I had a brief stint at Ottawa Comiccon 2014, here are the highlights.
I made it in just in time to run my Troubleshooting panel at 4pm with Detailed-Illusions. It was a packed room and I’m glad people were able to get some aching cosplay questions answered.
I then attended the Improve your way to better cosplay panel at 5pm with a friend I made at last year’s ComicCon.
At 6pm we went to Calssara’s Cosplay on Stage panel. Afterwards we briefly chatted with her and Elffi afterwards. I got my first ever cosplay print. I love her Saber. One of my favourite costumes of hers.
Calamity and I spent the rest of the evening wandering around the event then called it a night.
The plan was to arrive at 11am for Calssara and Elffi’s “Cosplay around the World” panel, but in reality it didn’t happen. My bus got stuck in con traffic for over a half-hour on a stretch of road that normally takes 2 minutes to drive down. The driver was nice enough to let us off to walk. Ten minutes later we made it to the venue after slipping down a hill and crossing a ditch. The venue was on lock down when I reached the door because of missing children so I spent another 10-20 minutes outside. I’m not complaining about the process, I’m very glad the children were found, I’m venting about the poor timing of it all.
In the end, I totally missed the panel. I proceeded to spent the rest of the day hanging out with Calamity by snaking through the packed and slow moving dealer’s room and looking for the few available spaces to sit down.
We wrapped up the day by visiting Calssara and Elffi’s table. Then we called it in early (sfter I bought candied apples) to free ourselves from our costumes and to have some good food off site.
