PAX Prime 2013 Swag

PAX Prime 2013 drew to a close and I have returned with this year’s swag and loot. I broke last year’s record for shirts. The amount of lanyards available at various booths was pretty ridiculous, too. If last year was the year of random tote bags, this was the year of lanyards.

I was quite surprised to see the Hatsune Miku Project Diva game at the con as well and I tested it out for the first time, failing miserably like I did for just about every game I tried at PAX. In fact, I was so horrible at driving and gaming that I crashed not only the car but the game and console in a demo of DriveClub.

Like in the past, just about everything shown in the photos below are for sale or trade or free to good homes. You’ll be able to find the goods on eBay (here and here) or you may contact me directly.

Back From Sakura-Con 2013

One of the best conventions ever. I didn’t think it’d top my 2012 experience, but it did.

I accomplished everything I wanted to do, which was to meet some of the guests of honor at the convention and express my appreciation for their work and thank them in person. Looking back, I probably offended people with my broken impolite Japanese. I’m very sorry.

Thank you, Sakura-Con 2013, the wonderful staff of Aniplex, FUNimation, and ACP, and fellow fans of Sword Art Online and PSYCHO-PASS for making this con experience possible! みんな、お疲れ様でしたー!

Going to Sakura-Con 2013

It’s that time of the year again. Sakura-Con 2013 in Seattle, Washington, from March 29th through 31st.

I will be volunteering as Silica at the Aniplex booth in Exhibitors’ Hall at block 335, 234, 333, 232 and official Sword Art Online events and panels (except for the Saturday night concert) for all three days of the convention. As you may have guessed, Sword Art Online appears to be the main theme of Sakura-Con this year and an amazing team of SAO cosplayers (in collaboration with ACP) will be working the Aniplex booth. Please feel free to stop by, discuss the finer points of SAO, and take a photo with us!

During my downtime and press conferences, I will be cosplaying Shimotsuki Mika from PSYCHO-PASS with a giant can of Hyper Oats. Free potted cactus plant for the first Ginoza-san I find.

PAX Prime 2012 Swag

Photos of nearly everything I got from PAX Prime 2012.
Not photographed: PAX badge, Moga smartphone stylus, and a set of Sonic pins that I gave away

I didn’t get any big-ticket items this year because my costume prevented me from seeing any sign about contests or lines (or most other people, for that matter).

Everything in the photos is available for trade/sale.

Going to Sakura-Con 2012


Image credit goes to ACParadise for photo #1 and #3
The only anon outside of ACP who took my photo for #2

Edit: Back again. It was a great time at the con! I only wish that I spent more time at the con itself instead of trying to fix everyone’s costumes through most of Friday and Saturday.

Urobuchi/Ota/Iwakami signed my Waver tie and Madoka guidebook. I will cherish them forever, even if they generate despair in the corner of my room.

And some highlights from the weekend:
