Anime North 2014

Alright. It is now the Wednesday after Anime North. So in light of that, I’ve decided to post abouty weekend at the convention.
On Friday, I didn’t get to the convention until around 8 which sucks, but I was able to go to the location from 9-10ish. I met up with a couple friends and we hung out for a bit, then I had supper and went back to the hotel. A few of my brother’s friend’s friends came over to the hotel and there was a social gathering and toward the end we played Cards Against Humanity which is always great fun, then they went back to wherever they came from and at 2:30 I went to sleep. (Since I had a school trip that day and we had to be at school for 8, I had been up since 6:30 and I was super tired)

Saturday morning, I wake up at 6:30 for no reason, no alarm, whatever. I got ready to go to the con and everyone else was up after and got ready and we went out for breakfast at the 401 Diner. If you haven’t been there, I strongly suggest it. It has great food, and their coffee doesn’t taste like crap like a lot of other restaurants.
Get to the con and it’s already hot at like 11 which is awful. I took some pictures and headed to the dealer room where I bought some prints, and around 12:30, I went back to the hotel to change my costume from Young Franziska von Karma to Rapunzel. Never wearing Rapunzel to a warm convention again. Suuuuper hot at 3pm. My day after that was pretty normal, changed back to Franziska and carried on with my day. Saturday night my brother, his friend and I were going to go to the 404’s late show but the line up was enormous, so instead we went to the Sheridan to see what games there were there, and around midnight we went back to the hotel.
Sunday comes around, and I mostly just wanted to take pictures and buy the Lucky Star outfit I saw Saturday so I did both and I had a really fun day. Got grilled cheese from the grilled cheese truck, which was good, but maybe not for a super hot day.
So, in short, I had spent a shorter time then AN then normal, it was hot, there were huge lines, and shoes I was wearing caused blisters on both feet, but needless to say, it was still the best weekend of the year.
See you at AN2015!
