Title: Fanime 2017 Wishlists!
Post by: thepharaohinleather on September 01, 2016, 03:05:54 PM
Continuing this little idea from last year, post what you're looking for in the dealer's hall here! This way, staff can possibly get the type of vendors contracted that will sell those things. Remember, we gotta tell them what we're looking to buy! The staff aren't psychic~

I'm looking for merch from these fandoms/interests:

Yu-Gi-Oh! (mainly the original two series, as well as the new movie coming out)
Overwatch
Splatoon
Trigun
HunterXHunter
Steven Universe
Neko Atsume
Jinbei-san (I never see his merch at conventions but I think it would be super popular, he's such a cute whale)

I'm also interested in:

Lolita clothing/unique fashion
Corsets
Punk hats/accessories (Definitely hoping to see ArsenicxCyanide there again~)

Again, if there's something you'd like to see in the dealer's hall, post it here so the staff will know! I'm also excited to see what other people are looking for.

I rarely see things from Welcome to Night Vale, but then again not many people sell that.
With artists, I tend to look for original prints based on extremely nerdy and trashy fandoms, such as Homestuck, Undertale, Hetalia, etc.
As for vendors, I love when I find vendors that sell DVDs of animes and TV shows that are hard to near impossible to find.
Personally, those are my interests for artists and vendors.

Other then that:
Digimon
Bleach
Card Captor Sakura
Steven Universe
darkstalkers

Check out http://www.animedepot.com/
Their inventory is pretty massive. Hit them up via email if you can't find a particular title.

As much as I love popular animes, I wish there were some more merch from less popular ones...
EX: 91 Days, No. 6, and My Little Monster.
When I asked my friends what merch they wanted, they also said cosplay stuff or keychains (since they are all mostly cosplayers haha)

I'm not sure if they do conventions, but I would love to see Tasty Peach Studios or Sugar Bunny Shop in the dealer's hall! As well as other brands like that selling cute DIFFERENT plush, lanyards, and t-shirts. As much as I love the usual plush, it's nice to see variety in the style and subjects.

Unfortunately, Tasty Peach hasn't returned to our Dealer's Hall since 2015. Have you checked out our Artist Alley? The custom types of merchandise created by independent artists are usually found in there rather than Dealer's...

Unfortunately, variety will always fluctuate. The consistent vendors who specialize in key chains and gacha type stuff are usually Toys Logic and Anime Jungle. Everyone else is a kinda hit/miss based on whether or not their current inventory is "trending" at the moment... (LOL, ie: SPINNERS). It's not guarateed...One year a vendor will focus heavily on keychains, the next year...not so much.

Alrighty, I hope then luck will be with it!
