Convention Tips


It’s that time of the year again: ANIME and COMIC convention season. I’ve put together the top ten things you should carry with you at a convention. You want to carry light, but bring essential items like a phone, phone charger, a makeup pack, wig care items and more.

Watch the full video to find out how cosplayers, videographers, photographers, geeks and congoers can be prepared for their next convention. Whether it’s Anime North or Colossalcon, you’ll need these items.


Generation Beauty Con Toronto took place in May. It was my first time there. I didn’t know what to expect.

I did expect brands to be there and free stuff. I thought the free stuff was one huge swag bag that we all left with.

I had no idea that this convention required us to line up throughout the con to get sample-sized and full-sized products at each brand’s booth.

It was tiring and did consist of a lot of standing. I highly recommend getting in line a few hours before the convention opens.

My friend and I did that and we were one of the first people to enter the convention.

As soon as we entered the convention area, we saw a huge sign in front of the escalators.
