Report: Fanime 2007

Highlights Overall:
-jen_kat as a nearby table-buddy
-Getting hugs as Shanks
-New Kino poster
-Adorable commisions <3

Thursday:
Still had to paint Wataru's sheath, so I stayed up until about 1 getting that and a bunch of tiny things done. Ugh, so tiring. I did get my Pokémon 10th anniversary CD. XD I listened to it as I worked.

Friday:
Woke up at about 5:30, so I took a shower and made a sign for the Artist Alley table. We ended up heading up a little later than planned, but it turned out okay. We listened to my new Pokémon CD and a Penny Arcade podcast on the way. We arrived at the convention center at about 11:40, picked up our badges, and signed in at the Artist Alley. Then it took two trips to bring everything to the room. The harness for my Wataru sword broke. D= I was able to fix it that night with two rows of handstitching and generous slatherings of hot glue. I had to get changed into a costume, because it felt too strange to be in regular clothes at a con. I put on my Daisaku costume and joked a lot about the Robo x Daisaku pairing. I do love my Shota Shorts.

Nat had an interview and Alex and Amanda were not at the convention yet, so Nur and I headed to the dealer's room and I found some awesome figures. THEY HAD CYBORG 009 FIGURES. I bought all that I could get my hands on... which was only four. I'm only missing Smirnoff Albert and Jet. We decided to check out a Black Jack movie, but the schedule lied to us and there was no Black Jack movie. Alas. Nur and I joked more about Robo x Daisaku and people thought I was Light from Death Note. It turns out Light's outfit is just like Daisaku's... except for the Shota Shorts. I think more people would have asked if I was Light if I didn't have my Robo figure with me. Thank-you, Robo. =D

Alex and Amanda arrived, so we got their stuff in the room and hung out until it was time for the swap meet. I didn't find as many things I wanted as last year, but I was still able to get some cool things.

Saturday:
Nur and I headed to Kinokuniya at about 9. I bought waaay too much, but I'm really happy with what I got. Then we headed back to the convention to check on our table in the Artist Alley, which Alex, and Amanda, and Nat were manning. I ran up to the room to change into my Wataru costume. UGH. If I'm going to wear this for AX, I need to do a ton of work on it. I worked at the table for a bit, ran around the dealer's room for a bit, got snapped at by some power-hungry staff member for no good reason, broke my sword (Accidently!! And it's only the end of the handle), gave up, and got changed out of my costume. I changed back into Daisaku and worked more at the booth. I had to run around at 2 looking for the place to sign in for the Webcomics panel, but I finally found the place and everything worked out. I thought the panel went really well. We had the girls from Thunder and Lightning, David from Population: Us, and me on it. Thank-you to everyone who came and supported us! Alex and I hung around until the Funmation panel (very educational) and the Bandai Entertainment panel (I got an awesome Haruhi poster!).

Sunday:
Nur and I watched the booth for a while, then prowled the dealer's room. At 2 we headed to Yamaga-san's Gurren Lagaan panel, which was very awesome. Yamaga-san gave us little drills like Shimon/Simon's. I'm wearing mine right now. I can't wait to get my Shimon costume together!! At 4:30, I headed to the One Piece gathering (it was Shanks day for me), and had a really good time. I grabbed a spot in line for the masquarade and hung out with friends until the masq started. It was probably the best one I've ever been too. I had multiple friends in it, so I was really excited to see them perform. Congrats to the winners! You were spectacular!

Monday:
We packed our stuff and took it to the car, sold stuff at the table, and prowled the dealer's room once more. On the way home, Nat, Nur, and I stopped in Gilroy for some food. It was SO SCARY. Too many people!! ...and they were crazy, crazy people, too!

All in all, the con was very tiring but a lot of fun. I have many cosplay plans and ideas for next year. XD

Swag:
-Super Awesome Otogi Zoshi Shirt - Very few people know about this show, but it is so very awesome. For $5, I couldn't pass this up.
-ORLY Hat - I got this from the Gaia Online booth. It's such a cute hat, and the wings can be used at gloves!
-Kodocha v1,2,5,6, & 7 - all for $15 at the swap meet. Not bad. =3
-Cyborg 009 Figures - 009, 003 and 001, 005 and 006, 007 and 008... I want 002 and 004 to complete the set! T_T
-Overman King Gainer Sara Model - it was only $20, and O. K. Gainer needs more love... She's an awesome figure, I just wish they had a Gain or Gainer figure too. =(
-s-CRY-ed Figures- A Kazuma (WOOO, FINALLY!), and a Kanami (...that's her name, right?). The Kanami is the alt version... but whatever.
-FFIII Figures - Sooooo cute! I have a knight and a white mage. Originally, I had a black mage, but I traded her for the white mage with Alex.
-Tonainu (???) no Chi Figures - Also soooooo cute. I have no idea what this series is, but I couldn't resist the figures. I got Rin, Keisuke, Nano, and Arubitoro.
-Shirabansho (??) Figures - They had them at Mitsuwa, and they were really cool. I got a dragon guy and a tiger guy.
-Robot Figure - I got the one I wanted... the one by the mangaka of Tegami Bachi. So cool.
-Utawarerumono Figure - I only really wanted Hakuoro, but the one I got was cool too.
-Gundam Models - Because I really wanted to work on new models! I got AMX-003 Gaza C and RX-121-1 Gundam TR-1 Hazel Custom. They were only $7 each. XD
-To the Top 2 figure- Her name escapes me, but it's ummm... Aneki.... you know, the main character's aneki. She has a scarf and goggles.
-KINO POSTER - omg too sexy. It seems like I get a new Kino poster every year. I hope this continues.
-Free Haruhi Poster - I got this for attempting to answer a question. It's really big and really awesome.
-Ookiku Pencilboard- Too cute.
-Neuro Pencilboard- Too awesome.
-Amatsusuki blah blah something somethin maybe Pencilboard - Although I can't recall the title of the series, the board is really hot.
-Two commissions from our table neighbor - A pencil sketch of Jyuu-chan and a colored picture of my rp character Keiashi. <3

Well, I think that's all for now. =3
