Japan Expo loot!

jennissimojennissimo2 years agoLoot

Hello everyone!

Today I came back from my first con ever, Japan Expo, which is situated just outside of Paris, France. Even though there weren't a lot of events/panels I was interested in I had a great time looking around at all the booths and cosplayers. I thought it would be fun to share my loot since you don't see that many loots/diaries from cons in Europe.

[Warning: quite a lot of pictures, nothing NSFW though!]

So, here is everything I got! Out of the 4 days that Japan Expo spans I only went to 2, and I bought everything except the Kuroshitsuji art book on the first day. Let's start by taking a closer look at the stuff I got from indie artists.

This poster was cute and it was free, so I took one from the Éditions Akata stall. Apparently it's from a series called Magical Girl Site by Kentaro Sato. I've never heard of it before but I might check it out!

This gorgeous Babymetal card is from an artist called Moemai (www.moemai.fr/). I love her artstyle and she had some other gorgeous works at her booth as well!

These two are by Saphirya (saphirya.devian...) who some of you might know from doing art for the French Vocaloid-like program Alys.

Next up is a card of Kotori from Love Live! by Yoncco & Myong (www.japan-expo-...)! So pretty.

I can't remember who I bought them from, but this set of stickers of all 9 μ's girls was only 3 euros(!).

This Nico charm was the last thing I got from the indie artist area. (I can't remember where I got this from either, sorry.) The same artist was also selling a matching Maki but I didn't get that one.

Kana (the publisher that has released both the Kuroshitsuji manga and anime in French) had an offer for buying both the Book of Circus DVD/Blu Ray and the art book together but they didn't have any art books left the first day so I bought them separately since I didn't know if there would be more of them the next day (and there was also the risk of the DVD/Blu Ray selling out instead). Considering you got both a DVD and Blu Ray the price for Book of Circus was really good! It also included a small guide book (well, more like a pamphlet) with character and location design.
The art book wasn't too expensive either and Yana Toboso's art is gorgeous. Will definitely buy the second one if Kana releases it as well!

Good Smile Company had a booth at Japan Expo! The scales/figmas/nendoroids were pretty overpriced but these Nendoroid More boxes were only around 7.50 each so I decided to get one! (Unboxing at the end.)

The Kandamatsuri x Love Live! booth was one of the things I was most looking forward to so I hurried there as soon as I could! It was a small booth and they didn't even sell some of the stuff they had on display but I bought a Deka Strap with the second years, Kotori and Umi rubber straps and a T-shirt. All of the Love Live! girls look so cute as chibi miko! I was a little over-excited and the people in the booth seemed to think it was a little funny haha;;

I found more Love Live! stuff in a shop opposite to the Kandamatsuri x Love Live! booth... I bought the School Idol Festival Fan Book, and Umi tumbler, a folder and a fan.
I thought the folder was a regular folder but apparently it's for protecting can badges. It was perfect to protect the Umi/Kotori rubber straps though. The fan was something I just wanted to buy for fun at first but it became more of a necessity because of the high temperature.
With the Fan Book I received a code for a promo UR but since I play SIF on the English server I don't really have any use for it, so if anyone wants the code send me a message and I'll give it to you.

That concludes my loot from Japan Expo!
Here's what I got in my Nendoroid More box:

I got the Secret/Towel version (which I didn't even know existed lol). To be honest I would have preferred one of the swimsuits, but I guess I was lucky? The sculpt is pretty cute and it comes with a little floor to sit on and a plastic piece to support the Nendoroid.

Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

jennissimo (2 years ago) #3145241A girl recognised my fan too and was like: "It's Umi from Love Live! So cute!" haha. Do you know if they sold any other fans than Umi and Honoka? I was at Japan Expo Friday and Saturday and they only had those two (I wanted a Kotori fan...).
I had gone through all the stands on the Japan Expo website and I freaked out when I saw there was going to be a LL! booth lol.
