I got there at around 12 and wandered around until they started the quick-draw comp (two people with whiteboards competing to draw a rendition of a comic character). Stood around cheering until Alana and her friend James (?) came up behind meh ._.. Stuck my hand up and waved it around until I got picked for the comp, and got stuck drawing an Anthro kangaroo character from some Aussie comic. Why, why! I can't draw Anthro's XP... came out alrightly, even though his head was.. so off. Lost because, according to Alana, the other person had drawn one which was deformedly funny.
Went off to buy stuff after that, with Alana stroking her Evangelion box-set XD. Wasn't able to resist the temptation to buy one of the Tales of Phantasia Trading Figures. It felt kind of heavy and didn't rattle much, so I thought it might have been Dhaos. But... It was a colour version of Mint! And I already had one of her! In both versions! Argggg... but Alana offered to buy it off me, for which I am uber muchly thankful for~ X3 Sooo, I bought a Final Fantasy trading figure (Sephiroth~! Cloud~! Gimme gimme). Pshh... got a metalic version of Rinoa instead. I swear I have crappy luck with these trading figures. And then we went to Darling Harbour to see Gerry at his work. And passed a place selling heaps of fudge along the way. Mmmm.
Anyway. Gerry had his lunch break at 3 so we wandered around until then, and I took some photos while we outside. Lots of people seem to be camera-phobic, but I still snagged one of Alana while she was looking at the camera XD!. Had food, ate lunch, arm-wrestled, the usual. And then we wandered back to Supanova, with Alana trying to freak out the pigeons along the way. Saw some uber spiffy Star Wars cosplayers. Bought a shiny!Sasuke pin for 5 bucks, and then found out that, should I win anything in the fanart comp, I would have to be there for the announcement to collect it. What a friggin jib! That means I have to go in tomorrow unless I want to be hyper pessemistic about my chances of winning anything. Ugh. Blah. *shake fist*. After that we pretty much went home, although Alana lost her spiffy freebie Madman keyring somewhere ;.;
It was alright/fun, but I reckon Animania was better. Soul Calibur 2 + money + bought prints + funny live Sailor Moon = spiffy!Animania ( - coolness of seeing Alana and co.)
I farking won.
I shook Marc Silvestri's hand. That was pretty cool. He wanted to know if he could have the picture too. Hell yes. I don't know if he wanted me to sign it or something. Maybe I should have followed it up. But after that I kind of.. left. It only occurred to me halfway to Wynyard station anyway. I'm not sure if it's condescending to think that Marc Silvestri wants you to sign a picture for him. He said something to me when I was up there anyway. Oh well. The cosplayers were cool too, and I saw Pei while I was there. Her Kill Bill skit rocked XD.
Anyway... they gave me some books from Kino, one which was a volume of Newtype USA, and the other was an artbook. A voucher would have been cooler, I guess... I need to get the last two D.N.Angel volumes. But it was pretty cool to have won (Mum: You can put it on your CV). What was slightly un-cool was when, upon half the winners not being there, they said they would get the prises to them somehow. @#!%^#4!!11!!!1. Oh well. I got an FMA badge while I was there. And I'm sure somewhere, somehow, I'll end up stumbling upon a photograph of me on-stage. I am teh known~ (somewhat... maybe)
