An incredible day at the AFA for day one! I'm already late for day two and need to dash so only going to leave you with a summary and let the photos do all the talking.
Today I'm MC with Reiko for the K-ON! girls and then the Otacool signing session with the gorgeous Alodia who will be in Mirai cosplay - her younger sister Ashley will be in Haruka cosplay!

Spent most of the day in armor before going back to the hotel to change. The hotel room has been hit by an atomic bomb as you can see from the photos at the end of the post. Hmmm, my iPhone 3.1.2 seems to be able to use any sim card and supports tethering now - not sure why ^^;

Went back to the AFA to catch Shokotan on stage before heading off to dinner with the big bosses from Good Smile Company, Cospa, Genesis Frontier and Bushi Road.

Good Smile showed some photos of a special product which will be out this December - its sooooooooooooo cute! Will change Nendoroid fans life (probably) ^^;

Was great to meet so many readers! Hope to get to meet folks who I missed yesterday. Thank you all for coming to see my shenanigans on stage and for dropping by my booth ^^ See you later - gotta run!

Ah - nearly forgot to mention - Mirai-chan will come with the camera that you see her holding. Stay tuned for pre-order info. If you look closely at the back of the camera, you can see something on the screen ^^;
