The 2009 Anime North convention in Toronto’s Congress Center is a success this year. There were many different fans participating in this convention. We were fortunate enough to shoot the cosplayers this yearΒ  in Anime North.

For those of you that don’t know what Anime North is, here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Anime North is a non-profit, fan-run anime convention, held every year in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Its major events include a Masquerade, Dealer’s Room, Artist Alley, Guest of Honor presentations, Gaming (Video and RPG), Panel Discussions, Video Presentation, Contests, and Dances.

The most memorable cosplays we saw today were:

  • Baby Gaara from Naruto
  • Dan from Street Fighter
  • Nicholas D. Wolfwood from Trigun
  • Rei Ayanami from Neon Genesis Evangelion
  • Awesome Magna Carta Characters
  • Link from Zelda
  • Chii from Chobits
  • Sora from Kingdom Hearts
  • Cloud from Final fantasy 7 and Crisis Core
  • Lots of Lolita girls

Here are some of our shots of the cosplay at Toronto’s Anime North Convention:

    I believe the last pic, “Bunny with Guitar”, is of Suzumiya Haruhi! From the episode where she sings God Knows (Hirano Aya) on stage πŸ™‚

    Also, another heads up, the picture you have labeled as Laura Croft is actually Revy from Black Lagoon.

  3. 3 Simon

    Lara Croft is actually Revy from Black Lagoon.

    Great pictures!

    The guy posing with the Magna Carta girls is Ragna from BlazBlue, a new fighting game. πŸ™‚

    The Dan cosplayer was really fun. πŸ˜€

    You were a very good cosplay of Cloud, Ryan. In fact, your picture has the most views in my gallery. Congrats.

  7. 7 Chiro

    Good stuff! I went to Anime North in 2004. It was my first con, very small at the time but awesome. I have some pictures from it still if you folks want to post them on here…

  8. 8 BakaDays

    Very nice pictures you’ve taken! All mine came out blurry. 😦

    I’m very flattered to see my Rei Ayanami cosplay here, thanks so much! So many other gorgeous cosplays, I’ll have to favourite this :).

  10. wonderful.. i like cloud hair style

  11. 11 abia

    The picture tagged as Clair Redfield on Picasa is actually Jill valentine from Resident Evil 3.

  12. 12 Kairii

    I’m positive the bunny girl is Haruko from FLCL.

  13. 13 not_required

    How did it take 12 posts to identify Haruhi? A mistake like this could have caused the entire universe to be destroyed. Be more careful next time. πŸ˜›

  14. Hi there. ^^ I didn’t know that Lara was Revy.. =_= To me they are really different. I was wondering about the pic up there.. I was hoping to get the one he took of me ^^ Someone know where I’m supose to ask? I got it print, and its a mess.. 😦

  17. Love the blue…is that natural???

  18. 18 saikit

    I doubt it. The blue is from a temp. dye or a wig.

  19. Great photos. The cosplay at Anime North was great.

    Thanks for the link to my post. ^^
