I'm surprised there hasn't been a topic for this yet! What did you nab at the con this year for awesome loot?

Image

It's probably a hard thing to see, but here's all the items:

1.) A "file" from someone passing out files for file sharing. That was hilarious, thanks! I got "porn". :P
2.) Gunpowder from a creeper cosplayer I took a photo of. That was extremely clever! Thanks!
3.) An I.O.U. for 256 Master Balls from the Missingno cosplayer. Also extremely clever! Thanks! XD
4.) Flower from an Aeris cosplayer with a basket. It got squished a bit in my backpack. :X
5.) Ellis' trucker hat from Left 4 Dead 2
6.) Lots of awesome commissions, represented by the blue folder I kept them all in. :)
7.) P.O.W. - Prisoners of War for NES
8.) Galaga for NES
9.) Fire 'N Ice for NES
10.) Poster of Ms. Fortune from Skullgirls
11.) T-Shirt of Cerebella from Skullgirls
12.) T-Shirt of a Minecraft creeper peeking out of a hole.
13.) Autograph on my Excel Saga box set from Nabeshin
14.) Mega Man plushie! (If anyone saw the Finn with Mega Man tattoos is seeing this now, this should be no surprise I got this. XD)
15.) E-Reader from a guy who was just gonna throw this out late Saturday night! Thanks dude!

I didn't get a whole lot either this year at Anime Boston.
Usually I leave completely broke due to all the swag I pick up, but 2013 just wasn't my year apparently.
However, I did get two wonderful small things that were well worth it!
Image
Reading Chocobo Plushie
(the last one I needed for my collection)
And a Zelda Heart Container Necklace!
Might not have spent more than 50 dollars this year, but at least now I have some ready for 2014!

I have a somewhat unhealthy thing for figures of any kind, so of course I had to drop hot dollars on a few.

It's funny because at my hall cosplay judging, I said I was the Charlie Brown of the Masque because I was a ghost made out of a bed sheet

I had an unusually good budget this year, so I went all out. (What you see below doesn't include gifts for friends.)

First, a rather eclectic assortment of figurines, pins, and random stuff. (Yeah...Squid Girl next to Mina Tepes of Dance in the Vampire Bund next to Cutey Honey, plus Panty and Stocking and Chuck...) The mug is Ikaros from Heaven's Lost Property, and the manga is a parody anthology of Evangelion, authorized by Gainax.

Image

Next, the new additions to the Blu-ray collection (Dusk Maiden of Amnesia and Mysterious Girlfriend X were advance copies):

Image

I also pre-reged for 2014; therefore, the saving-up has already begun...

I'll have to get some pictures taken of the loot.

Con-Swag:

Volumes 1-7 of HOTD (I am so stoked to own these, lol)
Volumes 1-5 of Soul Eater
A manga called "Doubt" (It's pretty good. I likes.)
SAO Wall Scroll
2x HOTD Wall Scrolls (Guhehe)
1 Miku Wall Scroll
1 Deadman Wonderland Wall Scroll.
65 Miku Card Sleeves.

Seriously, best expenditure of money ever. I only wish I had more to put down on some SAO figurines or something, haha.

I didn't have a lot of money to spend on swag (spent it all on parking) but I was able to pick up the complete series of XXXHolic.
I was hoping to buy the Little Sister on Board bumper sticker but they had sold out :(

I spent most of my money in AA for prints, but for actual stuff I picked up in the dealers room (sorry, no pictures):

Sailor Moon volumes 9-11 [Now just have to wait a month for vol. 12, then pick up the two short story volumes in the fall]
Hell Girl volumes 7-9 [In a 3-in-1 version, thereby completing the first series]

{For those curious, the prints were Kakashi [Naruto], Sailor Saturn [Sailor Moon], Zelda [The Legend of Zelda], Link & Dark Link [The Legend of Zelda], and Sheik [The Legend of Zelda] plus a chibi of Sailor Moon [Sailor Moon]}

EDIT: I completely forgot the Sailor Chibi Moon/Mini Moon puppet/topper/whatever that I got from a male Ranma from his duplicate grab bag (2 grab bags with identical items save for the videogame).

I got a bunch of My Little Pony/Game of Thrones/Supernatural art, a gorgeous Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash coin purse, a bunch of Hobbit/Avengers button from PopCult anime, Supernatural buttons, a whole bunch of Game of Thrones/MLP t-shirts, a "Just Saiyan" t-shirt, and a Ninth Doctor button.

Also this Thorin Oakenshield plushie.

Image

And this big squishy orange baby. <3

Image

I learned that if you dress as a big, burly man-dwarf and buy a bunch of squishy things and MLP art, it will in fact amuse many people.

(Excuse my meh cosplay in this photo. It was Sunday at the con and the name of the game was "eyeliner beard" and "wig that needs brushing out".)

My Anime Boston Con Swag. Everything pictured was gotten at AB, except the wig head, but the stand holding it onto the table was bought from Arda Wigs. I also consider my con book swag how I collect them and its usually and is covered in autographs.
A large amount of manga this year. I didn't buy that many pins or plushies this year and I avoided figures except the phone-strap ones.
