Hey,

lol I am actually from Canada, but I am currently living in Beijing, and will be for at least. I speak very little chinese and I can read like 2 words.

LOL so I was wondering a few things, hopfully someone can help me.

1. When/where are the conventions around Beijing? (i live the Chaoyang District)

2. Are there cosplay stores around here? or costume shops? If not who do i goto for making costumes?

I know at markets you can buy odds and ends and i like making costumes but i have no sewing machine here so it sorta cuts of my ability to do so. (i can still make gothic lolita accessories)

3. Are there any other cosplayers out there who speak english in the neighborhood looking to make friends and cosplay groups?

Really sorry for the long waiting!!
just caught my friend online...
I was told there would be tons of con in Beijing.
You may have big cons in the summer and winter
also, some median every mounth and every week for some mini cons.
The spot of cons were not fixed most of time.
but you may try the Haidian Theater, the Military Museum, and Zhongguanchun area.
hope this will be some help...
