DS: Buttload of 24 wigs, mostly new...price ranging from $10-35 [15 Sep 2011|03:37pm]

I've mostly stopped cosplaying (only make
1-2 new costumes a year now) and decided I really don't need my entire
stash of wigs anymore.  Sadly, this post is still only a fraction of the
wigs I own (cause I'm a packrat and haven't convinced myself to part
with the rest yet).

( 24 wigs for sale...ranging from $10-$35US )

X-posted like mad.

Cosplay panelists wanted for Anime North! [15 Feb 2011|09:53pm]

We're looking for people to share knowledge, talk about various cosplay techniques, run demos, etc. Some past panels have been on wigs, cosplaying in a group, cosplaying on a budget, working with electronics, making props, performing onstage, posing for photography, dyeing fabric, and the list goes on. If you have expertise on a particular topic and would like to help run a panel, please sign up! If you know someone who would be perfect for a panel, direct them to the signup page!

To sign up and suggest panel topics, go to the panelist registration form (http://www.anpanels.com). If you lost your password from last year, just follow the directions there.

The full thread on panelist info is here.

Please note that not all panel suggestions will automatically become panels (if there's not enough people to run a panel, it gets dropped, but this usually happens fairly soon before the convention).

Moderated Membership [08 Jan 2011|11:58pm]

So, the spammers on LJ are getting obnoxious. As such, I'm switching the membership of this comm to moderated (meaning I'll approve applicants) to stem the tide. Should fix most if not all of the issue for us.

[08 Jan 2011|05:27pm]

Can we get couple more maintainers/moderators going on in here and set it to moderated posts to try and regulate things a bit better?

This community has been spammed at least 3 times in the last week and it's getting a bit out of control since we now have porn showing up.

While this community isn't officially run by Anime North, I'm sure it doesn't reflect well on the con to have these posts showing up as frequent as they are.

Please Help Con-G Bring w00tstock to Guelph/KW! [25 Sep 2010|08:33am]

[ mood | excited ]

Con-G has a chance to bring w00tstock to the Guelph/Kitchener-Waterloo area, but we need your help to do it!

To help out, simply "Like" our Facebook Page here!

What is w00tstock? Billed as "3 hours of geeks and music", it’s a fun-filled evening hosted by television host/special-effects artist Adam Savage ("MythBusters"), actor/author/blogger Wil Wheaton ("Star Trek: TNG", "Stand By Me") and music-comedy duo Paul & Storm (The Internet, Da Vinci’s Notebook) with additional guests based on location! These guys are awesome.

Songs, readings, comedy, short films, it’s the best parts of the huge US conventions all distilled into 3 hours.

Planning is in the early stages, and nothing is guaranteed, but you can help make a difference! We have been told that we need to show there are enough people who would attend a w00tstock performance held in Guelph/KW before planning can continue. Until now, they have only done performances in the USA, and all on the West Coast. We need to show them that it would be worth their while to come all the way to Canada! If we can show that at least 750-1000 people (the size of a US show) in the area want to attend, they will consider coming to Con-G!

If you would like to attend a w00tstock performance in Guelph/KW, please "Like" our Facebook Page to show your support, and pass the link on to anyone else you know that would attend!
If you do not have a Facebook account, please leave a comment on our blog indicating your support.

To learn more about w00tstock visit w00tstock.net.
To learn more about Con-G visit Con-G.com.

sf/anime flea market [15 Aug 2010|11:45am]

If you're anywhere near Toronto on Saturday September 11, you should definitely drop by the SF/ANIME FLEA MARKET, at the Toronto Reference Library in the Beaton Auditorium, 789 Yonge St, from 10am til 4pm!

Admission is FREE. I'll be there along with a room full of other people selling a lot of cool stuff - books, toys, games, magazines, comics, movie and TV ephemera, things you will be proud to own and display.

Help us clean our closets out and help the Merril Collection of the Toronto Public Library at the same time! (no relation.) For more information check out www.friendsofmerril.org

Looking for Pictures [04 Jun 2010|02:01am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

Hey gang! Hope you all had a great AN, sad to see it over for another year!

Like a dunce, I forgot to bring my camera this year so I was wondering if anyone could help me out by sharing some pictures with me. I am looking for specifically:

A) Pictures of me, I was dressed in a green/rainbow colourscheme including rainbow tail, green ears and green hair (similar to my icon *points*) if you could post them or email them to me (hawklion at hotmail dot com) that would be fantastic :D

B) Pictures of my "bitey bandanas" (white teeth on triangular bandanas, black was most popular choice of colour) as worn by you or your friends (with their permission to share the photos, of course) - I am looking for some decent shots to put on my website to showcase the bandanas, I would give you full credit on the picture page :)

[29 Apr 2010|09:27pm]

Last year at AN I bought a Vampire Knight day class uniform from the Dealer's Room. They only had one size and it didn't fit me, so I'm looking to sell it.

This is my CosCom marketplace ad. It includes the sizing, price and quality details. Since the pictures of it just hanging kind of suck, I can put it on my dressform for pictures tomorrow if you'd like a better idea of what it would look like while worn.

I'm hoping to sell it to someone in the Toronto/Maple/Woodbridge area, and I'd prefer to meet in person for payment/delivery. If you'd like to buy it, I can meet you before AN or at the con.

Need some help. [16 Apr 2010|03:08pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Hello my fellow Anime fans, I am in need of some costume help. I'm making an old school Astro Boy costume for my son (who is obsessed with it BTW) and I have everything I need except the hair. See the problem is my son is very blond and he's only 3 so I don't want to dye his hair, but I seem to remember seeing an Astro Boy like "wig" made of foam somewhere. For the life of me I can't remember where I saw it and my google-fu is sucking today.

Please help me out, my son will be so excited if I can get this for him. And for further incentive here is a cute picture of my son as Toon Link from last years AN.
