I've been very busy for the last week studying, and i've just decided now to make a new post on my loot. Anime North must have been the best 3 days of the year for me ^0^ Gone to wonderland on the Tuesday, then Anime north during Friday Saturday and Sunday. Many cosplayers this year, and perhaps more otakus.
My weekend pass paid for all 3 days, cuz i preordered with friends. On the friday i went with my anime club from school, takin some of the newbies there for their very first time. We gave lots of tips to those who were planning on spending much, and try to bargain for a lower price. I saved about $100 just by bargaining ^0^ Saturday and Sunday were also amazing as i went with other friends. I didnt expect much or anything new, except for a few new voice actors and events which I only attended some. Nothing is really left to say except that it was better than last year.
Picture quality may be crap for some pics, i was using my cellphone camera >_<
A beautiful warm Friday Afternoon, probably about 20 degrees celcius with no chance of showers. a great way to start off the adventure!
The Anime Club at Anime North 2009 - group pic for the memories and for the mangazine 2009
I'm at front row-left ^0^
*Was FREEZING that night, as the temperature dropped to about 7 or 8 degrees celcius >_<*
The ice cream dinner may have also contributed to the cold feeling... but it is now a tradition for the us to do this after AN ^0^
Ky and Ozzy, and Mariya's hand
The one and only Storm Tropper at the convention ^0^
would have been nice to have a haruhi armband ^0^
Some of the few heavily modified model kits shown
some of the maids form the Maid café allowed others to take pictures after the café sessions.
The figures that I've bought at AN except for Haruka Amami at the back
Kotobukiya Harumi Kouno from To Heart 2 Another days was up for a good price of $30. She's been on my list for a while, and i had to grab her.
Took this pic late at nigh to waste some cellphone batteries.
A Sachiel figure that a found for like $3. I always go for cheap stuff :3
Found this Eva unit 01 for $10! vey cheap indeed yet very flimsy. not very poseable, details are great, i love the nice metallic purple finish, but i needed to add some wax to the bottom of the feet since it wont stand up properly, and the ankles dont have jonts >_<
Sorry Fuuko ^^;
My CC pillow! no more sleep-deprived nights ^^;
errr too bad its the same pic pic on the other side >_<
My weekend pass ^0^ preordering for $40 is definitely worth it!
this was all my loot for AN 09. Could not find Golden Darkness (Konjiki no Yami) from To Love-RU or Beat Blades Haruka >_<
I sleep with CC along with Harumi and Shirakawa-san on my headboard
Weird how BANDAI made the pillow o_0
LMAO my fav pic of AN! The Power Rangers arent anime, but they were surely awesome many moons ago!
