copy pasted from anime evolution forums:
"J-Fest is a go!
Who: Anime Evolution presents...
Where: Douglas College (map forthcoming)
When: Saturday, January 23, 2010 (times forthcoming)
Why: Your pre-convention mini-convention. A small-scale event to help you prepare your cosplays, test-run your panels, or generally get pumped up for the 2010 convention season!
How (much): $10.00 CAD
What will be happening at -JFest?
* Pre-Reg for Anime Evolution and Tsukino-Con!
* Cosplay Tutorial Room!
* Video Programming! (more info coming soon)
Doesn't sound too bad to me, even though it might be hectic, plus it's a nice chance for at least a small group of us to meet up and chill out. I'll be wearing lolita since there's no way I'm going to plan a cosplay or something elaborate for just a one day event thing.
