GAnime 2016 - Big Costumes All Weekend [late]

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 5, 2016, 3:57 PM


So I'm sadly late in posting my GAnime 2016 blog. WHOOPS!

Friday:

I picked up my friend Wynter (www.facebook.com/twistedsister…) at her house around 10am, and after getting her work schedule for the next week, and going to Tim Hortons we headed up. Making only one stop on the way in Perth.

We got to KassyPlay's around 1:30 or so, and met up with gracefulAggressor about an hour later after getting things sorted out at her house.

We were a bit late in getting over to the con. -Got there around 6pm-

Cosplay: Izayoi from Inuyasha

I wore my Izayoi cosplay with my friends. I was so happy for this. It was great getting to wear her alongside KassyPlay as Kagome, NeferCosplay as Sesshoumaru, Alexis-Rider as Inu no Taishou, and MelanieWolfrin as Inuyasha.

I spent most of Friday sitting in the gaming room. I actually didn't hate sitting in there like I thought I would, considering that I'm not really a gamer - at least I don't consider myself one. I did walk around a bit with the group to see where everything was. I also got myself and my friend Panini Cosplay signed up for the masquerade.

I got to meet up with CosplayCanada too. Was great to hang out with him again :) And another huge thank you to his mom for driving KassyPlay and Wynter back over to gracefulAggressor's (they wore skirts and exposing things, so walking back over in the cold was not an idea for them).

Saturday:

Cosplay: Fancy Navi from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Got there a little later than planned, which was luckily only half an hour later than I wanted, given that I couldn't put on all of Navi until I was at the con.

I spent most of the morning walking around in Navi with Panini as Zelda, Wynter as Rave Midna, KassyPlay as casual Saria, and gracefulAggressor as Link.

Surprisingly, the green room wasn't as cold as past years. Which was a nice change. I kinda stumbled over my words during the workmanship judging, and about ten minutes before I was to go on stage with Panini, the lights on the right side of my dress started to flicker. Luckily they didn't on stage. I think that this was one of my better performances.

After we left the green room though, and got over near the game room, the lights went out on the side that was flickering. I sat down, and lifted up the skirt of the dress to look and see what happened. One of the wires had snapped free of where it was in the battery pack and was sticking out. So Navi now needs repair there, but my dad will have to do that.

I switched to comfortable clothing. My fancy jeans, and the light blue bra i bought to use for raves. And switched from the fancy Navi wig to the short white one I've used for various things. I spent the rest of the night in the game room and the dance.

Sunday:

Cosplay: Venomania KAITO from VOCALOID [with both wigs]

Final day of the con. I sat through the award ceremony. I sadly didn't get anything for Navi with my friend as Zelda, but I'm very happy for everyone who got an award.

I spent half the day in the blonde curly wig, and then the other half in the regular KAITO wig. I got to wear KAITO alongside NeferCosplay as Gakupo and Wynter as Rin (Daughter of Evil version).

I did most of my shopping this day too. I wasn't really able to on Saturday, and the dealers room wasn't open on Friday. This was the first time I'd spent more than $40 in the dealers room at GAnime - as usually I'm stuck behind a table all weekend.

I got to take part in being in a Kuroshitsuji music video too! A group of Kuroshitsuji cosplayers were looking for people who were willing to dance in the background of their video, so KassyPlay, CosplayCanada and I took part in this :) It was so much fun!

We spent the end of the day in the game room, when we walked in Moskau started playing, and appropriately CosplayCanada was cosplaying USSR from Hetalia. So he started waving his flag in the background. When the dancers realized they thought it was great! XD

I even played Just Dance in KAITO. Which was hard AF since I was in a ballgown with a full petticoat.

All in all, I enjoyed GAnime a lot more this year with not being stuck behind a table. I was able to have fun and explore. Definitely returning next year. Again.

Canada
:star: About Me :star:

MDA started cosplaying in late 2007 and attending her first convention in 2008. She became interested in cosplay in 2006 when looking up pictures online and fell in love with the idea of dressing up as your favourite characters. Since she started cosplaying she has assembled and made over 100 costumes to date, including commissions for friends. When she started her mother made her costumes, and since 2011 she has been sewing her own, now competing at the Regional Artisan level in Masquerades.

Her costume list is ever-growing as she never runs out of ideas on what to make next, and is always working on a costume of some sort. She has cosplayed from numerous genres including anime, manga, video games, television, comics and original costumes. In her years of cosplay she's learned how to make her own patterns, beadwork, hand embroidery, armour crafting, and accessories. With her knowledge she's always willing to help a friend or fellow fan learn something new, even if it takes away from her schedule. As well she is an advocate for the No Means No movement and believes if you have a vision you can achieve your dreams.

Besides being a cosplayer MDA is a professional graphic designer & artist. She does photography on the side as a hobby, which made her the official convention photographer for FrostCon in Toronto. In addition she is the founder of the Quinte Halloween Cosplay Day and is the convention chair of Quinte Mini Con in Belleville. Oh and anything with blue is her absolute favourite, and she can't turn down a bit of chocolate.

Agreed, the program causes so many issues with my computer.. :( I don't know what else to use though to keep in contact with friends (I still hate FB, the plague that it is.. XD) I miss MSN, I still don't know why they removed it.

I'm glad you guys are excited though, I am too~! :D I've been playing the game so much lately, haha. It'll be a lot of fun hanging out! :D
