our little toycon adventure

Posted on: June 22, 2010

sunday, june 20, 2010 … since i had badly wanted that felt cap cham was wearing and i didn’t want the hassle of buying one from multiply and getting up from bed to answer the mailman, hehehe… i went to the 9th philippine toys, hobbies, and collectibles convention 2010 or simply, toycon… with max and jude.

chinese cat (left) ; japanese cat (right) … all pixxors are credited to jude. yehes, promoted ka na! check out his album here. although, you might need to add him as a friend in facebook. kekeke? so yes, nabili ko din yung felt cap… we wore them the whole day kaya naman we look like idiots and yes, it will have a separate post. lol. the day started out fine, same old route, same old mrt station, same old megatrade hall… hehehe. i used to assist for our school events there waaaaaay back in college.

i don’t know… sabak yata kami sa iraq, with kitty hats. hahaha!

so… we battled our way through gothic lolitas, super cute nung iba… frills and all ; there were sword-wielding people ; and ugly versions of naruto… hahaha! nung nakapasok kami, sobrang dami pa ring tao, kailangan ko pang kumapit keh max para di ako mawala. akala ko hindi kami mag-eenjoy. but there were so many interesting things and i have never seen so many toys in my life. ay, kaya nga toycon… lol.

siyempre, andun na yung mga cosplayers. there was one girl who came as … dun dun dun … spongebob! i thought she was cute ; tapos merong plants versus zombies stuff ; the kitty felt hats that made me go there in the first place ; marvel mannequins that smell like rubber but otherwise ozumm… ; manga, piles and piles of ’em! but the most interesting finds, para sakin ha, are these…

majin buu and little sasuke

i found majin buu in a small corner secretly hiding from potential buyers. hahaha! hay, ang mahal mahal mo majin buu! but ain’t he adorable? kamukha kasi siya ni ken, yung kapatid ni max. pareho silang malambooot. on the other hand, we found little sasuke outside the megatrade hall. minsan, may mga batang cool ang magulang, hahaha. nagpaalam muna kami sa nanay niya, kekeke? he reminded me of the boy in this post. he might just grow up like him.

we were almost out of the megatrade hall nung marealize ni max na nawala yung phone niya. so kind organizers from the toycon event, kahit meh pagka-imposible, maybe this is one thing we can improve on? security chervams? but hey, good times lie ahead. meh wants to go to the next one, wheee!

yun lang.
