Conventions around Toronto

I've always thought: wouldn't it be nice if there was an anime convention every month around the Greater Toronto Area? Here is a list of all usual-running conventions in and near the GTA in order of months.

DTAC 2010

I have examinations during the following 3 weeks. I guess I'll have to miss another anime-related convention.

Things to do at an Anime Convention (part 2)

  1. Make all cosplayers give two thumbs up.

  2. Get cosplayers to flip their hair in an elegant manner.

  3. Use a pok├ęball and catch as many cosplayers as you can by throwing the ball somewhere near them (not at them).

  4. Sing a song with convention people.

  5. If there is an elevator, set up a table, a few chairs, and play a game of poker in there.

  6. Pick an anime/manga character and try to take a picture of all cosplayers cosplaying that character in the convention.
