Picked up a new purse today at Fanime with a much more … suitable color and size, shall we say, for my purposes. Most of these I’ve already had or I’d already shown in previous loot pics; the only new one in the picture is the one with Leon, Judas, and Chaltier. Didn’t buy much in terms of official loot or figures since it was kind of hard to be wowed by any of the figures in the Dealer’s Hall when the figure pair of your dreams just got unveiled the day before (even if it was without paint lol). I did finally pick up the Official World Guidance for Zestiria (in addition to the Tales of Series Animation Historia), although my Japanese is far from good enough to understand it all, I can at least appreciate the pretty reference pictures and use them as needed.
I was also happy to see more people cosplaying Zestiria, as I saw 4 or 5 Mikleos wandering around the con so that was a nice contrast to last year, when the only Zestiria cosplayers I saw was @orchids-skyflame and her friends.
I was also really happy to see a few people from Tumblr at Artist’s Alley! I was going through there looking for people who had Tales or SoreMiku fanart up for display, so shout out to @say0ran-arts @ancorae @rythe @mitikokite and @auraspirality ! I loved getting the chance to chat with you at your booth and I look forward to seeing more of your artwork in the future!
