-Dealers Room:

Gakuen Heaven & Hikaru no Go stickers

3 pins - Soubi, Haru wo Daiteita, Sukisyo

Death note apple & notebook charm

Two FF IV figures - Rydia & Cid

Really nice figure of a guy in leather, smoking, shirtless... that I can't remember what he is from! But, awesome looking! :)

Actually wearing some of the swag right now.


Other than that, the standard Otakon swag, Adventures in Vocie Acting, various other DVD's, CD's...I regret not buying anything from AA, thought that was mostly because I didn't have time.

Artist's Alley

-Second to last Dominic Deegan scarf

-3 badges (Sora, Roxas, Riku) from the table right next to Mookie, Snafu Comics

-a print of Zack Fair messing [censored] up around Fort Condor, by a nice Canadian woman whose name I forget. I forgot the print at my friend's place, so I don't have it or the card she gave me.

-A stuffed Paopu fruit keychain.

Dealer's Room

-A plush Mario ?-block that makes the coin and mushroom noises when given a bop.

-Small Haruko Haruhara plush

-Large Roxas plush

-10 The World Ends With You pins from the Kingdom Arts booth

-A Revoltech Gurren Lagann figure (swear I walked around the entire place 5 times looking for one)

-Had my Canti-emblem forehead protector fixed at the Morlock Enterprises booth. I had gotten it in 05, but last year the rivets popped out on one side. Jim (aka Morlock himself) pulled out all of the rivets and re-did them with the larger washers that the headbands are now done with. Free of charge, too. He's a great guy.

I got a Sword Of Omens replica and a Kasumi (DOA) figure.

One thing I now deeply regret NOT buying was the $80 Street Fighter Tribute hard cover art book from the Udon booth. I just now found out that it is a convention exclusive and will not be sold anywhere else. I wish I would have known that before I left. :( :::CRY:::

Otakon merchandise!

Both my wife and I bought the Otakon T shirts (the artwork was awesome this year), and i bought the blue polo shirt.

Does anyone know if otakon is considering selling the long sleeve button down shirts in the future like they did several years ago?

We also bought some buttons and prints from the Artist's Alley which were pretty cool.

The HLJ guy suckered me into buying the Clayz Miyako Miyamura that was released a couple months back. It's a nicely crafted kit but I'll never find the time to put it together ;_; Still it's a beauty. As beautiful as plastic polymer can be anyways.

Didn't get much else--JAM Project CD, t-shirt; Otakon t-shirt, couple volumes of Someday's Dreamer Spellbound.

I went straight for the JAM Project merchandise. I bought one of the special tour CDs and two T-shirts for myself. I ended up buying a second CD after my daughter stole the first one for the autograph session. :D I also bought another T-shirt as omiage for my son.

I would have bought JAM Project's new CD and DVD at Otakon, but it wasn't there. I ended up ordering it through CD Japan.

Aside from that, the rest was omiage for family members: a wallet for my husband and various keychain dolls for the other daughters.

I bought DaizyStripper's album CROSS and Dir en grey's Withering to death. :D

I saw a lot of prints that I wanted to get from the Artist Alley but didn't buy anything since I realized that there would be no way I could bring them home without getting crushed or bent.
