Alright this needs to be addressed.

It's about pick up orders.

I still have this BlackGatomon plush since the person never contacted me or meet me at the spot even they agreed to it. I messaged them during the weekend but still nothing. This plush is not a easy one to sell due to the colour variation.

At least I have a potential buyer lined up but it might be sold for way less then the actual price.

I am very disappointed since I could of use that time to do others that were serious. I thought the person was since he kept asking me for updates.

This plush was not paid at all.

So from now on. For OC's as usual full payment before starting. Characters that I think might not sell well like that one is 50% deposit non refundable.

And for characters that sells really well will be 25% deposit non refundable.

This is second year I did this and never had a problem like that until now. Last year I had 3 last minute back ups but ended up selling them anyways.

Since Anime North is coming up super fast and I am staff there as OS kinda like security and also myself a cosplayer, I would like to point out a couple of important things. This is for everywhere. 


- When taking pictures, always ask the cosplayer first, if they say no. Respect that. 
- If the cosplayer is eating or something else leave them alone since there's a good chance they will say no but you can try later on when they look less busy.
- If a cosplayer is against the wall like taking off their mask or part of their costume, leave them be. They are ether taking a break or fixing something.
- If you are recording them, ask them and tell them. Also it's a good thing to tell them to make a couple of poses so they just don't stand there and wondering how long you will be filming them. It can make them uncomfortable. 
- If you taking a picture/video of a child. Always ask permission to the parent to take a picture/video and ask me if it's alright to post it online. If you don't and post it online, you can get in trouble.
- Do not follow/harass them. Even in video. If they take a quick glance at you and keep walking, that means they don't want to be in it and be left alone. 
- No weird angle shots that can make a cosplayer uncomfortable. If it happens that a photographer did that, please go see OS/Security so we can take care of it.
- Do not block hallways that are really busy while taking pictures like the hallway in the International Plaza at Anime North.
- Try to avoid to stop and take pictures there also. You will be told by staff to not do it since it's a high traffic area.

Try to follow the 6-2-1 rule: The convention hygiene guideline.
- 6 hours of sleep per night.
- 2 meals per day.
- 1 shower per day.
These numbers are lower limits and not intended as upper limits. The third part of the rule is to prevent con funk. 

You can do a list to make sure you don't forget anything. 



Just some general stuff. I can add a lot more but just wanted to make short and sweet :)



Also bring water especially if it's outside and really hot like Anime North and sunscreen.




And most important, be safe and have fun :)
Video is up of my panel about plush making at Ottawa Comic Con 2015 :)

Hi :)

I am known as Kitamon. I make custom plush and I collect figures especially Digimon and Pokemon. I have being doing custom plush for a good 5 years and started to attend conventions since 2010. I made my first costume that was Paildramon in 2011.

My favorite Digimon are Veemon digivolution especially ExVeemon, Paildramon and Imperialdramon (Fighter Mode) and also Salamon.

There is many more like Coronamon, Firamon, Appollomon, Arrestedramon, Gumdramon, Dorulumon, Gabumon digivolution.

I have being collecting Digimon with my little sister :iconsleipmon03: for over then 10 years.
