Manifest 2011 – Friday

Whew~ The past three days have been so tiring yet immensely enjoyable (:
I attended Manifest (Melbourne Anime Convention) on Friday, Saturday and Sunday!
I’ll be doing three separate blog posts for each of the days, mainly because I took quite a bit of photos and having one long post would be a little overkill? Aha~ Anyway, let’s start Manifest on the Friday Morning !

I pretty much based this entire look off a fanart I found on tumblr/pixiv !
Although, I didn’t really wear the megane (glasses) because the only “fake” ones I had were those 3D popped out ones and I didn’t wanna wear my real glasses cos I had contacts on. And also, I find glasses are very annoying to wear .. but I guess since I don’t wear mine often, I’m not too used to it.

I was really unsure on what I wanted to wear for this day as although I originally had planned to do Shiemi (Ao no Exorcist), I didn’t have the complete outfit due to lack of time/money (and I kind of got lazy with preparation..) Also, Vu wasn’t cosplaying (cos he ceebed cosplaying as Okumura Rin) so I didn’t want to do anything too over the top? Anyway, I quite liked this outfit for something simple and nothing too outstanding ^_^”!

I didn’t end up purchasing much on that day, yet somehow, the total money spent went to above $100?! (Inc Food)
Anyway, I bought three plushies, a “mystery” mini-food box and a Manga Artist Collection #4 ! (Rest were freebies)

I was extremely happy with these purhcases!
Firstly, the Manga Artist Collection #4 is something that I’ve been looking for ages, I have volumes #2, #3 and #5 which were bought ages ago when I was in early high school, and I’m missing volumes because they discontinued it in Australia grr! But I was so happy cos it was only $25 when the ones I bought ages ago were sold at $50 ^__^!!

And then secondly, two of the plushies I bought were E. coli and S. aureus! !
If you don’t know what they are, it’s okay. They’re two different types of bacteria that I am very familiar with due to having to continuously use them for my labs at Uni! People thought I were quite strange for buying them; but I think only Biomed/Science/Med etc students would understand xPP !

Anyway, I think that’s enough for the post on Manifest Friday!!
Look out for the next two posts on Saturday and Sunday which should be uploaded fairly soon after this one ^_^”!
(And if you’re impatient to know what I cosplayed as on the other days, I posted a few pictures of myself on my tumblr ~!)

      I apologize if I seemed kind of confused at first xP I was kind of shocked hehe. I shall be posting some pictures of us soon :3

  • Hah! I saw the card with E.coli in your photo and was like, “WTF?! Why would they have those cards at Manifest?!” Hahaha they have similiar plushies at the Melbourne Museum!

  • Waaiiiiiii you’re so cute Melody!! I love your outfit! Even without megane it looks very complete and like the photo :D

    It’s crazy how easily money just flys out of your pocket an conventions! I try not to buy any food at the actual convention though because the prices are horrendously overpriced. Maybe at Manifest it’s different?? At Fanime a hotdog costs 6 bucks!! @___@ Not to mention a small box of Pocky is around $3?? I shed a tear each time I see someone fork over precious dollars for something that cost them only .50 cents *sigh* Then again they probably don’t care, but still it’s annoying! >_w< My older sister has a couple of them too :D Ohh and I just realized, is that a potato from Plants vs. Zombies?? LOLOL!! I'm glad you found the exact copy you needed and at such a good price too yayyyyy :D

    Purikura!! ;o; I'm so sad they got rid of the purikura machines at the mall……… the last time I used them was probably 2 years ago?! I regret not jumping in one at Fanime..! Guess I have to wait till we go to San Francisco blehhhh :((

    • melludee

      And omg yeah! I NEVER BUY FOOD AT CONS ;A; They are way way way wayyyy too overpriced ! We ate in the city after each day of the con cos its so much cheaper :I THEY JUST WANNA TAKE ALL OUR MONEY ON THE DAY ;A; ! Ughh. They tried selling me Pocky for $3 too! and I'm like :I I can get that for wayyy cheaper x.x ' !! And yessssssssss! It's wallnut from Plants vs Zombies *___* SO CUTE ISNT HE tehehehe /hugsssssssss/ ! AH they also got rid of the purikura near my place ;a; so now I havta travel ALL THE WAY to the city just to take some ;_______; /cries in a hole forever/

  • Hi! This blog is just WOW! ;) You look cute heyyy! But if you add lip-gloss on, you will look much prettier I think;)☆

    • melludee

      Ahah thank you >.<!
      I had lipgloss on but it kind of wore off and it was hard for me to reapply when I'm walking around ^^" ! And I don’t always like the stickyness of it :( But thank you for the tip ! x

  • Lol, another photo of you and Vu eating whilst at a convention!

    Is that … a Plants vs. Zombies Wall-nut plush in your purchases photo?! That game is ze bombbb! (Or should I say … Cherry Bomb! Okay, I’ll stop now.)

  • Omg, plush dolls for bacteria?! I’ve only seen plush dolls for STD’s which … were weird but they were still cute … especially Gonorrhea. XD; But ahhh, its such a cute way to not only be reminded of the bacteria’s name and appearance but it just makes your studies more personal and fun! *_*

    The cosplay you had on for this day is SOOO CUTE. ;-; I went on your tumblr to reblog some pics of you. D’: -creep-

  • *staring at your eyes* they are so biiiiiiiiiiig!! And you’re still just sooo adorable! love love love it~!! You sure know how to pull off cosplay so well!
