wonderfest! [ T O K Y O ]

Wonderfest is a place where you can buy the coolest plastic characters you won't be able to see anywhere else. I'll explain. So, Wonderfest is an event which is held twice a year (s/w) in Tokyo, and it only lasts for a day. This day is v important for plastic figures creators as it's their only opportunity to show and sell their works without being fined for the copyright violation. They can create any characters they want without having any rights to, but only these two days a year.

The next Wonderfest is on February, 9th (i.e. next Sunday), and I'll be there for four different reasons:

1. The figures that will be sold there are unique, just because it's prohibited by law to sell most of them anywhere outside the festival.
2. There's a great possibility that it won't be garbage, because it's a place where the chairmen of the big corporations search for talented people to hire.
3. There will be tons of adorable cosplayers there!
4. I need to buy something cute.

I'll go there for the first time next Sunday, so obv I have no pictures to show you. But I know the one who can! Or rather, I know the one whose pictures I can show you. I got interested in this festival after I saw these Valkorn's pictures:





So my point is that everyone from Tokyo who reads me should better be there on February 9th!

Here you'll find more detailed information (admission price/open hours). And here's the exact address in English:

2-1, Nakase, Mihama-ku, Chiba-shi, Chiba-ken 261-0023

I hope, you all will have a great weekend no matter where you spend it (except if you're a socialist)!
