New Arrivals: Nijicon 2015 Edition

{Nijicon 2015} Loot

So, not exactly new…Nijicon was a month ago.

For the Taking

{Nijocon 2015} Swag-01 [Nijicon 2015]

This is a combination of what I collected from the SWAG table and what came in the SWAG bag. Anyone want The Merman: Transformation? I’m not into mer-anything.

Across the Rainbow is Dreamspinner’s yearly YA anthology…I think. Well, I’m certain the nice folks at the Dreamspinner gave it to me, at least. I may read it, but does anyone want it?

More postcard-sized prints is what I need (well, prefer); they’re easier to keep. EK asked if I’d like them signed on the back and even though autographs are whatever to me, since she asked, I said accepted the offer. 
The Starfighter print came free with the purchase of Starfighter: Eclipse. I think, as a courtesy, artists should ask whether or not you want unsigned artwork signed before signing it as a matter of course. I have no idea when I will get around to playing the game.

My first purchase at the con. Sexy extras for Kori Michele’s Prince of Cats.
 I haven’t even read the webcomic, but the phrases “con-exclusive” and “con-only” seem to compel me.

{Alex Woolfson} Artifice and The Young Protectors [Nijicon 2015]

The bookmarks–which I will use in good health–came free with the purchase of both titles. Artifice was great. I’ll be getting into The Young Protectors some weekend soon.

Aldaria

{Itoshi & Aldaria} The Hourglass [Nijicon 2015]

I was going to wait for the digital because my digital titles get read more often and I don’t like A4 books–I don’t like large books. They are not really comfortable to read. However, being at the con, seeing the book in front of me, I could not resist. I have come not to mind that at all.

{Itoshi & Aldaria} Orochi no Kishi [Nijicon 2015]

I really have no need for large prints. I don’t hang things on my walls, so they are kind of a waste of money, but… it’s Sadao and that’s really enough, but it’s also Aldaria, so I really had no choice. Would you just look at him…

    I’d be scared of leaving one of those bookmarks in a library book…

    My barrier to purchase is much lower in person than online. Usually at a con it’s because I have money set aside especially for it, but I end up picking up stuff I’d never have purchased if it were just me, a credit card, and the internet. Good and bad in different ways!

    That Sadao print is something else. I have to pause every time I see it scroll by.

    • Fortunately I don’t have such occupational hazards to beware.

      Nearly everything I purchased is something I would not purchase online or had the opportunity to, but wasn’t in the mood to give it any real consideration. I tried to enjoy that part of the con as much as possible, so I just went with the flow after a while.

      Please believe me when I tell you that the Sadao print is one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever seen. I was beside myself when they pulled it out. I like my OTPs and there’s a lot of artwork I return to every once in a while, but this is just… I think I would really like it if I didn’t know the character or the story, but after seeing it for the first few times, I’d probably just have an enduring appreciation for it. However, it seems that because I know all about the character and the story, this print is just amazing to me. I am almost embarrassed at how much I love it.
