Location: Main Street Unionville, Markham

http://www.unionvilleinfo.com/

Unionville is a nice, pretty little suburb in Markham, just above Toronto. But its charm is that its also a historic street.

Lots of the stores are styled to be old-fashioned on the outside, although the insides are usually posh stores with jewellery and clothes.

IMG_1096The place is also full of nice looking restaurants and delicious looking food.

IMG_1115According to my father, who is a wedding photographer, he takes photos here often, and we even saw an engagement photoshoot while we were out taking these photos, so I believe its not of the abnorm to be carrying around a bunch of cameras and crew here.

IMG_1141Also at the very end of the street (or the beginning since that’s where the station is) is this lovely pond and there is a little gazebo near it. Also those stairs on the right take you to a place called Dragon Bistro, which has Wing Wednesday where if you buy a lb of chicken wings you get a lb for free. I haven’t tried it but dang that sounds like a good deal to me.

IMG_1151This nice big area is usually where the wedding photos are taken. Its in the middle of the street and has a nice look.

IMG_1111Aaaand, here’s what I went to eat. Old Firehall Confectionary. THEY HAVE CAKE, CHOCOLATE, ICE CREAM, SLUSHIES, MORE ICE CREAM, CANDY POWDER, ICE CREAM CAKES, CANDY DISPENSERS, ICE CREAM CAKE COATED WITH ICE CREAM (not even kidding)

Also the stores all look really nice, and taking pictures in front of stores seems pretty okay, I mean, that engagement photoshoot was infront of some fancy clothing store so I don’t think we’ll get chased out.

There was also this really posh Indian restaurant. That fancy curry.

This is less of a review and more of me screaming about food ok.

Pros

  • Photoshoots are ok in this area
  • Lots of different backdrops to go through
  • LOTS OF FOOD LIKE JESUS
  • Washrooms
  • Pretty empty on a weekday

Cons

  • Tourists are probably around
  • Also weddings may be around too
  • THERE WERE SO MANY KIDS LIKE WAT

And now washed.

I don’t think a lot of process has been made, maybe I shouldn’t have gotten grey. Should have gotten black. I’ll pick up some more stuff next time o3ov

Cosplay Project: Protocol Omega

Eyeyey yoyoyo.
Here’s my next project.
Protocol Omega uniform from Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stone.

I only watched the beginning 5 sec of the video because I didn’t want to spoil myself until the subs are out. QAQ

Draft here.

image

I even got the material. OuO

The draft was actually kind of difficult because of the strange proportions everyone has in Inazuma. The costume shouldn’t be that hard.

Hopeful debut: Spring Cosplay Meet-up @ Kariya Park
