This was the first year I ever bought prints, so I got an Attack On titan one, a Jinx from League of Legends, a Nagisa from Free!, and I commissioned a little chibi Armin from Attack on Titan<3
I got like 4 Key chains- the bisexual heart, a Vriska from Homestuck themed one, and one as a gift that had Rin from Free! on one side and Mikasa from Attack on Titan on the other.<3 I also got an Armin keychain to match the Attack on Titan Pencil case I got!! [Wow it's almost like i love attack on titan or something woops]
I also got one of those cute bats from CreepyKawaii!! I named him Spooks heehee<3
I also got a set of bows that were white and pink with white dots, and a set of the barrettes from TastyPeach that were Cakes with a little cat on it O:
Plus I found a Silent Magician Lvl. 4 Card that I snatched up as soon as I saw it because I've been looking for that card for YEARS but I've only ever had Silent Magician Lvl. 8 [Backwards I know]
I got two phone charms- the white bat from CreepyKawaii and a speech bubble that says Heichou!!
I got another gift for a friend that was a set of Artemis and Superboy from Young Justice stickers
And then I think the last thing I got was a set of steampunk earrings?
I had literally the best haul of my liiiife omg and I still went home with like $20
EDIT: I also got a batman top hat!! I completely forget about that every time i'm talking about my con swag because i bought that saturday omg

I spent a lot more than I intended to. I was only planning on getting a copy of Fate/Stay Night (the visual novel, not the anime lol) but I had more money than I thought I was going to, and Visual Novels USA was charging less for Fate/Stay Night than Hen Da Ne does. I'd been planning to get it from them, but as I'm sure people noticed, they bailed this year =<. So here's what all I ended up getting:

-Fate/Stay Night limited edition ($90)
-Fate/Hollow Ataraxia limited edition ($65)
-Saya no Uta (US regular edition) ($20)
-reproduction cel of Maya from Evangelion ($25)
-prize figure of Asuka from Evangelion 3.0 ($40)
-rubber strap of Caster from Fate/Stay Night ($10)

I definitely feel like I spent my money well. The Asuka figure was a tiny bit overpriced, but that's kind of to be expected since the updated design from 3.0 is really popular and there isn't as much merchandise of that design as there is the original. Also Visual Novels USA was awesome and I hope they come back. Major props to them for giving me a discount on Saya no Uta.

Also my boyfriend, who doesn't have an account here, just got the Misato figure that matches my Asuka. It was $35 (as was the Kaworu from the set), so I feel like they probably just upped the price on my Asuka a bit for the aforementioned reason. These are really nice for prize figures, though, so I'm okay with that.

Because I'm usually cheap as hell and don't really need/use much, I splurged quite a bit this year:
3 spiral-bound notebooks (1 Tsubasa Chronicle, 1 xxxHolic, and 1 SAO)
1 glue-bound notebook (Black Rock Shooter)
2 prints from a friend in the artist alley.
$35 total XD

I spent considerably less than what I have in the past years. I only got a $50 Judal/Aladdin doujinshi and commissioned a nice Zagan/Hakuryuu drawing X3 I wish I got the information for the artist though cause she was amazing :wink:

I never buy the grab bags because 95% of the time it isn't worthwhile stuff and probably things they just don't know what to do with. >_>

Didn't purchase much this year, I was actually a bit disappointed in the dealers room since I didn't see the figures I really wanted nor did I see the manga I wanted to purchase (Otomen and individual volumes of Hana Kimi- I know this is now in a different format but still, want to finish my collection in the same type of volumes I started in). There was also a plushie I wanted to find for a friend but they didn't have it either. I purchased:

A Hatsune Miku nenodroid
A black wig for a future cosplay
2 wig caps
2 Nyanko-sensei plushes for my friends
An Attack on Titan t-shirt for my cousin

I wish I would've taken the time to stop by the Arda Wigs booth after considering my new cosplay. :P
