OMG Anime North was so amazing this year! I'm so glad that I got to go again! This was my sixth year in attendance~
BEST YEAR EVER!!!!!!!!!!
I woke up at 5am and got dressed into my Grell cosplay. I love that costume soooo much! I was picked up at 6:15am and the group headed the rest of the way to Toronto. We got to the con at 9:30.
I made one girl's day by being her favourite character and I had the chainsaw. I had an awesome shoot with *everage~ I can't wait to see the photos!
I met up with *CosplayCanada just before my shoot, where he was being hipster!Dad from Homestuck. I spent my entire day with him. It was pretty awesome when we went to Shannon's hotel room, because I ended up being part of their skit and it was so fun~ Bardo came out of hiding xD
Wandered the con some more, and I was so happy to see ~FrenchLily again
The Kuroshitsuji photoshoot was soooo amazing! Shannon did such a wonderful job putting it on! I had so much fun, I got to be my normal perverted self *cough* and everyone loved it~! :heart2:
I had quite the surprise at the shoot. A random Sebastian wearing cat ears ran at me and kissed me full on the lips! I was dazed and confused at first, and rather annoyed. I don't mind giving people kisses if they ASK. I shouted at them that they should have asked me first.
I was part of a Grell sandwich With William and Bardroy on either side of me. I was hugging Will, the amazing ~12Dee3, and *CosplayCanada came up behind me and put his arms around us. At first I thought he was just joining in the hug. Nope. Well, yes... but he did more xD All I could feel behind me was him thrusting. Really man? WHY MUST YOU HUMP GRELL?
Grell I guess just has a powerful effect on people. Everyone loved my Grell.
I had fun with the skit contest. I'd never gone on stage at Anime North before, so it was something new to me. But I was willing to try it We had Sebastian, Lizzy, Ciel, Madam Red, Ran Mao, Lau, Bardroy, and Grell.
You can see the video HERE.
*CosplayCanada switched back to being Dad from Homestuck for the panel. We went to the Homestuck Q & A Panel at 11pm Friday. OMG It was soo funny! I loved how it went. I think the best question of the panel was the one that *CosplayCanada asked. He stood up and asked "Son, why are you such a home wrecker? I give you a nice house, and you destroyed it!". I nearly peed myself laughing XD
We hung out in the lobby of the Double Tree for a while after the panel. Just derping and having a grand old time being weird. It was fun. 12:46 he called his mom to come get him... I stayed with him till she came to get him. I probably could have left him, but I don't like leaving people when they are waiting.

Was supposed to do a shoot with Naru Cosplay at 10, but didn't get the message from her that she had had to cancel.
I ended up walking around for a bit taking pictures. I went up to the Homestuck Panel at 11am, and was hoping *CosplayCanada would join me. Nope. I ended up leaving early anyway as my binding for Roxas was bugging me. It was painful.
So, I switched out of Roxas and changed into my Creeper cosplay. It was much more comfortable save for the boots. They were ok up until about 5pm. I did meet up with *CosplayCanada eventually, I'd spent some time with ~12Dee3 she helped me with Creeper a bit and we went to the Final Fantasy shoot.
I was surprised when I got there that *CosplayCanada was not Reno. Instead, he was Dave from Homestuck. Because he grew out his hair for Gavin.... Reno's wig didn't stay on his head Oh well, he's an awesome Dave!
Met up with ~Nekoyasha23 and ~Foreverflame and the girls to go do D.Gray-Man photos. I filmed a lot in that time period with them. And I did some photos for *CosplayCanada of his Dave cosplay
Dinner at 6 at Jack Astor's with Squirrel, ~SebastianxBocChan, *CosplayCanada, ~Raybras, *stephie-thearrancar, ~Zafie, and Timmy and two others. OMG there was so much random and hilariousness.
Dinner was actually at 7 though because there were no reservations and a one hour wait time. So we went up to *stephie-thearrancar's room and derped for a bit. I'm so happy that ~Raybras loved my friends ^^
I found that to be the best dinner at a con just because of the company. And *CosplayCanada broke *stephie-thearrancar
Plus, mine and *CosplayCanada's Lalonde was showing. We both got the Lil' Miss Cupcake mixed drink and got an extra shot of alcohol in it. OMG it was soooo yummy~! I got an extra shot of vodka and *CosplayCanada one of rum. GAH next time I go to Jack Astor's I'm having another one. They had whipped cream and sprinkles on it too! OMG SUCH A GIRLY DRINK BUT SO YUMMY!!!! *CosplayCanada WE GOTTA GET ANOTHER NEXT TIME WE GO!
After dinner we parted, and ~Raybras. *CosplayCanada and I went back to the Double Tree. ~Raybras and I brought *CosplayCanada up to our room with us and we hung out in the hotel room for a bit. We chatted and a bunch of other things. ~Raybras left around 10 or so to go watch the 404s, while I stayed in the room with *CosplayCanada. We went looking through stuff of what was going on at the Homestuck shoot that day... poor boy, he had a sad because Sollux x Dave is a thing.
We went downstairs after a bit and went to the Black Butler 18+ Panel. We met up with *stephie-thearrancar, ~SebastianxBocChan, Squirrel, ~cherryblossom72, Julian and others there. Part way through the panel I offered for Julian to sit in my lap. I literally said "Grell if you want to sit my lap is free." And sure enough he sat in my lap.
Which resulted in a very jealous Dave Strider. So Grell stretched his legs out into *CosplayCanada's lap. Boy was happy. OMG there was so much derp at the back of the panel.
After the panel the three of us plus Skye and her husband went up to my room and we hung out for a bit. I switched into Grell 'cause I had then been put into a Grell mood. And Julian being Grell didn't help.
We noticed though that *CosplayCanada was falling asleep so we plotted something. We went on either side of him, and at the same time kissed him on the cheek. It was a lenghty kiss on the cheek I might add. When we backed up, he flopped backward on my bed. HE SWOONED! I can't believe he swooned!
I'm sorry boy, just was NOT expecting that reaction!
After a while though we had to leave my room because my boyfriend and his friends came back to the room and they wanted to sleep. So we went up to Julian's room and played Cards Against Humanity.

Woke up at 8:30, which was later than I was expecting.... I was hoping for 7:30. Nope. Got up, got ready into Rydia, and finished packing my stuff up.
I got to the panel room at about 9:40, and they let me in early. Panel started at 10, and I'm so glad that Ayaka arrived on time! I didn't have to do the panel by myself! Yes, I hosted a panel at Anime North - Cosplay Organization, was at 10am in the Montreal Room of the DT.
I became excited especially when *YamanekoDemon arrived in the panel. And there being a God Tier Tavros and an Equius in the panel made me happy - my Homestuck OTP.
I went to the Random Video Game Characters shoot over at the Congress Centre where I gave *CosplayCanada the Creeper box head he'd bought me. He wanted to borrow it for the day.
I also made it into the dealer's room! And I went to the Final Fantasy shoot, but of course I was a co-host.
I got credit for doing a panel and a photoshoot, I got a free Germany button from Hetalia~!
As usual... I left the con at 3.... but I have quit the group for personal reasons.
