Purgy went to "Comicon"! (Pics)

Yeah... what the title says, except that it's not officially comicon, but it's close enough, it's the same idea, just a bit wider of a spectrum of culture.

Regardless, I went, I took pictures, I bought a couple posters, I saw a lot of cool cosplay and goodies at the booths.

Unfortunately, I can only upload one picture here... so I'm going to drop a link to the forum post I made on my forum here and you can check out the rest there. Be sure to register and become another happy member of the community while you're at it!

I will however leave you with a picture of the posters I brought home with me from the convention, for the pictures I took of cosplay you will have to use the link above to check out my forum post.

I wish they would unlock the basement so I can go to these events. Atleast they let me have internet.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Shame... you're really missing out.

Are you going to get those posters framed?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Of course... not a chance in hell I'm just taping them to the wall.

Just gotta find frames for them.

Make sure you get something well suited (no pun intended) to these sexy posters.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Certainly. Kinda wishing I hadn't passed up the Yuno Gasai poster I saw at another booth, it was lower quality... but it's still Yuno.

And I love Yuno.

Maybe next year.

wow Yoko looks hot XD

i thought there would be more pics, and some cosplays :(

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Soz, I'll take more next time. I got distracted by all the cool things to see and kind of forgot to take pictures of them.

'Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents'??? I wonder what groovy goodies are hidden from my view... looks fun though. Nice posters!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Oh... I wasn't aware guests couldn't view spoilers... Well... guess you'll just have to register.

Nice posters!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I know, right?


2013-09-30 23:40:52

Try not to jizz too hard on them.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I'll try real hard.

Hand over the Yoko pic and nobody gets hurt

One thing I realized that I meant to ask- if Yuno is the chick on the left, who's the blue-haired chick on the right, and what series does she hail from?

(Updated ) Back-From-Purgatory responds:

That's not Yuno, that's Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagann. Yuno is the girl both in my profile picture, as well as my icon (Well.. that's her eye anyways). I didn't end up finding any decent art of Yuno at the convention unfortunately... otherwise I would have bought it.

On the right though is Black Rock Shooter (Yes, that's her name). Originally a product of the Hatsune Miku song "Black Rock Shooter", which later got her own OVA, and then later, her own mini anime series (Mini because it was only like 8 episodes).

Sorry for the mix-up, Purgy- I'll admit that I'm not quite as well versed in anime, but I have watched some. Haven't watched as much lately, partly because of finding other interests. Of course, I still enjoy what Mark Crilley puts out, as I enjoy watching the process as well as the final work- of course I saw him put out a fan work of Hatsume Miku.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

Who's Hatsume Miku? Is that a Hatsune Miku wannabe?

Purgy do you have a manga collection? I think I asked and you told me but I cant remember the answer

"Frack Pom Burgatory"
that made me chuckle.

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I don't, Manga is so freaking expensive here.


2013-10-05 09:13:52

Where was the "ComicCon" you went to, anyway?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:



2013-10-05 16:17:40

Was it by any chance Toronto Fan Expo?

Back-From-Purgatory responds:



2013-10-08 02:42:42

Have you tried ordering online?

I havent but it can be cheaper..

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I haven't, but if I ever find a manga I absolutely must have... that's probably what I'll do.


2013-11-04 00:16:29

woah its been a month already?!

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

That it has... I'm waiting for an accumulation of new news before I post again... which should be happening... like... tomorrow.

Time flies purgy ;w;

Back-From-Purgatory responds:

I know... I really wish it wouldn't, I'm gonna be too old to catch up soon. T^T
