What’s Anime North you ask? Well, it’s a convention in Toronto that is very similar to things like Comic-Con and Fan Expo, but more geared towards the Japanese animation variety.
Yes, it’s super nerdy. Yes, that makes me a nerd. Yes, people dress up in cosplay 🙂
There are a lot of retailers selling official merchandise, but there are also many who are selling handmade, original pieces. From plush to swords, wigs to DVDs, posters to satchels, there’s so much to see!
I picked up a couple Pop! figures, a My-HiME boxset (one of my favourite shows), a scroll of Blue Exorcist, and some masks from Zelda! The masks were awesome and I’m going to get more next year, or just order them online!
