AX 2015 Merchandise

POSTED BY DANNY CHOO On Wed 2015/07/01 21:21 JST in Japanese Pop Culture

Its that time of year again - America's largest anime and Japanese culture convention Anime Expo opens doors at the LA Convention Center to zillions of fans from around the world.

I've just arrived in LA and have been setting up booth a wee bit. I've also been able to get around without a wheelchair - for now ><

Our booth is located in the South Lobby cleverly concealed behind a huge pillar which is actually the weak point of LACC - if that pillar falls then everything falls. For this reason, that pillar is heavily guarded by CCTV from all angles and they put us there due to the amount of Smart Dolls we bought in ^o^

Below is my schedule.

New set of posters implementing our tweaked design guidelines.
