Today, my brother, Lore and I went to the FanExpo Holiday sale. This was my first year taking part in this event, I wasn’t aware that this took place annually. People still came in all dressed up for the event, even thought it was -4°! Saw a lot of Christmas themed cosplayers though.
I saw some artists that I missed last year and some familiar faces that often take part in the Artist’s Alley. I ended up leaving with a decent haul:
From left to right bottom:
I finally decided to purchase Marceline with her guitar and hat, because really this depicts her character. Marceline is one of my favourite characters from Adventure Time. I already have the original one, but this one is a good add on.
I also purchased Freddy Fazbear stuffed toy from Five Nights at Freddy’s video game.
Umbreon stuffed toy, based on the Pokemon series.
The Nightmare Before Christmas tea stained art piece by Dara Gold. You can check out her work through here: Dara Gold Art. She even had tea-stained paper that you can choose from and she will draw your choice of illustration on it. They have the scent lingering around so it’s pretty cool!
The Gravity Falls Journal 3 (because who wouldn’t want to know what was actually written inside this book?) I also think I’d need UV light for this, there actually are blank pages.
Last but not the least, book/show based lip balm. I purchased the Polyjuice Potion, from Harry Potter book series with Vanilla Chai flavour and 2nd Breakfast based on the Lord of the Rings book series with Chai Tea Latte. This was made by Julie and Chris Ewing. They’re called the Popsquatch Designs. Check them out!
That’s everything! Now I need to figure out how to rearrange my cork-board to fit the new art illustration 🙂
Did any of you go to the FanExpo Holiday sale? If so, were you one of the cosplayers? Let me know what you guys thought of the one day event!
