Adventure Time print idea

I've been watching Adventure Time a lot since I bought the first DVD box set. And then I had a weird sort of idea pop up into my head. I was thinking about designing some Adventure Time fabric to be printed and create a skirt or something with it. Like doing the candy kingdom or a fun Finn and Jake inspired print.

Also I've been drawing a lot of Finn and Jake recently. I also have been doing quite a bit of studying of people and real life, so I've been slowly improving on that.

Also have been sketching on Paint Tool Sai. It's been really fun. Maybe I'll throw up some scraps to show later.

Anyway back to drawing with me.

Adventure Time Season 1 DVD

Just bought the first season of Adventure Time on DVD and I must say, it's a very fun DVD box set.

What is really nice about this is the price, it wasn't very expensive or anything. I bought it at my local store and it's pretty cute. Also it's got 26 entire episodes. Anyway I love watching it. Season one is probably one of my favorite seasons for this show.

The only thing is I wish there was a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack. But the DVD will have to do for now.

Soom and their Idealian line

I don't really like the company Soom and their line of ball joint dolls. I actually had one of their male monthly dolls and it was a huge disappointment in real life. I went back to look at their new dolls and just saw their Idealian line. Simply was blown away. Most of them are men, but you know that's not a bad thing with how beautifully the men are sculpted.

The only bad part is how tall these guys are, a whopping 72centimeters tall. Which may not seem like all that much, but god they're really tall.

The negative parts about it is that the dolls are limited to an ordering period and then never released again (usually). Which leads to the second hand market to have the dolls at something beyond ridiculous. We're talking about nearly a grand or more.

I need to keep up with these beautiful dolls. Even though they're huge and relatively expensive, mainly due to their size. I would like to have some to add into my ball joint doll collection. And it will give me a chance to get more males, since I'm more of a girl doll collector.

But man... These stock photos just look so beyond lovely.

Anime Expo 2012- A rather big "disappointment"

Well as you know I was at Anime Expo from June 28- July 2.In a word the whole con was a "disappointment".

We had problems with the hotel, the con itself, the tea party event; pretty much everything was messed up. The biggest reason being why was two reasons.

1. The X-Games

Yup, the X-games was held at the same time as the convention. Which made it harder to even move around town and there were tons of detours and everything. What was even great was our hotel lied to us about the booking of our room saying it was Anime Expo's booking systems fault when in actuality they gave away more hotel rooms to X-games people because they had to pay full price. So it was the three of us in one bed...

Now don't get me wrong, I don't hate the people who attended the X-games, just the event itself and the shitty excuses and roundabouts we got from staff and the literal detours we had to take to get anywhere in downtown LA.

2.The Anime Expo staff

Oh yeah, this part really pisses me off... THE STAFF HAD PRETTY MUCH NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON. Like for everyone one person who had an idea of what was going on... There was 20 who didn't. Most events were either canceled or moved, and then there wasn't enough adequate room that a lot of times we couldn't get into things. This Anime Expo ended up becoming "Line Con:Anime Version".

No offense to people who love to go to San Diego Comic Con, but it does have the nickname line-con for a reason.

But yeah, staff didn't know what they were doing. Fate/Zero GoHs and not much more....

Oh yeah, the Misako tea party wasn't even a tea party. It was more of a meet and greet. And we couldn't even get individual pictures with her, it had to be done as a group at each table. Made me kind of steamed. And sadly enough, I'm making the stupidest picture in our group photo that I don't like it. Yeah... So that was a personal disappointment.

There were some good things about Anime Expo though, and I am going to write about them, but I needed to get all the negatives out of me first.

On a positive note, at least next year my friends and I will be attending Sakuracon instead. So instead of me coming down to CA they'll be coming up here. And that should be fun.

TL;DR My feelings for Anime Expo 2012
Sadness and disappointment
