Fan Expo 2008 Day 1


I just got back home from Fan Expo which started today. It was fun and I met Rin (pretty easy to find him ^^), one of the bloggers in my comrade list. We were just chit-chatting and mostly talking about his recent vacation in Japan and summer comiket. Check out his coverage of Comiket Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3. I am really looking forward to his loot post honestly lol and makes me really jealous when he told me how much figures cost in Japan compare to here XD.


Walking in the Sky Walk which connects Union Station, CN Tower and Metro Convention Centre where the Fan Expo is held

I think day 1 is pretty quiet as usual since most people usually go on Saturday , although, there are a lot of people still and there will be even more people tomorrow I bet. Sad thing is not a lot of cosplayers that caught my attention and I am really picky in term of taking pictures of cosplayers. A lot of Bleach and Naruto as usual ^^.




Rails view from the Sky Walk. Union train station is a major train hub in Toronto.


Little kid and her mom said hi to Storm Trooper and Darth Vader. I was surprised she didn’t even cry.

Toronto at Night

I told myself before I went to fan expo that I am not going into shopping free mode, but, impulse buying beats it. I have absolutely no self control lol so my loot of the day :


Type-Moon art book ($42), Elis Hossen 1/8 PVC from Canvas 2 ($60) and Fate/Tiger ($42).

Stay tune for Fan Expo Day 2 tomorrow and hope you guys enjoy all the pics ^^.
