FanExpo 2012 was a disappointment for me.
09:45 – 11:00 – I waited 1 hour, 15 minutes to buy tickets.
11:00 – 01:00 – The 3 statues I was hoping to purchase were no where in sight. 2 hours of looking, multiple passes through the vendors and I was just disappointed. Looks like I wasn’t going to get them (and that was the reason I went to FanExpo)
01:00 – 02:00 – Looking for the comics I hadn’t purchased in the last few weeks.
02:00 – 03:30 – Looking though the artist alley
03:30 – went home
Not including the comics, because those were things I would have purchased had I not gone to the con, I spent
$30 – Admission
$40 – Artbook
$40 – Prints
$14 – Little…Zelda mints and 8-bit..bead…things
Not bad considering I spent 10x that amount 2 years ago (seriously).
Anyways, to satisfy my reader (singular), here is my FanExpo loot:
$40 – Artbook
Honestly, for $40, this artbook was an awesome deal. Compared to the pricing of other artists, this is QUALITY, wrapped in an inexpensive book.
The artist, Daxiong was super nice and when he signed my book, he also painted a quick sketch (I’m talking, 45 seconds or something!).
Seriously, this guy’s artbook and art was the highlight of the convention for me this year. I love his stuff…and that’s why I bought 5 other prints (see below)
$40 – Beautiful aren’t they? I couldn’t resist. I’m thinking these will go great behind my Kotobukiya statue shots.
So that’s it. Not too much this time…
I will likely go to FanExpo next year but I am FOR SURE going to go the first day, when it’s less busy. I’m done with Friday and Saturday/Sunday crowds. It’s just too much to bear.
