This will be my first time attending anime north, and I know the weather can get pretty warm in Toronto in late May. My question is: how warm is it at the con itself? Is the AC good? I plan on wearing a costume with layers I can easily take on and off for walking around outside, but I'd rather change my plans than suffer inside the convention center all weekend.

If I remember correctly, it does get pretty warm. I think they have the AC on but with many people creating heat with lots of people walking around and such. This is coming from someone who's not sensitive to heat.
Needless to say, have water and things like that on your person if you get too hot.
Regardless, hope you have fun :)

The main convention center? Hot AF in peak hours (though if it's hot outside, still usually better than that. Been through a few Heatstroke Norths here). The hotels are pretty good except for that glass entryway into the doubletree/delta/international plaza/whatever the hell they're calling it now. I always carry a fan, water, and if I have a packmule or can carry a large enough bag with my costume, a little collapsible umbrella for shade if I'm outside.

It's not too too hot, but can get uncomfortable. I find it's usually cooler inside with the ac on. Though I find the air gets stuffy and my ears feel plugged. The hotels nearby with contact stuff are good places to rest in the cool if needed.

It also largely depends on what the weather's turned out like. The hotter or more humid it is outside, the less relief you seem to find inside, especially since so many people retreat to the Congress Centre for the AC and end up heating the place up with so many bodies crammed in at once. The hotels are awesome for cooling off in though.

I always pray for the best possible weather, nice and cool with low humidity, but it rarely happens.

The north (is it north? The bigger, fancier one we only recently started getting to use. Masquerade and ceremonies are in it now) is REALLY nice and cold though. I REALLY appreciated it in that heatstroke year of 2016, PHEW.
