Quinte Mini Con 2015

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 17, 2015, 3:54 PM

So this past weekend was the third Quinte Mini Con! Gah I can't believe I've been running this for three years now, and have already started on planning next year - whoops!

But now it's time for a break after spending months and months working on it and getting everything ready.

But first, my journal about the weekend!

I started out prep on Friday, got some final things done, and went to pick up guests Dr Holocaust and :everage:. Along with EnviousHeart and CosplayCanada

This year we had Detailed-Illusion, Miss Messy Mia, simakai as cosplay guests, That Joker Guy and Erin Cossar made a return, and John Stocker returned this year as Canadian Guest of Honour. In addition to these loved people, we were able to bring Robert Axelrod, the voice of Lord Zedd from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Wizardmon and Armadillomon from Digimon to QMC. Plus had artist Karley Tufo Kauritsuo as our Artistic Guest of Honour. Fun fact, she's the one who created Quinn the mascot and won the first two art contests for the con!

I was up pretty late Friday night with gracefulAggressor doing some more things before Saturday morning. Including some Nostalgia Critic videos. When we did finally go to bed, we kinda collapsed into the one and ended up talking until we fell asleep at 5am. Oops.

Saturday morning came, and he, :cosplaycanada:, EnviousHeart and I loaded up the van, went to Tim Hortons for breakfast, and got to the venue the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre. The tables were all set up in the gymnasium and so all we had to do was find maintenance and get the keys that we needed. 7:15 we arrived, 7:30 the first artists and dealers started to arrive.

We got a few things fixed around (as some tables were in the wrong spot) and everyone got to their spots quickly.

Con got under way at about 10am, where the games room was the first thing to open.

We actually had an Opening Ceremonies this year!

There were no issues during the day. Masquerade went well, the panels all had attendees, and the Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament raised $330 for the Quinte Humaine Society just from the participants. There were a few prize donations too - one from one of our artists, my mom donated her Celtic Peace Sign, and from the convention itself a Street Fighter Character Select Mug & a free weekend pass to Quinte Mini Con 2016.

It was another late night, and got to have pizza with my friends for dinner. I love the local Dominos :heart: This time I saw sleep at 1am though xD And woke up at 7:30 for a shower.

I luckily got to have a proper breakfast Sunday. Thank you Comfort Inn for having a buffet breakfast free each morning.

Got over to the venue for 9:25, to find a few people already waiting outside. When I got the keys to the rooms (especially the gym) I was informed by the woman at the front desk that the one person who had a booth tried to get the key to the gym at 8am.... before I got there. I was not impressed. She didn't let him have it though as she was only going to give it to me or one of the other con staff members.

The day went pretty smoothly. I was impressed by how fast the 1st place weekend Slender prize went! At 11am it was already won!

I even took part in the Evil Laughter Contest. I laughed just for the fun of it. Holocaust and Joker were not expecting the loud high pitched laugh that came out of my mouth xD

The rest of the con went pretty smoothly, and we finished the con with the Closing Ceremonies.

All photos will be posted on the QMC Facebook page~!

: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.

I can't seem to catch you online. XD (Maybe because I don't come on enough...)

I told Marie already, but your Yuna has another guardian for AN if she wants on Sunday! :)

I'm also not on Skype very much anymore :(

xHylianKnightx Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014
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
