What Did You Buy!!!

I'm just curious as to what everyone BOUGHT at the con!

I think i cleaned up a lil bit. I went not really having anything in mind to buy, n ended up leaving with tones of goodies!

I picked up a set of those latex bat wings everyone was walking around in, and a tail, AND the Bra! All crimson and black! SO NICE! and POSABLE!

I also picked up Ed's pocket-watch which came in a really cute tin, and with a necklace.

Ed's coat ( got a really sweet deal on it n couldnt resist)

An Ed and an Al Plushy (LOVE EM!) NOW I WANT A SCAR AND LUST ONE!!

and A Lust action Figure (i SO need a scar one now to go with it!!!!!)

That's all i can remember buying

Anyone else?

All I bought was a Digi Charat hat for 30 bucks, my friends said I got riped off. I was going to buy ears for my Mint from Galaxy Angel costume but the lowest the dealer would go was 50 bucks, my sister said she was trying to ripe me off too because before when she asked it was only 30 dollars.

Before the con, I already knew which posters and comics I want to get.
So I only did that. Did not buy any other things since I feel more satisfied holding on to my cash. I did find a super cheap deal on a digital camera on Friday before the con, so I got myself a new DC($57 only). This new toy is lots of fun at the con. I did accidently deleted one picture though but that's ok.

Ah, no dealer would let me haggle their prices down! Some stuff they were selling wasn't worth nearly HALF the price they were selling for, like these keychain thingies going for $5! Anyhow, here's my stash:

-Autographed photo of Brent Spiner (for my dad)
-Poster of wedding Yuna (for my sis)
-Kuroneko (for me)
-A Red vs Blue t-shirt that says "It's not pink. It's lightish red!" (also for me)

I wasn't given very much money, so my stash is pretty small, but full of sentimental value! ^^

Mostly manga 'cause everything else I can buy in china town or the Pecific Mall for A LOT less..heehee I'm so cheap. I did get a Konha ring for three buck *huggies ring* i love it even if it's turning my finger green! lol.

I bought a book from some horror guest--it sounded pretty darn interesting as she was explainin' the storyline. She signed it too (to moku! lol)

I managed to haggle a fair bit. I got everything I bought for 'discounted' through haggling and I didn't pay to get in to the convention so yay XD

Chrno Crusade Vol 1 - 6 (Manga)
Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles Vol 5 and 6 (Manga)
DNAngel Vol 1 (DVD)
Furi Kuri Vol 3 (DVD)
Naruto poster of Sasuke, Itachi, Neji, and of course, Kiba.
Inuyasha poster of Kagome/Inuyasha

Sunday is the best day to haggle but they don't always have stock left or it'll sell fast if they do. As I found out by waiting too long from one table to buy my Chrno Crusade mangas >_>

I concur!! XD

I only bought 2 manga to tide me over until Ohayocon when I can buy manga for even cheaper than $10/each cause of exchange rate happys. I also still have many more from Otakon (for less than $9/each cause of happy exchange rate) that I haven't gotten around to reading yet. -_-;;

I bought a crapload of Hello! Project/Morning Musume cd's from the booth that sold the little figurenes (I think they're called nac) They had a good selection of j-pop cds that weren't bootlegs or overseas copys, allllll offical . Prices were pretty good too although a lot of them are used but in decent condtion. Anyhow I'm rambleing, I'm just happy there was a table that sold the stuff I wanted They were nice enough to give me a free cd since I bought so much from them XD;;;
