HarumikuHarumiku5 years agoLoot
Hello guys, this is my first blog so I hope you like it!

Well today I attended manifest (Melbourne anime fest) in Melbourne Vic Australia. Let me just say that this is the best con for figure collecting! They have so many amazing stalls with figures and some with awesome discounts (although some prices are a little hefty xD) yeah it's really awesome! For anyone who attended today (18 August) I was cosplaying as umbreon from pokemon with mori sticker on my forehead (don't ask) with ranmao from black butler prince dosellmyer from princess tutu and a silver long haired bleach person (forgot name D:)

LOOOT~~

R4 madoka DVD collection 1 2 and 3 ( full series)
I was really hoping to buy the box set but madman ran out. That's okay though because they had all the DVD's. oh and on the first volume there is a singning today, I got the DVD singed by Kyle Herbert (madoka's dad)http://i1315.photobucket.com/albums/t582/harumiku/F2021D98-92E0-4927-8F15-F1099B5C8FC4-186-00000032D7578B8A_zps65b4caf8.jpg

I've had my eye in this beauty for ages <3 she has been my grail ever since I first saw her <3 but being a poor student doesn't exactly help with collecting figs. I finally raised. Enough to get her and picked it up from a private seller on eBay today <3 very very happy that I finally got her, will write a review soon :3

There's one problem with this though. I need to buy new shelfs before I can put them in any spot otherwise the shelf will break Dx

Luzai (5 years ago) #1679725It may have been a coworker, I believe I was mostly in scaled figures for Supanova and wasn't there for the whole con.
Either way, yay, I'm glad you that you got an awesome pucchi! :D

Haha thank you :3 I was very excited ^.^

justineski (5 years ago) #1679736I don't know if they found out who did it, but I heard they did it twice- so maybe not ><
I was lucky to have my cousin to take me when I was too young to go :) Manifest actually used to be at Melbourne uni a few years back, I personally liked it more than the showgrounds but the event has grown so big now it'd be impossible to host there. Glad you enjoyed it :) Its my favorite con in Melbourne at the moment too ^^

Yeah, I only strted going with a friend when we both really started getting into anime, wow 2006?? Very jealous!

Harumiku (5 years ago) #1679590Wow tamamarket, this is probably really unlikely but, do you remember at supanova this year on sat a tall girl with longish brown hair buying a madoka pucchi who got ultimate madoka and was very excited? It's probably a long shot xD but I remember I brought her there there this year by a blonde sales woman who was nice. again Probably a long shot xD

Luzai (5 years ago) #1679540It's a lot of fun! A lot of hard work too, but it really pays off. :D
I work for the Tamarket crew (who are an awesome bunch) so if you ever see a short blonde girl with glasses working there feel free to come say hi!
Supanova is awesome too! Always fun going there and they have some really great guests.

justineski (5 years ago) #1679443A lot of the traders know me and my friends well so we like to support them even though we know we can find them cheaper elsewhere :) and we did find a few lucky bargains too!
Its good you didn't go Saturday, that was when someone set off a smoke bomb in the traders, everyone had to evacuate outside into the cold for over an hour.
I've always gone all 3 days since 2006 since I have my own routine now XD. Friday - buy buy buy! Saturday cosplay, screenings/ any other events. Sunday - the auction and any last minute buying.
I didn't cosplay on Sunday, only on Saturday.
This is me and my boyfriend (if you can see it XD) www.facebook.co...

Luzai (5 years ago) #1679468Woo! Nice loot!
I went the Sunday to work at one of the traders booths. It was a lot of fun (although I didn't have quite enough time to see everything) and I picked up some nice, cute loot. Manifest is always a lot of fun! Melbourne is a great place for good cons. ^^
