FanExpo 2015 Experience and Gets!

So I just got back from an absolutely awesome con in Toronto, called FanExpo. For those of you who don't know FanExpo is absolutely huuuge, and has thousands of people who attend. It is split between areas of anime, horror, sci-fi, video gaming, and possibly something else I'm forgetting. This weekend I honestly had the time of my life xD

I went with my best friend, and these were our cosplay line ups for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Friday:

klk5.jpgklk1.jpgklk6.jpg
klk4.jpgklk3.jpgklk2.jpg

I was Fight Club Mako from Kill la Kill, and Sophia was pajama Ryuko

Saturday:





I was Tails from Sonic Boom, and Sophia was Amy

Sunday:



Photo-op day! So no cosplays, just leather pants :P

And here's a quick rundown of our time there! Feel free to skip ahead to the gets if you don't care, no one will know xD
So Friday, we met Yaya Han. She was the sweetest person, and such a talented cosplayer. I wanted to ask her how she has room for keeping all her cosplay organized and not in random places around her room/house, but I didn't get called on, haha. Sophia (the friend I was with) got called on though, so I guess that's chill... whatever... (xD)
We got a ton of recognition for our KLK cosplays, especially since this is a con where only 20-25% of people cosplay. Quite a few people took our pics, and we both had crop tops which I had a ton of fun wearing >w> After the con I also met up with aki199257 and ran around Toronto with her, which was a great experience and tons of fun <3
Saturday was EXTREMELY crowded, so we weren't in cosplay for long and we didn't go to any panels. We didn't get quite as much recognition as Friday, BUT we had so many little kids come up to us and ask for pics or be super amazed ;w; It was honestly the cutest thing. My wrench was confiscated for being metal so that sucked, but otherwise our cosplays were spot on if I do say so myself xD We got overheated and in pain quite quickly so we went back to the hotel and changed, and then came back as ourselves and danced in front of a small crowd. We picked Levan Polka as our song, to the dismay of the random little boy dancing next to us xD
Sunday we didn't go in cosplay, but it was just as stressful because we wanted to look perfect for our photo-ops. I was brushing my hair every 20 minutes, and hoping that my bangs were cooperating (they weren't ;A;). Sophia went to see the Weasely twins and I got up later to see my budd Hannibal, which was the coolest 30 seconds ever. And my picture actually was decent too, woo! Also I forgot to mention this earlier, but I am loving the exchange rate right now. I spent around 270 canadian dollars, but that's literally only 200 US. I got such good deals on everything I bought this way ._.

If you read that, congrats xD

Now onto the gets <3333



First off, photo prints of us (plus Hannibal, ahaha)



Next, Pokemon merch! I was under the impression that I didn't buy too many Pokemon things, but looking at this pile I was wrong 0_0
I got a beautiful print of my favorite Pokemon, the Lati's <3 Plus a small print of May (who I have a collection of), and bookmarks of Umbreon, Sylveon, Espeon, Glaceon, Leafeon, Vaporeon. They had prints but not bookmarks of Jolteon and Flareon for some reason. Then I got a charm of Treecko (my fav starter) and a cute sticker of Growlithe, plus an Espeon pin. They had this really cool machine that took two dollar canadian coins and popped out a little ball with two pokemon figures inside, so I got two of those too. The figures were two different Empoleon's in one, and Snorlax/Muk in the other xD And lastly I caved and bought the pokecenter Vulpix plush and a beanie Espeon. I couldn't help it ;w; I got three free pokemon cards with my purchase lol



Mako merch from KLK! I felt as though I wanted merch of myself lol. I got a print and pin of Fight Club Mako, and then I managed to get this limited edition for only 55 US. Again, loving that exchange rate. I thought I'd never be able to get this figure without paying a fortune ;w; I haven't set her up yet, but she is cuuuute <3



Free! merch xD I got two bookmarks (one came with the Makoto keychain), a Haru pin (<3), Haru and Sousuke charms, a Makoto keychain, and a random box tube figure. I got the secret version of Rin, which is awesome cause I have Haru at home ;)



Anndddd everything else. I got a Vocaloid Rin strap (my fav character) and Vocaloid stickers, three pins from Akatsuki no Yona (<3333), a pretty ring, an Amethyst sticker and keychain from Steven Universe, a Henry pin from Fire Emblem Awakening, and a Mikorin sticker from Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. Plus I snagged a Handsome Jack Pop figure from Borderlands, and two random boxes from Love Live, which gave me my favorite and least favorite characters xD Still though, I don't hate any of the Love Live girls. So I'm pretty okay with this lol

I think that just about sums it up! Thanks for reading <3 Have a pic of us making fools of ourselves:

Custom Plush Artist List

Here's a put together list of some custom artists I commissioned, with good and bad pointers ^^ I did not include all the customs I have, because there are quite a few where I don't know who made them. I also only picked out a few customs by each person in some cases, because I have a shitload of plushies and was too lazy to photograph them all xD
I listed all the plush I have by each artist however, so if you'd like more pics of a specific one let me know! <3
Also if you're interested in commissioning an amiguri plush, I have a separate list for those and can post it if you're interested.

Info under cutCollapse )

Collection Updates!

These are my side collections! If you see tape reflecting from the camera/light it's because a good number of these are hanging up :)
Here's a bit about my collecting style~ I've never really had side collections until recently. Before that, I'd buy basically whatever catches my eye. However, as of late I've purchased almost all of the official plush/figures I want, aside from some misc plush and grails. I love commissioning customs, so I figured I might as well choose specific Pokemon to commission since I obtained plush/figures of all my favorite Pokemon by this point. So these side collections are basically now being used to commission specific plush x3 I have way more "potential" side collections, for example I have 61 Pikachu's around, but since I don't really want more merch of him I'm not gonna post him here. I also don't collect these just to complete the collection, if that makes sense. The only Pokemon that I care about completing would be Furret plush and Sceptile plush, and I'm only missing one of each~

Anime Collection!!

anime collection

Here's a sneak peak at my anime collection, that pretty much makes up my closet xD
Click on the images if you want bigger pics~

two shelves

These are the two big main shelves! Not everything in my anime collection is anime, just an fyi lol
Top shelf is my Rozen Maiden figures and Harry Potter books/movies, along with Miku and Madoka~ Bottom shelf has a lot of Tokyo Mew Mew, Hetalia, and Vampire Knight, since those were my favorite shows when I got into anime and this was the first shelf I made. I still like all of these shows, but I'm not really into Hetalia and Vampire Knight anymore. Tokyo Mew Mew will always have a special place in my heart since it was my first anime <3 Of course there is a smidge of Vocaloid there too, Vocaloid ended up in almost all of my shelves xD
I've also got two Black Rock Shooter and two Sword Art Online nendoroids there, those are more recent.

shelf1shelf1.2

A few closeups~Collapse )

This is my second shelf! It's really a mix of my different stages of "I like this anime." Lots of Hetalia and Madoka Magica, plus of course Doctor Horrible, Jaime from Game Of Thrones, Buffy from BTVS, Mako from Kill la Kill, and the three Sword Art Online girls.

shelf4 shelf4(2)

This is the shelf above the previous one. It's probably one of my favorites, especially since my Pullip dolls are on it (with the exception of one that's on another shelf xD)
This is my only shelf with Fullmetal Alchemist stuff on it, but that's actually one of my favorite shows haha. Then there's some Doctor Who Stuff (I named the Dalek, he is now called Dalek Jo), some Vocaloid and Madoka Magica stuff, Jupiter from Sailor Moon, and Arya from Game of Thrones. Btw, if anyone can translate the Watamote strap I have hanging up, I'd love you forever XD
The flash on the camera made the dolls look really crappy, so if you want to see some more accurate pretty pics I have them here:Collapse )

shelf2.1shelf2.2

This is the shelf that is blocked by the wall, so you can't see it unless you go into the closet or stand at a different angle. It's my newest shelf, but I'm currently having another made to go above this.
Some of the Amnesia figures are blocked because of the camera angle, but you can usually see them perfectly. I love that show, it got me into the reverse harem genre which is now one 60% of what I watch xD
As you can see this shelf is mostly Madoka Magica and Vocaloid, with the exception of Chihiro from Dangan Ronpa, Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon, Captain John Hart from Torchwood, Kaname from Vampire Knight, all my Amnesia guys, Giroro from SGT Frog (I normally don't watch this kind of stuff, I swear) and Caren from Fate Stay Night (Haven't seen this show yet, oops...)
And then I've got Vincent and Break from Pandora Hearts hanging up along with Charlotte from Madoka Magica.

shelf5

And here's my newest shelf! It is also blocked by the wall, but it's a level higher than my colorful shelf. I'm gonna add more stuff to it eventually, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It has all my newest things beside my Pandora Hearts straps, figures, and keychain figures (which I still need to find a place for)~ The keychains are Tiki, Kjelle, and Laurent from Fire Emblem Awakening. The three nendoroids are Marissa from Touhou, Aoba from Dramatical Murder, and Shinku from Rozen Maiden. The flash on my camera is messing with the colors a bit but they're all legit xD Then I have my first and only figma, Ryuko from Kill la Kill and Shiki from Togainu no Chi (I had a slight yaoi phase this summer, but it's over now XD). The figures on my books are all from BTVS; I've got 1970's Spike, and two vampire/doppelganger Willow's. And lastly there's my Pullip doll who I named Janus c:

sanosuke

I also made mini shelves for a few figures/plush on the wall of my closet. The first box has Junko and Naegi from Dangan Ronpa plus Oz and Gilbert from Pandora Hearts. The tap is clear and not usually visible, but flash messed with it a bit :P Second box has Sanosuke from Hakuoki, and Rob from Game of Thrones~ Rob was a random box get btw, I was hoping for Dany or a wolf xD

vic

And last but not least, I have a few pics of Vic Mignogna posted on the other side of the wall! I get a pic for every year I see him at Roccon ^w^

-----

I've also got a few figures/plush on my desk and bed, but I'll edit this post with them later.

And that sums up pretty much all of it! I didn't include my flats, they're stored away at the moment. For anyone that is curious, these are my anime/non-anime things that are currently waiting to be displayed:

Two different Spike figures (BTVS)
Buffy figure (BTVS)
Spike doll-figure thing (BTVS)
Sharon figure (Pandora Hearts)
Alice figure (Pandora Hearts)
Oz figure (Pandora Hearts)
Gil figure (Pandora Hearts)

Favorite Cosplays

Not everything is listed here cause there was a time when I had braces xD But these are my favorite cosplays :D
