GAnime 2011 – Palais des congres de Gatineau

Welcome! Time to venture around my third Anime convention – GAnime 2011! Missing out on last years, I finally managed to go to all three Anime conventions (Otakuthon, Naru2u, and GAnime) within 2010 and early 2011. Maybe not all as I can’t get to Anime North due to transport and contact issues. Only went to Ganime on a Saturday though and found it to be be as great of a trip as Otakuthon’s.

(All images taken with a Lumix GF1 – Pancake lens; Varying quality due to lighting within.)

Being my first time there I got a bit lost with trying to find my way around this place. One thing I did notice that this place would be extremely great place if people ever wanted to meet up in-between Anime conventions for figure photo-shoots and the like with Dollfies. Or figures. A get-together with a mixed & members. Neat scenery and all in there. I took some videos but don’t think they’re worthy to be viewed so I won’t be uploading one anytime soon.

Side-note: Also, if you see yourself within my article and don’t want your picture up then do leave a comment and I’ll delete the image.

Meet up with a fellow figure.fmer by surprise and came across some Dollfie/Azone/Azure owners. I’m not familiar with the makes so take your pick on the name. We asked and I took some pictures with my Renge.

What? You thought I wouldn’t travel to a convention without her? She possessed me in Busou Shinki Battle Rondo! She’s a fox with the ability to poses humans. She did a fine damn job of it as well by possessing those that take a glance at her. Fox spirits are known for possess humans whenever they so please haha. Lovely doll, especially the kimono. Sorry for disrupting the ‘parents’ of the doll.

Gundam Model Exposition:

They had tables set out for these Gundam kits, and one Rozen Maiden statue. I actually liked this idea and think they should expand this to Dollfies, Figma diorama’s, Shinki’s, and etc. Whatever is out there they, Ganime, should open their doors to. Also, theres some nice painted Gundams that I took closer shots of.

Thank you for skimming/reading/viewing! I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did, or more. I’m pleased I finally made it to GAnime without missing out and got more than enough content from it. Whens the next time? Otakuthon? Doubt I could make it there, and same with Anime North.
