(STGCC 09) Day #2 – GOKON~!

Photobucket

As mentioned here, my lovely harem of chibi girls attended a Nendoroid and Figma Gokon held during STGCC 09. There were close to 30 thirty Nendos and Figmas present and it was a flurry of dollie parts being traded back and forth. The other chaperons for the event include: Kodomut, zh3us, Nyanko-Sempai and Maverick. We parked at an open space near the Cosplay photo taking arena and ignored the curious stares that came our way as we got down to some intense photo-taking. =) Personally, I’m not great in photography. Much of my photographs are hit & misses as I fiddle around with expensive equipment. I did go to Art school but my major was in Animation (which I still suck at). =P Thus, such mass photo-taking sessions are great as I gleaned quite a few photography tips and tricks (i.e how to turn off the camera flash… =_=”) from fellow Nendo-fans.

Pictures below are mostly from my D50 and taken between me and Nyanko-Sempai.

But before the actual meetup, it was important to pack in some lunch or end up eating Nendoroid joints due to hunger. So it was a detour to MOS burger before joining the rest at Suntec.

Photobucket

Miku stakes her claim on the drinks while little Yuki eyed the deliciously warm Clam chowder soup.

Photobucket

Nagi is stunned by Miku and Yuki’s quick actions and claims the fries as her own.

Photobucket

Rin sneaks up from behind and monopolizes the burger.

Photobucket

“HOW DARE YOU! THESE ARE MINE!”

Yako storms into the picture and chases the rest of her sisters away.

Photobucket

And here are some sneak shots of the body bags that Nyanko-sempai brought with him.

Photobucket

An amazing spread of Figmas that the parts belong to.

Photobucket

Laid out ala CSI style.

Photobucket

I keep my own Nendo bits in a long tube of containers bought from Muji.

Photobucket

And the tower of parts stands out among the mess of scattered Nendos.

Photobucket

Too many Nendos = Too many Nendo stands. There was a mad rush to sort out the Acrylic stands at the end of the shoot.

Photobucket

And here’s the Legendary Drossel from comrade Kodomut’s collection. Picture taken with my DSLR but with the hands of Kodo-san.

Photobucket

Kodo-Rin meets Dcal-Rin.

Photobucket

And little Kodo-Rin is provided with Neko mimi and Neko Te from Zh3us’s collection.

Photobucket

The original Hatsune Miku Nendo gets to meet her cosplay-ee : Kagami-Miku.

Photobucket

And here’s a pic of the Midori trio: (left to right) Kodo-Kagami, Dcal-Miku, Zh3us-Kagami.

Photobucket

Annoyed by the lack of air time infront of the cameras, Yoko makes friends with Shana and the duo plots something evil.

Photobucket

Shana: “… we’ll jump into frame and slice them into half!”

Photobucket

Yoko: ” Yeah! We’ll show them whose’s the boss!”

Photobucket

Meanwhile, things were more pleasant with Zh3us-Haruhi who got acquainted with my Usamimi-Yuki.

Photobucket

But another Haruhi incarnation decided reenact some scenes from School Days with Vocaloid Rin.

Photobucket

Nyanko-sempai’s Figma Tsukasa got reunited with her twin, Zh3us’ Kagami.

Photobucket

“Kyaa!” Kyouka-sama gets  mobbed by Arthur clones.

Photobucket

And is so freaked out that she froze up.

Photobucket

Much to advantage of Neko lover Suzaku.

(** Fangirl note: Neko-lover Suzaku. -sniggers- In Yaoiland, Neko refers to the Uke or the bottom of a bl pairing.)

Photobucket

Figma Saber. There’s something about FSN that got the everyone excited.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Reika = Zero?

Photobucket

And once again, Lelouch feels inadequate in the Gun department. -sigh-

Photobucket

The Androids meet.

Photobucket

And Drossel-sama got friendly with the clumsy Mikuru-chan.

Photobucket

Yako sets her sights on an afternoon snack.

Photobucket

And Drossel might have sensed a disturbance in the force.

Photobucket

Haruhi introduces a must-have of our Nendo-shoots: A huge bottle of juice to quench our thirst.

Photobucket

One thinks she is  the ruler of the universe, one literally is the ruler of the universe.

Photobucket

“The Body Shop” ROFL.

Photobucket

After packing up, it was one last round to see the exhibits.

Photobucket

I wanted to get these cute blobs but they were unfortunately sold out.

Photobucket

Took more pictures of these lovely handmade pouches.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Next was a book booth.

Photobucket

There was so many pretty illustrated covers on display.

Photobucket

But this bishie caught both Tsukasa’s and my eye.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Some samurai bunny character that is simply awesome.

Photobucket

And I think this Unsleep Sheep describes my insomniac tendencies well. =D

Photobucket

Photobucket

Cute alien things.

Photobucket

But not as cute as the tiny animal plushies below.

Photobucket

Photobucket

*awwww*

Photobucket

Photobucket

Tsukasa follows in Rin’s foot steps and gets a ride on the meh meh.

On the way out of the convention hall, we spotted some interesting exhibits for a travel agency booth.

Photobucket

The setup was to promote Winter holidays to hokkaido. =D

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

After a long day, it was time to fill our tummies again!

Photobucket

We picked up dinner at Carl’s Jr.

(Notice the water droplets on Tsukasa? That’s a story for another time. =D )

Photobucket

Rin offers to dry Tsukasa off with some napkins.

Photobucket

In the meanwhile, little Yako rolls around hungrily and tries to eat a postcard.

Photobucket

Rin suggests a photo idea.

That turned out rather strange…

Photobucket

… and weird.

Photobucket

With that, the day ended and I crashed after reaching home. These old bones can’t keep up with too much excitement. Which is also why, with much regret, I didn’t tag along for Kodomut’s night shoot with Alafista.

Decided not to go for Day #3 of STGCC as I doubt I’ll survive the crowds and I needed some @home time with my new stash of manga/novels:

Yuki: “So… this is BL?”

Bought a stack of novels and manga from the book booth mentioned earlier in the post. And I spent enough money to buy two new nendoroids. ^^”

    Awesome. Your prime lens is really godly when it’s spot on!

    I love Tsukasa and especially love the “mehmeh” sheep riding shots. Did not know you took so much pictures too!. BTW, today when I went back, your I LOVE NENDOROIDS AND FIGMA paper is still stuck on the wall 😄

    • August 17, 2009 at 12:08 am

      Really? I totally forgot about it! We were in a frenzy when packing up and getting paranoid about leaving behind parts on the floor so we kindof ignored the things on the wall. =D Is it still there?

    Nice to meet you on Saturday! =)

    Mind if I link you from my blog?

    • August 17, 2009 at 11:03 am

      Sure thing! I’ll add you to my blogroll too. ^^

    Such cute photos of them all! I LOLed at Lulu’s “gun insecurity”.

    • August 18, 2009 at 11:06 am

      Hee… Lulu’s been having some issues with length. =P And I think he’s irritated at not being involved much in the phototaking. =)

      • August 18, 2009 at 10:10 pm

        Lulu should know better than be jealous for the lack of attention! …then again, we’re talking about Lulu 😄

        Which reminds me, I still have to look for a Suzaku… My Lulu’s very ronery

      • August 18, 2009 at 10:44 pm

        Ah yes, Suzaku. I actually got Suzaku as a gift first , which prompted me to get Lelouch, so that the boys could accompany each other. =DDD
