Yesterday, I went to the London Expo. Han style. I thought it’d be easier to get around the stalls n stuff. Carrying lotsa bags of loot never helps with that though… Not as bad as last time. Only 3 bags to carry back. Biggest thing was the gunpla box lol. Twice the size if not bigger than the 1/144th scale boxes… Onto some piccies.

After an unfortunately tripping incident(near one of the numerous building sites around campus, I tripped on a very random coil of wire in the middle of the road….) I really needed a boost like this. I got back and found I got a parcel.
It was one of 3 things. My zazzle tshirt had arrived, my Nono-chan had arrived, or my ToHeart 2 uniform had come. I thought it was too early for the order from China. It was only shipped on the 1st. To my joy though, it was the uniform!!! In its custom made glory!!
Doesn’t it look awesome???? The material feels like good quality, and it fits!! Which is the MOST important thing. Thank god I got my measurements right lol Otherwise it could have been BAD….. It needs a bigger bow, it would be a fine size for a shorter girl. But since i’m so tall the same size bow looks weird… so I’ll go on the hunt for some material later on. I’m so happy! I can’t believe I have it!! It was only shipped on the 1st! 8 days and I have it!! :woop:
Now pictures of me in it… untill I get long white socks, there will be none. I should be wearing it to the ‘Otaku night at the SU if I have the guts…. lol….
Now….. bad news… I forgot my camera…. didnt realise before I was on the train… just as it was about to leave…. you don’t now how gutted I was… I could have got a pic of the Fonz… of Gareth David Lloyd…. :sob: I wish I brought it….. damn…. nevermind though. My camera is pretty awful anyways. I have the memories, they are good enough for me. Not for you lot obviously. But theres videos and pics on the official site I’m sure. Content-wise, Memorabilia is much-much more varied than Expo. More actual scifi and comics rather than raging Naruto fans. And its on a larger scale. Bigger venue. And food INSIDE the venue too! Hot food and hot drinks and snacks and everything! You need never leave! (Unless you need to find a cash machine :cough: which I did…. and had to wait in line AGES for the only available one in the NEC….(for some reason the rest of the cash machines were out of order… grrrrrr). After I had been to the cash machine I went to get some lunch. I needed sugar and stodgy foods. So I went to a Free House/Bar/Cafe thing that was inside the NEC complex. Had coke and a cheese and ham panini. Was good. £6.60 total I think… pretty good considering they could have hiked the price alot due to its locale. Also got some snackage for inside, when I returned into the convention. (I went to get money for a Mecha-Musume mini figure, cos I only had £5 and she was £7.) The NEC complex is a BIG place, 20 showrooms, big rooms. There were two other shows on while I was there. The Golf Show(LOL) and the Christmas Festive Gift Fair….. I was so tempted to go in and be showered by the jollity. But I restrained myself from spending more….
I did get photos of my loot though. A fine loot for the limited cash I brought…. it was soooo tempting not to have got out more than I did….. No Hatsune Miku Figma though… :sulks: I did however, pick up another figure I’ve been pining over for a while now… Silfa from ToHeart2 Another Days! I’m soooooo glad I got her! And for only £20!! And I got the To Heart Akari figure which I regretted not buying in Norwich for the same price! £10!
I also got two more of the GoodSmile VIP trading figures. I had MaRyan from the London Expo. Today I got Komaki and Akari(Two Akari’s! lol. The Komaki Sisters! lol).
As I mentioned before, I got a mini Mecha Musume gal, (Pic if you read on)
Today, I was just looking round the market, and I came across some Sailor Moon dolls(looked mighty freaky they did…)but they also had the Moon Rod. It was only £4 and I’ve always wanted a replica magic wand from an anime. I’d love a CCSakura one, but the rods on those are shorter than in the manga/anime.
The wand itself is about 14.5 inches(36cm) And feels fairly hefty even without batteries. It makes three noises, which are all very annoying. I wish you could just make it flash without the noise.
Closer up shot of the detail on the wand. It’s purdy!!! I wike it!! I just wanna wave it around like Nagi in Kannagi lol.
Havin this just makes me want a CCSakura wand more…..Hauuuuuu
