Tsubasacon Anyone going? - 09/26/10 07:56 AM

Next week i am attending my fist anime convention smile this is a new thing to me because where i live we don't normally get these kinds of things.
Its called Tsubasacon and it is still about a 2hr drive from were i live but me and my cousin are going because we couldn't pass up this chance lol.
It has all the classic anime convention related things happening and its going on for 3 days Fri-Sun Cosplay contest being on Saturday "cough,cough"

I just hope i don't run into a seller stand with model's and figurines of my favorite anime characters on the first day if i do i have a feeling i will go broke fast.
My cousin is obsessed with Hatsune Miku the chick from Vocaloid and he said if he see's a figurine of her it will be his lol.
I am taking my camera so i will be taking pics and posting them on here i guess.
So i will tell you guys how it was when i get back i only gotta wait one more week actually 6 days OMG anticipation is high so high i am having sleeping problems...

Oh in just 13hrs i will be on my way to Tsubasacon but first i got to work a 12hr shift then drive for about an hour or two.
Then i gotta wait until noon before the con starts.
Its going to be a rough first day no sleep for about a solid day lol.
But still i can't wait smile

I just got back from my first CON and i had one heck of a time.
For my area it had a fair amount of people there i think it was over 1500 or so.
And lots and lots of good Cosplay and some bad Cosplay as well i have tons of Photos of them i just need to upload them all and sort through them.
Before i went to the CON i owned zero figures and then this happened.

I now own.

Now i have all of those.

While i was there i got to be on a game show and it was me versus a family pair two on one.
It was a two out of three round game for the win i lost the first round then in the second round it was back and forth and i got the final square that would have let either of us win.
Then i entered a zin like mind frame and blew them out of the water in the final round for a perfect win.
Then i answered all the questions correct to win the bonus round.
As the champ i defended again against a sister pair i destroyed them but didn't ace the bonus round but i did win all kinds of random anime goodies.

My winnings,

You got quite a haul. Glad to hear you did well at the game show. You should start posting pics of your figure collection on the figure thread.
You've got good taste in figures BTW. Want to see and hear more about your experince.

The guy that was over the game shows is going to post it up on his Youtube channel once he gets it all edited.
lol i might have said a few cuss words when i couldn't get easy questions that i should of know no that i did no my brain just wasn't working...
I will post the link to it once he gets it up and running.

Anyway here is a handful of Cosplayer's from the CON these are the ones i liked or just thought were real nice people.

And this is a pic of the shopping area well half of it there was about 4 venders i didn't get in the shot

http://i123.photobucket.com/albums/o299/manga4micah/DSC00043.jpg

See the shop right in the middle of it there is a asian man and his hot asian wife that took most of my money i swear the guy was pimping out his wife on purpose.
I mean come on she had cat ears one and would always say thank you come again in a really seductive voice.
But that had nothing to do with why i spent over 400$ om his stand over the weekend he just had really nice shirts and figures...

They had a really good Hatsune Miku figure my cousin wanted but it was about 150$ so he didn't get it even though i was being a little devil on his shoulder telling him get it you know you want it wouldn't it look good on your shelf.

I was looking for three things and i didn't find them.
A really good Yuki Nagato figure not one of the chibi small ones but a full blown figure kinda like the Chun-Li,Morrigan and Cammy i got you know what i am talking about.

And a good Sakura and Juri figure from Street Fighter but didn't even see either of them at all in any way shape or form not even in a Cospaly which really surprised me cause there is almost always a Sakura cosplayer.

Nabari is not Yaoi, it is about modern Ninja.

I only watched the first disk of it, and quickly got kind of
bored with it.

Nice haul on the game show (wonder if any of the cons nearby
do this?)

I got kind of spoiled a bit, since I used to live near Seattle
and their convention Sakuracon is one of the biggest in the nation now. Now I live near Austin, and the local one is tiny...
Maybe someday I will go to the really big one up in Dallas...

I also get kind of carried away in the dealer room. I tend to
buy stuff that catches my eye (usually small stuff). I do like to get the "grab bags" sometimes just to get random stuff (sometimes they have good stuff in them).
