Booths and Toys at the 11th Philippine Toy Con

I made a promise to you guys that I would write about the toys at Toy Con 2012. So here it is! Yay! After my post last night about the cosplayers I saw at the event, I got excited and I am now dedicating this blog entry to the booths and toys. To read more about the cosplayers, click here


As I mentioned, I went to Day 3 of this exciting event. The photos that I will share are what I saw on display on June 17, 2012. 


The first booth that greeted me was the cute Clipper booth. The bubbly crew invited me for a photo op. :) Oooh! Those Rilakkuma stuff toys is really huggable! 



There was a huge spot dedicated  solely for merchandisers that sell otaku items, makeup, cosplay items, and much more.
The Chikara Hats booth

A bird's eye view of the merchants.

Freshgear also had items on sale up to 70% off. 
The Komik Kon booth was so much fun! I joined the piso raffle and I won a poster and fan. 

Now this is what I love! Booths about upcoming movies! I remember they had Harry Potter 7 on display last year. This time, there were G.I. Joe: Retaliation and The Dark Knight Rises.


G.I. Joe booth and figures on display. 
 I loved this! The Dark Knight Rises booth! They had the authentic Batsuit from The Dark Knight Rises. Read more about this by clicking here. You'll be surprised! 

Next stop is the Maxicollector booth. They had toys of high quality, which were also for sale. 









Life size busts of Bruce Lee and other characters.





Chisel Town also got my attention because of the well-made sculptures. They had true-to-life figures of characters and celebrities.


Another outstanding exhibitor is Philippine Outpost. They help other people while carrying the concept of Star Wars. 

Helms on display. 
 Works of comic artist Alfredo P. Alcala were on exhibit. Wow! And double wow! It's also Batman-themed! Love it! :)



This is my favorite. Love the cape-in-the-wind effect (or whatever it is called)
Just beside Alfredo P. Alcala's exhibit is a huge Voltes V. This made me nostalgic as this was one of the first anime that I watched. 


Now here comes the best part -The Toy Con Gallery! The place was separated from the booths, stage, and other happenings. It was in an isolated room saturated with yellow light, which gave the place a vintage feel. 

These are life-sized figures! 




























Phew! So many toys so little camera battery! Ah well! This year's Toy Con was a success! It offered cosplay,  toy collections, exhibits. and more. No wonder it has become one of the events anticipated by hobbyists every year!


Toy Con 2012 was held at SM Megamall Megatrade Halls 1, 2, and 3 at June 15, 16, 17, 2012.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
