Shall I be doing one of these everyday? We'll see how much time allows. Since this is day 0, there isn't that much to do. I should have taken more pictures (and apparently the ones I did take end up sucking) so you'll have to make due with what I have.
I got my badge thanks to Gia for offering an internship! I waited literally less than 4 minutes to get it. The registration staff was awesome and gave me a badge quickly:
Look at that 1337 Photoshop (... Paint) skillz there bruh! ... I was sad that they didn't include a lanyard so I used one from a previous year.
Since I went with one of my friends, we waited in line for her preregistered badge. Oh jeez I should have taken a picture of the line. It wasn't too bad because it ran smoothly but still after getting my badge, her wait was forever. I believe we waited for 45ish minutes. That actually isn't bad but still, 4 minutes versus 45 minutes...While roaming around, I went to the Swap Meet that's on today. There's another one tomorrow that I'll be participating in. Anyway, here's a couple pictures of the area
Sorry for the really fast shots. I didn't want to sit still and take a proper one. Once the convention rolls into Day 1, I'll take more proper shots. Promise!
Oh man I already spent money and I haven't even gone to the Dealers' Room yet! Here's the stuff I bought:
These were from the Swap Meet.I hope those figures weren't bootlegs... but oh man it was such a steal if they're real! I got the Nendroid AND the Figma Yuki for $20 total! The seller got it as a gift from her sister and she never watched the series so she was just selling both of them together for $20! They're quite awesome, I'lll take a proper photoshoot after Fanime weekend is over (aka when I have enough time). The Yoko phone charm was bloody adorable. I think I got jipped off the price ($12) but it's so adorable.
Am I excited for the next coming days? Hell yeah.
