I scored at the swap meet, and got all of Giant Robo on VHS for $2, but then I caved at the Dealers Room and the Artist Alley, where I spent 30 bucks on a poster for Hayao Miyazaki's Daydream Data Notes, which I think is a collection of some of his manga work, and another 20 on a really cool EVA print.

I'm a bit disappointed at the lack of game-selling booths in the Dealer's Room this year. Normally there's maybe one that sells games on a variety of platforms, as well as Aksys's booth, but this year only the latter was to be found. I was hoping to use the $100 I got from selling stuff at the Swap Meet on a game I was looking for.

2 Large Prints (Ciel Phantomhive [Kuroshitsuji] and The Asia Trio[Hetalia]) $20
3 Postcard prints (Marisa [Touhou], Taiga [Toradora], K-ON! Girls) $5
2 Asian Trio Doujins (Hetalia) $18
2 Small posters (Prussia & Germany, Asian Countries from Hetalia) Free
5 Buttons :1 Germany, 2 China, 1 America, 1 Russia (Hetalia) $14
1 Asian Trio Folder (Hetalia) $8
1 Italy Keychain (Hetalia) $10
1 Yuuki/Zero mousepad (Vampire Knight) $3.50

I really wanted one of those Bodyline Lolita Dresses too, but maybe next year. Or I can get it online.
And the place where I got the doujins were also selling these super soft pillows and pillow cases. But I didn't have that much money. I wish I got a Hetalia shopping bag! They were only 3 dollars or something on Monday!

I didn't do a good job of keeping track of my purchases, which is why I went about $100 over what I anticipated spending. ^_^;;;

From what I can remember:

At the Swap Meet, all I got was X-day vol 1 which I lost some time ago.

At the Dealer's Room, I got an Aria #4 manga, a One Piece Cup, a Skelanimals short-sleeved hoodie, a Sho-U Tajima artbook, and this year's BAAU Down book.

I kind of went crazy in the Artist's Alley... got 3 posters, 3 postcards of One Piece and a volume 1 compilation of a webcomic (from the same booth), an Alice in Wonderland artbook from a booth with tons of beautiful artbooks, two commissioned pins, one commissioned half body drawing of me with my bf, a knit cat hat, 2 large posters and 3 smaller ones from various different artists, and a pin of a character I don't know but looked cute. ^^;

At the Arcade room, spent about $30 between beating the Metal Slug Arcade game to death and Air Hockey. :3

Food-wise, I went to the Fanimaid Cafe once, Peet's a couple times, and ate way too many steamed pork buns (I think I may be addicted).

Gundam Exia EXF model kit.

I'll be sure to sand everything down properly and wear glasses this time around when building it.  My cherudim looks so horrible because I was half blind when building it.
