A late kantaicon post, just some of the swag picked up. A few artist alley badges featuring Shimakaze and Akagi (shout out to paprika-studios.com!), the embroidered patch to commemorate the event, and some goodies from the special guest cosplayer Higurashi Rin. I recieved a poster that she signed, a dvd sampler of her kantai cosplay, a glossy book of her kantai cosplay photos, and a little personalized instamax photo (like a polaroid) that she signed and put a little sticker on. She also took a second photo that I signed for her to keep (she did this with everyone). Meeting her was certainly a highlight of the con, she was so friendly and her Akagi cosplay was incredible.
Probably not noticable in the little photo but we’re both holding the little Shimakaze plushy :o
