Wheeew~! One done ...a bunch left whut. Ever have that feeling when you know
all the correct text interpretation points, yet everything you write sounds horrifically lame? Yeah well that was me today >____<;; SOMETIMES okayoften I hate the german language. But! Day off tomorrow, only have english finals on thursday and woot friday's gonna be off again, too.
SO anyways! Comicon '06
at some meeting Hall at St.Louis Hospital last Sunday! (dunno why a hospital but yeah)
Met up w/ Ginger first and spent a while walking around the hospital grounds looking for said mystery meeting hall until we found Cosplayers! and thusly stalked them to great victory! And then we had to walk up 11 flights of stairs because the tiny lifts were overfilled but we prevailed! For great dojin-buying sake~
Place was packed
, random schmucks like us, cosplayers, cosplayer assistants etc all milling about or waiting in line. I was immediately sent in my first semi-squeeing fit seeing the door-standing person dressed up as Roxaaaas, which was a fitting prelude to the entering of the hall~THE HALL:
Heh! It can be safely said that the maaaajor major thai fandoms represented here dojinshi-wise were Deathnote and Fullmetal Alchemist, with Gundam Seed and Prince of Tennis making their presence felt at some booths, plus some girly series for the guys to perve over... Naruto was scattered around here and there and of course(??) Harry Potter was representin' too~ XDD KH2 seemed to be the newbie/dark horse on the block but! Mhhh looked good to me~ And of course it was all fandoms ever for the keychain-sections~
Some noticably awesome cosplayers were the gazillion Riku's (One had a micky mouse fuzzy hat on!!), the MGS military crew, some Ed Elrics, The Ouran Kokou Host Club(♥), Vincent Valentine... but my personal favorites were the Ishida/Ichigo duo, plus weapons! and the KH2 booth that were all dressed in these really nice looking Organization XIII cloaks~ ♥ THE SCHWAG:
Ginger and I mangaged to score a lovely haul, totally to about 2500 baht spent in total for both of us~
_KH2 DOJIN "TWILIGHT SHOW" FROM MIIST
:(over whom I squeed about in THIS
post...other series/artists art recs there too if you hadn't seen it yet!) ....THE COVER IS SO HOT AND IT IS SO FUNNNNY AND BEAUTIFUL AND I'm sorry I'm still stuck on that fact and ahahaha Xigbar and Demyx 'counseling' Axel on how to win/get Roxas back from Twilight Town** and there are references to the missing pictures(AXEL'S EXPRESSION HEE) and Roxas: Super hot ice cream presenter extraordinaire(the sea of fangirls!)!!.... Oh maaan! THE LOVE! I can't wait for the next installment~ Best amount of money I've ever spent on a dojinshi, it now ranks up higher in the glee of my heart than the smutty pretty FMA Roy/Ed dojin I found at WTC ♥ ♥~ I NEED MORE OF HER WORK
(Read it in the BTS the first time and ahahaha OOPS for cackling in public transport XDD)** Of course Demyx is like 'read him this sonnet of your feelings and all will be great-o *thumbs-up*' and Axel is all 's-shut-up It's embarrassing and DiZ has his cameras all over the place #^^#...Xigbar goes for the 'whisper in his ear' tactic and demonstrates on Axel who goes all BAD TOUCHING NOOO XIGBAR and ahahaha I am really bad at describing this ...just! ahh sorry lah D:
_KH2 Dearly Beloved- Sora: (By eguana) This one WON for sheer omg!effect with the design of the dojin- There was this metallic emboss of the title stylised heart, a slighty waxy? paper before the actual dojin and a free Oathkeeper bookmark
! BEST sword in KH ever ♥ And the story was adorable too, Roxas and Sora and Destiny Islands OT3 in the end yaaay :D
_PoT InuKai Dojin by RANS!!: Seriously, oh scoooore~ Rans is such a crazy awesome artist and I am extremely in a happy place for getting my paws on her stuff ♥
_HP Assorted Dojin by Happy Family!!(one of the most famous HP thai circles iirc): Finally had enough money this time to buy 'Garden'(Harry/Draco and the magic feelings flower that kinda brings them together) and some other Marauders dojin (The Marauders start a band! Little Red Riding Snape, chibi style--god I wish I bought that too so cuute!, James/Snape...okay they pretty Snape up like whoah but shuush it's Happy Family and oh shit! gorgeous art ♥)... and we got bookmarks as freebies too~!
_FMA Ling/Ed smut: ...okay I admit I only bought this cause the cover was extremely pretty and by the time my brain caught up with the rest of me I had already handed over my money XDD Trigger-happy at cons I am, yes :D
+ random keychains aaargh I regret not buying a Roxas or Axel one (got Sora instead)!ETC:
I wish there was more fun unique idea merchandise tho- like in November last year where this one booth sold Icha Icha Paradise formatted blank notebooks! But the tiny Deathnote replica keychains were quite ingenious too~
There should've been a booth selling some simple totebags though, we weren't the only ones lugging our loot around and there is potential cash to be made here! I mean, some cheap plain totes +Silk screen motives, maybe embellish a bit and WHAM! Bag! Money earned!
+ MBK= Advent Children DVD english Dub GET!
= SHAZ at that point of time? ECSTATIC ♥
