Got my gear set, time to go
Coffee to fuel me today
Waiting for teh trainnn
By the time I was on the Rinkai line it was packed...
Met up with Arina, Then headed to the Circle Participant path
All the Participants Entering Tokyo Big Sight.
There were actually people waiting up here. Never knew people waited to enter this close.
LOW AND BEHOLD: MY TABLE
We were of the early crowd, in a half hour people of the early crowd, in a half hour people will start to flood in. Arina taking a photo here.
Hall 6! Touhou for all XD
First look at our table, topped with ads
Set up, complete
Our little sign, indicating our table number
Kitchen tool to display badges was perfect
Arina behind the table
Me! behind my table! <3
Soon more people arrived and began setting up
Finally got my hands on a Catalog
There I am!
Kurot was participating at the other end of the hall. I got to meet her and she bought my book, but I didnt have my camera (doh...) but she was cool. She said she`ll be doing touhou for Summer Comiket
lol behind the scenes
quite suddenly a ton of people came pouring in...it wasnt even opening time yet
We figured that they allow people in early to line up that they allow people in early to line up for the popular circles.... I wonder where you line up to get in so early...
...Well from here the battle began. I was at my table pretty much the entire time with the acception of taking a few bathroom breaks. Arina couldn`t really watch the table for me since she doesnt know Japanese, so after a while she went off to buy stuff. I, well, was pretty busy actually selling and taking requests for sketchbooks. I did a total of thre requests for sketchbooks. I did a total of three sketches-
The first person requested Chirno. The second Person Requested Remillia but I gave the sketchbook back to him without taking a photo. darn.
The third person handed my a piece of sketchbook paper and asked me for Daiyousei. I drew it, but he never came back. oh drew it, but he never came back. oh well, his loss.
I sold a number of books that I could never sell at some other convention all three days combined. Surprisingly, My Doujinshi manga sold the most, followed by the art book, sold the most, followed by the art book, then my most, followed by the art book, then my brothers book. The Badges went quick.
My Doujinshi- Touhou Youseigokoro: Sold 11/15 Books
The Art Book Touhou Blaze: Sold 6/15 Books
My Brothers Yorozuya!: Sold 2/10 Books
Total: 19 Books sold
pretty Good for a first timer eh
over 25 badges sold, Selling out of Reimu, Marisa, Sanae, and all three versions of Daiyousei
Well it was a quick seven hours, before I knew it- it was time to leave
Marina and her boy friend came and met us. Arina was tired and went home, but we went and had something to eat and chatted for a while.
We went and had curry at the Shinagawa Station
Finally met them after couple tries!
Marina draws the webcomic - Within Shadows
I got back home, it was one tiring day but it felt a bit strange now that six months of work that went into this one day is now over.
I told Arina about Circle Revolution, as this is the first step I`ve taken to build that group. Now that I`ve successfully participated in comiket, I can do it again easy and maybe help others to do so as well.
....well, that ends my day for today.
