If you read my previous post on Katsucon 18 (<–and if you haven’t, just click the link!) you probably know that I LOVED the Merchants’ Hall at this year’s Katsucon. I went to town buying merchandise. I just found so many great things that you don’t see in you’re everyday (American) store. Such as…
…this wonderful Vampire Knight print! The best part – I bought it for only $15! The colors are GORGEOUS and Zero & Yuki look awesome. This will DEFINITELY be going on my wall soon!
Again, if you read my first post about Katuscon 18 (<– Yes, that is another link to it!) where I posted a ‘sneak peek’ picture of a Vampire Knight product, you might be curious as what it is. Well, this is it:
A $3 pack of Vampire Knight stickers! If you’re a fan of the manga (or anime) and you want to stick Matsuri Hino’s artwork everywhere, than this is a great product for you! The stickers range in size and shape, and there’s 57 stickers in all.
Next, I bought 4 Vampire Knight plush dolls (plushies?)!
I just love the look of plush characters and how cute they are, and I just had to get them. The characters (from left to right) are Zero Kiryu, Yuki Cross, Hanabusa Aido and Kaname Kuran.
And just when you thought I was done with Vampire Knight stuff, low and behold, the Vampire Knight art book in Japanese!
I’ve seen this art book in Hardcover (the one I bought is a hard, paperback) at Barnes & Noble, but it was in English! So, I decided on a whim to just get the Japanese version because the experience is that much cooler.
I also purchased 2 wall scrolls. The first is a Vampire Knight scroll with Zero and Kaname, and the second is a Death Note scroll with L, Light and Misa!
Unfortunately my Katsucon shopping spree must now come to an end (not because I didn’t see anything else I wanted but because I ran out of money!) with my last product…
…the Chrono Crusade: The Complete Series DVD from the Funimation booth! The best part about it? I got it signed by Greg Ayres, the voice of Chrono! (Read about me meeting Greg Ayres & Chris Ayres here).
Well, that was all I bought! If you’d like to see the full list of Merchants in the Merchants’ Hall (and their websites) you can look at it here – http://www.katsucon.org/exhibits/merchants/
The next convention I’m attending is MANGAnext from February 24-26, 2012. I will be blogging, taking photos and tweeting! (Follow AureliaDiesel on twitter at @AureliaDiesel)
