FanimeCon Day 1 & 2 – The Report Through RoleplayPosted: May 26, 2013
I forgot to make a post about the first day yesterday, so I’m just going to write about the last two days in one post. Hurray efficiency!
Writing it up normally is boring though, so I’m going to present the story through an abridged roleplay between myself and my wallet on each day.
DAY 1 – IT BEGINS
Riyoga: “Man, everything important started at 2pm, I’m an hour late!”
Wallet: “Don’t worry about it, there’s no way anything could be sold out already within an hour, and I’m good to go!”
Riyoga: “True, I guess there’s no need to worry. I wish they didn’t have Artist Alley in a separate building behind the convention center this year, but not much you can do about construction.
A few minutes later…
Riyoga: “WOAH THIS BUILDING IS HUGE! Look at all of the booths! There’s sooooooooo many of them!”
Wallet: “Don’t you dare…”
Riyoga: “Man, there was so much great art this year! I’ll probably get even more tomorrow!”
DAY 2 – IT CONTINUES
Riyoga: “A brand new day, which means this time it’s time to head to the Dealer’s Hall!”
Wallet: “Just… just don’t go crazy like yesterday. Please.”
Riyoga: “Most stuff in the Dealer’s Hall is overpriced like crazy, so I doubt I’ll buy anything unless I really want it.”
Wallet: “Fair enough.”
At the Dealer’s Hall…
Riyoga: “Oh man, THREE different Noizi Ito artbooks?! Oooh, this one is really nice! I NEED IT.”
Wallet: “It’s decently pricey, but it also gives you something to get signed by Noizi Ito at Anime Expo that you are totally going to find a way to attend and will be wandering around (Author’s Note: This is definitely not a shameless plug about my future presence at Anime Expo).
Riyoga: “Exactly! So I’m buying it!”
30 minutes later…
Riyoga: “Well, there doesn’t seem to be much else that I want. That was easy.”
Wallet: “That’s fine by me, I prefer it this way.”
Riyoga: “I guess. Oh well, time to lea… wait, what is that?!”
Wallet: “Oh god, what did you just see?”
Riyoga: “It’s so neat! I have to get it!”
Wallet: “W… well I suppose that’s not unreasonable. It’s nice to have something tangible you can use on a daily basis and… oh god what does that price tag say? Well, as long as it’s just that…”
Riyoga: “Wait, what’s THAT?!“
TO BE CONTINUED?…
P.S. This is what happens when I’m too lazy to write a normal post. You’re welcome for those pictures, though. I’m gonna go pass out now in preparation for tomorrow.
