WOOOH!

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 29, 2011, 6:16 PM


Just got back from Armageddon Expo! OMG what a wonderful day :la:...though sadly there was not a single piece of Tiger and Bunny merchandise anywhere in the whole convention :iconcryforeverplz: But there were some wonderful cosplayers and I got tons of photos....also there was a liquor store that happily served me and :iconsasu-chuu: 10-12 free shots as testers and I ended up spending all my con money on delicious apple sour schnapps and I regret nothing :iconimseriousplz:. Yay for wondering around, feeling toasted and getting to take photos with muscular master chief cosplayers :iconhuarghplz:

*Edit* I almost forgot to mention? there was almost NOBODY in the artist section? it was so tiny ಠ_ಠ Armageddon is getting worse and worse for artists every-year?  I don't think I will ever be exhibiting there again, if you want to see me at cons I will only be at Overload since it is dedicated to just manga/anime. ( that is if there is an Overload next year which I am pretty sure there will be since its growing every year :la:)

Wow, compare to that I went to New York Comic-Con, and there were over 100,000 people there PER DAY during that weekend! .... Or maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit!

:la: sounds awesome! and that many shots free? hahaha

it's probly cause of the ridiculous cost to table! you'd have to be fenomenal to even break even with the stall fee/printing costs etc! did u break even last year?

You know that they charge like... $280 for a stall right? Most Kiwi artists can't afford that / got scared off by the last con / were at the Drawfest stall.

I paid something like $250 last year for my own table? T^T

I talked to the people who there today and they said it was even worst this year...

Was it? I was told that there was alot of traffic from the celebrity signings. Odd. And yeah, your spot was $250 + gst ($280 approx). They fucked that over big time too cause the seating was first in first served, and ~nai-XaIn even missed out on getting a seat she paid for on the first day. IT was SO BAD. This year HAD to be better.

if u really want to look for T&B stuffs (mostly will be doujinshis tho.... ^^;); u should come to tokyo & go to the 2nd day of the FuyuKomi (Winter Comic City), which is @ Dec 30th; there are around 1000 booths registered for T&B on that day :D (& also the 1st day @ Dec 29th if u interested in stuffs like Bleach or DN) :thumbsup:

T.T I can't afford to go to Japan again, it is so far, cost me over 4 grand a few years ago! But i will be forever jealous of all those people who can go there and buy all that stuff :iconcryforeverplz:

LOL eventho i actually staying in tokyo & i live not too far from the event side; its not easy to get those stuffs too, in a way...... :o
those events usually start at 10am - but one will need to arrive there at around 6-8am, or at 9am the latest, & start lining up infront of the event halls; since if u get there after 9am, u'll probably wont be able to get into the event hall till pass 12pm - which most of the stuffs u wanted might have sold out already by that time ^^;
i usually arrive there at 7.30am & will get inside the hall by 11am, so.... more than 3h of lining up outside the halls every time i went to events - & depends on the weather, it can be harsh too, for its outdoor before one able to get inside, like, mid summer is baking hot & winter will be freezing cold; but still, despite i always arrive there at 7.30am, there are already a VERY, & i mean, VERY VERY long line already |D;;;

lol, Glad you had a great time!

And it IS really sad that not a lot of the Tiger and Bunny merch has hit stateside yet... I heard the only places you can find them are at those huge cons like NYCC. (And its worse online because everything is always sold out and wayyyy expensive with shipping.)

Ugh and the Narutards... shivers
To be honest Naruto was pretty good at the beginning (in my opinion though :-|) but now it's turned into a pile of glop that's just repetitive

It's also because of Naruto that my other favorite mangas don't get as much attention at the US
