  • BlazeDazzleDusk8ヶ月前#73200925Amazing loot, especially the keychains and the sea girl Miku figure. That convention looks packed!

    I really love Kayozia's keychain and designs. Here's a close up for one of the keychain I got from her:

    If you're interested, she has a online store

    Haha, the crowded picture is my favorite picture I like to show to people how crazy AX is >_<


    SebastianLover8ヶ月前#73200928What a cool experience! I think this is the most unique way to get into collecting I've ever seen. Hustling plastic gods is every weeb's dream job.

    Thanks! I think working at an anime shop would be an even bigger dream (๑✧◡✧๑)

    Scones8ヶ月前#73200521I would never be able to work at a convention. I can act a bit, so I can for sure act like an extrovert, but that wouldn’t work out for me unless I imagined I was playing a character, and that’s not...the best foundation for social interaction, haha.
    I’m highly confident around people but I don’t have that high energy, so I’d just be like “hey, and don’t even think about judging my introversion you bastard, welcome to AX.”
    Anyways, tracking bears in the winter sounds nice. If anything, bears lead to your collecting. You wouldn’t have been at Fan Fusion if not for the bears’ hibernating. They are essential to the spread of weeb culture. Record that in a field report. XD
    If I had the money, I’d probably get Memorial Dress Miku- I was on the fence about “do I even like her”, until I powered through my bad eyesight and noticed all the little accessories at the tops of her twintails, her green eyes, and ribbons in her hair. And then I realized that she was an elaborate masterpiece in a gorgeous dress with green-to-turquoise hair and thought “how did I not fall in love with this sooner, this is my ideal figure!”
    I really like your writing style, so I’m hoping that you’ll review her. Anyways, this was an enjoyable read, thanks for taking the time to write it. :)


    Years ago, when I volunteered, I was fresh out of high-school and I was tasked to sell artbooks, manga, and hentai at the convention and I was always too nervous wreck of just to say “hi there, do you have any questions about this or that?” I was more like “Hi welcome, I’m shy though so f off bro” actually I wanted to say that but I was too shy to even say that . I had quickly learn to mentally put on a “mask” just be confident, even if it’s temporary.

    Now that I’m older, I developed the f-it mentality and if I botch a sentence in front of someone, I’d be like “eh, I’m not going to see them again…. Probably”.

    Haha, I think it was just pure luck (or that the stars aligned perfectly) that allowed me to go to convention and I’ll definitely put that in my report XD

    I think that the Memorial Dress Miku as the figure to end all other Miku figures. She’s so elaborate and detailed I was just in awe. The colors and transition is just too good too! I also love the fact that each accessory is a hidden reference to the songs she sang and it’s a perfect nod of her past that propelled Miku into who she is today. I really hope you do get her one day though~!!!

    And many thanks, I always thought your writing style and creativity is literature level so coming from you means a lot to me (*^v^*)


    Heartlessxox18ヶ月前#73200909Do you enjoy hustling figures? I would love to try it out, would you recommend it? Also, really awesome article, I've not seen many behind the scenes at cons before

    I'm generally half-half about recommending it; it's sometimes fun and sometimes it sucks hard. You're generally on your feet for a good while and you sometimes want to explore the the convention but you are bound to the booth. The best part imo is meeting new people and talking to others about anime, manga, or games.

    If you want, you can always try to volunteer as a staff for your local anime conventions. Depending the demand and your background, you're generally assisting attendees, dealing with the stage or sound check for panels, or if you're really lucky you shadow the guest of honor and they are your guide/time manager.

    Also, they generally put you to work for like half (or even quarter) of the time so when your shift is done, you're free to explore to do whatever you want.

    Of course, your mile may vary, and it all depends on how good is the convention staff.

    Your TLDR is hilarious. Thanks for sharing your experience working at cons, seems kind of scary but fun (along with your normal job)! Hope you enjoy getting all your beautiful figures that you preordered this year!
