some of these "Cosplays" are incredibly intricate and take months or even years to create.

Day 2 of the Anime North Convention, we made our annual get together at Hooters this year by means of a democratic vote, everyone ordered Wings, over 300 wings to our table alone!!

From Left to right: Terence, Myself, Nisthanth, Phoenix, Nick, Phillip, Jasmine, Tabitha, Joanna, Seth, and the camera man is Tom :)

The convention was a 3 day investment, that cost us $47 under group cost, one of the better years since the first one i attended 5 years ago.

The convention features a large dealer room, where people with passes can buy figures, books, and an assortment of other things. The local hotels also feature venues in association with the convention, and are often packed with cosplayers and panels of people.
