Loot posts are forever late. Yep. Anyway, Rainbow Gala 12 was last December and somehow, I managed to buy more artbooks and cosplay photobooks this time round. So this means this post will be very image heavy. Delicious art is delicious!
I was so happy when Reika announced that she’ll be coming to Rainbow Gala! However, it meant I’d have to queue for hours just to see her and buy her photobooks, heh. She started selling meet-and-greet tickets at 1pm and I was already queuing just after 11 am. Thankfully, the wait wasn’t as long as AGCHK – that was absolutely insane and disorganised.
So after buying her tickets just after 1pm, I decided to enter the room and wait for another hour inside. Luckily I did that because I was about 2nd or 3rd row towards the front. We also had the opportunity to take photos with Reika too! One polaroid per person and you can also use your own camera/phone if you’re quick about it. I got lazy with my own phone and was content with getting just a polaroid. I’m hoping if Reika comes again in future, things progress just as smoothly and organised as this time! (Though perhaps if the queuing time was shorter, then that’ll be great)
Ah, a side note (mostly for myself): next time for Rainbow Gala, I’d really have to get there at least 11 am because they hand out cards that indicate what time you’re allowed to enter the doujin hall. So arriving just after 11 am, we got cards for entering at 1:30 pm, I think. Just, wow. At least it’s better than queuing for 3.5 hours or so outdoors like back in RG8, I think it was.
And now for photos!
Up next are photos of the other cosplay photobook I bought, featuring Tei and Kin who are both local cosplayers. Yep, this was the photobook whose flyer I picked up at the Shingeki no Kyojin only event and then later pre-ordered.
I like their image placements for their entire book. Good stuff there (aside from one photo whose quality was far too low and therefore pixellated. Shame that it happened.)
And now for doujin artbooks:
And this next doujin artbook was the biggest/thickest one, being hardcover and all. It’s by the same circle that produced this artbook with delicious art (more photos in this post) that I bought in CWHK36. More delicious art is appreciated, eeheehee. It came with a small notebook and two postcards.
The art is seriously too beautiful. Oh my god, this circle is going to make my wallet bleed if they pump out quality art like this every time!
