I went to CCK last saturday, it blew away all of my expectations!
Especially the size of the event! There were around 16,000 artists. JUST artists! So you can only imagine how many people were attending… If it hadn't have been sweltering hot, it would've been much more enjoyable.
Anyhow, here’s the basic rundown of my day:
3:30 a.m. Wake up, breakfast, wait for Chiaru.
5:30 a.m. Board train to Osaka with Chiaru Mukot, Chiaru Haru and other kinds of Chiaru.
8:00 a.m. Arrive at convention center more than 2 hours early (and yet there are hundreds already there and more piling in)
10:30 a.m. Event opens and large groups are lead in one at a time
12:00 p.m. Pretend to eat lunch, ship dollfie doll to mom, spend more monies on doujinshis and handmade stuff for Equus, Julia, Xabin and people into doujin.
2:00 p.m. Leave an hour before con ends to avoid 1,000’s of people going home at once… and yet train is still jam packed beyond reason.
Cosplaying and photography are strictly prohibited at this particular event, as such, I could only take photos of my buys after I returned. Mom, I didn't take a photo of your dollfie, but it was beatiful, and you'll like it.
I slept in Chiaru's house that night. We made vegan pizza, capirotada (I don't know why) and play mahjong. God, I'm so bad at it.
That's pizza. Vegan pizza with unknow ingredients.
It's almost a month without tortillas, it's driving me INSANE.
