Hello how is everyone doing? It marks today exactly one week after the end of the convention I went to: Iberanime LX 2013. And it was GLORIOUS.
The moment I arrived I saw cosplayers after cosplayers... okay not that many. Around uh... let's just say that 30% of the people there were cosplayers.
The line was incredibly long... or so I was told, because I arrived quite early, I wasn't in the first 10 but in the first 20 to enter.
Inside... it was like a gateway to another world. Anime goods, manga, retrogaming consoles and games, trading cards, food... it was so epic!
You cannot believe how incredibly fun it was. Seeing all those things... made me really believe for a second that I was in Japan or something. I loved it. Of course that I didn't bought much (you can see the stuff I got in my gallery) but as I said, I didn't want to buy unnecessary things. I mean... I was eyeing a chibi figurine of Kuroyukihime (Accel World) the whole time and nobody got it. I so wanted her but then... what for? Decoration? I can't exactly decorate my room with a figure like that... if I lived alone it would be a different story but in this case... just no. (I also wanted a hug pillow if the characters in there were not so... uh... slightly undressed, they even censored one of the pillows that they were selling.)
Now I feel that I might regret it a little. Oh well. Maybe next time. after all, this is not over yet. Oh no. This specific convention happens twice a year but in different locations separated by more than uh... I don't know... 500-600 kilometers? Geography is not my forte... let's just say that this one was in Lisbon and the next one (happening in October) will be in Oporto (fyi it will be called Iberanime OPO 2013)
Anyway... I am writing a journal now because finally all my photos uploaded. If you want to take a look just go ahead and download these 128 MB of awesomeness: [link]
By the way, I am not in any of the pictures... I mean, if I was alone and I was the one who took them, it's only obvious.
... I expect to go to the next one as well.. I wonder if I can... oh well.
If you are interested to know, you can ask me anything you would like. Including things involving the pictures. Just tell me the name of the file, k?
