Off Topic / Who's into costuming?
« on: October 06, 2006, 11:34:20 PM »
Is anyone into costuming? I'm a new member and from what I've seen in some discussion threads and several topics it looks like nobody seems to be (except Sid with his cool looking SnakeEyes and StormShadow costumes). I have a few costumes left from the time I was doing amateur feature length action videos based on some of my self published comics influenced and inspired by my love for the G.I.Joe series of toys, comics and cartoons and I like to wear some of those costumes at conventions (like Toronto Trek and Anime North where a lot of people like to make and wear costumes inspired by their favorite characters from movies, TV shows, comics or other). I've done that from time to time just to show them off and have fun. I look at those conventions as big Halloween parties. However it seems I might be an odd ball in this group. Is there anybody else who made a costume of his or her favorite G.I.Joe character? I'm thinking of making a Kamakura costume sometime just for the heck of it. I even got enough fabric to make my young son a matching costume. I'm still toying with the idea.

Ontario / Does "Toys, toys, toys" still have 12" G.I.Jo

Could anyone tell me if the store "Toys, toys, toys" at Square One shopping centre in Mississauga still has a G.I.Joe section with 12 inch G.I.Joe action figures? I got a good deal there a few years ago on a WWII commemorative Marine Raider 12" G.I.Joe for $20 (regular price was $50...) and I would stop by again if they still have the big figures since me and my wife might come down to visit a friend in Mississauga this fall. If they don't have them anymore I won't bother stopping there since it's a bit out of the way from our friend's place. Could someone let me know? Thanks.

Yearly CanJoeCon Discussion / New member would like info about coming events
« on: September 30, 2006, 04:15:54 AM »
Hi, I'm a new member and been a Joe fan for a long time. Played with the big figures as a kid, got hooked again with the introduction of the G.I.Joe team back in 1982 with the new line of small figures, comics and cartoons that followed, etc... I'd like to know a little more about the previous and coming event because I'd be interested to attend but want to know more about it. I only saw some pictures about the wrestling video game and mention of that, card games and viewing of old G.I.Joe cartoons at the last event. Are pictures taken at the actual event available? I'd like to know what the place looked like to give me an idea of what to expect the next time. I have a son who's just about a year and a half so I might want to bring him along in the coming years so I need to know that this event is kid friendly or at least that there are no restriction to bringing your child along. Is there a dealers room? Are there activities like mascarade competitions, model/diorama/illustration competitions or exhibits for members or special ghests, panels on Joe related topics, that sort of thing? Please let me know. Thank you.
