Shopping in Toronto! 

Aurora Celeste has prepared an awesome guide to the Queen Street shopping district in Toronto.  There are dozens of great fabric, bead, and yarn stores along this strip.  We'll be running a guided tour of the fabric district, but you may also want to visit on your own while you're in Toronto!

Part 1
Part 2
Fabric & Crafting Swap & Sell!

Don't forget to bring your unused fabric, trims, notions, yarn, and other costuming supplies for all new stuff!  (It's still de-stashing if you're replacing old stuff with new stuff, right?)  Fabric, buttons, zippers, trim, thread, thermoplastics, paints, sparkles, sewing machine feet, sewing tools, patterns, books, weird things, new things, old things, one thing, two things, bring them and have fun swapping & selling. Time TBA. 

We want your feedback on which tours you're interested in, and which days you'd prefer. Options:

Gerrard "Little India" Bazaar - Monday
Textile Museum & Bata Shoe Museum - Monday
Queen Street Fabric District - Tuesday or Thursday
Afternoon Tea (limited spots) - Tuesday

If you plan on attending any of these tours, please let us know!

Tours with not enough interest may be cancelled.

Where to eat?

The hotel has a brief list of some nearby restaurants on their website:

We will have a printed map with restaurant locations at the con.  There are more than 15 restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

Calling all ghouls and ghosts! The time for all things that go bump in the night is at hand. On the eve of Friday, April 25th, creatures of all sorts are invited to gather in hordes and share their tales and traditions in Ambrosia I & II from 7pm to 11pm. Kick up your claws, tighten your bandages, straighten those scales and enjoy an evening of friends, refreshments, music and miscreations at the Monster Club Social – only at Costume-Con 32.

Highlights of the evening:

• Social mixers & prizes
• Vampire hosts & hostesses
• Frighteningly fun finger foods*
• Bloody beverages*
• Fiendish photos
• Single Pattern Competition (8pm)
• Best costume awards
• Live performances
• Cash bar

Themed costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory. All types of costumes are welcome.

*While supplies last

Choosing Costume-Con's location
(How the Bid System Works)

For those new to Costume-Con, the con is run like Worldcon on a bid system; local groups must bid to host the con in their city.

At each Costume-Con, all attending and supporting members can vote for Site Selection of the CC three years from that date (for example, voting for the CC32 Site Selection took place at CC29).

This year we will be voting on the location for Costume-Con 35 in 2017. You can visit the CC34 table at the con for more information and for voting (they will be receiving and tabulating the votes).
Voting costs $10, but if the site you voted for wins the bid, that $10 counts towards your membership. 
We are missing email addresses for these people (or the address we have doesn't work).  If you know them, please have them contact us with their correct email address so they can get future updates from us!
