Being a toy collector, toy conventions are always a good place to look for good deals and hard to find toys and me and my officemates were really excited for this years ToyCon. Thinking back to the success of last year’s ToyCon I was really expecting this year’s ToyCon to be even more kick ass than last year. However, I was a bit disappointed and at the same time happy that I didn’t find any great toys today because it did help me keep my savings account fat and healthy. On the other hand I was really expecting to find a toy that would really beckon me to pull my ATM card out of my wallet and withdraw a healthy lump of cash for a toy that I couldn’t resist buying.

And of course who could forget the Cosplayers? ToyCons are never complete without these hardcore Otakus who parade their favorite characters with homemade costumes that are both amazing and sometimes painful on the eyes. I’m trying to be mean here but let’s face it, some of those costumes are not even worth a second look. But this year’s ToyCon did boast a lot of amazing Cosplayers that I found really impressive. A couple of my favorites were the Ranma 1/2 costumes, a hot Morrigan cosplayer, just browse through the pictures and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
