. First of all—a big, big thank you to everyone who visited us at Toycon 2015! It was a while since our last event (Ozine Fest last April, the post of which I haven’t finished editing the photos for yet ; A ; Shame on me) and we had lots of new designs ready to be served along with our present collection!
Before I get into the highlights from last weekend—you guys may have noticed a decline in content from me the past few weeks D: In particular, the lack of What’s New Wednesday posts. We’re constantly releasing new designs, true, but alas, I haven’t been able to compile them in a proper blog post for ourweekly newsletters.
What does this mean? It only means—time to get ready for a long seriesof new designs coming your way! I won’t burden your browsers with a long-ass post with too many pictures to load, so I’ll be chopping up the new designs into a series of bite-sized posts, like they were meant to be in the first place.
Now that all that’s out of the way, onto Toycon!
We’re always looking out for the best way to display keybies. With new designs coming out every week, it’s more and more of a challenge doing our best to make sure all 700+ designs we usually bring to events are as conveniently browsed as possible by you awesome people.
Last Sunday, we got to test this newest innovation, thought up by none other than my mum:
The Great Wall of Keybie!
No more leaning towers of keybie! No more hard to turn stands! All the keybies are now spread out in all their dotty glory!! Next time there’ll be lights to make things even better 😀
At long, final last, Micah here with the aftermath coverage of Ozine Fest last April 24-26!
For those of you who may not know, I was still in Japan during the 24th and 25th. My trip was why we were iffy about attending the event, but my mum and brother were able to successfully man our booth without me on both those days. I just caught up on the 26th.
I was a little sick, but there’s nothing like the satisfaction of a day well-spent delivering keybie happiness 😉
Getting to see so many wonderful cosplayers is always something to look forward to when we attend events, and Ozine Fest didn’t disappoint. Not only did I see lots of quality cosplays—I got to see more than a few of characters I didn’t expect to see at all!
There was also one particular ‘cosplay’ I had to say amused me to no end:
It was… Magic-al.
And special shoutout to this Araki Shinji cosplayer! That pose and accuracy was enough to make me stop on the way back from the bathroom to take a quick snap.
It always makes me so happy when you guys share your con keybie loot with us! Keep em coming!
Held in Megatrade Hall 2-3 last January 24 and 25, Otaku Expo 2015 was our first con of the year, and man was it a doozy. The crowds were much, much less congested than last year, though that didn’t stop us from being busy.
The keybie spill below, for example, is a usual sight at ingress–no, we didn’t have an ‘accident’. I’m just arranging all 600+ designs.
Where did we put all these, you might ask?
This year, we had keybies on the walls instead of on our usual stands or table frames, which meant the debut of–the great wall of Keybie! Times two!!
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a picture of these majestically large walls in their totality, but rest assured–this won’t be the last you see of the Keybie walls.
