much better Otafest is. I didn't want to admit it before, because I wanted to stand up for my original city of residence and believe it could get better, but it just won't.
i'll be impressed if they manage to change anyone's opinion this year with the added staff and whatnot, but I HIGHLY doubt it.

They've dug themselves into a deep hole.

Anonymous 2013-04-21 19:30:50 No.6783039
Not at all, I'd say APop is probably the most fun you'll have at a convention WITHOUT being blitzed.

The events/panels they have are great. Competitive Russian Roulette was so much fun last year
