FanExpo 2015

Bring your costumes and a bankroll because Toronto's own Comicon costs a bionic arm and a leg. Buy your tickets ahead of time because otherwise you have to south towards the lake, circle down what I believe is a missile silo, wait in line to purchase your ticket, then squeeze into the south building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
OMG the crowds and the ticket prices are out of the world - Saturday was $60, Sunday was $45. Wind through the aisles in the south, then head over to the north building for the celebrity signing areas. Cosplay wasn't all that popular as only a small percentage of the people attending the show dress up as their favourite anime, sci-fi, television, video game, comic book or cartoon characters. For cosplay I find that Anime North blows all the other shows away.
It would be nice if their was more room in the aisles so people could stop and check out the booths without blocking the flow of traffic. Maybe they figure if they hit people in the pocketbook more and more then many will stop coming and the crowd will be more manageable.
