I arrived at around the period of mid-afternoon when the long queues and huge crowds have managed to grab their tickets and made their way into the convention hall. The experience of getting the entry ticket was blazing fast in less than a minute! ^^;

The special invited guests have been allocated a royal spot for fans to find and meet them with ease.
As a lover of J-Culture, my focus will be on the eastern hemisphere of STGCC 2014.

SENSEI NOTICED ME! \*^*/

*cough* back to topic *cough*

I have been a fan of Shirane Nao (DMYO) sensei's works ever since spotting her beautiful works of illustration on Danny Choo sensei's website. ^^;

Her merchandises sold out very quickly for both days of STGCC 2014 and I did not manage to grab any .. T_T
