Japan expo report, last part

Marathon, did I say marathon?
It took me 30 min to reach through the conventions alley to the cosplay changing place.
No time to apply make up exactly as I wanted, I have to rush to attend the cosplay photoshoot!
I am ten minutes late since it took me 15 min to walk to the editor's booth T__T
Luckily, the photoshoot began later than previewed!

Here is an extract from Objectif Costume photoshoot


I take a moment to examine some goodies shops, but the shopping area was so badly organised it was hell finding what you wanted.
I found a Gundam wing model kit in promo!


I decided to leave at 16h: although my train is only at 18H27, It's always better to have extra time...in case train/metro/rain/strike problems arise.

The FMA Wallpaper was made by Romi Park, the Japanese voice actor (seiyuu) for Edward Elric!

There are so many manga I bought at Japan expo, first because it is difficult finding them in my town, secondly because they would occupy me for the hours of train.

Here are some pics of things that caught my attention!

Satoshi Kon exposition.

Satoshi Kon was a mangaka artist who contributed to some of the best anime/movies: Paprika, Patlabor 2, Jojo's Bizarre adventures, Perfect Blue,  Paranoia Agent etc

He died last year because of a cancer.

This exposition detailed all his work and exposed fan arts/messages/drawings made by several authors in memory of this artist. It was a very touching exposition. T___T




Ki-oon booth: Judge
This editor had put a scene with human sized  statues figuring the heroes of the manga Judge.

I discovered an incredible figurine maker team: Tsume arts!

They make incredibly detailed figurines which you can spend hours looking at! Very beautiful, original and precious figures which shocked me by their size (more than 30/40 cm of high), their textures, the delicate and precise paint...they are the best figures I have ever seen so far.

This manufacturer is young but its level is already one of the best in the world.













The pics don't make honor to those figures. I have spend more than an hour looking at them closely, they are incredible. Remember they are very big and detailed, details which are hard to see in my pics.
Their members were very gentle and patient, they were more than happy to explain and detail the making of processus of each figurine.
HERE IS THEIR SITE: http://www.tsume-art.com/
Here is a short list of the work: Ikki (Saint Seiya), Gaara (Naruto) Maka (Soul Eater) Kenpachi (Bleach), Ezio (Assassin's creed)...
