Anime North 2011 Conference

28 May

Before today, I wasn’t really interested in going to the Anime North conference as I was told it’s just some people dressing like weirdos on the street. But I am glad I did tag along with our friend, even though just taking some pictures outside the Toronto Congress Center building. Not saying I’m too old, but I guess I need to be more open to the next generation. These people (most of them are teenagers) are fun to be with. Some costumes are to mimic characters in animation movies and comic books; some (for example, the “Record Player”) are made from their own creative minds. These people are not shy to be photographed, as long as you ask nicely first. I guess it makes them proud and they would have no problem being shown off on the web. The one thing you shouldn’t ask is, “Who are you?” or “What is your character?” That will make you sound ignorant and dumb. You are “supposed” to know before being in this crowd.

These are just a small portion of costumes I photographed at the conference. Although I can’t name most of the characters (Sorry!), I really enjoyed being there and taking pictures. It’s like having an early Halloween party.

    Haha, funny thing is, the “record player” is actually from The legend of Zelda. He’s an Organ grinder. :3
