So this year was my first year at Otakuthon. I enjoyed the venue and having our hotel and china town across the street was great. The only other big con I've been to was Anime North which has also been fun but the event locations in Toronto are so far from each other (even with the shuttle), I liked how everything was in one building.
On another note I think I'll be taking a break from abroad cons, no AN or Otakuthon 2015 for me, I'm just gonna stick to Ottawa this year and work on some things and save some money.
I do think I'll be attending G-Anime and Ottawa Comic con, weither it'd be for the weekend or just the Saturday I haven't thought that far but I'll be limiting myself to one cosplay per con regardless.
G-Anime - Clover from 999
Ottawa Comic Con - Zelda from Skyward Sword
Things I would like to work on during this break:
- Get a car!
- Delve in to new hobbies - I obsess over pins but can't exactly afford the pin making equipment and I don't have enough drawings to integrate into pin format anyway. Instead I plan to do some practice plushies, see if that's something I would enjoy doing. and add more drawings to my collection too
- Work on some panels to present at conventions. I'm planning to put together a 999/VLR panel with a friend that also really enjoys the Zero Escape franchise, we're thinking of having a test panel at G-Anime, see how popular it could be and get some opinions from other folks on the series. Professor Layton and possibly a Fullmetal Alchemist one could also be in the works.
- Improve gameshows, for those who may have seen them I had 2 gameshows (FMA: Jeopardy and Disney Don't Forget the Lyrics) at AN (FMA returned at Otakuthon). I plan to vastly improve those for sure! Especially the Disney one.
That's my plans for next year
