So Anime North is long over, and my video from that is still, well..... it's coming. Eventually. As will videos from my trip to Massachusetts and The Rusty Gear.
In the mean-time, I have a few things to share. On the subject of the Rusty Gear, the Boston Phoenix did some coverage of the event which I think was pretty fair, which you can read here: http://thephoenix.com/Boston/recroom/140920-lynn-lynn-city-of-adult-swim/
Other Rusty Gear business: several people at the presentations I did asked if I would make my powerpoints available for reference; so here they are!
**Note that I had to divide the foam one into two parts due to large file size. Also note that the mask instructions will have to be in a separate post since the photos all need to be re-done.
More locally, I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in a research project examining cosplay by Ryerson student Ashley Lotecki earlier this year. My work, in the form of Alice's blue dress, was even showcased as part of her presentation, which I think is really exciting. If you are interested in reading her thesis paper, it is available online here: http://digitalcommons.ryerson.ca/dissertations/806/
