Title: Things that you wish you didn't buy...Fanime '08
Post by: shinjiboy on June 09, 2008, 06:36:25 PM
I bought some goggles for $30.  Now that I think about it, I really shouldn't have gotten it.  But at the time, I wanted to get something more for my Ikki Cosplay because it was rather casual and obscure.  But it totally wasn't worth it.  The lens give me a head ache and I look awfully bad when wearing them.

Do you think I can sell it back to anyone @ Swap meet next year?

I bought a set of manga I already have because it was so very cheap.  I just forgot I already bought the set last year because it was so very cheap then too.  Oops.

Wow thats a really bad buy if your plushies are rotting on their own.

I was gonna take it off of your hands for free, since it just collects dust with you.

Yeah, but if it doesn't collect the dust, then my plushies will. If I sell the Wii, then I can use the money to buy something else to collect the dust.

Food =3

I brought food from home but still bought food there.

That money could have been used to buy something.

Have a good May, $20.

I paid $15 for a single FFT figurine.
I would have rather paid that kinda money for a box that I [knew] what was in it. :/
I didn't get the one I wanted, heh.

We also spent money on food.
But then again, all we had was CANDY.
And I was never in the mood.
Next year, I bring actual stuff to eat instead of starving myself.

I've actually been looking for a pair of goggles, so I'll probably actually have cash by the time  Fanime swings round.  Instead of staring at the internet page with their high priced high quality merchandise I can't afford because I have no job.  -_-'
If I have cash by then I 'd be happy to take the goggles off your hands. :)

Cool goggles.

Um, I bought a FF8 Guardian Force figure that broke as soon as I brought it home for $20.

Also, I just didn't have the money I wanted because my mom owed me some money and didn't get it to me in time. So, hopefully next year I"ll have more money to spend on things i don't really need. kekeke.

DX FOOD. I spent way too much money on food. Also, maybe art? I am a sucker for artist alleys. I have bought so much art....and I really don't know what to do with any of it XD I just love pretty things so much.

Actually, more specifically, there's this one artist that made me a bit sad. They'll go unnamed because I don't wanna point anyone out, but I liked a lot of their work and so I commissioned a picture from them. When I finally got it, it was...well, not bad, but it's not at ALL something I would have paid that price for. And I'd seen some of their other commissions, so I don't know what was up with this one :(

A Haro keychain with a blinking LED light inside. It's large so it feels weird in my pocket, and you can't shut down the dang light without removing the batteries.

Oh God I am a HUGE sucker for the dealers Room >_< I tend to want to buy alot of things there.
But I [lucky] can control myself...so I won't go over board...I can't say that I did buy something that I regret...
I bought things that where hard to find...anywhere else...but I wanted to  kick myself in the ass because I wanted to buy the Nitro+Chiral merchandise but it cost so much T^T......then when I went to Yaoi con it was there for like $5- $10 gil cheaper O_O I was like OMG I could have bought this for more Gil at Fanime Dx
So yeah I was happy I didnt buy it there >_> but if I see an Asato VF I am scooping that up Dx this year at Fanime con.

Well, despite me really wanting it, I wish I hadn't had gotten the Turn-A Gundam master grade model kit. Why? Because, no sooner did I buy it, I was informed that a booth was selling their last Nu-Gundam (my favorite mobile suit) kit for some retardedly low price.

I nearly flipped out.

Although, the Turn-A does look nice  :)

Yea, lokisa has really bad quality items. I bought a belt and purse, and within two wears of the belt, the inner layer began to peel off and the front began to tear. The purses handle began to sag and soon, the handles were flimsy. Very low quality items.

I bought this frilly pink collar with a bell. The velcro on the back was weak, so it fell off after too much movement, so I ended up just giving it to my cat. her neck's smaller so it stays togeather better. She looked cute in it anyways xD

This was the first year I didn't overspend at fanime. I saw the thread and actually had to think about what I bought. The only thing that even comes close was the Gundam Seed Volume 2 DVD set, only because I was buying for a friend but he already had it. It was something that I already did plan on buying, I just got it a little earlier than expected :D

I bought a Sprite. Okay, fair enough.

BUT I used a $20 bill. The cashier thought it was a ten, and gave me the change as if I gave her a ten. That means I had to pay ten dollars extra for a Sprite.

I didn't hold a grudge, though. It's just $10. Ah well.  :-\

I didn't get it at the dealers room, but it's still something I wish I didn't get.

Ugh... every time I think about this I get pissed..

Well anyways, a booth had both Sara and Lotti (Sokou no Strain) PVC for $35 each and I ended up buying Lotti (cause I like her better). Turns out the booth next to that one had only the Sara PVC for a low price of $20. I ran back to the previous booth and asked if I can trade what I bought ,Lotti, for Sara since they are the same price. He declined and I was like " WTF!"...in my head of course..-_-;

So I walked away and was pissed for that whole day and still a little aggravated with the thought that I could have owned both =(

I almost...ALMOST wish I hadn't bought one of those $300.00 Midori dolls..but she's just so freaking cute. xD

I guess my actual regret would be those final fantasy potion drinks that were available for like $50.00 per sip, anybody else drink one of those? >_>

I don't really regret anything I bought, except this GIANT (I'm talking the size of my face) bell.  It was only $5, so not that much to regret, but I could have gotten food for my friend with that money... who instead had to starve.  The salesman was just so desperate, I was having a hard time saying no.  I don't hate shopkeepers like that, because they're only trying to do their job, but it just pisses me off D;!

Plus, I bought three figures and they were random, since the shopkeeper didn't want to open the box.  I got the same character all three times.  Those little figures were $9 each too!  I'll know not to do that again :/.

I regret spending about 150 bucks worth inuyasha goods (back at Fanime 04), i no longer care for that series cause it got old and very annoying! I SPENT 15 DOLLARS ON FINGER PUPPETS!!! 50 ON POSTERS!!


So does anyone want to buy the figures/posters from me? I'll give you all of it for 30 dollars. XD

On second thought, there were a few things I didn't need. I didn't need the Wang Liu Mei and Sumeragi figurines. 20 bucks a pop, ugh.. They're nice, but the were more expensive than necessary (damn fanboyism). Then there was the Gundam Seed DVD Set 2 I was buying for a friend, but I got it confused for something else so it turns out he already had it. At least I don't need to buy it again :-\
