Con Swag 2018!

Post by Master of NERV » Wed Apr 04, 2018 9:56 pm

Once again, I'll start the swagage report for the con just past... ;)

Felt kinda odd this year--lots of money, but with no real drive to splurge. Still, a decent haul.

Anime and Manga: The (serial numbered) DVD box set is Risky Safety, 15 years out of print; used, but in excellent condition. Dallos is acknowledged by film historians as the first anime OVA ever (first episode released 1983)

Figurines:

Shiro, No Game, No Life
Image

Saitama, One Punch Man
Image

Pins: Two very different Shiros here...
Image

Mugs: The Shiro mug on right (Japanese import) comes with a ceramic lid

lots of manga, for starters. i got bakuman volumes 16-20 to complete the series, and assassination classroom volumes 14, 15, and 17-20. i wasn't able to find the final 21st volume of assclass, but i'll order it on amazon soon so that i can finally own the entire series. i also got a monokuma plushie and a life-sized mimikyu plushie.

i got a deku "cosplay" hoodie since the booth selling it discounted it on sunday. i also got two shirts, one aesthetic non-fandom one from an artist and another that says "peridot's limb enhancers". also bought multiple prints: two steven universe prints, one deku print, and an overwatch print. and i snagged an enamel pin of tsuyu from my hero academia.

...yeah i got a lot. but it's all worth it.

I got 2 of Charles Dunbar's chapbooks, "The Hell Of It" and "Taken By The Gods"; I also got a dragon necklace, a turtle keychain charm, and a scarf with a neko cuddling a turtle on it from Neko-jin Designs. I made sand art at PopCult Anime Con's table that was outside the Dealers Room, and I also got a cute sticker of a puppy in a teacup from another attendee that I met on the elevator at the hotel we both were staying at. :) :)

I'm unsure how to post pics on the forums here, otherwise I'd have posted the pics I took of everything I got.

I bought a box of slightly damaged Kimonos, Obi, and Haori for 50 bucks. At least 30lbs of fabric, in military-themed colors. Many of which I already have plans for ~ :twisted:
