Saturday at Anime North 2010 (part 1): Line Crusading

My story of Saturday, May 29, 2010 at Anime North will be seperated into 5 parts, just because. I will make a conclusion of my time at Anime North 2010 at the end of part 5. This will take 5 posts and 5 days to report. *insert evil laugh here*

Oh yeah, be sure to read the captions under the images (which will be in brackets like this is). You can view the full size of the images by clicking on them. Many of the images had very bad lighting, so I used photoshop to try to make them look more pleasing.

Madeline, Krystal, and I arrived at the back of Toronto Congress Centre around 11 am. There, we saw the long Saturday registration line stretched around the building. We decided not to wait 2 hours in line and proceeded to take pictures of cosplayers lined-up from the back of the line to the side entrance of the building instead. This activity of course, caused the line to move slowly. I noticed it made a few people frustrated too. Oh well. I now call this activity, line crusading!

Our first capture was a Cardcaptor Sakura cosplayer. There were many more Sakura cosplayers, but I didn't have the guts to take their pictures.

(Thank you pointing girl
for pointing at Cardcaptor Sakura in my angle.)

As we were following the line, we spotted a few Waldos, but couldn't tell who was the real Waldo. I captured one Waldo in cellphone-line action! After capturing Waldo, we proceeded to take pictures of people in and out of the line.

("Where's Waldo?")

(Could someone please tell me who this guy is playing as?)

(Characters that I'd probably use
in a RPG cosplay game.)

(Final Fantasy, yeah!)

(An Armless Spongebob! I was not expecting him.)

At one point in our line crusade, my father suggested we go to people's cars as they are preparing their cosplays. Great people and cosplays were captured from this idea, which will now be dubbed as Cosplayer's Car Seeking! We approached one car and got pictures of nice cosplay:

(Wind power.)

(He's baaack! Notice their car is on the right.)

(I give him kudos.)

(I give him kudos too!)

Line crusading was fun. Many people gave dirty looks, others funny or serene. Cosplayer's car seeking makes me nervous though.

Good Bye May

I've been busy with trying to find and make a life for myself this whole month of May. Although it hasn't actually ended yet, let's see what I've (not) accomplished this month:

1. Finished summer courses, but failed to achieve a grade over 5.0.
2. Gardening? Nope, dad did everything. I'm such a bum.
3. Catching up with friends (was fun but is the reason why I'm broke and partially why I didn't achieve the grade I wanted)
4. Save money? ARGH!
5. Get bicycle fixed: yes. I thank you daddy for being such a great guy!

So yeah. GPA... I'll focus more brain power on it. I'm also thinking about abandoning my cellphone for the next 2 years so that no one will ever bother me with my happy study time. I don't want to though, because my cellphone is also my MP3 player. Music will have to be a sacrifice I'll have to make! I'll sing instead.

How to Spot a Magical Boy/Girl

Magical Boys and Girls in their transformed appearance often have:

1. A cute outfit that makes them look either cool or cute. A mini skirt is a common article of clothing in a magical girl's outfit and a pair of shorts in a magical boy's outfit.

2. Sparkles on or around the being. There are rare cases where they have no sparkles and have an aura around them instead.

3. Colorful and/or cute hair. Their hairstyle are often abnormal (example: very long ponytails) and may involve hair accessories.

4. Some magical beings carry weapons around with them. Weapons include swords, staffs, and oddly shaped accessories in various sizes.

May 2010


I don't want to think of the future
because I know
it will be grim.
I know there will be nothing bright waiting for me
so I deperately search for things
that would make it brighter.
I make plans
but the agenda of others always change them.
I hate it!
I hate how I always have to change my plans!
I always make back-up plans
and more plans to back-up the back-ups
but it ticks me off
how I can easily be pressured
into what people want!
I hate it.

When I say what I feel,
I always end up feeling guilty.
When I ask about things I wonder,
I always feel stupid.
People laugh at me,
I know,
because I can hear them
and I can see them.
I have to say things that I don't actually feel
and things that I don't actually wonder
just to feel better.

I can never be me
unless I am with myself.
I do wonder often though,
maybe this me that I don't think is me
is actually me.

To the future me,
I hope you found happiness and yourself.
