MetroCon 2011 haul~

Luckily, I live a mere 30-40 minutes away from the Tampa Convention Center in Florida, that happens to conveniently host Florida's Largest Anime Convention aka MetroCon. :P
This Past Weekend, June 17th-19th 2011, was the I believe 9th annual convention.
It's been my third time coming to this convention and my sixth convention in total since I was about 11 years old. This was my first year attending all 3 days of a convention, of which I was super happy about.

On to the goods~

 What bummed me out quite a bit was that they didn't even have a stand selling Pocky and Ramune, considering that's what us anime-tards thrive off of. :O 

And yes that's a pink bear with Bloody claws. <3  

MetroCon Weekend Pass: $60~ pass for all 3 days of metrocon, and to get into main events and vendor room. 
Badges: $0.25 each~ Bought them from the artist alley. Not sure what the people who made them were named... ^^; 
Gloomy Claw Key chain: $2~ >P
Gloomy Plushie:  $28~ So fluffy and dangerously adorable. I debated for basically two days on getting it, but I finally did.

Badge Close ups:
Top L-R: Edward(Full Metal Alchemist), Miku(Vocaloid)
Bottom L-R: Rin and Len(Vocaloid)

Gloomy Keychain close up:
You can also  stick your finger in the paw too.

Gloomy does in fact come in a variety of colors and although I'm not a pink person, I just had to stay with the Original Classic color of Gloomy.
I've been obsessing over Gloomy Stuff lately and wanting to make a collection someday. If you don't know who or what Gloomy is; Its A pink man eating bear hence the bloody mouth and claws. :3 Absolutely adorable in my opinion.
But come on let's face it Gloomy can soooo kick Hello Kitty's ass anyday. :P

*sigh* I really need to get a Job. :T Conventioning is sooooo expensive. D;
And so is makeup as a matter of fact...

NOTM: Rainbows of a Lavendar Sky

I was inspired by cutepolish's (from youtube) rainbow tutorial. So simple and cute, I just had to give it a try myself, but with some twists, of course and since I was itching to test out my new nail art items as well.

Everything used to create these Nails of the Week:

~Sally Hansen - Double Duty Base and Top Coat
~Revlon - Scented nail polish in "Gum Drop"
~L.A. Colors - Art deco in Yellow, Red and Sky Blue
~Sally Hansen - Extreme Wear in "White on"
~Seche Vite - Top coat
~Gem Wheel, which I found at a dollar store.

On a Side Note: 
Exams are Over, and so is school! For now anyway... 
Now I to just lay around and "Vegetate" as my now previous English teacher would have put it. O~O

Oh and Sorry I've been away for a little bit. My friend was borrowing my camera to do her project, which she never ended up using and kept forgetting to hand me it back... *Facepalm*
