Line up for registration
I arrived at Toronto Congress Centre around 10 am and saw a long line up for registration. It’s kinda expected since it’s Saturday and I had to park far away from the entrance because all the lots near the entrance were all occupied.
One of the entrances
I went straight to the dealer room again for some scouting and took picture of cosplayers from my favorite anime. I wandered around for an hour before I decided to leave since not many cosplayers that want to take some pictures of. I did find Saber and Rider cosplayer *jumping in joy*. Today is going to be a lucky day or so I thought.
From the dealer room, I looked around at the artist alley. There is one artist that really sparks my interest. Her characters all like cute and adorable. I couldn’t take my eyes off the prints for a while ^^;;. After a very very very long thinking, I bought 5 prints in total which cost me $28 and I asked her to sign all the prints ^___^. I believe her name is Holly ( not sure if it’s her real name or just a nickname). She is really talented but then again I might be bias since I like all the characters that she drew. Later on, I found out that she was the one who drew our Weekend Otaku pass. Check her website at www.kaze-hime.com or deviantart.com
Artist Alley is always crowded
Some prints that I bought from Holly except the bottom left one.
Most of you may not know but I am a FFXI gamer, I have been looking since yesterday for FFXI fan art but luck had not found me yet T.T. I got some nice ffxi fan art from last Anime North but I guess the ffxi artist that I was looking for didn’t come this year 😦
Halko Momoi concert is @ 1:30 and the gate will be opened at 12:30 pm so I had plenty of time to kill since it was only 11:30 and I didn’t think it would be a long line up. Check out Rin’s blog for coverage on Halko Momoi.
It turned out that I couldn’t make it to the concert since my friend, who lives in US, comes to visit on us on memorial day weekend so I went lunch with him and other friends at Sushi Eaton @ Eglinton East.
Sushi for lunch is FTW ^^
I went back to Toronto Congress centre for so more fun ^^. I went around the dealer room and artist alley just to see if there is anything that I like and hoping that I meet some cosplayers from my favorite anime. Outside TCC, it seemed that there were a lot of things going like free hugs and random dance party ^^
Dance Party right outside TCC.
From there, I went to Doubletree hotel to check out some anime showing. I watched death note episode 1 to 3. I already watched them before but it’s still as a good as ever 😀 and my leg started killing me so I needed to sit down and rest anyways.
I left TCC around 10:00 pm. I was hoping to stay longer and caught up with Baby Blue anime ie 18+ ie Hentai but I was too tired and barely awake. It would be nice if I have a room at one of the hotel ^^;;
