I know I mentioned that I was going to Phoenix Comicon this year (see Sailor Moon? No, Just a Uniform), but I never did say anything about how it went.
It’s hard to put such things in words, so I actually made a short video of it. Here is just a small taste of what it was like.
Now that you finished that, I thought I should give a few more details, at least about what I brought home.
You saw the grab bag I got at J-list in the video…
…and the random stuff that came out of it. Now what will I do with it all?
The train shaped food tray will probably be fun for lunch and stuff.
I’ve gotten a lot of use out of the travel mug. I fill it up with green tea for early mornings. Nothing like tea in a cute mug to brighten the day.
I haven’t yet used the leek pen, but it will come in handy.
I’m afraid the DVD titles aren’t very appealing to me. I may give them away or take them to Bookman’s.
I’m sure this clock thing will be useful as soon as I figure out how to use it. I think it’s really cute, but I kind of have the urge to whip out my glue gun and add bows or something to it.
The bento t-shirt is adorable, one can never have too many t-shirts. And if I don’t wear it as is, I could turn it into something cute.
Here’s a better look at the tag.
And this is the strangest thing right? I was surprised it was a Sanrio character. That’s right, the company that brought us Hello Kitty also created Kirimi-Chan. A character with a giant salmon filet for a head.
And this is a giant inflatable pork chop for you to wear on your head, because one of Kirimi-Chan's friends is a pork chop. I’m not sure what to do with it, but I kind of want to keep it just because it’s hilarious.
Now the cute stationery set. I wish I had thought to ask the vendor for a business card or something. All the stuff they had were so cute including this set. I’m still at that stage where it’s so cute that I can’t use this stuff for fear of ruining it.
When that’s over, I will probably use the cute bear pencil like crazy for drawing and designing. The pen would be great for jotting down notes, especially in the notebook. It’s perfect for shopping lists and such. The eraser is perfect because one can never have enough, and I can use the pouch to sort out these and all my other pencils and stuff.
Overall, it was super fun and hopefully next year will be fun too.
