My Gundam Kyrios

It was on  Otaku Expo 2011  that I successfully completed my first Gundam, officially named as  Gundam Astray . That feat led me to discover that I have a passion in assembling mechas. So when I saw another Gundam Model Kits Caravan last  Best of Anime 2011 , I happily joined the queue for another round of assembling and detailing. The Gundam Model Kits Caravan:  The participants meticulously setting up their Gundam: My Gundam Model Kit We were tasked to setup Gundam Kyrios. It was a big difference to me because my first Gundam was a chibi version. This time, Gundam Kyrios is a full Gundam with less detailed parts.

The Best of Anime 2011 Coverage

The Best of Anime 2011 was one of the best otaku events I have attended. Part of my admiration for that is the venue, which was located in SMX Convention Center. The place was spacious!

I now love that place! This 2-day event was conducted on September 17-18, 2011. I only attended Day One. One outstanding feature was the various booths. There were educational booths, like The Japan Foundation and stalls from other Graphic Design schools. They were complemented by casual booths of Picstacular (free photo booth- yay!), Animarriage, and Gunpla. The food booth was Sam’s Maid CafĂ©. Of course, merchandisers were also part of this big event.  The Picstacular Photo Booth and the Gunpla Booth were the only ones that I participated in. Well, I love photobooths and I collect them. As for Gundams, setting them up
