End of Year 2008

Well, I went down to EoY this year to see what the whole fuss is all about. Can’t say I’m impressed, but if i said i was disappointed I would be lying.

Anyways, those who went for that event as well were comrades Nanopulp, double, FarizAsuka, Gordon, Panther, Yumeno, Malzias, Hirito, Squee, chibihien, Tenma Amano, Blurmage, Yuki-to and Gottanime (List may be incomplete, let me know if you were left out).

When I got there, the first thing I did was look around the booths. The one that really got my attention was Figurakuen’s booth. Interestingly, their name card has their name in japanese written as フィギュア楽園, which is actually romanized as Figyua Rakuen. Fail romanization on the part of the group themselves or on the part of the company printing their name cards? I wouldn’t know. Anyways, some picture spam of what they have on display.

Technically not an artwork, but still very well done.

Lunch time. I take some shots of this little Grendizer gachapon which I bought for $2. I got it purely for display purposes, it’s the same reasoning why people spend absurd amounts of money for a xerox of a blob of paint that has been randomly thrown onto a piece of canvas.

    Wow.. HoiHoi-san is still awesome when I take a look at the picture.. It is a pity that I missed her since I arrived slightly late for the event..

    Well, at least the EMPIRE is happy to know that the mission was a success thanks to Stormtrooper Gordon.. ^^
